Hi ladies. Sorry in advance for a long post. I have been experiencing things and finally want some closure so I'm hoping for some advice and/or opinions.
My November af started on the 18th and was regular. Fairly heavy and lasted 4 days as usual. I believe I O'd on the 28th. I say this because I had very much increased clear CM. My SO and I had bd'd atleast once a day, every day. We visited my dad out of state on December 3rd-5th so we weren't able to bd then. After coming home from our visit, my SO and I have noticed that I am abnormally tight and dry .
So going back to Nov 28th when I think I O'd, since about 7dpo I have been very tired and moody. My face has been very oily and breaking out. Also, I have been very thirsty. I feel dehydrated everyday and in return, I am constantly running to the bathroom! About 14dpo, I started having headaches, lower backaches, vivid dreams (had 2 dreams about a BFP), my gums are bleeding more than usual.
Around 16dpo, I had a burning in my left thigh. At this time, I had a "feeling" of being pregnant so I took a test. It was in the evening and it came back BFN.
16dpo was on Dec 14th and AF was due Dec 16. I believe AF came Sunday evening. It started with brown blood then went to red. It was abnormally light (only used 1 pad a day ) and didn't last as long as my normal periods. Since then, I have been overly affectionate, my face has started breaking out again, and still always tired.
Again ladies, sorry for the long post. Please tell me what you make of my symptoms and if you have any advice. This is all confusing for me because I have been told more than likely I have endometriosis. And I have been diagnosed with chronic depression. So, alot of the symptoms could be from the endometriosis, PMS, depression, or pg.
I still have a "feeling" I am pg but hate to see another BFN. Hoping for a Christmas .
Well there is always a chance your test didn't pick it up, but that with the several days of bleeding would make me say you are on a new cycle. Sometime women just have abnormally light periods. Maybe not a lot of tissue built up that cycle, I don't know. I have 4-5 day periods. Every now and then it will be 3 days and I only need 1 panty liner. The only reason I'd use more is because I need to change my underwear. Happens to all of us.
I do have a friend that got her "period" on time, but she was pregnant. It was a day of heavy, a day of nothing, a day of spotting, back to nothing, a day of heavy... went on for 2 weeks. She delivered this past January. I had one normal AF when I was pregnant with my first child. I was 8 weeks along before I got my first BFP!
That is weird, though. Doesn't happen often to women.
Do either of you chart or check your cervix? I have found it helpful. I might O normally on CD 17, and if I didn't check one cycle and O on CD 22, I would think I was "late." Really I wouldn't be. I had just O'd late. It's erratic now since I'm breastfeeding. Sometimes it seems like I am about to O, and it just goes away. =P
