Hello.

On Jan 23rd, I posted a question about a late, light, short period.

Basically, it said that after being about four days late for AF (which is very regular), I tested, got a BFN (though I think I accidentally peed on the control window), and then two days later I had a very strange period that was much shorter (about 2.5 days, total duration) and a lot lighter than normal (one day of moderate bleeding - as opposed to a first day of my typical heavy bleeding) and then a day and a half of spotting).

Well, one of the times my boyfriend and I BD since then was - as it turns out (it wasn't planned that way) - around ovulation...and I'm having odd symptoms. I'd say I'm probably somewhere between 8-10 days dpo right now.

Two days ago, I had some light spotting - it was dark pink/light brown, the consistency was like egg-whites, and needed one pantyliner and then was done.

For about 4-5 days or so, I've had EWCM whenever I go to the bathroom. Sometimes it's on my underwear, sometimes it's not, but it's always there when I wipe.

My nipples are VERY sore - to the point where I accidentally brushed a dish against one last night and it hurt. But even more oddly, I've developed these tiny brown spots...sort of scabby...on my areolas. I picked one off (ewww), and so did my boyfriend - but a few more seem to have appeared over night.

My appetite has been strange - sweets such as cake, which I normally love, have made me queasy. And I find myself feeling slightly nauseated when I lay down at night. Yet, also hungry at odd times. (I got out of bed last night and ate a hard-boiled egg.)

I honestly don't know what to think. We've been NTNP for about ten months, though with our work schedules, we only BD about once a week right now and definitely not always near my fertile days. We both want a baby, though, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up.

Any insights?

I think the only thing to tell you is to buy an HPT and take a test!

Upload the picture and we will al, look at it for you.

Good luck!

I'll do that - when I'm brave enough to test! LOL

I am certain a test is in order. It sounds like you might already know your answer.

Do you temp at all to confirm O? The EWCM now could be a sign that you didn't O yet or very recently and the spotting could also have been from O. You can get EWCM sometimes mid tww but I wouldn't think that getting it for that many days at a time would be typical.

I've convinced myself, for some reason, that I'm going to have trouble getting pregnant (probably 10 months of it not happening, though - as I said - we haven't been trying per se, and most definitely have not hit my fertile periods on a regular basis). So I'm almost positive this will be a negative, despite the symptoms.

Thank you! I'll test soon and we'll see.

No, we haven't officially been TTC, just NTNP - and I think we'll probably start TTC soon if this isn't a positive. So the most in-depth I've gotten is tracking my periods SOMETIMES on an app, and guessing my O days.

I think you are unnecessarily prolonging your wonder. Lol I am admittedly a POAS pusher but in your case I honestly think you just need to do it already.lol Then post a picture of the results.

LOL...well, I ordered some cheapie test strips from Amazon (after reading on here that they're fairly accurate and good for people who want to test a lot). They're due to arrive tomorrow, soooo...I guess I'll give it a go.

Hehe, I am NOT getting my hopes up, though.

And I heard that, too - but can't find any dollar stores in my immediate vicinity!

But I'm confused: Do I test today or tomorrow, when my period is normally due - or do I adjust for last week's late (and short and light) period and test around that date?

I hate to wait but your best result will be with FMU. So I would test first thing in the morning.

Or test now and then. Haha

Well, I tested this morning at 4am when I got up to pee - and it was negative. Not sure if it's too early (trying to remember when my period normally is - might actually be the 15th/16th) or if it's really negative. :-/

Don't be discouraged yet. I would test again Monday if she doesn't show up.

Didn't test yesterday (had a bit of a car accident - I'm OK - but was distracted). No period yet, though.
