So, I hate my body as it seems to do nothing right.

Let's start with background info:

When I was pg with Gwen, I spotted every month around the time AF would be due. I never got a positive HPT, though I was very obviously pg! My family has a STRONG history of BOTH of these symptoms. (My gram, mom, and I think even my aunt.)

Well, last month everyone (including myself) was positive I was pg. Well, my temp dipped and I "started." However, the bleeding was VERY light (to the point it's probably best described as spotting--maybe a pad a DAY). I'm still have pg symptoms (i.e. my mood swing the other night, nausea, lightedness, headache, hot flashes, cravings).

I didn't chart with Gwen so I don't know if my temp dipped while spotting during pg with her. I'm so confused! Is it possible to be pg with my temps the way they are? (I know my boss said her temp never rose when she was pg, but I don't know if it dropped or anything.)

What do you think?

ETA: I had cramping 7DPO (possibly from a ruptured cyst). I've set my charts to overlay so you can see both.

Why don't you try doing a blood test?..... Right now im on cycle day 31 and I've never had a cycle so long (my average is 26) and all the HPT's are negative, so to be 100% sure my DH is gonna do a blood test for me tonight (thank God he is a Medical Technologist so we don't need a doctors order and we don't have to pay for it). So if you do a blood test you can clear the doubt. Good Luck!

It's definitely not impossible, and the only way to tell would be a test... Good luck to you!!

Thanks ladies. I was just wondering if you all thought I was crazy. Most of the temps "this" cycle are above last month's coverline, but they are still fairly low....That's what's throwing me.

I just peed on a FRER and it's a bfn (of course!) I was expecting that. I guess I should find a dr. Any ideas on how to convince to give me the blood test with the current situation? (By the way I don't have health insurance so we'd have to pay for the test out of pocket.)

OH! And I forgot to mention my stomach is hardening! (And, no, I haven't been working out at all!)

I just wanted to say I'm sorry and I hope you find a Dr. that will do the blood test for you!
