So, my husband and I have been TTC our second child. My periods have been still trying to regulate themselves since my son was born, but for the past three months, they've been right between a 28-30 day cycle. Using an ovulation calculator, we attempted for an entire two week span. On Feb 1st, I do believe I may have ovulated because of the famous eggwhite CM. About a week later, from the 8th-11th, I had really mild and dull cramping. My period was due on valentines day, never showed up (I'm thankful for that for many reasons!) so I tested. BFN. Waited all the way until yesterday morning for another try. BFN. Prior to my period being due, I did test with about 3 other sticks, of course all negative. I've been using the FR Early Result, and then my husband brought home this brand "Answer" which I've never even heard of but tried anyways.
With my first baby, he wasn't expected, we weren't trying but we didn't mind if I did become pregnant, and I ended up becoming so exhausted and hungry that I just randomly took a test one morning and it was negative, waited three days, and it was positive. But the bad part, I don't remember how many days past my period being due that was. That might help a lot.. lol
Okay so as for symptoms besides the ones I already mentioned. My breasts went from an A to now having a hard time fitting in a B, and boy do they hurt, and have hurt for the past two weeks. For the past week I did have a lot more CM discharge but it seems to have slowed a lot. The dull cramps happen maybe once every other day and I actually have to pay attention to feel it. My stomach honestly resembles a 12 week pregnancy (I compared it with my pictures from the previous pregnancy) and is hard as a rock. I'm eating pretty much every hour and cant seem to be full for long. I usually pee maybe 2 times a day (I'm aware thats not exactly healthy) that's amped up to about 8-10 times a day, but I'm taking in the same amount of water.
In conclusion, WHAT IS GOING ON?! Is it possible that my hCg is just high enough? I mean, I guess I feel like if these symptoms were due to my period coming, then I don't understand why they'd be happening for the past two+ weeks and still no period and not a sign of it. But in the same aspect, if these are pregnancy symptoms, why no positive tests?! Do I wait another week? What to do, what to do!!
