Okay, on my fertility friend calendar it says I should be starting af on the 7th, but I'm getting af-like cramps today and I keep getting this sensation that "something" is coming out of me but nothing is there. I remember having something like this with dd2 and I kept checking and nothing was there. Then I tested and it came back bfp. What do you think this is caused by? I KNOW I'm pregnant, I just don't know how far along really, or when I should REALLY be getting af. Fertility friend calendar is only guessing because I'm irregular.
Is af-like cramps normal to have in pregnancy right before af would start? My bb's still hurt and it's been 2 weeks, I'm still queasy on and off, very fatigued, lower back hurts, pelvic region (and the rest around it...), and extremely hungry. I'm always forever eating. I'm also peeing a lot more nowadays. I still have cm, but not as much as I did last week. Is that bad???
this is my first baby but I did also think that AF was coming. I also got lots of cm plus about 3 weeks ago I had HUGE sharp pains in my left side kind of freaked me out and lasted on and off for about 12 hrs. On June 30th I was 3 days late so I took 2 tests and they instantly came back BFP. I went to the dr yesterday and he confirmed I am definately 5 weeks pregnant. Haven't had a lot of nausea yet and kind of hope I don't really will deal with it if I do but so far very little.
On the 22nd of June but my most fertile days were 19, 20, 21 and 22 was my ovulation day. We had sex on the 17th, 19th, 21st and of course the 22nd. So I can't say for sure when I conceived. I just know they say to count the day after ovulation ends so that's what I did. I have af-like cramps today too and a lot of lower back pain but I think I'm offically late on af today actually and not in 2 days. I'm not sure though. I'll see. Thanks for the replies!
Over here in Australia, if you are pregnant and unsure of your conception date/LMP etc, they send you for an ultrasound to measure and estimate a DD.
I'm guessing they do something similar (if not better ) over there, so I say go see your Dr and get a blood test and u/s done and keep us updated
hi i am pregnant with no 2 and i def had a lot of the same symptoms as you. I was really confused about the cm etc but the good ladies here settled my nerves. Ive since looked up a book i have called "your pregnancy day by day" and it bascially listed all your symptoms as normal for early pregnancy so your fine. And well done and congratulations as well.xx
Thanks for all the replies. JMichele, you're right because I'm supposedly due on the 6th (tomorrow). So, I really can test today even though all the other tests came back as positives..I guess I just want to test ONE more time. I kind of want to use a digi so that I can have for keeps, kwim?? I've never used one before. Can I use it a day before expected af though?
