Good evening! I am new to this whole thing, and I know I don't have all of the abbreviations down yet, but I will try my best!
My husband and I are TTC #1. I am 30 and he is almost 28. We are both so excited to have children. I am a high school special education teacher, so my job is rather high stress. Because of this, we planned a 10 day trip to Maui this summer. We just got back. We planned it perfectly so we would be there when I was scheduled to ovulate. I did an OPK every day we were there. It never showed positive, so we just tried every day anyway. When we got back, I went to the doctor as I was concerned. She did a progesterone test and she said that I did indeed ovulate. So, it did not make much sense. But, either way, while we were in Maui toward the end of our trip I started waking up at 3am every day with nausea (and I am Never Nauseas normally). I never threw up though. I found myself having to urinate more and having headaches. I also am dealing with dizziness and sore and larger breasts. My breasts seems to get larger and heavier as the day goes on and seem closer to normal in the mornings (which is strange I know!). Because I have no idea when I actually ovulated, it is hard to determine much. I have had no implantation bleeding, but I have had a strange pulling sensation below my belly button. I did not monitor my BBT, which now I know I should have, but my regular temp. during the day is always 97.6. It has been one degree higher in the last week and even went up to 99. I don't know if this means anything or not.
My period is scheduled to arrive on 7/31 (last period started 7/3/10). I have a perfect 28 day cycle. This TWW is driving me crazy! Today was our two year wedding anniversary and I was hoping so badly to get an early positive, but no luck. I am worried that maybe my brain is playing tricks on me and I may not be pregnant. Could this be?
It is hard to figure all of this out. When should I really take a test? Today I got a BFN. The tests I have at home have a sensitivity of 20mlu. I have enough to take one every day. I am just worried that this symptoms are very strange if I am not pregnant.
Hi Christie, I wish you the best of luck! Although this is a stressful time for you, I'm glad that you are sharing. I also found another blog that might help you see that this is all normal; the site is cant-get-pregnant . com
Hope this helps!
So, here is a new one for you....My period was due to come today. Yesterday I started with brown spotting which turned into brown discharge. I have never had a period come early, nor have I had brown discharge. There have been two small drops of pink blood that I have seen but that is all. I got a BFN when I took the test this morning. I have been reading on the internet and a lot of people have said that they get brown discharge at week(s) 4-6. This would be the beginning of week 4 for me. This may be , but I had a pap smear last month and all was good, and I have no STDs, so this really does not make any sense. Has anyone ever had this happen before??
