My son just turned one at the beginning of the month, and I am still breastfeeding him. I got my first PP period on August 8th. I thought that I ovulated about 2 weeks after that, but then I never got my period. I tested (3 times) and it was BFN. My cycles were pretty irregular before I had my son, so I just figured that I'd wait for AF to arrive. Well, Sunday morning (Sept. 14th) during church, I thought that AF was here to visit. I had brownish discharge, and pink "blood" when I wiped. I was crampy, but not too bad. I thought that I would start bleeding heavily soon after, but it was just like it stopped. Then, yesterday, I had the headache from hell, and have been very bloated. Could all of this be signs of ovualtion, or could I be preggers? If it might have been implantation bleeding, how long should I wait to test?
Thanks in advance for all of your advice!!
I tested again on Friday...BFN.
Today (exactly one week after possible implantation bleeding), I have been somewhat naseous, and my nipples are tender (they hurt while nursing, and they don't usually do that...). I also HAD to take a nap during the middle of the day (but I attibuted that to my late night, and spending a couple of hours on the beach...we're on vacation). Could these be signs of ovulation, or a possible pregnancy? My cycles were irregular prior to my first pregnancy, so I don't really know exactly when I ovulate. I have been trying to watch for body signs, but it always seems that they are off-again-on-again. Maybe it's because of the breastfeeding? Who knows... Anyway, should I just wait a few days, then test? Or could this just be ovulation?
Well your symptoms sound more like pg symptoms then anything else but since you havent gotten a positive test yet I would get some OPKs and take them to see if you are ovulating. If you don't get a BFP sometime this week i would consider the discharge/spotting as your warning AF. Good luck. Keep us posted.
