My period is always 5 days long with spotting on the 6th day. So the fact that I haven't needed a tampon or pad is worrying me.

I was using tampons because I thought the flow would get heavier like normal, but... *TMI WARNING* there was just a small amount of blood on one side of the tampon after 4 hours! This has been happening for 4 days now. Is this a very light period or spotting?

My temp dropped below coverline so I know that means there is NO POSSIBLE chance of pregnancy right? What else would cause this?

AF was due 2/22 and I haven't taken a HPT since I was 11 dpo (2/18) and it was negative. My temps are still way low.

You only have one temperature below the coverline. The overall pattern is what counts. Temps can be affected by so many outside factors, don't put too much stock in just one temp. I would take another HPT.

Thank you for replying ladies.

Shawna~ I was hoping you'd reply.

My temp is above CL but.... my temp is still low. And no more spotting since late last night. I'm sure I'm just getting my hopes up, but this cycle is just too weird for me.

I know I should just go buy a test already but I don't want to waste the time or money if it's just going to be BFN.

sounds like you're as bad as me booboobunny! The reason I have no HPT in the house is because I pee'd on them all before 11 dpo.

Well I decided to enter in my last 4 temps on my TCOYF chart and it gave me the little yellow bird thingy!

So I sent DH a text asking him to buy me a HPT on his way home tonight. I'm so nervous. Ugh!
