AF is really screwing me over right now! I have that test on Sat. morning and I don't know what the heck my body is doing.

Mon.---Brown spotting....called to set up test. POAS= Negative
Tues---(Day AF was supposed to arrive) Brown spotting...one small patch red spotting
Wed.---Brown spotting
Thurs.---Even less Brown spotting. POAS=Negative

When I say spotting, I mean really just a little bit. I've worn a pantiliner this whole time but barely needed it. Something is really wrong. My periods are NEVER like this. It's never this light and it's never late...unless I'm pregnant.

I can't get that test done on Sat. if I'm pregnant but I really don't think I am. I have no symptoms and no BFP. I can't get bloodwork done because I have no insurance and I wouldn't be able to get the results back in time anyway. The doc won't be doing bloodwork on Sat. because he's just opening his office to do this test for free for me. There won't be any access to a lab.

What I'm thinking is, I'll go see the doc. Sat. morning. (it's 1.5 hrs from here). I'll tell him what's been going on with this period and let him decide what to do.

My biggest fear is that I'm having another eptopic or mc and I'm just not getting a BFP yet. My other fear is that I'm pregnant but not getting a BFP yet and if I get this test done...it will kill the baby (maybe the only chance for me to have a baby again.)

I'm really overwhelmed with this today.

Love,

I replied in TTC after loss, but wanted to post for you here as well.

Ask your doc on Saturday if he can do an u/s first, to see whether or not you're pg. He should be able to see something if you are pg.

Awe hun...how frustrating. I would call the doctor and explain what's going on. Perhaps they could do some blood work since they probably wouldn't be able to see anything with an u/s if you were pg cause it's so early. I'll be praying for ya.

Definitely tell the doctor. If you are pg, I'm sure he doesn't want to harm the baby either. Especially since he's doing the test for free, I bet he'll be understanding.

Oh hun - that darn af!!!! I hate when things don't go according to normal. I would say talk to the Dr. I don't knwo that you are pg - but symptoms sound pretty strange. ANd if there were ANY chance you were having an ectopic (although I doubt that) - I would think the test would maybe even be dangerous - since it would put pressure in the tube. I would call him - tell him what has been going on & ask him what he wants to do. That really is yor best option hun. I'm sorry I can't be of more help - best wishes!

Candace....your dr sounds like a wonderful person who only ahs ypour best interest at heart (as he/she is performing your test on Sat free)...talk to him/her...express your fears. The dr will guide you in the right direction and i'm sure will not put you at risk for any more heartache. I am sure a quick u/s before doing the HSG is not problem for him/her to perform. Know that Sat you will have a better idea of what's going on and hold onto that. for now breathe and take care of you! PM me if you'd like to talk.
Love,

Thanks for the replies, all. I'm not so freaked out today but I'm feeling really sad. I POAS again this morning and got a BFN again. I'm not pregnant but there must be something wrong to have caused me to have a period like that. I googled "light period" and found out that it can be caused by not having enough estrogen. It can be a sign of early menopause. I really don't want to think that I could be going through that but I don't know what to think.

I'm going to talk to my doc tomorrow and spell this all out. I'm not really afraid of having the test because I'm sure now that I'm not pregnant. I know he will do an u/s first if I ask him to.

This all saddens me so much because I don't want to be TTC. I want to be eight months pregnant, like I should be. Delaney might have been my last chance. It's starting to feel that way to me.

I've got to work on putting this in the Lords hands. I'm not in control here...that's for sure. I don't know what to say really except that I'm very sad right now.

This is a constant struggle for me as well. You are on the right path though...He will ease the heatache...He's the only way. I pray for us both to find peace in Him.

Many hugs to you Candace.
