Hello ladies! My name is Kristina and my DH Rob and I are currently TTC our fourth. I was hoping to get some opinions and advice from you ladies...
Last month I experienced what my OB referred to as a chemical pregnancy, and when I passed it/AF showed on April 4th, it lasted for a LONG time. I bled heavily for a good week (maybe a few days more) then spotted for several days after. I finally stopped spotting just the end of last week. Lately my cycles have been shorter than usual, but this AF streak was much longer than usual. So on top of the chemical pregnancy, you can imagine my confusion of what my cycle is doing to me at the moment!!
Now, DH and I have been BDing almost every single night, give or take a night or two. Let's say I did end up having a normal cycle and ovulated... I couldn't tell you when exactly I O'd (and oh how I wish I were currently temping and charting to give you more useful information!). How long do you think I should hold out on testing? I would assume not until the end of the month, maybe into May, but I'm just all sorts of confused over what my cycle might be doing, ya know?
Thank you ladies for any kind of insight you may give! I'll be wishing you all baby dust this cycle!!
Do you think you have already ovulated? I am not sure on the chemical pregnancy and how it affects cycles... but I would think start counting from the last day you had bleeding. So I would start looking for O signs around 10 days from you last day of bleeding.
Thank you Keshlia! Do you think the spotting would count toward bleeding? I had mixed spotting, some light pinkish but toward the end it looked dark/brownish like old blood (sorry for the TMI). If that counts, then I don't think I'd even have ovulated yet...
