Hey everyone, I'm new to this site and was looking for some help, sorry in advance that i wrote soooo much, I didn't want to leave anything out!!
To start my husband and I have been ttc for 8 months now and since then I have really been trying to keep track of my menstrual cycels and I've noticed they are usually at least 5 weeks apart. April 19th I had my last regular period which was heavy and i was crampy for my normal 6/7 days. After that with the husband being away with work alot we don't have alot of time to BD but we were able to May 3rd - May 6th before he had to leave for work again and a couple days later i noticed pink spotting only when used the restroom it was probably around the 9th or 10th and I've never got that before (I'm not sure if that has any significance or not lol, it seems you notice alot more when ttc)... This is where I'm kind of confused May 19th I get bleeding again which is about a whole week earlier than when my period should come and it only lasted 4 days with the first 2 being heavy and the last 2 not, I was also not crampy at all during this time but as soon as it ended i got some cramps and I've been really bloated feeling and have tender breast/nipples since then. I took an 88 cent walmart pregnancy test which came up negative so I'm not sure what is going on (Also Back in early February I had an early miscarriage only a couple weeks along, i took a pregnancy test right before that and it came up negative too but my dr. said the blood and tissue i had was infact a misscarriage but this bleeding looked nothing like that and there was not any tissue in it. I called my dr and he said to wait and see if I get my next period but I'm going insane haha). I'm not sure what is going on with me...
the first time you spotted could have been ovulating bleeding and then the 4 day flow was your period. Just a screwy cycle especially when theres been trauma.. you know there are SOOO MANY things that can mess us woman up!!
I have a very similiar thing going on.. only at first I thought I calculated my days wrong due to irregular cycles from pain medication I was taking for awhile when I had kidney infections( uughh not fun) I was used to 35-40 day cycles and thought the early bleeding was IB or ovulation bleeding when actually my body was regulating back to my 29-30. Soo now what I thought was my 2ww has turned into a month wait!
GL and I'm hoping the best for you
Thanks for the responses. I'm starting to think the first spotting I had was ovulation bleeding now too and the second was a weird cycle now that I've been non stop looking online lol. There really are sooo many things that can change a cycle..us woman have it bad haha. I hope everything turns out ok with you MrsHoneyBee with everything you have going on too!! I'm still hoping there is a slight chance but I know it looks very doubtful now...maybe next time
Hi and welcome! I agree that the spotting was probably ovulation and the bleeding was a period. Sometimes we have odd cycles for no apparent reason. In any case, I hope you get your positive test soon! Keep us posted!
