Hello. (This was also posted in the NTNP forum, before I realized this AIP one existed.)
On Jan 23rd, I posted a question about a late, light, short period.
Basically, the crux of that post was that after being about four days late for AF (which is usually very regular), I tested, got a BFN (though I think I accidentally peed on the control window), and then two days later I had a very strange period that was much shorter (about 2.5 days, total duration) and a lot lighter than normal (one day of moderate bleeding - as opposed to a first day of my typical heavy bleeding) and then a day and a half of spotting).
Well, one of the times my boyfriend and I BD since then was - as it turns out (it wasn't planned that way) - around ovulation...and I'm having odd symptoms. I'd say I'm probably somewhere between 8-10 days dpo right now.
Now, for some ...
Two days ago, I had some light spotting - it was dark pink/light brown, the consistency was like egg-whites, and needed one pantyliner and then was done.
For about 4-5 days or so, I've had EWCM whenever I go to the bathroom. Sometimes it's on my underwear, sometimes it's not, but it's always there when I wipe.
My nipples are VERY sore - to the point where I accidentally brushed a dish against one last night and it hurt. But even more oddly, I've developed these tiny brown spots...sort of scabby...on my areolas. I picked one off (ewww), and so did my boyfriend - but a few more seem to have appeared over night.
My appetite has been strange - sweets such as cake, which I normally love, have made me queasy. And I find myself feeling slightly nauseated when I lay down at night. Yet, also hungry at odd times. (I got out of bed last night and ate a hard-boiled egg.)
I honestly don't know what to think. We've been NTNP for about ten months, though with our work schedules, we only BD about once a week right now and definitely not always near my fertile days. We both want a baby, though, so I'm trying not to get my hopes up.
