Nearly every fertile female I know personally, with the except of two of my friends, found themselves either pregnant or giving birth or both last year. I thought I escaped. I wasn't actually preventing but I wasn't trying either. We've gone two years without incident but now I'm feeling different.
I have two children, ages 16yrs and 13yrs. Both times I was pregnant, I was essentially symptomless. With my first, I caught a cold, woke up often to urinate, and couldn't stand the taste of chocolate all before I missed my period. Afterwards, I hated the smell of chicken frying. Didn't take a pregnancy test until Feb. I didn't experience any other body changes.
With my second, again, essentially symptomless. I missed my December period, became ravenous, craving fried chicken. I tested in January when I realized I missed my period. Positive showed up midstream.
A third time I was pregnant in 2005, which resulted in a chemical, again, no symptoms. I have no idea why I tested in the first place and only got faint positives until AF showed up on time.
That brings me to now: Over the course of the last 12 months (I track on mymonthlycycles.com), I have only gone to CD 31 once. Every other time has been between 25 and 29. My O usually falls between CD 14 & 16. My average is CD 27. We DTD at least once every weekend in January. My LMP was on January 13th and I'm on CD 31 with no sign of AF. What I do have are symptoms that snagged my attention. I haven't noticed my usual sign of increased urination as I wake up one to two times on a regular now at night.
1) AF was due either 2/9 or 2/10.
2) My nipples have been hurting since either Wednesday or Thursday. Usually my breasts hurt for a few days before my period.
3) The sensitivity to smells has sharpened again. My son fried something dinner last night and I wanted to vomit.
4) Speaking of vomiting, I've felt nauseous since this weekend.
5) I've had some pretty crazy dreams including one where I didn't know if I was pregnant or not. I'd have a belly then I didn't then I'd have one again.
6) I had the weird breakout on my chest almost as soon as my period ended. Normally, I only get one the week before AF as a warning.
7) Food is taking a while to digest.
8) I sleep like the dead-- have been late to work every day over the past week.
9) I no longer feel sexually interested (I usually have a very high libido).
10) I cramped a lot pretty soon after my LMP and it continued for days (DTD on the last day) however the cramping stopped about a week ago.
11) I've been unusually calm for the past week. My youngest does yelling worthy things and I just give him a stern talk b/c I don't feel up to yelling.
Despite these "symptoms", I've gotten the BFN on ICs for the past couple of days. However, on two of the tests, I may have hallucinated a second line.
I wouldn't be thrilled to be pregnant but I wouldn't be upset either. This has just been one strange cycle. What do y'all think?
