My husband and I have been ttc for about 8 months now. Back in January, I missed my period. It returned about a week after it would have showed up in February, but my flow now alternates between being slightly heavier than normal or slightly lighter than normal. I've always had a regular period and flow with lots off tissue, and now it's mostly blood with little to no tissue. I've taken several hpts since my missed period, but they all come back negative. This would concern me except the past few months I've been extremely tired, nauseous for most of the day(eating helps most of the time, I've been more hungry than normal, and my boobs and stomach have grown although I haven't gained ANY weight. None of these are symptoms of my period, and hubby is also starting to tell me I'm starting to look prego. I know it's rare, but I've heard of women not showing positive on a hpt for months or still getting some form of a period. I have an appointment scheduled in a few weeks, but I was wondering if this has happened to anyone?

The heaviness of your period relies solely on the thickness of your lining. If you have a light period chances are your lining is not building up the way it should and makes implantation near impossible.

Sometimes something as simple as baby aspirin with doctor's protocol can work wonders. Thinking of you
