My last period started May 25th. My next was due June 30th (I have a longer cycle, usually 35 days about). Usually I have cramps and slightly sore breasts for a week before and the first few days of my period. This time I felt absolutely nothing. July 1st through July 3rd I had very light spotting, brownish in color. My period has always been quite heavy and lasted a full 7 days so this was obviously very different. For the last week and a half or so I've had AF-like cramping, some constipation, been very tired, and my breasts, lordy. They're very sore, particularly the nipples and around. Extremely tender. My nipples are also darker and a bit more... pokey. And I have noticed in my areolas that the veins are darker and more pronounced (which I've read is an indication of increased blood flow in pregnancy). Overall, a bit heavier feeling. That on top of being almost 2 weeks late is making me wonder. But I took two tests, one on July 6th and the other on July 12th, and they were both negative. I've read some accounts from women who had multiple negative tests well into their first trimester and I'm wondering if I'm maybe one of those who for some reason hasn't built up the hormone as fast, I don't know what to think. I know I can go to the doctor, I'm just here to hear thoughts and experiences that might make sense of it all for me. Thanks. c:
