Hi, I'm a new poster although I constantly check the forum during tww. I am currently 13 days late and I have taken numerous hpts... All negative. A few days before my period was due I had light spotting, brown in color. It was only noticeable when I wiped. I have loads of symptoms, nausea, sore BBS, darker nipples, horrible taste in my mouth. And the day before the spotting I had the strangest tightening in my lower abdomen and a warm sensation. Almost like a warm cloth was laid against my skin from the inside. Again, strange. I should mention that my mother could never test positive on hpts. Could I be pregnant?
Well, I think it's possible you're pregnant. BUT, if you are, then I think you did not ovulate when you normally do or when you think you did. The spotting you had could have been from ovulation. If that's the case then you might be pregnant.
Did you notice what your cm was like when you had the spotting? Did you notice any pain on one side (or sometimes I'll notice it on both)?
Are your cycles normally regular or have you ever been late like this before?
My cycles are slightly irregular, they range from 29-32 days. I've only been significantly late like this once before. But I've now reached my longest cycle. I had a trans abdominal ultrasound on Monday, just because my friend is a sonographer and wanted to help ease my mind. However, she was unable to rule out pregnancy. I have a thick endometrium with a little "blip" and a large corpus luteum. Unfortunately without doing an endovaginal scan we couldn't tell if the "blip" is a early sac. She's going to scan me again in a week. She seemed optimistic that I may be pregnant but couldn't say for sure, either way I definitely ovulated late. I didn't make notes on my cm the week I spotted, so I don't remember, but I have noticed the past week I've had a lot more than normal. Fingers crossed!!!
Just wanted to update that AF still hasn't made her appearance, I am now 20 days late. I am nauseous throughout the day and my breasts and nipples have become very tender and sensitive. Hoping for an answer soon.
I had my sonographer friend scan me again this past Monday. I have a thicker endometrium, but alas no gestation sac. So not preggors However, my cyst has doubled in size in 7 days. She didn't seem concerned, but I'm not so relieved. Hoping to start my period soon because I am now 24 days late. The cyst can cause irregular periods and pregnancy symptoms so at least I know I wasn't losing my mind, but I just want to move onto another cycle. Hope things work out better for you
