I think I would be around 4 or 5 weeks pregnant - My last period was the first week of November. I was due for a period this past week, should have finished up a few days ago. Anyway, I noticed I was getting really bad cramps - which I usually do before a period, but then I noticed my period never came. I go by a mental clock - so I don't keep exact dates, I just get a pop in my head of "oh, I'm going to get my period." and then a day or two later I will get it. It's been like this since I was 12 or so - I'm 21 now. Anyway, my first pregnancy earlier this year I was incredibly sick - I couldn't hold anything down, ever. I had extreme nausea but I didn't have any cramping at all.

Anyway, yesterday afternoon the breast tenderness I had been experiencing completely stopped. My nipples went from their dark color yesterday and this morning they have returned to a light pink color, and my breasts are no longer sore or tender. My cramping has been getting worse, more frequent - I've had a small amount of brown discharge in the urine - but no blood or spotting that I've noticed.

I took a pregnancy test the other day and the second line was very, VERY faint - as opposed to the bright pink it was with my first pregnancy. Anyway, I'm having a lot of cramps now and I'm thinking I'm miscarrying? I just haven't been bleeding - but all of my pregnancy symptoms have disappeared. As of yesterday afternoon, my breasts are no longer sore, I'm no longer nauseated all the time and I'm feeling... Better? I guess. (Being pregnant makes me feel really, really sick.)

Are these signs of a miscarriage? Is there anything I can do to help it along? It's starting to hurt more frequently but like I said - there's no blood so I'm really unsure, but then again it just started yesterday morning/afternoon and has continued through to today and now I don't "feel" pregnant anymore.

How long ago did you take the test exactly? I don't know if you are miscarrying or if you had a chemical pregnancy, and how faint was the test? Could it have been an evap line?

If i were you i would call your OB and talk to them about maybe going in for a blood test. If you are pregnant and if you are miscarrying you are early enough that it will more than likely be a heavy period.

I wish I could offer you more but I dont completely understand exactly what you are saying.

I'm not sure what an evap line is? I went to the restroom just a bit ago and I had a small blood clot about the size of a pea.

And also, a chemical pregnancy? I don't think I've ever heard of this.

Sorry, I feel kind of stupid now but I'm really not sure what is going on.
