I'm new and also NTNP with my DF
Hey everyone!

This is my first time ever on a message board. I have been reading a lot of boards due to my excessive Googling on EVERYTHING pregnancy related here lately. I thought I would post my story/questions/concerns because I am driving myself crazy wondering if I'm pregnant or not!

I have somewhat irregular periods, so I chart them. According to the webmd ovulation calculator, my cycle is 22 days long and my fertile days are May 31st - Jun 4th. My next period WAS expected to be Jun 16th; I have not started yet. We DTD on Jun 2nd. I have felt a little nauseous the past 3 of 4 mornings. Yesterday afternoon I started feeling crampy like I may start, and I have had a pink/brown discharge which I think could possibly be IB. On Jun 17th I took a HPT in the afternoon and got a BFN. Took another one the next morning and had another BFN. They were Walgreen's HPTs, I didn't buy the expensive ones. Today I'm still feeling crampy, but it's still the pink/brown stuff.

When should I wait to take another test?? I'm going crazy, and don't want to talk to my DF about it just yet because I feel it's too soon, I want to be sure first.

Phew, glad I got that off my chest lol!

Hi, I'm in the same boat as you. My cycle is longer, 35 days and due on today but nothing yet. Been feeling sick, boobs are sore and heavy, been really figety at work and I can usually go 6-8 hours without going to the toilet but am now going every hour to pee!

I'm not testing yet but think I might if I still haven't got AF by Friday. Fingers crossed for you. I think give it a day or two and then take another :)

Re: I'm new and also NTNP with my DF
Thank you for replying! I hope that AF doesn't come and ruin it! I'm 29 and have been with my DF for five years, engaged 1. We have a 4 year old daughter together, and he has 3 sons from a previous marriage. He has full custody of the boys, so we have 4 kids. But deep down I really want another baby! I guess if it's meant to be it'll happen.

Still spotty this evening, so if AF doesn't appear in the night (as she normally does!) I will be more hopeful as I never spot this long before my period. Good luck to you as well!

With this baby I had spotting for six days starting at 8 dpo. I took a test at 14 dpo, and it was so faint that my husband told me I wasn't pregnant and was seeing things. You may be testing too early.

Wow 4 kids must be a manic household! This would be my first so I'm really excited but trying not to overthink it. How are you feeling today??

Re: I'm new and also NTNP with my DF
Yes it is indeed! Well the boys are 15, and 13 year old twins so they do help out a lot.

I am feeling good today, but still spotting the brown/pink stuff. This is day 3 of that - definitely unusual for me. When AF arrives it's usually pretty heavy flow the first day. :tmi: Also my boobs are usually sore a couple of days before I start - no soreness right now, although I keep smooshing them to see if they're sore. Hope I don't get caught at work! lol

If I don't have AF by tomorrow I will take another test Saturday morning.

I don't mind the :tmi: lol! Wow I can't imagine parenting teen boys, I have 2 younger brothers and that's bad enough!

Well fingers crossed for Saturday.

Thanks!! Day 4 of minor spotting with no sign of AF. Just when I think she's here, I go to the restroom and Nope!

:roaring: This made me lose it! I am having some strange symptoms including very sore nips and slightly sore bb's, so I have been doing this too, to see if they're still sore. I'm glad I'm not the only person out there. Just the thought of getting caught is embarrassing. rofl.
