Hi, 1 week ago I had severe cramps, back ache, bloating and gassy, then stopped 2 days before period due. My period was due yesterday and today should be full flow, but since yesterday had light brown spotting only when I wipe after urinating, today the same, since yesterday my br___ts are so tender and theres a strange streching feeling below my neck that aches and tingles????? Still bloaty and gassy and have lower tummy cramps. Why am I getting this light brown stuff/spotting ? Could I be pregnant? And how long do I wait before I consider worth taking a test? Any advise and experiences are more than welcome as I am trying for he 1st time so I havent got a clue what is happening to my body, it just doesnt feel like my normal self!!!!!

hello Ta, I jsut pa__sed through the same feelings this month only that i was a week late before the spotting started. it lasted for three days. i wanted an answer so i tested but with a negative result. Than period came full flow. I took it that my body is adjusting to ttc... hopefully preparing to conceive this cycle. you can always test in the morning if there is no strong flow, for peace of mind. it is very hard to feel your body change without a concrete result. how long have you been ttc?

HI Ive been trying for 3months now, I know its not long, but I had the some of the same symtpoms the first month we started trying and I had spotting for about 1 day and then full flow. This time though I have extremely tender b___sts with a strange streching feeling coming down from my neck, its sometimes quite painful, last night I had such bad gas I had to check if I was bleedig cause the pain was unbelievable, and I have sudden cramps. Im too scared to test, I just cant put myself through it, I would rather wait for my period, seeing a negative result always makes be feel like I failed an exam!!!!!!!!! do you know what I mean? I cant understand why would my body be going through so much pain for no reason????? Why cant I either have my normal periods mthat Ive had all my life or just not? Have you had children before, what other changes have you noticed while you were trying? Did you go to hell and back during those 3 days of spotting ...to end with full on P.?

i was sure i was preggo the month before. my body changed so much that even my husband noticed the bigger b___sts, thighter stomach , bigger and darker nipples and so on. iit was a great dellusion when my period only came a few days late. much heavier than usual and extremely painful. so last manth i tried to ignore any possible symptoms and put it in my head that after the previous ordeal my body would take a break. THan when there was no period i was more worried that something was wrong rather than being pregnant. I tested just in case but my abdomen was feeling too empty so i had no hopes. this month i'm trying to stay stress free and eat healthier maybe it will help. I have been ttc 4 months now and every month has been rather special. maybe the coming month will be the one for news not just feeling sympthoms. that would be great. baby dust to us both

Hey...you sound a lot more optimistic than me, I wish I could be like you. How do you stay stress free? And dont you want to start monitoring your body like most people do in order to increase their chances or are you leaving it to fate?

I think there is a pretty good chance you could be pregnant!! I would probably wait another week and if you are still feeling the same go and see your doctor or take a preg test. It just may be that you are only in the first couple of weeks...Good luck

i only monitor my cm but do not even chart. my period is regular to the minute so i only do a rough calculation for ovulation date.The more you know the more it becomes a duty to bed at the right time. i was going to buy a thermoeter to chart my basal themp but now i changed my mind. i want to stay ha__sle free and simply let pa__s all that could stress me. when i had all preg. symptoms i had a very bad day and got really worked up at some injustice from my boss at work. that evening things started to go bad and painful. i heard that a strong dose of adrenaline could kill a fetus. My intention is to let the world crumble and not get excited about it. Most things we worry about are things we can't do anything for. i just do my job, duties enjoy s_x and fantasise happy baby thoughts for an unknown but sure future. If anything seems to be very abnormal i'll go to my doc. All this makes me feel lucky and safe from mishaps. not many people can understand me but it works for now.

Moo has some wonderful words of wisdom I think this is the best advice that anyone can be told.

 

Ta - July 13

Your right, I want to think like that too I mean isnt that how it used to be in the old days before we had all thisinformation. I think thats what making me go crazy, Im reading too much and I expect to get exactly what I read. Most of my friends have become successfully pregnant within 1 or 2 months and that just seems normal to be. I guess Im different and I havent come to terms with that yet. I think I should try and take your advise! SUCCESS to us all!

That's the spirit. Believe me I nearly sent myself nuts trying to concieve with my husband for almost two years. I couldn't work out why it was'nt happening we already had 3 children, the youngest being seven. I think the more you think the harder things become. Relax, have fun and when it happens know one will be more happier than you. I wish all the luck in the world!

i forgot to tell you i'm on holiday... that helps a lot to keep up my good mood. Had a construction project going on in my home and finally i'm seeing some results. my dh's sister has been ttc for a year and already seems to have given up refusing to talk about it. i'm making a big effort not to end up like that. i work with little children and wouldn't bear looking at their sweet faces if i gave up on having my own child. At times i really hate it when my hormones play tricks on my mood. i realise it's happening when i notice my dh waiting patiently for me to get back to normal. i cried when i saw af after having believed to be preggo. that is not healthy at all is it. i don't want to create phanthom pregnancies that would be terrible. besides now that i have some off days i'll be taking care of myself much better. so.... we're going to be pregnant by the end of summer. With all the baby dust being scattered along these threads ours is bound to catch some.

I find it so strange that there are people like you going through the same ordeal and emotions as I am, it seems that I dont have to describe feelings cause I know youre going through same thing. This seems to be all about a waiting game..right now I can tell my hubby is holdinghis breath, hes playingit down in case its negative. I think I will take it quite bad this time simply because of all the symptoms I been having, some very painful!!!! I thought we were supposed to understand and learn more about our bodies when we start ttc, but I just think its confusing me even more. I think the holiday will do you good, you hear about som many people getting pg on holiday I guess cause your at your most relaxed state. I wish you all the best, and for the record Im more relaxed today since getting some of your positive vibes!!!! A question though, should I be making a mental note of all my symptoms that I go through each month?

I would like to know i had all this then i started so i guess iam not pregnant !

good morning. (it is for morning for me). i'm keeping a special diaryjust for these symptoms. Its a way to vent out certain thoughts too. My dh likes to avoid putting his hopes up so that would be difficult for him if i all the time we're together i blab about how my body is reacting. Initially i had started to write cause i wanted to have a pregnancy diary which started from conception. I had some false starts. So now i just write in it when i think I'm feeling things and mark the day of my cycle. that way i'm charting without a graph and if it turns out well i'll get something to pa__s on to my child when she/he will be trying for his/her own child. I know it's far fetched but i was never close to my mum and i really miss knowing things about her pregnancies now.

 

moo - July 14

Hello sheena. Guess you can wait like the rest of us. I'm still bleeding slightly from my last late period, so now i'm in the having s_x time zone. Sounds fun. I'm praying that we'll have contagious positive results. Ta... is your period still pending? I hate it when it makes you wait. you never know what to wish for. If there is a little creature growing inside than its ok...but if there is nobody than i want a fresh new cycle to start over.

 

Ta - July 14

Hey, yes its a new day for me, and still light dark spotting????? Im so confused, but I keep thinking about whatyou said and Im calming myself down. I guess, I just have to WAIT!!!! My cramping comes and goes, and I keep doing that pusing thing that I do sometimes whenI have my period and I can feel that a huge amount of blood is about to come out so I just push it out....do you girls know what I mean by that!!!??? And I cant push anything out, its definitly only when I urinate that I get it on my tissue and Im not getting enough in a whole day to fill a towel.....I tey to keep the same towel on as long as I can to judge the amount Im getting, and so far, I change only in the morning and night, even though its hard cause its horrible not changing towels cause I start to get a little itchy...sorry for the details....so lets see, I think its going to either be a strange period this month or who knows it could be my last!!! Im staying calm about it cause Iwould hate myself if Im starting to induce fake symptoms! What do you guys think? Im also worried that if this doesnt go on to devloping into my normal period, one would a__sume it could be spotting or whatever...so lets do a pg test, now if its negative, then whats happened to my period? To me thats more scary than getting my period? Moo, Im glad your reaching that stage where you can start trying again, its always a relief for me actually, I start to feel confident oonce again and optimistic, so honey, just hump like rabbits and enjoy it! But I do think its worth focusing on your ovulation time (Im gona start doing that to increase chances). Hey sheen, so how long you been trying ttc?
