Hi Ladies, my question is simple- even when you had your period did you still get any symptoms or did you just happen to feel different and went to the doctor to see about it. Because I had a seemingly normal period last month even though before it came I was cramping, nauseous (and throwing up), lots of gas, constipated one some days and diarrhea on others, lots of burping, and headaches. I took a pregnancy test and it was -. I wasn't convinced. After period I still feel the same, actually worse. I have all the above signs and more. I get so hungry that I can eat a horse even after eating a full meal and that is not normal and I have this white, creamy discharge since my last period that hasn't went away even though my period is about to start. I AM SO CONFUSED!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!! (Sorry so long :-) )

I hope someone answers you cause i feel the same!! i had a lighter period than usual, feel like c___p, but have a - test today. I am supposedly on day 10 of my cycle, but i dont feel O coming at all.

What other symptoms are you having? Most of the responses I have heard on here when woman had their period they say it was lighter than normal so maybe your hormone levels are still low that it isn't detected by the test yet. I am going to schedule a blood test to figure out once and for all what is going on. Have you thought about that?

I know how you feel morgan I have been the same way. Even though I keep getting a BFN on hpt. The dr.'s office just refuses to give me a blood test despite what all I told them. They themselves keep running a urine test. Which keeps giving a BFN. Which is driving me nuts.

Hi ladies, so glad I could find this forum to share. I had s_x during fertile days in July. 'Knew' I was pregnant. Felt nauseous and tired, but above all else, 'felt' pregnant. Had two HPT tests done, both negative. AF came, quite heavy, bit late. Soon as it stopped, symptoms came back. Went to doctor who said I prob had very early m/c. Gave me bowel relaxants, told me not to worry and come in a month if still felt the same for u/s. Am now on day 11 of new cycle, feel all sorts going on in lower abdomen, nausea is back... Could be ovulating, I guess. But still think I may be pregant. If I miscarried, surely symptoms would be gone? Anyone want to share?

Hi ladies, I'm not sure what is going on with me. I had an eptopic pregnancy and major surgery in May. I was told that af would take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to appear. She did - on June 10th very normal - 3-4 days heavy then spot for 2 days. July 10th same thing; very normal - OPK and on July 25th got what I thought was a positive sign - both lines on the test were the same color - perfect match - so naturally me and hubby got so excited and bd. August 10th - light bleed; August 11th full b__wn; could never make it without a pad; August 12th it was gone; August 13th spotting August 14th gone. Nausea; headaches, ga__sy, cramping since August 1st. August 16th felt like I wet myself - went to ladies room and had blood - wiped it away and that was it. Took HPT the afternoon of the 16th BFN. Dr. says hormones could be off due to surgery but I want to know why now - June and July were normal. Anyway, August 17th clump of gooey discharge when I wiped - then gone. I'm exhausted and in bed and asleep by 9:30 which isn't like me. I continue to feel crampy, tired, ga__sy, etc... not much of an appet_te; constipated and then diarrhea. I don't know what to do at this point.

I know how you all feel- frustrated and tired of all these dead ends!!! Everyone keeps coming up to me and asking me "are you pregnant?" All of these symptoms are driving me up a wall and my doctors' office is part of the cause of this frustration cause they won't give me a blood test either, since I've had so many neg. urine results. I really don't know where to go from here. If our doctors would listen to us with their hearts and with a little bit of common sense to know that this is not "normal", we could possibly come up with a conclusion -pregnancy or not.

Morgan, are you late with af or did you have it? When should your next af arrive? On top of my symptoms I was describing earlier - I just went to the bathroom and have watery, milky cm. I couldn't even begin to think of what else could be causing these signs. I would continue to push the issue with your doctor - especially if you have health insurance. I know I'm going to test tomorrow morning and if it still negative then I'm demanding a blood test - I have insurance so they shouldn't deny me. If the doctor still refuses to do a blood test for you go to a clinic near you. Good luck and I'm hoping it's a freaky thing for us and we are all pregnant and it just hasn't been confirmed yet. Baby dust!!!!!

i had brown spotting on and off for 3 days when my 2nd period was due but no blood. and no blood since

 

Jenn - August 19

R - sounds like implantation bleading. Did you need a pad or tampon - or did you notice it more when you wiped? I would test again and see what happens. When I was pregnant in April I had the brown spotting but it only appeared on the TP and not on my underwear. Good luck!

My af from last month was about 4 days late and it wasn't exactly normal. With my "normal" periods I could tell you exactly what happens on each day, but this one was a little lighter (not a lot), and they normally last for 7 days with some brown spotting afterwards for a few days but this one was about 5-6 days and no spotting. My next one according to my calculations should be due on Tues. but guess what it came today!!!!! It's not heavy but that can change within a day. Some people say that watery cm is a sign that af is coming but i didn't have that all week and mine's came today so maybe, just maybe it is a sign of pregnancy. I also have health insurance and he (doctor) still wouldn't perform the blood test. I don't understand what the big deal is. I know they believe in all this scientific stuff but they should know that tests make mistakes too. r- have you took a preg. test, urine or blood?

Well everyone my period did come on Friday (unexpectedly), as I stated before but it is not as heavy as it usually is and I all the 10 years I have had a period it has always been extremely heavy for about 5 days and light the last two days. I so confused. At this rate my period will probably be over with in a day or two. HELP!!

 

to morgan: - August 22

hv u tried testing on HPT after your so-called AF came on Fri? How abt testing on OPK? All the pg symptons u stated are what I'm experiencing right now!!!! I had mild brownish spotting on 10 Aug, stopped for a while on 11th and then ended with pinkish discharge on 12th (sorry for the gross details!). The subsequent 7 days, I had similar lotion-like white v____al discharge and then the EWCM came two days ago! So I thought I might be ovulating and tested on the OPK. The test line popped up instantly and it was significantly darker than the reference line. Without taking any chances, my hubby and I went on to bd as usual...On certain websites, I read that one can use OPK to test for certain hormones present in a pg body. I've not tested on HPT yet becos I wanna wait till I miss my next period.

Morgan, how far along would you be now? I'm having a similar situation. I have several pregnancy symptoms, including weight gain, veins everywhere, increased cm, increased appet_te, swollen abdomen, etc. My periods normally last 7 days with an additional day or two of spotting, with the 1st two days being so heavy that I go through 22 overnight pads. But since Mar., my periods have been about 2-3 days long, with an additional 2 days of spotting, and I don't even use 22 overnight pads the entire period! I've gone to 2 different obgyns (the last in June), both of whom would only do a urine test and an exam. Both said I wasn't pregnant, but couldn't explain the sudden change in periods (which have been the same since I started having them). If I was pregnant, I would be at about 6 or 7 months now. Most recently, I've begun leaking a dark yellow fluid out of one of my b___sts (I know it's not a b___st problem, since I do self exams and both obgyns examed them as well) which according to everything I've read is colostrum (which is only supposed to appear when pregnant). Anybody else experience this?!
