My husband and I (26yo) have been TTC for the past 4 months. Last month we tried every second day (and made sure we had s_x on my most fertile days) feeling hopeful, as we were much more relaxed, my period arrived a day late and is relatively normal (ie. spotting for 1 day, then very light pink discharge, then med flow of red). The diff. being that I dont have as many 'clots' this time. I will wait till AF stops and take a pregnancy test. But am a little dissapointed that I got my period.Is there still a possibilty I could be pregnant?

Hey, almost the same thing happened to me. I was wondering whether I was pregnant, actually that's why I logged on to this site today. I bought those cheap tests from the dollar store. I can't decide if I should test or not. Everything goes quite normal but I cannot accept the fact that I'm not pregnant. I have no signs but still... People say you can get your period when you're pregnant, so I can't figure. What dou you think? What are u gonna do?

Yas, today is my 3rd day of bleeding no cramps today. And the bleeding is mainly when you wipe (sorry tmi!). I have been told that I can test (using a hpt) when the bleeding stops - and thats what im going to do!! I am hoping tomorrow will be a good day to do it. If it comes out negative - I am still inclined to get a blood test. I know I am getting way ahead of myself but my period has not been exactly 'normal'. It could be wishing hard about being pregnant also...I dont know. Let me know how it goes and I will let you know after I've done my test!!

I am so upset and moody right now. I am receiving very light (rose colored blood) now. It should have been over today. It started last thursday. Maybe I'm wishing too hard. I've been having very light upset stomach. But i've had it before I've had my period too. Confused and angry.

yas are you cramping as well with the bleeding? Don't lose heart. Does you period usually go for this long? I have read lots of information on being pregnant and bleeding right up until the 3rd month of pregnancy - that is, regular periods. SO you never know. Let me be honest though - I too cant help but keep my hopes up. But I feel as though when the time comes to test I am going to be dissapointed again!!!! My advice is: RELAX. If your body wants your period to come let it be. And when it stops then cross that next bridge :)!!

Ok, question: If it's said that you can be pregnant and get your period, let's say for the first month, how do they know or suspect that they're pregnant. Because when u get your period, u'r supposed to let your hopes go, right? So why do they suspect, or how do they know they've been pregnant for a month, when they don't receive their period in their 2. month. You know? Well, since you've asked, I think I have a slight cramp, like the regular period cramp. And my periods usually last for a week, and I should be receiving the brown stuff and it should be ending now. But sometimes, when I think it's over, i receive some surprise bleeding like this. So, I don't wanna keep my hopes high. I am so glad we've met though. Thank you for the support. I'll keep you posted. I wish the best for all of us.

this is how 'they' found out. You see by the 3month mark your HCG levels (preg hormone) is obvoiusly high by then and so it stops your period AND also makes your preg tests show POSITIVE. Some women just dont produce the HCG hormone quickly enough and thats why they have neg urine AND blood test up to 3 months or sometimes 4 months and end up having healhty babies. If you want to email me feel free - im glad I have 'met' you too!! it is [email protected]
