Spotting And Other Symptoms

Whisper - January 21

Hi there ladies! I have been a very long time lurker here, and find you all to be a very knowledgeable group, and I'm hoping I can get a bit of input. First, a bit of background. I have been trying to conceive for around 5 months now (this time). I have tried in the past, but always unsuccessful, most likely due to highly irregular cycles. My cycles seem to have evened out now, at about 32-35 days after making some health changes. For the last year, they have been quite regular, only having missed one period 8 months back, due to a bit of stress I think. I should have ovulated right around 2 weeks ago, noted by mild ovary pain and the onset of PMS symptoms as usual. I was actively having intercourse the week before and the week following on an every other day schedule. I haven't taken a test yet, because I'm afraid I'd just be disappointed again, lol, but I am going to in the next few days if no AF. I have had some signs that I think might be promising, but I wanted to get some input on it. My bbs are way more tender and sensitive than usual during PMS. I have also been extremely fatigued and sleeping longer during the nights, and still feeling tired all day over the last few days especially. Then today, I went to the bathroom and noticed when I wiped a very very faint brown tinted discharge, like it has a very small amount of brown blood in it. This isn't typical of AF, because I always get pink blood first day, then the heavy blood for a few days, with some brown blood the last 2 days. Never have I had brown blood before AF comes, so its unusual for me. I have also been feeling some mild crampiness, similar to PMS cramps, and a slight feeling of pressure, hard to describe. I've been telling myself everything is just PMS so not to get my hopes up, but the spotting has me thinking somethings up. I guess my question is, would this type of spotting be normal or expected in early pregnancy, or might there be something else going on to cause this and the other symptoms? I appreciate any input! Thanks much!

I also had a nosebleed yesterday, which was totally bizarre. I haven't had a nosebleed since I was a child (was anemic till age 6, but have been fine since). Could this be related to any of this as well?

Your symptoms sound promising and I heard that a nosebleed can be a symptom because of the extra blood you body is producing. I had a very dry nose for 2 weeks after my bfp! Keep me posted and GL. When are you going to test?

Hmm I will probably test by the 25th if no AF. I don't want to get ahead of myself. Id rather see AF show up than take a test and it be negative. Maybe its silly, but I cry everytime I see just a single line :( so I'm a bit fearful of that after so many in the past.

Well the 25th is Thursday.. so I will be thinking of you. I know how you feel about the bfn. I was so shocked when I saw the bfp I did not believe it and did not tell anyone for three days until I got a darker one. My first bfp was on dec 29 but I tested again on the 1st and that is when I told people. You are just pa__sed your usual cycle length so AF should have shown her face. My LMP was dec 10th so we would be due right around the same time. GL I am so excited for you because I think you might be pg when I look at your dates!!

Well I took a nap after my last post and napped for a few hours... when I woke up I checked again and didn't see the spotting anymore so either it stopped or just gapped for now. But it was really really light spotting when I did notice it, just enough to be able to notice the coloration. Starting to get my hopes up now.. Gosh, I really hope this works out the way I'd like!
