Spotting Symtoms Help

Hey guys... My fiance and I had a somewhat unprotected moment a few weeks ago. Normally my period is clockwork, I'm 21 - and it's always been 30 days between cycles, 4-5 days in length. I started my last period on April 15th, and it's now may 17th... Initially my body felt normal..I felt the whole week before cranky, tender br___ts deal... I started gettig worried last night because I hadn't started, my nipples were looking larger, and I began to feel sick to my stomach - This morning I woke up and used to restroom, (this is a bit of info, but I just need to know if anyone else has had this) and a little bit of brownish mucus/fluid was on the toilet paper. I smiled, assuming I caught my period coming early before it turned red...however, I went to the restroom again a little while ago to find nothing whatsoever. I still feel slightly sick, my br___ts are still tender (which usually fades as my period would start, or days before) and in general feel very tired... I don't want to buy a HPT yet because I'm only 2 days late, but does this sound like a possible pregnancy or am I just missing something? -Ashley

I think your symptoms sound promising as long as you dont start bleeding more but take an hpt tomorrow morning when you first get up and then you will know for sure. Get an early hpt and it should be long enought you will get a correct answer on it. Good Luck!

Thanks, I appreciate the response. This certainly wasn't planned, and is very stressful to think this might be happening to us during such a rough time (we're just starting out together, and getting into the swing has been tough) but I have been reading the posts here, and seeing how hard it is for some women, so if I am, I will take it as a blessing, nothing less and nothing more.

ashleyd, my last af was 4/14 and af was due yesterday & I don't have a sign of it, only a "drip" feeling since last night. My af is like clockwork, too. I swear I have used the bathroom about 8-10 times since last night thiking af was "dripping" but not a drip of anything. Only ewcm inside of me that is lotiony and some women think that the "drip" and cm is a sign of pg. I see you did not plan to have a baby yet, but it is deflnetely a blessing, especially when you have someone w/ you. My daughter is almost 6, I can count on one hand how long her father did anything for her, he's incarcerated for 10 more yrs. It's hard but trust me, you'll make it, if necessary. It's not too early to test, but keep in mind it is possible not to detect if your hcg is high enough, I am an example. Good luck.

Yeah, staying together is something important to us both...him for religious reasons (and of course love..lol) and me fore dealing w/ a "no good" dad sort... kind of that "I will never be them" mentality. The dripping feeling I understand...I've been peeing every 45mins to hour and a half, which is another weird thing for me considering I have the kind of bladder that can wait a whole road trip...however I didnt think being pg messed with your bladder this early on, if I am...I keep feeling like my period is starting, that slight dripping feeling, and then nothing is there, almost feels like bubbles?

I know what you mean too. I can hold pee for a rad trip, too, at least I could before this week..lol. I really don't know if it can mess with the bladder this early, but frequent urination is a symptom. Not to say that it can't be something else or nothing at all, but just keep your eyes open. I don't think smart people "plan" to have no good dads, they just get caught up and don't know how to turn back b/c they believe "love" is there. Boy, did I learn. It is a price to pay when you decide to have unprotected s_x those and I wish I could tell every young girl/woman everywhere to BEWARE.... LOL.

Yeah, I know you can't always know if it's a good one or a bad one, my mom sure didn't know...lol. I'm fairly confident that this is a good one though, because he's less nervous than I am... of course he's all about children...he's the favorite cousin to all the littles in his family... Me on the other hand...little ones still scare me a bit, but if this is it - gunna have to get over that really quick :)

It could be IB that your experiencing. I would take a test since you seem to be late for AF...Good Luck!

wow...i feel like i have FINALLY met some who know exactly what I am going through. My last period was April 3...I am 2.5 weeks late but all my tests keep coming back negative. I have been regular like clockwork (every 28days)...I have had the brown discharge...and sometimes now I get a cm colored discharge when I wipe...so if that is to much info...i am afraid to take any more tests. I have a dr's appt on the 29th...hopefully!

 

ashleyd - May 17

Ya know, it's comforting, and scary all at the same time hearing this...comforting to know I'm not alone, but scary that I really could be pg..lol if anyone wants to just chat about anything or throw some advice, msn: [email protected] :)

starting to spot again, this time pinkish (it's been on and off all day now, but nothing enough for a tampon...) so we'll see if I start... did take a nice nap though...lol, feeling a ton better, still icky in the stomach though.
