I started my period on march 1st, and it ended march 4th (normal) and then on the 7th i had some spotting but nothing major, then on the 12th i had more spotting which lasted until the 16th, my dh and i had intercourse on the 7th and then the 20th, 21st, and the 23rd. Since the 23rd i have had dull cramping, dull lower back ache (like my af is here) headaches, hot flashes started yesterday and the night before last i was hot and couldn't sleep with blankets (too hot) then i would get cold, i was really moody on saturday and sunday and was so tired (tried to stay in bed)...i went to the doctors yesterday for my pap and i spoke to him about all of this and he said that it sounds like i am pregnant but would wait until the 8th to take a test. i asked him what should i go from the 1st or from the 12th and he said at this point he wasn't sure and that we should wait until the 8th (going from the 12th) and if i test positive then we will do a sono to see the gest. age of the baby. i lost my last baby at 7 weeks and i am really scared...and now confused. what do you all think?

I think you need to relax and just wait. No point in stressing , it will only make the wait longer and more painful ...I know it's easier said than done but what choice do you have at this point?.....Good Luck

thank you. yes i am kinda stressed and everything is just moving way to slow for me...crazy huh?

 

Emma2 - March 28

Not crazy....when you want something so bad it consumes you....Keep yourself busy get your mind off it.

emma do you know how cm works..sorry what imean is saturday i had white lotiony, then sunday and yesterday it was kinda sticky and now nothing i am dry....

 

Emma2 - March 28

It all depends on when in your cycle...When is your period due?

 

LisaD - March 28

well that is the thing..the doctor isn't sure....if we go from the start of my normal period which was the 1st then it would be due today, but i had spotting for several days starting on the 12th so we aren't sure

 

Emma2 - March 28

Yeah exactly....But if your period was due today techincally then lotiony CM or thick CM is pretty common in some women. But youre all confused about your cycle so we just better off waiting to see if AF shows soon or a BFP...

thank you very much emma....the wait is killing me and my dh.

 

Emma2 - March 28

Yeah tell me about it...its really stressing and nerve wracking but what can we do ...we need to let our bodies do what theyre suppose to do!!!

It actually sounds to me like you probably missed ovulation and are not pregnant. If you've got a 28-day cycle, then you probably ovulated between the 12th and the 18th. The cramping from the 12th-16th supports that, so does the spotting (which is relatively common during ovulation). Your cm sounds like typical post-ovulation cm. Sorry to say it, but if you didn't bd anytime between the 7th and the 20th, then it's doubtful that you're pregnant.

 

LisaD - March 28

we did on the 7th and the 20/21. thank you for the info Lin

 

Emma2 - March 28

Lin is sayin the best time would have been between the actual dates you had intercourse....

 

LisaD - March 28

ah got ya

oh and from what the doc said ...he asked me if i normally had spotting during ovulation before (or mid cycle) and the answer is/was no so he didnt' feel that it was. I hope he knows what he is talking about as he is a reproduction specialist and i hate not knowing what is up.

Stupid man. Spotting during ovulation is something that can happen out of the blue without ever happening before, as several women have reported on this forum, as are many behaviors of the female body. I honestly have given up on male gynecologists. I just think they have a much harder time understanding the female body. Most of what they know comes from a textbook.

lol. i went to this doctor after my last doctor told me i was pregnant (on the pill) because my cervix was purple...the doc i see now told me that you do not tell pregnancy by the color of the cervix that is a myth and he gave me an internal sono to find that i had a cyst on my overy.
