Thought For Sure I Was Pregnant Now What

Hi, okay I know this probably sounds strange, but here's what's going on...I had s_x on the 22nd of September (I think that was my fertile time) and other times before that as well. The day after that my br___ts became swollen and tender. They gradually got worse every day and I usually don't have problems with my br___ts (at least not like that) before my period. I also experienced va___al dryness, fatigue, cramping and cold like symptoms. Then about a few days before my period came (at least I think it was a period) my cramping and br___t soreness and tenderness calmed down and I almost felt like normal only I still felt like af was coming. My first day of my last Normal period was Sept. 6. My periods are usually 34-40 days apart. I thought my period came on Oct. 5 and thought for sure that I wasn't pregnant. Only I am starting to question whether or not it was a period because it came about 5 days before I expected it and I don't remember it ever coming early. It usually will come late before it comes early. It was also very much lighter than normal, but I still had to wear a small pad. It lasted about 1 and a half days and went away for a day, and came back for a few hours the next day and I just had to wear a panty liner. So it's completly gone now. I still am very tired, have a runny nose and feel stuffy, and I feel these mild sharp like sensations in my br___ts, but they are not swollen or achy anymore. I took a hpt a few days ago, but it was negative. Before I had what I think could have been a period, I thought for sure I was pregnant. Now I don't know what to think. What do you ladies think? Anyone else experienced this?

Oh, forgot to add that when my strange period came, I had really bad cramps the first day like I do when I have a normal period so I don't know if it was implantation bleeding because I cramped like a normal period.

Same thing happened to me...but I'm not sure if I'm pregnant...so I can't help you out much. My last mp was Sept. 6th also.I had a "period" on the 4, the 5th it was much light, the 6th it was gone, the 7th I spotted a little bit more...then done. That is not normal for me. It was very painful that first day, just like you're talking about. I have done 7hpt's and 1 blood test....all negative...except for one hpt which turned a slight positive after 20 minutes...which is not really a positive...or that's what I hear. I really don't have any cla__sic symptoms (nausea, b___st tenderness)...so I'm starting to think I'm not pregnant. But I have been having terrible bloating and belching...which I've looked up on line and read about many pregnant women that experience that same thing. Another symptom I'm not too sure about is the veins. I do notice veins on my b___st/chest and abdomen. The ones on my abdomen I've never seen before...but then again, I've never looked. The veins going through on my left side (where I've been feeling strange feelings) are much thicker veins than the ones on my right. Not sure if that's how everyone is though. Maybe they're thicker because they're on the left side (heart side). I Don't know. I'm just making my self crazy at this point. But anyway, our periods seem VERY similar. I had a neg. blood test...which I've heard are very reliable...but have you read that woman's post about having 8 positive pg tests and two neg. blood tests! That leaves me with some hope. Please let me know how you're doing.

Ladies, I am starting to cramp a little bit today and am getting a few small, thick, sticky chunks of clear mucus from my v____a. Does this sound like I could be pregnant because if it doesn't tell me because I don't want to be disappointed again. I just don't understand how I could be pregnant if my b___st soreness and tenderness went away. I do have some white bumps around my nipples though that showed up 2 weeks ago. To me it just isn't making sense. Is there still hope that I am pregnant?

FYI, the sore b___bs are your progesterone levels high. usually the diminished symptoms right before your period means your progesterone levels are dropping. if you are pregnant your progesterone levels should remain high and the b___st should remain sore. if you test neg a week after your bleeding, i would condider yourself back to the drawing board! :-(

Well i have had the same symtoms as you... but i had s_x on the 28th and my last period was on the 17th, so i should have ovulated around the 1st... well i have been having bad cramps and bloating sense the 6th. Well sense the 9th my b___st have been tender and my back has been hurting. I thought for sure i was pregnant. I took a HPT yesterday and today, both said negative... im still questioning it tho! Im confused!!

 

Hannah - October 11

But then why did my "period" come early and not last long and why am I cramping today? I tested 3 days after my bleeding and it came out negative not a week after.

 

T - October 11

Hannah, if you are indeed pregnant and you did bleed, you may be testing too early to get a positive, that is why we all say wait a week. That should give your body enough time to produce high enought levels to get a positive. I have had my period come early and not last long too and ended up just going crazy thinking i WAS pregnant. sometimes our periods just do that, with no real explanation. If you get a + then you know exactly what was going on. But in your case you are just going to have to hang in there and be patient!!! To Heather, sounds like you are testing way too early!!! The best results come a few days after your missed period!!!!

 

Heather - October 11

To T... thanks.. i was thinking the same thing.. but im jus so... well i dont know... im jus wanting to know already. I guess i need to stop worrying and wait for my period to come around. Thanks! <3

Heather, keep us posted on this post!! Would love to hear if you are!!! Your signs sound promising!!!!!!!

 

Heather - October 11

I will T! Im hoping i am.. have been trying for the past few months!! Wish me luck! :-) But i have a question maybe you could help! Is the cramping and bloating normal?? and i forgot to say i have been having REALLY white discharge for the past few days.. is that normal to?! This would be my first child.. so im kinda... clueless on what to exspect!

 

Heather - October 11

Whats BFP? -lol-

 

T - October 11

Heather, what is your cramping like?. I had those little sharp, quick, string like cramps a few days before i got a +. How is your bloating different than normal AF bloating?? Bloating can be anything from gas to pending AF or pregnancy. And the discharge is a good sign but I have had really creamy white discharge for the past few weeks all the way up to AF. I think i am just more aware of it now that i look for it.

 

T - October 11

Big Fat Positive!!!!

 

Heather - October 11

Well my cramps are just like im on my period... thats just what it feels like.. but to me.. it feels worste than my period at times. Other times, its jus a sharp pain then goes away. The bloated.. yeah sometimes i think its gas.. but i dont know. Whats A/F?!

 

T - October 11

lol!!! AF is short for aunt flow. There are alot of abbreviations around here. BFN is big fat negative. When is your period due?? You will have to take a test that morn and let me know. Let me know if your b___bs stay tender too!! I remember the difference with my b___bs, where the nipples really killed when i pushed on top and they fellt "heavy"
