Hi! Last cycle I had a very short period. From what I can tell, usually I ovulate around CD14-17. I am on CD21 right now with NO indication that ovulation has occurred. My pre-O temps for the most part this cycle are slightly higher than what they normally are, but lower than my normal post-O temps. I have had creamy CM pretty much since right after my "period" ended, with 3 days of very minimal watery, followed by copious amounts of creamy....talking like, I have to wear a panty liner because I leak. Is it even POSSIBLE for me to be pregnant? I did use a test around CD8, it was negative, but I have also seen people on here who never got their positive until 12 weeks. I have not been noticeably more tired, or nauseous, though some days I do urinate more frequently for no apparent reason. The only other signs I have that I might be pregnant are that my nipples are darker, and I have had mild cramps off and on ever since CD26 of last cycle. Can cysts also cause these symptoms? If I still am not showing a clear ovulation pattern by next week I will go to my doctor with my charts and try to get this figured out. In the meantime, I was just wondering if anyone else could help with this situation. My chart is at FF /home/1711b8. thanks in advance for your reply.

Becky, I think you may hve O'ed early like on CD8. But I am just an ameateur at charts. home/resaboo Have you tested lately? Also have you thought about using OPK's?

Wow, I don't know what's going on with your chart... As much as I hate to admit it, I feel like i'm in your same boat this month! I had a period MUCh heavier then normal with lots of pain too... My SIL said that maybe it was twins and I just lost one??? (that happened to her early on and was confirmed by a Dr.) I just don't know though. I wish I could give ya an answer! I too have been peeing a lot more for no apparent reason... I've had metallic taste in my mouth a couple days and felt nauseas... I keep telling myself it's just becuase i've switched brands of vitamins and started taking the Vitex and Damiana so it is probably all side effects. I like and agree that your plan of waiting just a bit longer and then taking your chart to your OBGYN would be beneficial... Good luck sweetie!

Thanks Resaboo and Meg. I feel like my temperatures are too low for me to have O'ed at all, there is no distinct, sustained thermal shift. Money is tight right now - that's why we aren't actually "trying" this month, so I can't afford to splurge on OPKs. I wish I could!!! Thanks for the input Meg. at least it is a possibility....even if it is slim. I have not been taking anything this cycle, I guess I should resume taking my prenatal vitamins just in case! Today has been a weird day...after I got off here I went back to sleep, and I just could NOT wake up! I would wake up momentarily, fall back asleep, have a dream, wake up again, fall back asleep, dream again...at least 6 times over about 4 andf a half, 5 hours. My brain just felt like it was in such a fog...I finally made myself get up. Anyway...umm...I have not tested since about CD8 or so, I will request a test when I go into the doctor. I think I will go in on CD27 or 28 if I haven't O'ed, just to see if I get a period. Megs, have you tested? with me the peeing thing isn't every day, it is kinda random, and usually at night...I'll be chatting with my friends and go "wtf I have to pee AGAIN" lol.

Hey meg I have a question, how come your chart has squares instead of circles?

Becky it couldn't hurt to take another hpt, just to set your mind at ease. If you are pregnant, it would most likely show by now. If not, you could just be having an anovulatory cycle, it's not uncommon for perfectly healthy women to have one every once in a while. Good luck!

Thanks Sarah. I know there has been more than one person though who never got a positive HPT, but still wound up being pregnant. I wonder what causes that? I am just gonna wait and see what my body does, then Friday or the Monday after that go to the doc if things haven't normalized. Megs, did your SIL get positive HPTs??? Does anyone know if having cysts would cause the copious amounts of CM and dark nipples???

it looks like you're 6dpo - with an implantation dip today. you won't get a BFP for a few more days. looks like you may have missed the O window for bd. are you abstaining on purpose? you might need to bd more often to get DH into practice.

Hi Becky! I have been kind of just popping in and out of here lately, and I guess I caught your post at the right time. I am having a similar situation. I was always your poster child for 28 day cycles and ovulating on day 14. Suddenly, in Nov, I ovulated late - day 23, and had bd'd on that day....hubby and i were not ttc at that time and we used protection but my cycle has been wacky since then... i now have 37 day cycles with one day of spotting, and the ovulation pain comes consistently on day 23 (i'm not temping or charting so i can't verify whether i'm actually ovulating, but it feels like it)....however, I am also having preg symptoms to boot... my nipples are darker and man are they sensitive (3 mos now!!!) and the sides of my bbs get sore every once in awhile...when this first started, i was nauseous all the time, had heartburn, tons of cramping, headaches, and a bunch of negative hpts... i have one child already, and i can honestly say that i feel just how i felt when i was preggo - literally, exactly the same... but i am supposedly not preggo!!! I have had a million tests done and no one knows what is wrong, so after researching like crazy, i found that cysts/fibroids can cause preggo symptoms....but, i too, am confused by the b___b involvement... so i have an appt on Monday with the OBGYN to figure out what in the world is going on!!!................. additionally, i researched why some people cannot get a bfp even tho they are preggo and here is what i found .... preg tests should be testing for something called H-hCG, instead of hCG...it is very interesting! Here's good explanation bmb.uga.edu/icgr/program/abstracts/Khanlian.pdf ..... as always, remove any dashes that may appear.... i will let you know what happens at my appt!!! good luck to you! :o)

and sometimes our cycles just go wacky for whatever reason.... and it is just a pain to figure out what is going on... lol

 

BeckyBunny - January 20

Thanks time4more!! Definitely let me know what you find out! Are you going to have an u/s to see if there is anything in there? I will check out that web address after a while. I had some pains that could have been O pains earlier, I guess I will see what my temp does over the next few days...always have to wait, haha. iampg, no, we are not TTC this cycle for several reasons. I continue to take my temp every morning to keep track of my cycles - and with good reason, apparently!!!

 

BeckyBunny - January 20

Okay, I understand basically what that is trying to say, though the first part is a little hard to follow for someone with no medical training at all. by the way, do you have a chart at all???

 

time4more - January 20

lol, i agree! it is confusing, but you can get the gist of what they are saying... there are several similar things if you google H-hCG.... i don't have a chart unfortunately, although i have taken my temp nearly everyday (not BBT) and it has been much higher than it usually is.... prior to this I was always in the 97's... now I am in the high 98's to low 99's..... so odd... my family doc has tested me for everything from Lupus and thyroid issues to mold poisoning and can't find a thing wrong with me.......so I am now adding anxiety to my list of symptoms because it is very stressful to be ill and not know why.... funny thing is, if I was to be pregnant, it would explain everything - except the O pain!!! lol... i suppose if the obgyn doesn't find anything wrong either, i'll prob get a BBT and start a chart to see what is going on for myself.... I've never had a cyst/fibroid before tho, so I am not really sure the extent of the symptoms they cause...and I can't find much info on it on google...

 

BeckyBunny - January 20

with your 37 day cycles, what CD are you on now? and do you have like regular period bleeding or is it light/short?

 

time4more - January 20

today is CD 27... i have only been getting one day of light bleeding every 37 days.... prior to this it was 4 days of medium bleeding.... hmmm i wonder if endometriosis could do that?

 

BeckyBunny - January 21

Ok I had a little glob of EWCM today and my temperature went up....waiting....waiting...will see what the next couple of days bring.
