wish42 - April 20

Hi Everyone! I am new to this awesome site & really want some advice. I know it would be easier to just go & take the test, but seeing neg again is so uugh!!! My period is not due for a few days, but I had two days of what seemed like a period & then NOTHING! It started out brown, but then went to red & then completely gone. Very strange for me. I have a weird sensation of nausea in my mouth sometimes & sometimes cannot stand the smells of certain foods. But other than that I have no signs. Has anyone had anything like that? We bd when I was O but I just don't know!! Thanks for any help.

Sounds like implantation spotting and a couple of good signs. Why don't you keep your fingers crossed and wait to test first pee Sat 29th? Watch for unusual fatigue, dizzy, emotions, gut and b___b changes, peeing, lotion discharge and some others. Good luck!

Yep sure sounds like IB ...You can try testing with a more sensitive brand. Good Luck

Thanks so much for the info. I haven't used any test yet because my AF would not have actually been due for 2 more days. This evening though (not to be gross) after I used the bathroom there was a light pink mucus on my tp. What was that? Never had that before. Love to know your thoughts.

Wish, there are tests that are sold in pharmacies that detect as early as 4 days prior to your period. I tested 3 days prior and got my + .

I tested 6 days before, negative. 4 days before, negative, 2 days before..POSITIVE!! SO, it just depends on the levels of hormones in your body and the test. I always use First Response, but usually because you can get 3 tests in a box! I say go out and get one. Good luck!

Thanks girls! Has anyone had the light pink on their tp? Really want to know.

Well I couldn't take it anymore. I took the test & it was a BFN!! I really feel like I am preg though. G Viv said I should wait till the 29th. Why so late? I actually feel a bizarre almost burning feeling. What is that? Maybe I have an infection. Uugh! I have mild cramps pretty low as well. Any clues anyone?


Lin - April 22

Sorry to hear about your bfn! He probably said the 29th, because that would be a week after your period was due. The chances of getting a false negative that late are pretty slim. At any rate, if you had two days of substantial flow, whatever the color, it was probably your period. Pardon me if I keep repeating myself on this forum, but I've had two periods in recent months that were less than 1 day long and very light, and mine are usually 5 days. Sometimes odd periods happen.

I sunds we're experiencing the same syptoms wish42. I woke up this morning to light spotting which was red and not light pink, but my cramps are very sharp. I am also very sensitive to smells, my cycle should've been here 5 days ago, I haven't tested yet though, My b___st were sore a few days ago but not anymore, My appet_te has picked up lately, I scared to test because I get neg all the time, What do u think?


wish42 - April 23

Nikkir, I truly understand your hesitation. If you're already overdue then I would test soon. Maybe wait & see if the bleeding is heavier tomorrow in case it is your AF. Uugh!! No reason to set yourself up for unnecessary disappointment. How about the burning feeling that I was talking about? Does anyone know what that is? That might not even be the right word to use.


Lin - April 23

A burning feeling would very likely be indicative of an infection.


wish42 - April 23

Thanks Lin. That's what I was afraid of. I, thank goodness, have never had anything like this previously.


NikkiR - April 23

Yes I think if you're having a burning feeling then it maybe an infection. I don't have that but the bleeding is still light. Im about to call it a day. I'll probably test tomorrow. The cramping is what Im more concerned about though, The cramps haven't let up at all today and when I lay down they seem to get worse. Does anyone think this could just be my cycle coming on?


Lin - April 23

If you're having any kind of a substantial flow (more than just spotting or pink when you wipe), then it sounds like it's your period starting. At least, that's what I gather from a single post.

Pregnancy hormones cause chemistry changes down below which may allow previously unnoticed flora to proliferate (yeast, UTI).


jeanette - April 24

Just wanted to pipe up and let you know with my last pregnancy I had a bad burning almost rash like stinging feeling on my v____a and btw my thighs that lasted no more than a day, then went away. Thought I had poured perfume on myself, thats how the stinging felt. After I found out I was pregnant, I wondered if it was just a symptom and asked the Doc. She said basically the same thing Grandpa Viv said about chemistry changes, and an over abundance of yeast. Never turned into a full b__wn yeast infection though, just went away. Well, lets hope its the case for you!! God bless and babydust, wish!!
