Hey! I'm a week late. (Although I realize I may have o'ed late) I tracked loosely using the Babycenter Ovulation Calendar, and had a little spotting about 5 days later, which I hoped was implantation bleeding.
I was due last Tuesday for AF, and on Thursday evening I took a test: negative. Since then, not even a little sign of AF coming.
Last night, after my DH & I "had relations" I had some pink spotting, which I thought was AF coming, so I used a tampon for the night. (Sorry, this is way TMI!) But when I took the tampon out this morning, there was nothing on it. And nothing so far today... I don't know what to think! No cramps, no moodiness...
I went off BC last month, and I have been having pregnancy symptoms for a week now... like - carrying-saltines-everywhere symptoms. Today is the first day my period may arrive, Sunday-Tuesday... I can't remember exactly. But I don't have my PMS signs like normal - no headache, no irrationality... If nothing happens, I'll buy a test Tuesday and take it Wednesday morning. I'm nervous because I just don't know what the answer will be! And I haven't told anyone, so I cant say this anywhere else... but I needed to get it out. I kind of hope for a BFP.View Thread
You might try peeing in a small cup if you feel like you wont have enough. There are directions in the box with the test for that, but I believe you pee in the cup, then hold the test in the cup for about 20 seconds.View Thread
I stopped taking BC about 4 weeks ago because I was experiencing pretty much every bad side effect there was... Anyway, everything seemed normal & better until last week when I had some weird cramping, and then started last night I am just nauseous all the time. It's another week before I expect my period, so if I was preggers, this would be way to early to be experiencing morning sickness, right?View Thread
It's a long story, and I have a good reason for posting instead of calling my doctor - I recently moved to Spain and my Spanish is not good enough yet to call anyone here.
First of all, I am/was on birth control. It's called Donabel, and it's like ortho-tri-cyclen.
I had to get my wisdom tooth (yes, I only had one) out so I started antibiotics last Wednesday (this was at the end of my second week of pills). I think my husband and I might have "had relations" once before we remembered that bc and antibiotics don't mix. Anyway, Friday I had my tooth out and started bleeding. I had a very, very light and short period (about 4 days long, with very little bleeding) starting on Friday right after my surgery.
But I have been feeling symptoms like pregnancy symptoms all week. Super tired, really emotional, over-sensitive breasts, constipation, cravings, heartburn, discharge...
My husband has gone downtown to see if he can find an open pharmacy to buy a test, but I wanted to see if anyone here had advice or wisdom for me.
