Hey everyone! My husband and I are on our second month ttc. I have a few questions because my cycles have been wacky and irregular. Background: For the last 2 months I have been having 38 day cycles. Last month I thought i was having implantation spotting but I started pink scanty spotting on august 25th (Saturday) and it lasted till I go a heavy AF on the 29th (Wed.) till that Saturday. First question is when did my cycle actually start, on the first day of the spotting or the full flow? Now starting at the beginning of this week (sept 16) my breast have been sore and as of tuesday I have had mild cramping (more like pressure in my pelvis) and backaches till yesterday (Thurs., sept 20th) I only have backaches and I had a little pink discharge in my underwear. I am hoping it was implantation, so if it was when can I take a HPT? I am so confused because I thought I was supposed to ovulate this week but if I was wrong about the cycle day 1 then it could have been last week when i ovulated. So I don't really know when my next period or missed period would be! Thanks!!View Thread
I got a positive OPK on the 13th so I am saying that I ovulated on the 14th. On the 24th (10th dpo) I wiped after using the restroom and there was very light pinkish discharge, ever since then I have had off and on pinkish or brownish, scanty discharge. Took a HPT Sunday (Couldn't resist) but it was negative Yesterday the 27th my period was due. Today is the 28th and still getting scanty discharge (5th day of discharge now) It has not gotten any heavier though. Its really hard to tell if it is implantation or if I am getting my period.
Other things I have noticed. I have to pee all the time. would that start this early if i was pregnant. It feels like a UTI but without the burning. When I do go to the bathroom not much comes out. Have also felt a bloating pressure in my pelvic region. Also always tired! I may just be more in tune to these things because I so want to be pregnant.
What do you think could i be pregnant? If not why am I spotting so much?View Thread
This is my husbands and I first time TTC. I am 25, healthy and have not been on BC for 1 and a half years. For the most part I have 30-31 day cycles but last month my period was exactly a week late. (AF came july 23) I tested and was not pregnant. I was dealing with a lot of stress in july so i figure that is the reason for the lateness. Anyways i went and got some OPK's so I would know for sure when i go the LH surge for August. I started using the OPK on the 6th and finally go a high surge on the 13th(monday) and faint positive on the 14th. (we did the BD on the 10th(fri), 12th, 13th(when i got the positive) through the 16th(thursday).
My question is when can I get a positive from a HPT? I went and picked up clear blue digital HPT and was hoping to take it this sunday (26th) but i am afraid it will be too early?View Thread
