I took a hpt on Match 16th and it was a bfn. I started my period the next day. Throughout my period, it wasn't really all that heavy. There weren't a lot of clots like I usually have and it was a really dark red, with more of brown blood than red. My period ended yesterday but I'm still cramping. I've been excessively tired for the last 2 weeks. I've been having a lot of tummy troubles since Friday, 4 days now, and I've been super gassy. I've also had headaches and keep getting lightheaded. My breasts have remained farily normal. I woke up 3 days ago with a really sore lower abdomin like I'd been doing crunches all night and my back was hurting. Mind you, I was on the second to last day of my period but I've never had lower abdomin soreness. Even right now I'm having some soreness and I keep getting vaginal cramps every once in a while and cramps on my right side of my lower belly. I also think my hands might be a little swollen. I keep getting hot and I have had this god awful metallic taste in my mouth for the last 3 days as well. I had soft stools which I attributed to those oh-so-gross period poops. Oh, let's not forget my peeing once an hour.
I'm only mentioning all this because I have a 1 1/2 year old daughter who I had a period with in the very beginning of my pregnancy with her. I had a period on November 16th, 2010 and gave birth August 17, 2011, the day before my due date. Meaning my time of conception at Nov 10th, 2010. So I have a history of periods while pregnant.
So I guess what I'm wondering is has anyone else experienced a period and still been pregnant? My lower body is sore and I'm getting anxious to know what's going on. I'll be scheduling an appt in the next week if it doesn't pass.
