I stopped breastfeeding in March, and did not get a "regular" period since! Somewhere at the start of June, I had some kind of vaginal bleeding that lasted for a couple hours, and continued as spotting for several weeks after... When it stopped, I had my usual 6-month checkup with my OB and he said everything was great. Knowing that I will be trying to get pregnant again soon, he said that I should come back for further analysis if my period does not go to normal in a few months. At the end of August I had terrible cramps, and I was sure that my period is coming - so sure that I even placed a pad on my underwear. The pain was so strong that I had to take a pill to ease it down... and nothing happened. No period. I took a HPT, and it was negative.
Two weeks later, also accompanied with major cramping, I started this light vaginal bleeding... It already lasts for more than a week, and since it started, I started feeling dizzy when standing up quickly. Today I even felt light headed when sitting down! A friend who was with me asked me if I was pregnant. I wish... but I don't think so. My breasts are tender, but not that tender as at the start of my previous pregnancy. I feel nausea, but not as much as back then. At last - I do have this bleeding - and my last non-protected intercourse was two weeks ago... Ah, yes, for all it's worth - I also had sharp pain in the lower left part of the abdomen throughout two days (coming and going). On top of all this, I have gasses that are making me feel uncomfortable to be around other people even if I do not smell a thing...
If this all can mean that I am pregnant, woo-hoo, I'll take another HPT and rush to my OB if it comes back positive. If not - well, what the heck is going on?
