I know this is odd but for the last week my husband and I have thought we were pregnant, we just hadn't tested yet (due to my schedule I wanted to be home to take it, and Wednesday would have been the first day I would be able due to our work schedules).

About 2 weeks ago I started cramping, nothing to bad very mild. 8 days ago I went to the restroom and had 2 pink drops of blood on the toilet paper but only that one time- which happened to be the day before my period was due. My period was due the next day- no show. Didn't not show for 7 days.

We were going to take a test tonight, then I got slight red blood flow, very light- nothing like how a period would start on that first day, but it is red. Most of the time I only see it when I wipe after I urinate (sorry, TMI). It occasionally shows up on the pad, but only when I push it up against *that area* down there to see if any comes out, but it is bright red and small amount (almost like it would be the last day of my period). I also am now nauseous, my boobs feel heavier (even hubby noticed) SUPER tired, and my nipples itch but don't hurt. Is this my period, or could I be pregnant?

Hi JustMarried1009,

You could very well be pregnant, especially if you are like clock work with your periods,(although you didn't say you were), I would suggest you treat your body as though you are pregnant because you and your husband do want a baby and are trying to get pregnant. Start taking your prenatal vitamins, don't take any over the counter medication such as asprins, cough sryup, etc unless you get it cleared by your doctor. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables, exercise. Limit your caffine and sugar intake. You could be under stress and having a harmon imblance or you could be pregnant. I would wait a couple more weeks, take a pregnancy test, if it comes out negative, I would go and have a professional one done.


Good Luck,

Faded Rose

Am I Pregnant?
I have had intercourse with my ex about a month & a half ago or so a week before my period last month.I was 6 days late last month. I thought I was preg. But, then I got my period. But, the flow was strange. It was normal the first day & 2nd day was normal during the day but at night it will get super light.. Like it would be my last day. Then I wake up & it be a bright red & a medium flow. I was really late this month I normally have my period 9th-11th. & I got my period on the 20th. As I pee it was light pink when I wiped but I didn't bleed after that. I woke up next day & saw a bit of light flow. Then as the day went on it went from spottin. I'm on my 3rd day now & I'm hardly even bleeding. I only bleed when I go urinate[I know TMI] & I wipe & there blood. But, other then that I won't bleed. I just will spot. Is there a chance I am pregnant? I have been pregnant before with my 1st child. But, I don't recall any of this happening. So, I'm concern on what is going on. If I'm pregnant or not.

I am in the same boat, i'm a very impatient person. My hubby and i have been TTC for 4 months now. The only problem is that i was on birth control for a little over a year and a half. I have only been off it for a little under 4 months. My period is usually 24 days apart. Then it went to 28 and then i was an entire week late. My LMP was Oct. 2nd then i got it again the 2nd of novembr. I haven't taken a preg test because my period the first day was heavy and then the 2nd day super light and now it's almost not even there. Could i be pregnant? Every night when i lay down to go to sleep i feel nauesa and i'm more hungry than usual. My breasts do feel more full but i don't know if this is all in my head. Please help. Fingers crossed praying for a baby!!!!!!

please anyone read this and reply
Someone please help me... So last Dec 2011 I was suppose to get my period around the 17th. Instead I ended up getting it on Christmas morning the 25th. It was light and only lasted two days. I have pcos and usually bleed 10-14 days on average and very heavy! Almost a hemmorage period.. Been seen in the er alot last year. So I was concerned that I didnt bleed as long and as much as usual. Since then I still have not bled, but instead have pressure and small flutters in my lower abdomen. I have to pee alot more now, especially waking up in the middle of the night and almost not making it. I also have been more sexually aroused.. I have taken some pg tests but one was a faint blue line and the other was negative. I know its too early to test cuz I havent missed januarys period. But does anyone think I could be pregnant?

Pink spotting a day before AF was due now a week and 2 days late
I am in same boat ladies!! I know my body so well and lately it feels like I don't lol if that makes sense. A week before AF was due I had extremely sore breast and cramps, then breast got a little better and I started feeling really tired all I wanted to do was sleep. Then a day before AF was due when wiping I saw light pink spotting so straight away I thought was my AF making its way, but only it wasn't. My AF has always been strong from start only last few days its very light. I am now 1 week and 2 days late went to see a nurse 2 days before AF was meant to be here and she took a pee analyze and she did 2 pregnancy tests that came back negative, she said if I was pregnant I would be only 4 weeks which is too early to detect so to leave it a week and ask doctor for a blood pregnancy test. She said everything I told her even she would say I was pregnant. Did another pregnancy test the day my AF was meant to come and still negative.Spotting would go from faint light pink to light brown and then back to pink and once or twice it had very tiny tiny what look like blood clots. Cramps come and go they very faint I do sometimes feel nauseous and still tired now hands and feet are very clamy and feel swollen going toilet often and tired all time. What is going on can any one help?

So hard to understand this...
Im the same too, its very frustrating, I was a week late, all BFN and then today i ave very bad cramp, and last two nights really bad nausea bordering vomiting, then I got bleeding too, bright red/pinkish, then red, now brownish and going away. I dont know how long my cycles are normally as I never needed to know, so was just going by 28 days, as I know its usually a month, But I do know when I ovulated... I had a test that was a very faint Positive, but Im not sure if it was a evap due to the bleeding... This feels like a period, but lol, where is it going??? haha Sad
