Hi! I had a m/c last month at exactly 5 weeks (bleeding started Wed, Aug 1 with an HCG level of just 16, passed some tissue Sunday Aug 5., bleeding ended a day or 2 later). Approx Aug 20-21 I had the EWCM and we did the deed, not to try to get pregnant again already, just worked out that way. Within a few day I started getting a little pulling/pains low on the sides, and have been urinating much more, my BBs are not sore, but the nipples are more erect and the areola are much larger than normal. On Thursday I went to the bathroom and when I wiped there was a tiny bit of pink/brown. I *think* it was implantation bleeding, as I did it last month, too, but a couple of days later in the cycle. (I have 2 boys but never had implantation bleeding with either of them.) I get slight nausea the last couple of days off and on, and I have been very tired feeling. Oh, and I have had very slight cramping after I have an O.
I am due for AF Monday. I went ahead a took a test today, but it was negative. It is only 2 days past implantation (assuming that's what it was), and even though I've never tested before I was a few days late with the boys, and this last month I tested every day bc I just knew I was, I still didn't get a positive until 5 days after implantation. I feel like I am pregnant again, but also the symptoms aren't as strong as they were last month. Such as my BBs aren't sore and the nipples are tender, and my crampiness isn't near as bad. Just slight. So I am wondering if I am not pregnant but my body just is reacting a bit bc I was not too long ago, or if I am and it just isn't reacting as much bc it's been there, done that so recently.
With my boys, the oldest (9) I had no idea, I was just pretty late and decided I should test. My youngest (3) I had sore BBs, large areola, and was late so I tested.
Anyway, I feel like I have yammered on and on... sorry! I do have another test I will use Monday assuming AF doesn't show up. Just wondering if I should feel hopeful or chalk it up as a month busted.
Thanks in advance for any advice/suggestions!
After my MC I still felt pregnant for quite a while afterwards, when I was getting my 1st period after the MC I started off spotting light pink blood which I thought was implantation I took a test and it was negative, spotting carried on for a couple of days & then AF came in full swing..
Maybe your experiencing the same thing as me or maybe you are gonna get your BFP..
Good luck Sorry for your loss x
Thanks for the advice. I haven't had any symptoms since the day after my bad cramping the Thursday night after I started bleeding Wednesday, so I don't *think* it should be from that. I think either I am pregnant or I am having a strange pms. Which, any pms is strange for me, as I rarely ever have any signs my period is on it's way, I just start. Luckily I have always had a really predictable cycle, so at least I'm not surprised by it. LOL
After I had that spotting earlier today, I do wonder what is going on. Last month, when I was pregnant, I spotted 2 days before af was due, and it took until I was 3 days late to get a bfp. This month I have now spotted Thursday and then again this morning. Both times just like last month, just pink when I wiped a couple of times, then turned brown and went away the same evening.
This afternoon after the spotting, I had a bad hotflash, too, the same as the last month. I just don't know what in the world is going on.
I'm sorry for your loss, as well. It can be tough, even when it is early on like mine.
Wanted to update - this morning I woke up around 4 to urinate, and when I got up for the day around 8, I noticed my BBs feeling a bit more tingly, a bit more... there. I don't know if that means anything, but just thought it was worth mentioning.
Your body plays up a lot after a MC, but the way your explaining it makes it sound like you could be preggo! Why don't you ask the doc for a blood test they will probably be able to tell you. Fx'd for you.
& Thanks, yep any loss is hard no matter when it happens just one of the horrid things in life! x
I may if I don't get full AF soon. So far yesterday I had 2 episodes of heavy spotting, and since then nothing. This morning my BBs hurt even more, I feel off in my belly - not hungry, kind of nauseous, kind of light headed. I had some cramping after a manual orgasm (sorry if that's TMI!), as well.
I am just not sure what to think. Before I started the spotting I kept wondering if I could be pregnant. Now after the spotting I am actually wondering even more bc of how I am feeling. Sigh... so irritating. I just wish AF would come on full force if she's going to.
Ahh having to wait is awful isn't it haha I'm very impatient!
Personally, I had similar symptoms and it was just my AF coming but you know your own body and I very much hope it is your BFP! Just gotta wait it out.
Make sure you keep me updated though, be nice to find out some good news!
