Spotting since 9dpo & cramps


Hi,

I am usually a lurker, but today I've decided I want to post. I'm not 100% down with the forum lingo, but I know some stuff from reading.

A little background... I'm 29 but when I was about 23 I accidently got pregnant while 'on the pill' (I missed most of the month of pills) and at about 6-8 weeks I had a MC, but my symptoms before missed AF, from what I remember, were period like cramps the week AF was due so I thought it was coming, sore BBS on the sides, and I had spotting one day when I wiped, but I don't remember when. My AF always comes on a Thursday and the week she was due I took a test around Mon or Tues that week (so 2 days before AF due) cuz the spotting/cramping freaked me out, got a BFN. Didn't get until that Sunday (3 days after missed AF... forgot about AF because it was Halloween weekend... remembered Sunday that I missed it and tested +)



I have similar symptoms now. My husband and I are NOT TTC but I did miss a ton of pills, thinking I took them when I hadn't. Anyways, here are my symptoms and I've taken tests but all so far (yesterday I got a thin blue line on a test but I think it was an evap or indent):


(Today I am around 13dpo)

-2dpo light cramps, like light AF cramps, off and on from 2dpo until now (13 dpo). I suspect O cramps around that time? Then maybe implantation cramps around this time now?

-9dpo spotting only when I wiped. Pinkish and with a little CM. Had that, only while wiping, for about 4 hours.

-10dpo no spotting

-11dpo took a test, , tiny bit of light brown spotting only when wiping

-12dpo Sticky dark (I think brown) CM only a couple dots of it when I wiped. High CP. Tested (I get excited with testing lol)

-13dpo (today) very light brown spotting on toilet paper when I wiped an hour ago. Just went potty again, nothing. Cramping off and on and have been having light AF cramps all month, but more noticeable in the past 1-2 weeks.


AF due on Thursday and will test again that day or after.


Anyone else have these same symptoms and get a BFP? I tested earlier because I get excited lol.



So just to recap for the lurkers like myself who are checking symptoms... this month I've had:

-Cramps all month
-Spotting (pink, light brown, and dark brown sticky)
-Sleepy
-I THINK I had a very faint dizzy spell at work a week ago for all of 5 seconds, but not 100% sure.
-Possibly more frequent urination... hard to tell cuz I pee a lot anyways.

I will post pix of a couple of the tests just for fun because at first my eyes were making me see a barely visible line, but now I know it's just my wishful hoping. But I know sometimes you ladies like seeing the tests, as do I Thanks!

I should also add that my AF is usually Thursday-Sunday with pretty harsh cramps (nothing like the ones I'm having now) and it's usually decently heavy. I use regular tampons and change them every couple hours and then Sundays I use the light tampons. This stuff I've been spotting doesn't look like my AF, but I was curious if it came early for a day and wicked light or what?

Although there haven't been any replies, I wanted to update in case someone is a lurker like myself.

AF was supposed to come yesterday morning as always, but haven't seen her! I have never used a First Response Rapid Results test, but I bought a box of 2 on my lunch break. It said you can use it on the day of your missed AF or after and can use any urine, not just morning urine. Welp, got a then googled the reviews and the reviews are good, but the bad reviews say that a lot of people got a after missing their AF and they ended up being pregnant! So, I'm going to grab some dollar store tests on the way home from work cuz I'm poor now after buying so many tests *sigh*. Going to test first thing in the morning. With my last pregnancy that was a MC 7 years ago, I didn't get a BFP until Sunday (always get AF on a Thursday). I would just like to know asap so we can figure out finances etc! lol and my DH has no idea that this is all going on right now.

Also, yesterday (15dpo) I had a weird pinch feeling in my left boob when I bent over and it was around the tip of the nipple to under my boob but not all the way under. even when I took off my bra (incase it was the wire), it was still there. still the same symptoms since a while ago otherwise.

Update #2


Incase any one is checking this out, I've had the same symptoms (cramping off and on, some nausea/full feeling, did have the pinched boob feeling once more) and I don't know if I mentioned this before, but my nipples look bigger and slightly darker and my blue veins in my boobs are looking more noticeable. Also, Saturday night while laying in bed it felt like a brick was in my stomach and felt like I wanted to puke. tried, but couldn't. Took tests all weekend cuz I'm insane, still BFN and my AF is now 4 days late. I haven't told DH yet cuz we aren't trying and I wan't to wait until I'm 100% sure before telling him.

Anyways, this morning around 5:20am I took a test with my first pee and I was half awake and noticed possibly a faint line (dollar tree test) like I had been getting but possibly more pronounced, with barely any dye if any at all... so I assumed it was my eyes. saved it for later on cuz I like to keep looking even though you're not supposed to.

NOW... with all my other tests that I saved, I never had a line show up more pronounced later and I used the same ones and do the same thing with them (save them for the day and open them up later to compare the strip to a tissue cuz the lighting is dark in the bathroom).

This is what I got less than 2 hours later. I gasped. Going to buy a GOOD test at lunch today and take it.

Thanks saffiya! Odd thing is... I took 2 tests with the same cup of urine this morning (I usually pee on the sticks) and 1 was a frer and 1 was frer gold digital. BOTH ! What the heck?! Still having cramps though and other symptoms. I wanna know if I am pregnant or if something bad is going on with my body I called my doc this morning and schedule an appointment for tomorrow afternoon to get to the bottom of this. Getting nervous also, took some other tests yesterday (the dreaded blue dye) which were store brand. posted pix just to share.

the odd thing with the pink positive is that ive taken about 8 of those tests cuz im nuts and saved them like I did this one and ALL of them did NOT show pink like the one I posted the other day.

hahaha that's awesome thanks I love to lurk. that's how I got started on this site lol google searches! and random funny thing... JLM is my initials lol (Lee is my middle name).

I assumed people MIGHT be reading, but good to know they are I will def let you know what the doc says. not gonna be one of those that never replies back lol that's annoying when you've been following and they never gave a final update. I read on another post that a woman, who is now 31 weeks along, NEVER got a bfp... huh?! lol

also, all I could think for the bfns was that maybe my urine was too diluted cuz I did take most throughout the day, but I used FMU on the frers today so it's like wtf?! I never had pink show up later on on the $ store ones. who knows. im gonna ask the doc if i can do a blood test cuz ive already taken a bajillion pee tests.

Went to my doc today, now just impatiently waiting for results! She said I could be pregnant or it could be something to do with my thyroid? I have hypothyroidism but I always take my pills for it.

Anyways she did a blood test for my thyroid and for hcg. She said she'll probably get results back tomorrow morning.
