5 days late but spotting 6 days before AF due??


Hi ladies,

I am slowly but surely driving myself insane here! I am now 5 days late for my af but i started spotting & passing brown & dark red cm 6 days before af was due. It wasn't enough to fill a pad, in fact only used 1 a day for the first 2 days and then nothing at ll, it was only there until I wiped. The spotting stopped Wednesday last week - the day my af is due.

I am absolutely shattered and have slept for the most of the two last weekends - though i am being reasonable and putting that down to jet lag as we recently came back from the states.

My stomach feels tight, from hip bone to hip bone everything below, its not a cramping just a dull ache and I have no signs of af.

Has anyone had any experience of this?

My last cycle, I ended up being 3 days late, but I spotted for about a week before that. Are you positive about when you actually ovulated? Because the time from your period until you ovulate can be any length of time whatsoever.

The time between when you ovulate and when you menstruate is almost always going to be 12-16 days if you have a healthy luteal phase. So... sometimes, when we think we're "late" for our period, we're actually not! We just ovulated later than we thought we did. Stress, including travel... especially over time zones and jet lag... can cause late ovulation!

Have you taken a test? If not, I would, just to be sure!

Hey squeaky1983 I'm in a similar position. My cycles are always 28-29 days, I usually start af every 4th thursday so you could say I'm like clockwork. So cd 29 was the thursday just gone so I am currently cd33 and 18dpo. I've had the odd brown spotting, not very much at all. Maybe 3 times when I've wiped and I used a tampon cozni thought I was definitely starting af coz I had all the feelings I usually do but removed it after a few hours and a tiny bit of brown was on the top. And since then nothing. Just wish af would mke up her mind. Feelin in limbo at the mo. Having tightening in my lower tummy but nothing else. Bb's have been tender but now slightly less tender today. So maybe she'll arrive today! Driving me mad!!x

Isn't it awful!!?? We've been ttc for 3 years and every month I just drive myself crazy my husband just ignores me now!!

That's why I'm holding off testing, as much as I want to I'm scared to see the appear usually half hour after testing she shows up!

I'm starting to bloat a bit now so I'm not holding my breath, she'll show up and turn my world upside down for another month!

Keep me posted on how you get on xxxx

My daughter is from FOH, so me and OH have been trying now for 14mths, I can relate to the my wanting to test. Have had months of let downs so won't be testing for a little while yet. Still no sign of the witch! Keep thinking she's here but nothing. I know she'll rear her ugly head so not gona read to much into this although it is difficult to stop that glimmer of hope. Not sure if anyone has had brown spotting and got a BFP. Have googled it and some say that is normal and it's a sign. Never had it with my daughter well not that I can remember, she'll be 4 in June so it's a long time ago and I was on the pill when I fell preggers with her. Good luck to u to. Kp eachother posted xxx

Im fine here. thought AF got me yesterday really felt as though she was coming but when I went to the loo, there was nothing only watery cm. Been having flushes though but I'm freezing.....don't know if that means anything!!

Looking forward to a weekend away to take my mind off it!

Have you tested??? The witch got me today, a week late!! I don't know y that is. I'm always like clockwork. Lil bit confused! I think that's me finished now. Really haven't got the energy to try and try anymore. It's emotionally exhausting. Good luck. Your symptoms sound promising x

No not yet hun, I agreed with my oh we'd wait until after the weekend just purely because I've been a week late before! still no signs of anything happening ...perhaps it was just an odd month for me!

Please don't give up, we've been ttc for 3 years 2 months now and not even a sniff. just take a month off, dont think about it and relax yourself. That's kind what we did this cycle, weren't even thinking about it until i started spotting....since then my mind has gone into overdrive!!
