Hello there! This is my first post, but I have been lurking around for a couple of weeks while I have been symptom-spotting. I am 24 years old and have been with my boyfriend for 6 years. We are not actively ttc. We didn't use contraception the last time we slept together, and we both kenw there was a risk I could be pregnant. I have been driving myself mad with the symptom-spotting, and I would like some advice from all you more experienced members! I am now approx. 15dpo, and AF was due yesterday. From about 5dpo onwards I have experienced a lot of what I have assumed are early pregnancy symptoms. I started off being extremely tired, bloated and gassy, with headaches. I then started to get mild cramps and a sharp pain in my abdomen on the left-hand side. After a few days, the pain subsided. I have still been very very bloated and tired ever since, and very gassy too, and have had a really sore lower back. I took a HPT on about 7dpo. It was a BFN. I knew it was too early to test, but I was getting very excited and couldn't wait! Today at 15/16dpo I had some mild period-type cramps and the smallest amount of brown stringy discharge when wiping (sorry for tmi). This happened twice throughout the whole day, and as my AF was due yesterday, I am unsure whether this is AF coming now, or whether it is something else and there is a possibility I could be pregnant? My 'symptoms' are probably all just bad pms, and I'm just getting ym hopes up for nothing If AF isn't here by friday then I will do another test. I really hope it isn't AF! Sorry for such a long post, but I am driving myself and my boyfriend mad, so I needed a place to vent all my thoughts and feelings!
