Hi Jaimee! Thanks for responding.
So I'm currently not temping. I do write down the start date of my cycles and keep track of CM. The reason I'm not temping right now is because I'm still nursing my toddler and waking up many times at night.
So my cycles for the last several months have averaged about 26 days. Right now I'm at CD 31 with no AF so far. The reason I'm concerned about a possible ectopic pregnancy is that I've been having pain in the lower left quadrant. I'm having general pain in my hips, sacrum, lower back and pelvis. Sometimes it radiates down my legs. I'm having very specific, sometimes acute pain in the lower right side.
For the past two days, I kept thinking I was just about to get my period because the cramping was more general. Yesterday morning, however, the pain became more acute and severe. I did go to the ER.
The ER Dr. said it's most likely a hernia. He ruled out appendicitis and ovarian cysts just by the location of the pain. They did a urinalysis which came back normal and said I'm not pregnant.
I've taken 2 pregnancy tests, both negative. One was the day after my period was due, but was at night. That was 4 days ago. (I just couldn't wait and it was a $ store test)
I planned on taking one yesterday morning, however I had to pee in the middle of the night and did the test. The test at the ER was in the middle of the day. This one was negative also.
So DH is going to get another test for me to take tomorrow morning, with FMU. I also am going to see my own Dr. tomorrow for a pelvic exam and to try to rule other things out.
I do think there is a great possibility I have a hernia. I also just want to make sure something else isn't going on. Especially since my period is so late.
