Okay, this is my first time posting, so bare with me, please!
I do not chart, but from reading a lot of posts, I guess I should start.
Here's a little history: my husband and I had been trying to conceive for around 6 months. On January 8th, I got a positive pregnancy test. On January 17, I started bleeding and I continued to bleed and miscarried for about a week. My cycles are typically a little bit longer: anywhere from 30-38 days.
I've tried other OPKs before, but this month I tried the Clear Blue tests. I test twice a day (once in the morning and once in the afternoon). I got a smiley face in the morning on February 6. In the afternoon it was negative. My husband and I BD on the Sunday prior to the smiley, Monday (the day of smiley), Tuesday, and Wednesday. I'm not sure when I actually O'd, but I'm assuming maybe it was Tuesday or Wednesday.
That brings me to today, which would make me 13 or 14dpo. I've been testing for the past few days and they are all negative. I know that sometimes the body can gear up to O-ing and then not O. I also know that it's possible I ovulated later. I'm hoping that's not the case, because we didn't BD that much after that (maybe once during the next week after that...and that time was just for fun!)
Late last week, I was CONVINCED I was pregnant. I've had quite a few "symptoms" such as some slight pulling/twinges, really sore boobs, a little nausea, sore throat, a lot of creamy discharge, etc. But now, I'm stumped. I've been getting negative tests, but I'm still having these symptoms. The biggest thing is probably the soreness in the boobs, and this NEVER happens to me before AF arrives.
What makes this all the more difficult is that I don't really know when AF is due, since I miscarried last month. If I count the first day of my miscarriage has CD1, I could be due for AF pretty soon (that is IF my cycle returned to normal after the miscarriage.)
I guess my main question is do you think I'm out for this month? I know it's so hard to say since I'm not sure exactly when I ovulated. I have enough tests to test for the rest of this week, but part of me says to just save myself the disappointment and assume AF is coming.
