Trying to figure out what is going on with my body. Very TMI (sorry)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am still BFing my DD (17 months).

 

My cycles have been irregular.  Last two cycles were 34 days and then 28 days.

 

This cycle started on September 25th... so if this cycle was a "normal" 28 day cycle, or the same as last month, I would be getting my period today.

 

Here is where it gets weird for me.

 

On October 11th, I noticed I was bleeding.  Sorry for the TMI... but it was a dark brownish discharge at first (not at all like my regular bright red menstrual blood).  Not a lot was coming out, but enough to notice.  This went on for about five days.  Towards the end it was like a light pink and clear.

 

I did not have implantation bleeding with either of my prior pregnancies... so I am really confused.  Was that a very early period, or does it sound like it was implantation bleeding?  It seems early to be implantation bleeding, but since my cycles have been wonky, I was wondering if maybe I ovulated early?

 

I took a Dollar Tree pregnancy test yesterday morning (one day before I was expecting my period on a 28 day cycle) and it was negative.

 

I only have one (Clear Blue digital) test left.

 

Does it sound like I should use it tonight?  Does any of this sound familiar to anyone or does anyone know anything or have any advice or thoughts?

 

I've been having "symptoms" - swollen breasts, back pain, headaches... but I don't know, maybe it is all in my head?

I'd wait to test again since the other test came out negative. At least wait to catch first morning urine. Or, I'd even wait until the day after tomorrow so HCG can double. You could be pregnant.
