ok i joined specifically so i could post in this thread... don't judge me lol
the bf and i were naughty and used the pull out method for a week and a half back in the middle/end of november. he's usually pretty good at pulling out, so i don't THINK he got any in there, but one time after getting up to clean off i do think i felt/saw some slide out. plus we did another no-no and did it 2-3 times in a row multiple times, so there could've been leftover spermies in his pre-ejaculate (tmi sorry i know).
now, i just got off birth control early last month, AF came immediately after on the 8th of nov. so i'm not sure if i ovulated because my hormones may still be out of whack, BUT i do know that the last time i came off birth control, my period came the very next month, so i would assume i ovulated the month i went off bcp. if i did ovulate, it would've been anywhere from the 18th to the 25th of november (i never keep track of my ovulation, but i did notice i had ewcm from the 19th-22nd).
i started feeling really odd about the 28th, i had to pee a lot and i wanted to eat everything in sight except for cinnamon poptarts, which i normally love. i also had extreme fatigue. this went on until the 2nd of december. i don't feel like i have to pee quite as much, although still a little more than normal. still hungry. i'm extremely tired all the time, i have random achey lower back pains that come and go, and very light cramping which has been going on since probably the 1st. it's not AF cramping, either, it's actually much milder and a bit more constant.
now, my period is regular in that i have one every month, but my actual cycle tends to very from 28-35 days in length, which is driving me crazy in this situation because AF COULD have come today, but it also has a week left to show up before i can call it late.
i went to the doc. on the 1st to pick up a new bcp, they did a urine test obviously and it turned up negative, although i'm fairly certain it would've been too early to show up at that point. i took an FRER this morning because i'm paranoid and POAS is oddly satisfying, and it turned up negative. but today has been the WORST as far as fatigue goes, i got 8 hours of sleep last night, woke up exhausted, took a 2 hour nap just a bit ago and i'm still tired.
i'm not sure if i don't trust the negative because secretly i want to be pregnant (which is dumb because it's not great timing at all and bf would be happy, but not immediately) or because i'm not out of the woods yet.
i do know i don't like seeing the BFN's even though i'm not supposed to want a baby right now :(
also, i don't temp so this may be irrelevant, but i do know my normal temperature is anywhere from 97.1-97.4, and this morning it was 98.1.
sorry for the novel ladies!
