The "I might be pregnant but I wasn't trying" thread - Page 91

post #1801 of 1837
Okay I really just need a safe place to rant... Last baby is a 1+ and I was supposed to be not getting pregnant till I had my health back on track (major adrenal fatigue and candida issues) and here I am on my second cycle pp and either I'm pregnant or my body hates me and I'm going crazy wanting to know which so that I can get on with life (and healing if I'm not...) I know that I for sure o'd but not a 100% on the day as I missed a few days temping while I was getting up at all hours to check on ewes that are lambing... But I'm at least 10dpo cycle day 31st (normal is 26-28) and we dtd about 4 days before the o day my chart is giving me... So the thing that has me freaking is a few days ago I had to stop taking my supplements as the one day I actually dry heaved after taking them and then the second day got really sick from them... Took a few tests and they were all negative and I started getting pretty bad cramps and I thought oh there you go it's just AF mystery solved! Only I'm now on day three of cramps with no AF and I'm feeling worse and worse everyday! Took another test today and it was - ... Really don't know what to think as I've never had cramps more then a day before AF and with my last two pregnancies I got a bfp around 9dpo, but with my first it was over 5wks before the dr got a very unexpected bfp...

Hi, I'm new to this whole posting in forums thing. So sorry if TMI. I really need some help. Me and my bf had sex during one of my best ovulation days April 2nd. (At the time I didn't know I was ovulating.) At work two days later I went to use the restroom and noticed a couple of pink spots on the tissue only. I had some cramping, not unbearable as it usually is on my cycle. The next day light Brown mucousy spotting, and today it's gone. Since then I feel pregnant...tired,a lot of nausea, slight lack of appetite because I'm scared I'll throw up. I have one child and I felt this way with her, but I'm also thinking its way too early to feel pregnancy symptoms let alone implantation bleeding. Has this ever happened to anyone????

Are you sure you didn't o earlier? How many days dpo are you now? I wouldn't write off being pg but it just might be a wacky cycle as well. Hope you get the answer your hoping for and soon! smile.gif

KaliShanti I just saw from another post of yours that you are in fact pg. Congrats and all the best with your pregnancy! smile.gif

Honestly Idk I've never really followed the whole DPO thing, I know ima wreck. But if I go but the calendar it would be 2DPO.
post #1807 of 1837
Yeah that is kind of early to have symptoms unless you o'd early then you thought... That said I just knew that I was getting pg the night i conceived my middle ds so maybe you/your body just knows something is up? Are you still having the same symptoms? A couple more days and you could start testing. Would you be okay with being pg if you are?
post #1808 of 1837
OSTC, I'm still having the symptoms...more tiredness then anything else. I've taken 4 hpts... all negative. I went to my ob/gyn because I'm still spotting and he believes my hormones are either off or its an early miscarriage. I had a bhcg Thursday and will get the results tomorrow. I will keep you posted. And I wouldn't mind a 2nd child. Lol

I am in this place far too often.  But this time I'm pretty sure it's not just a wondering if...

My cycles are 23-26 days and I'm on day 31 today with barely pink and brown smears of mucus on toilet paper once or twice a day for the last couple of days.  I don't ever get a positive pregnancy test until another few days from now, but I took three anyway : /  Target brand was a faint line at 10 minutes so I read that as a positive.  Then I took two First Responses, one last night (waste!) and another this morning, both negative.  So now I just wait and see.  The only time I've ever started spotting like this later than my period was due I was pregnant.  So I'm assuming I'm going to be due Christmas Day.  Poor husband, he's just in limbo- he needs me to be totally certain before he'll give the idea any energy.  

We weren't trying and I thought we were more done than not, but like he said yesterday, he hadn't had a vasectomy yet so he must've still been open to the idea of another baby.  I'm feeling pretty nervous about people's reactions to number 6, and also how it will effect my work- I teach preschool in my home and would need to take the month of January off.  I'm nervous about being 37 and being 56 when the baby would graduate from high school.  I am not looking forward to the four months of nausea and headaches and throwing up.  But besides those reservations I would feel so absolutely lucky and blessed to get to have another baby : )

(weird- posted twice)

post #1811 of 1837

I'll have to wait a month to tell people, that will be so hard!  At least there's the due date club- that saved me last time while I wasn't telling yet.

post #1812 of 1837

Yesterday I thought my period was coming on, but then more brown.  Every time I wipe there's a little reddish brown or brown smear on the toilet paper.  With each baby my spotting at this point has gotten more and more.  Last time I was pregnant, I had some pink spotting for two days, then had red blood on t.p. for three days, then it peetered off into brown spotting, totaling a whole week of spotting/bleeding.  

I had three days of pink and brown spotting, and this is day two of a little more red and brown spotting, so I figure in a day or two something will be more clear!!

If I had to put money on it, I'd say pregnant.  Yesterday I left the house to go to the bank- first I took a wrong turn, then I passed the bank entirely.  I was so spacey!  

Since it was unplanned, I'm so very anxious to know for sure so I can get excited!!  So glad this board is here- more satisfying somehow than writing in a journal : )

Limbo land is so hard isn't it! Have you taken any more tests yet? I hope you get the answer your hoping for!

Pregnant!  I didn't have a preference for either outcome actually, but I knew I'd be excited if I was pregnant and I wouldn't be excited if I wasn't.  : )

I was pregnant, but miscarried at 4wks greensad.gif So I'm back to trying to get my health back in order and hopefully then I can get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy once I have this health stuff sorted out smile.gif

I'm 27 and concerned that I might be pregnant. I was super duper not trying. LIke...whatever the opposite of trying is, I was doing that. Except that I realized I'd missed a pill and it turned out I'd missed several (4 maybe?) and hadn't noticed because I'm starting graduate school and I've been all over the place distracted. Last period was August 6ish and this one was due on Tuesday (It is Thursday today) except usually it starts as soon as I stop my pills which was on Friday (I wanted it to show up early). I quit my pills a few days early because all of a sudden I was having pinkish/tan discharge and then a little spotting after sex, then a little more red spotting after some rather vigorous intercourse one day. I was all, "hooray! period!!" but now. It was just spotty, not flow and only lasted for an afternoon. My breasts were MASSIVE and killing me, and I was achy. Now I still don't have a period, I have no sore breasts, I have some intense bloating, mild dull ache in the gut (a feeling I described to a friend as not painful, but "uterine") and exhaustion. I've been peeing more than normal, I've also been gassy. Soooooooo....i am paranoid and hoping it's completely unwarranted. Thoughts? Anyone? Bueller?

 

PS. I've been so emotional I'm surprised I haven't yet drowned from crying over nothing.

I would like an opinion. I am on bcp, though sometimes I miss, I've been pretty consistent lately. Anyway, started my last cycle on 8/24 and it was heavy like normal day 1, day two was regular half the day then extremely light bleeding barely there day 3. I normally have a full 4-5 day cycle. Ive been blowing it off to be nothing, but now lately I've been having a pulling feeling in my pelvic area, and my emotions are way out of wack. I feel depressed, tired, irritated... Everything but happy for the most part. And my next cycle is still a couple weeks away. Pregnancy is obviously in the back of my mind(as I think it's natural for women to analyze anything weird and get that pregnancy paranoia) but does it sound like anything? Pregnancy or something else? I dunno. I'm just trying to see if someone can ease my nerves a little. I tend to be a hypochondriac as it is.

Thanks for any opinions. As for a test, I plan to wait till after my next period if its all weird(or non existent) too.

No one has posted on this thread in a while, which, I guess, is a good thing! But even an unplanned pregnancy is a good thing in my mind, even when things might be tight.

 

My period is a week late. I am keeping from using the lone test I have kept for a year since my last preggo scare. Either my period will come or not. But it is very rarely this late, so I am all over the pregnancy boards, preparing for the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy! I have two kiddos already, each of whom were planned. So I am new to this possibility. 

 

My children are from my previous marriage and my current partner really wants kiddos of his own, someday. Right now we really aren't in a good place to have kids, mostly because I am working to pay off lots of debt from my previous marriage. Also, I just started at a wonderful job that gives amazing maternity/paternity benefits, but they don't kick in until a year! And if I am preggo now, I will be due two months before that year is up, meaning, no paid maternity leave. Oy. But aside from the financial standpoint, I would be happy and excited to welcome a new special being into our little family. 

 

Just looking for other people who are worried they are preggo, but haven't tested yet. Anyone?
