Hello all! I am ttc #3. Before my first pregnancy I had very irregular periods. With my second pregnancy I never had a period after the first was born. I remember having IB with both but cant remember when. My last period was 9/20 to the 23rd (only my third period since pregnancy #2, no spotting in between). On the 1st I woke up to a very bright red smear on the Tp. This continued throughout the day each time I used the bathroom that day, the 2nd, and today. I am feeling crampy and bloated. My breasts are sore, doIntwant to wear a bra because its uncomfortable. I know typically woman dont ovulate right after a period...but I dont remember ever having O pain and bleeding before. Wondering whats going on...I DTD while on my period and the day after. If this is O stuff I tried again on the 1st just in case. Thoughts? Thanks!!
Anyone have any advice?
Thank you in advance.
Are you charting? If not, it's really hard to know what bleeding is actually menstruation and what is abnormal bleeding. I recently had bleeding one week after my period (with some other symptoms) and it was a ruptured corpus luteum cyst. ....and that period that I thought I had, was actually early pregnancy bleeding. Charting helped me to understand what was going on. ....that and my ER visits.
Have you taken a pregnancy test? If I was having bleeding that wasn't near my expected period time, and it was more than faint spotting, along with O type pains, I would call my obgyn....or head to immediate care.
Thank you GuavaGirl for your response! I took a pregnancy test today and it was negative
Im assuming if it had been implantation bleeding that I would have a positive test by now? Im due to start my period any day...I guess Ill just have to wait and see. Grrr I hate waiting!! Lol!
Just thought Id pop in and say no period yet but no positive test yet either. Fingers crossed
Not even sure if anyone is following this thread, but thought Id come back to say STILL no period or pos test. I was going crazy testing everyday and getting negatives so I took a week off. Taking a test today...wish me luck!
Good luck :) I can't imagine being in this situation. Thinking positive thoughts for you!
Youre so sweet, thank you for the kind words
Huge major sad face
test was neg...again. Man...I hate feeling so sad after seeing that!!! Might be time for a trip to the doc
So frustrating! I'd go to the doctor, too. Frustrating
