|Sorry if this is TMI-but what can light pink spotting mean?
I've never done any natural family planning or anything & I've also NEVER been regular in the 16 years I've been menstruating, but early last week or the week before for 2 or 3 days I had very faint light pink stuff when I wiped...what can that mean?
DH & I ahven't used any form of BC (besides an occasional withdrawal ) for a few months...
My youngest DS just turned 3 in January & is still nursing at least 2-3 times a day & through the night (family bed) & I didn't get AF back until he was 16 months old (I had been w/out AF for EXACTLY 25 months to the day...lol) I'm not even sure when my last AF was...I'm pretty sure I've had one since Christmas though, maybe even in January & February, I'm just not sure.
I had taken BC pills for a few months back in the late summer/early fall to try & regulate my hormones in case they were attributing to my constant depression that I've had since ds was born, but stopped taking them b/c they made me feel different & cramp even MORE than I did as a teenager when I would spend hours with a heating pad...UGH!
Anyway, can any of you cycle gurus give me a heads up? What could it have been? BTW-I've also noticed w/in the past week or 2 some slimey mucousy yuck..what can that be?
: me please!
Thanks a TON in advance!!
|still nurse my 3 yo 2 X's a day or so & some through the night, so I'm not sure if that's enough to mess w/ me, I don't even think I have milk anymore...
I'm not sure I can afford to go to a doc to get a serum test, but if it'll LMK one way or the other I'd almost be willing to try it! I take some meds that I'm not sure are safe if pg & I don't want to stop taking them "JIC" but at the same time I don't want to take something that can harm a developing baby ...
UGH...I don't know what to do...lol
|See, something else that I'm not getting is that I found out about all 3 of my kids EARLY & almost EXACTLY 8 months before their due dates

I dunno...they always called me "barely pregnant" when I went in for those first visits & I liked knowing (for the most part-I was TERRIFIED & still am of miscarriage) I wanted to do everything just right so that I'd have a healthy pgcy & baby...take vitamins & not drink caffeine, eat right, not take meds that could harm baby...etc.
I'm just sooooo confused!!!!!
|The other one this am was also negative...I'm still not convinced though...I'm going to have to go in to the doc Monday I guess...I'm soooo scared!
OTOH, I did do a Google search on the meds I take & read on several sites about each & they seem to be generally safe...I'll talk to the doc about them too though.

Hmm - do you know how many days past ovulation you are? You might be testing too soon. Or you might not have ovulated when you thought you did. How are you keeping track of your cycles?
Are you breastfeeding?
Also, per the User Agreement you can't post a link to another board.
Just an FYI.
I see you are in Southern Indiana - near Evansville? I have some friends there and am always surprised when someone is from that area. There are a few folks on the board from that area.
