Hi Ladies, 

 

I am so confused. This past month has been stressful, happy stressful but still very stressful. My Fiancee just moved in!!! YIPPIE! But on to the confusing part....

I have very very regular cycles and keep track of them simply using FertiltyFriend.  Our method of "protection" is to use condoms from the moment my period starts then to wait till about 5 or so days after Ovulation (I am watching for the patch of EW to end then counting about 5 days) to stop using condoms until my period starts again. This has worked for MONTHS reliably.  Until this week..

 

I was due for my period on Thursday, Sept 27th. I am never more than a day off either way but now it is Wednesday of the next week! I am 6 days late.  For the past 4 days I have had brown spotting and a tension in my abdomen, a bit of dizziness yesterday but BFN today and yesterday. I have 2 children already and have never had anything like this happen before ALSO I have been able to get a BFP at least by the first day I would have expected my period.  Thoughts?

 

Does anyone think I am pregnant? Why has my period not started yet? Could the stress cause a crazy month? Could I have misread the signs and Oed later so that I actually am pregnant? Couldit be a chemical pregnancy? OR Ectopic? Kind of going crazy right now! 

 

Thanks, 

Andrea

What happened? Sounds like you ovulated late and may indeed be pregnant. Hope you get the answer you want

That happened to me last month- 6 days of brown spotting and then full on bleeding for a week.  It was an emotional roller coaster!  Stress, sickness, travel...there are many things that can mess with your cycle.  But I ONLY have spotted like that when I was pregnant so I was sure I was...glad I wasn't for the timing was bad but now I'm wanting...

Take care.
