Here's the lowdown:
1. Cycles have been regular until now
2. Not temping but do keep track of body signs on Fertility Friend
3. Not TTC
4. DTD w/ birth control right around ovulation
5. Started spotting that day, but before DTD (this was Jan. 29th)
6. Have been spotting every day since then, some days more than others
7. According to my body signs and cycle history, AF should have shown up Sunday or Monday at the latest
8. Have felt like AF could be coming (crampy/twinge-y, backache-y, tender breasts) at least since the 5th but especially since the 10th
9. We have TTC off and on for about 4 years and had impeccable timing at times and never had any luck, so I can't imagine how I could possibly be pregnant when we used protection this time
10. I'm 41 and wondering if this could be perimenopause starting
11. No, I haven't taken a test because I'm afraid of either answer--I'm sure it would be negative but what if it's positive???
12. No new meds or anything like that to affect my cycle
13. THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!

Lay it on me. Perimenopause? Pregnant by some miracle? Something else? I know, I know, I should test. I just know if I take one it will be negative. And if I don't, I'm pregnant and I don't know what we'd do! Can we say nervous?

Thanks, ladies.

Well, naturally since I decided to go ahead and ask what people think, AF has finally shown up, lol. Now I just want to know what on earth the 19 days of spotting was about. Any ideas?
