I think your thinking makes sense. Your app is probably just defaulting to ovulation 14 days after the start of your period, so that's not meaningful. I think the earliest any pregnancy test can...

Oh, that's rough. I've been reading a lot about early ultrasounds, and it's actually good that you are measuring a week behind. That indicates that you might have conceived later than you thought. If...

My ultrasound looked normal for 5w6d, but unfortunately, there was no heartbeat. Until I see that heartbeat, I feel like I'm still in limbo, not sure if the pregnancy is going to be viable. I guess...

I just started getting mild cramps that feel exactly like menstrual cramps. I am concerned.

I can't imagine that a doctor would deny you had a miscarriage when you lost your baby at 13 weeks. Even though you didn't actually have an ultrasound, presumably there was a heartbeat at some point...

I found charting my temperatures didn't work for me. I didn't have a regular enough schedule, so my temps were all over the place. The Clearblue Easy monitor is easy to use, though of course it's a...

I tested for eight days in a row. I found that after seeing a positive result, I'd feel a bit optimistic about the odds of the pregnancy continuing, then feel more pessimistic as the day went on. It...

No need to apologize. I definitely do not consider myself pregnant at this point. Nor do the doctors. I'm not officially pregnant until there is a heartbeat. If I had a miscarriage at this point, it...

Well, if you don't see a heartbeat, they will want you to come back in a week or so. If you do see a heartbeat, then you are officially pregnant for purposes of IVF statistics. I think fertility...
