Ladies I need some help! This is my first cycle after having my son. He’s 16 months (still nursing) and we decided to try for another. After coming off the pill before we conceived my son my cycle was always 31 days, so I didn’t know if it would be the same with them returning after childbirth. I’m on cycle day 41 and no positive test yet. On CD 36 I had a little spotting and figured AF decided to show up. Well she didn’t. The next day I woke up feeling nauseous. I did end up getting sick, but was okay the rest of the day. I also has a little spotting when wiping that day. Then yesterday hubby and I did the deed in the morning and I had some bright red bleeding right after. I figured well here’s AF. I put a pad on and that was it no more bleeding. Still none. Has anything similar happened to anyone else and still been pregnant? Or is it more likely I’m going to start my period soon? I haven’t taken a test since yesterday morning, but will tomorrow if still no AF.

bjm1119: I’m sort of in a same situation as you are.. I was suppose to receive my AF sep21 tested When I was 2 days late but got BFN & tested again 5 days late but still BFN… im not sure when I ovulated but if I did I could of ovulated maybe a little late and it might be to early to tell on a PT or my levels could be low for it not to pick up on a test.. So I’m going in for a blood test soon to Know.. But I did have minor cramps, headaches here and there , stomach felt really gasy & now I just noticed my breast are a lot tender and nipples are getting sensitive. Try waiting it out a few more days and test again!

bjm1119: I think I’d be hoping I was pregnant if I had that spotting and then bleeding- because there isn’t really another logical explanation. Sounds to me like you might be pregnant- and it could be implantation bleeding? I had spotting, then bright red with my first son- which was chalked up to implantaion bleeding. At the time, I wasn’t trying to get pregnant, and I thought I had a really, really strange period. It wasn’t until the NEXT “period” was late– that I tested, so about 5 weeks later. And even THEN- the first test that I took in the evening was SOOOOOO faint. There was a line- but I had to squint. I took another one first pee the next morning and it was much darker.
This pregnancy- I took a test in the afternoon about 6 days after I was expecting my period and the line was as dark as could be. I don’t know if that’s beause pregnancy tests have come along further since six years ago….or I just had more Hcg or what.
You could easily be pregnant and not having a positive test yet!

I’ve just been so confused as to what might be going on! I was thinking possibly the spofting could have been implantation, but the bright red yesterday through me off. Could it be from irritating my cervix maybe? I did not get a positive until I was 3 or 4 days late with my son.

It’s incredibly common for cycles to be way out of whack when they finally return post partum and particularly so if you’re nursing. You can’t really rule out pregnancy if you’re still waiting for AF but it’s more than likely it’s just your hormones and body messing with you!

bjm1119: If you’re doubting the positive tests then I’d ask for a blood test as they never fail. In saying that it’s not at all uncommon for your cycle to be out of whack after going off BC.
