So my husband and I have been TTC and I ovulated back in October 8-11.
I was supposed to get my period about 6-7 days ago and so far I’ve just been getting random spotting here and there. Brownish pinkish spotting. I’m usually on time with my period if not like a day late and it shows up. But I don’t even have my regular period symptoms which include bad cramps and sore breasts.
I think I’ll take a test but I’m sure that it’ll come up negative because there’s no way I can be pregnant and still be “bleeding” and on my “period”
Has anyone else ever experienced this?

@WagonWheel: If your period is a week late, definitely test! It should show by now. & it’s totally possible to be spotting and be pregnant, it’s actually very common in early pregnancy.

@ajillity81: Thank you for your quick response! I will definitely test in the am.
@roweboat: I read that as well, but there is so much misinformation and correct information it’s mind boggling. I have a period app that I use and it states that I’m 10 days late. Ai! I’ll have to take the test to see what the outcome is.

I am in the same boat as you – a day late, and no normal period symptoms. No spotting or nothing.
Good luck and let us know!

I agree with the others, take a test!
I was over a week late 2/3 months ago and I wasn’t pregnant. I don’t know why I was that late (usually my period are ~32 days) but this one was over 40 days. But I was really stressed and I had also stopped taking the pill recently.
So there are other reasons for being late. But you may be pregnant !

@WagonWheel: It is extremely common to spot/bleed and still be pregnant. Better take a test.
I spotted for a week before I took a test and it was positive.

@WagonWheel: I was using a period app too in order to keep up with my periods. I tested when I was a day late & got a BFN, waited 3 days and got a BFP! 3 Bfp’s to be exact, lol.

You don’t need to wait until the morning if you are a week late. Spotting is common in early pregnancy. Take a test ASAP and let us know!

Thank you for all this information. I will definitely take a test soon.
I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high as I don’t know what the results will be.

@WagonWheel: Umm, why haven’t you tested yet? Lots of women have spotting during early pregnancy! Go pee on some sticks, girl!

Well I bought a test last night and used it this morning with a negative result.
I think I’ll just keep waiting to see if aunt flo comes, if not, I will be scheduling a doctors appointment!

Are you sure you ovulated when you did? My guess is that you ovulated later and that is why you are late.

@WagonWheel: I’m wondering the same as PP… are you sure you O’d when you say you did? Are you temping or using OPKs, or just an app?
