I’ve been posting a lot this week because I’ve been so confused!!! Friday (10 days ago) I took a home pregnancy test after being 2 days late on my period which came back positive. Two more hpts that weekend were negative, as well as a negative blood test at the doctor. But, given my symptoms (sore breasts, fatigue, moodyness, upset stomach), doctor has urged that I may still be pregnant and should retest this week if my period does not come. I am not doing an ultrasound yet bc if I’m pregnant then I’m too early to really see anything. I should mention that I just came off birth control in the beginning of July, but we have been using condoms and don’t remember any accidents…
Here comes Too Much Information…
So starting yesterday I had very very faint brown spotting. Today it is more noticeable, although I don’t have so much that it leaves a mark on my underwear, I only notice when I wipe. It is a very dark brown color–no pink or red. I have minor cramping that feels like period cramping but much less than I’m used to–usually I have horrible cramps that keep me holed up in my room all day, even when I was on birth control pills.
Is this my period? Is this a pregnancy issue? I realize it could be either. It just adds to my frustration and confusion. As of Weds. I will officially be 2 weeks late. Perhaps I am one of those random and unlikely folks who got a false positive last week and this is my period coming? I am thinking of taking another hpt but maybe will wait a couple days to see if this is really AF or not.
