- Wedding: February 2018
Hello! I’ve been reading these boards since around the time I got engaged (so about 2 years ago), but have never posted.
Just a warning.. I am a teacher on summer break, so I’ve had plenty of time to sit and think about this. I’m driving myself crazy :).
We got married in February 2018- I was on birth control from January 2018- January 2019. Since that time, we have been NTNP. However, we worked opposite schedules during that time, so sex was not as “regular”- not every other day/every few days. Average 2-3 times a week, just on the weekends. We truly were going with the flow- I am not doing any OPK’s/temping, so I don’t actually know when I ovulate.
My cycle lines up nicely with the month, so I usually get my period the last few days of the month. February, March and April my cycles were pretty normal- 29- 31 days each.
Soo… this brings us to May. My last period was 4/29- 5/2. I was expecting to start my period 5/28 according to the FLO app. Our work schedules were even more crazy, so we only had sex twice- 5/16 and 5/29. My app tells me I should have ovulated 5/17, but I have no idea if that’s true. I was very aware that I *could* be pregnant this month, but wasn’t too concerned about it. I started taking tests a couple of days before my missed period, so far all negative.
I started spotting brown/pink on the afternoon of Sunday 6/1 and thought it was my period- but it was SUPER light and only brown/pink. It was off and on until yesterday afternoon, and seems to have completely stopped. I’ve had some nausea on and off the last week or so, and I’m usually fine after I eat something. I can only eat a little bit at a time, so I’m trying to snack throughout the day. I’m only eating like half a “normal” meal at a time, which is VERY unlike me. I just get full easily! Boobs aren’t sore, I’m exhausted, but that might just be because my dog is going through a 1 year sleep regression haha (she wakes us up with the sun EVERY DAY).
Additionally, we had a surprise pregnancy that was either a chemical pregnancy or miscarriage in December 2017. I didn’t get a positive test until about 5.5 weeks and lost the pregnancy two days later. I never bled (makes sense, since I likely never implanted), and I have some hope that we’ve at least probably made it farther than last time.
I apologize for the novel, but all this to say that I am pretty sure I am pregnant. My app says I am 6 days late, and the last time that happened I was pregnant. So did I concieve on 5/16 and implant very late? I’m trying to avoid Dr. Google, but my search has led me to think that very late implantation gives a probablity of miscarriage. Or did I weirdly ovulate ridiculously late and I’m just way earlier along than expected? According to every app I have, I *should* be 5w 1d today. I’m going to hold off on testing for a few days since I know I just implanted.
I don’t know what I’m searching for here…maybe some advice? Someone who’s been through something similar? Someone who is much smarter than I am and has some insight on what might be happening?
