So sorry for the stress you are having, it sucks so much! I wouldn’t say you aren’t KU yet..only when AF really shows. You are still in it! Good luck!

If you got your positive on CD16-17 then you probably O’ed around 17 or 18 of your cycle. How long are your LP’s?  If you are now at 13dpo then i am assuming you have a short LP?  There is a difference between spotting and light period. It seems like this “light” one that you are having could be AF and not just spotting. 

We all do symptom spotting.  I dont think you are alone on this one.  i would suggest you wait a couple of days and try to test again with a FRER, if it is still negative and AF is not here then go for a bloodwork. 

Hopefully you get your answer soon GL and FX :)))

Was your first month of TTC also your first month off of birth control?

@DaisyBelle:  Symptom spotting is so hard not to do! Heck, I convinced myself multiple times that I was KU while I was still on the pill because I was symptom spotting. It’s okay to do it and MrsR4Ever is right in saying that you are not alone there. What sucks is many of our symptoms are caused by elevated progesterone after we O and may not always mean we are KU. It’s a huge bummer.

@DaisyBelle:  Great advice given from PP’s. Remember just because you get a positive OPK does NOT mean you actually ovulated. The only way to have a better idea when you actually O’ed is to temp and chart. Also it can take up to 3 days after your + OPK to O. Good luck!

Also. Just as someone who has been trying for 11 cycles. Try to keep your head up and think more positively saying it will never happen, is not going to make this process any easier. This is your FIRST month TTC.

@DaisyBelle:  Still, weening off of other medication could have caused changes in your hormone balances which could contribute to changes in PMS symptoms. Cramping, fatigue, heartburn and light headedness could also be a sign of something else (dehydration, stomach bug that you don’t even realize is a bug, etc) Or you could be pregnant and just don’t know it yet 😉

 

I totally understand what you’re saying about being anal/anxious and not wanting to temp/chart. I didn’t either. It took me a few cycles to calm myself and stop symptom spotting. Everytime I feel something “different” now, I just tell myself it’s just part of my cycle and anticipate AF. I don’t even keep tests of any kind (OPK, or HPTs) in the house. Too stressful! Good luck to you and I hope it doesn’t take you long to get your BFP!
