Im extremely confused right now, nervous and scared. I have been doing lots of research and have found out that it is in fact possible to be pregnant and have a period. I just need someone to make me believe that I could possibly be pregnant bc right now it doesnt seem real. I will be going to the doctor next monday for a blood test but right now I have just been taking over the counter pregnancy tests.
First of all, sorry if its TMI but I feel like I should explain everything so you all understand whats going on. Here its goes…..my husband doesnt know yet btw. I havent told him bc Im not even sure if I really am since Im having my period.
I stopped taking birth control in Sept/Oct of 2013, I have been on birth control (the pill form) since I was 18, I am 23, turning 24 in August. My husband and I have had unprotected sex since I have been off BC, but not every time. We have used condoms and he has used the pull out method. Its just been a mix of everything really, sometimes we would use condoms, sometimes we wouldnt. We wouldnt have sex like every day though, maybe three or four times a month at the most. We werent ttc but if it happened then it happened. I/we just thought it wouldnt happen for a while bc I have been told by doctors and others that theres a high percent of women that usually conceive children a year or so after getting off birth control so we thought I would be that high percentage. I also sort of thought that I would struggle ttc bc my periods have never been regular when I was NOT on birth control. The BC helped regulate my period but when I was not on it, each month my period would come earlier and earlier. For example, in May it would come on the 20th, June the 17th, July the 14th, remember this is when Im not on birth control. I have NEVER had a late period, it has ALWAYS came early. I have always questioned my ability to have children bc of that reason. My husband had always told me to go have it checked out but I thought I would worry about that when we actually started trying.
Ok…so I had my period in Dec of 2013, I dont rememeber the exact date…I always write it down in my planner and I did in Dec. but stupid me threw that planner away when Jan. came. I think…I think I started my period on the 17th of Dec. maybe the 14th, I dont know why the 14th keeps popping up in my mind but Im just going to go with the 17th. and my husband and I did have unprotecte sex at least once after my period in Dec. Jan. rolls around and its the week that Im supposed to start my period, which is the on the week 13th – 19th, I know I was supposed to start then but I just didnt know what day. I had been feeling pressure all that week and some slight cramping. I always feel pressure like a day or two before I start my period and then I start mayjorly cramping the day that I start my period. The 17th came and no period, I was still feeling pressure and slight cramping just no period. On the 18th, that evening, probably around 6 pm, I went and bought one of those $1 pregnancy test from Dollar General. I honestly didnt think it would be positive bc I was only a day late on my period, I thought it was too early to tell. I took the test and waited, when the test was done there was a very dark line on the “C” and no other line, meaning I was not pregnant. I sat there for a while longer, thinking “maybe its just my period being weird”, I decided to take the test apart (curiousity gets the best of me lol) I wanted to see what was inside the test and what it actually was. When I took it apart, I seen a very, very faint line that was supposed to be on the “T”. I put the test back together and seen that there were TWO lines, a line on the “C” and on the “T”! It was a faint “T” line but it WAS there and the longer I waited, the darker it got. I had only bought one so I went back to Dollar General and got two more. I took the 2nd one a couple hours later, same result, very faint “T” line and I didnt take this one apart this time. On the morning of the 19th, I took the third one, same result, very faint “T” line. My husband and I also had sex that morning (he didnt ejaculate), idk if that would have anything to do with my period or not but I thought maybe sex might have jolted my body in to making my period come (at this point if thought of every single think that I think might not even be possible). Around, 1 or 2 pm that day, I went to the bathroom to go pee and when I sat down and realized there was spotting in my panties and when I wiped it was light pink. I called my mom (now my mom knows) and told her what had happened, she said that its ok for that to happen, wiping and there being light pink is normal, just as long as theres no cramping. I trust my mom and her knowledge (shes had four kids and more than four misscarriages). So i didnt think anything of it. By the time 4 had come around, I was cramping a little more and bleeding like I was on my period so I went and got another PG test, this one was a little more expensive and it came in a pack of two. It was the one were you peed on the stick thing, the others you had to pee in a cup and use the little droplet thing. When I peed on it, I was bleeding and camping, full blown period mode as i call it. That test came out positive, just like the others, the line was faint but it was there. Later on that night, around 7, I would say. I took the second one and it messed up. Usually the lines on the tests are blue but theres were clear but I could still see then lines and it was in fact positive. By now I was confused, I was about to tell my husband but I decided to wait till I was off my period and take another one after that. My periods only last about 3 days. On the 20th, a monday, I went to work, still having my period, like any other day. I did more research and found a thing called a chemilcal pregnancy. I read up on that and kind of self diagnosed myself with that. That day, after I got off of work, I went and got another $1 pregnancy test, I thought, surely it wont be postive, Im on my second day of my period. I took the test and same as the other.
Today is the 21st, as of today, I have taken 6 tests and 5 of those 6 have been postive, the 5th one messed up so im not really going to count that one. I am on my period and….I know this sounds really gross and probably TMI but when I took the one yesterday, there was even blood in the cup when I peed and the test is still positive.
I am going to take another one when I get off my period and if this one is positive, I will tell my husband then we will go to the doctor on monday. My mom seems to think that my body hasnt realized its pregnant yet and that explains the periods but if theres enough hormone for a test to recognize then I would think my body would know too but then I have heard of lots of women having a period the first month or two of their pregnancy.
I just need some words of wisdom, some advise…..something. Im so confused. I dont understand and Im driving myself crazy bc of it.
Here are the pictures of the tests.
the “T” lines are very faint and hard to see. Its easier to see them in person. These are the first three that I took.
The first test in this picture was the one I took when I started my period, The second one is the one that messed up. The last one is the one I took yesterday.
It actually looks like most of them are nagitive in the pictures but I promise there are faint “T” lines on all of them. I had my mom look at them, just to make sure I wasnt seeing things lol.
Thanks for reading and thanks for your help!
