opinion needed

Hey ladies!

Hubby and I just started TTC, ,last month, but I am having a dilemma and I don't know what to make of it. I was suppose to get AF yesterday, I have been having all the symptoms, bloating, cramps as well as some yucky brownish spotting (sorry for the TMI), however yesterday comes and goes and no sign of AF, I took 4 pregnancy test and all say BFN... Why the heck is AF not showing up. Could it be that I am stressing it to much??

Opinions welcome!

Welcome to the group!


A number of things can cause AF to no-show.  Were you on BCP before TTC?  If so, how long have you been off?


Hope we can help!

Wait a few days and take another test.  It sounds positive :-)  Could be implantation bleeding. 


I misscarried this month and starting bleeding around the day I was supposed to get my period.  The HPT's were negative before I started bleeding.  I am three weeks from the first day I started bleeding and the HPT are now positive.  So, either, it took a few days during the bleeding to rise, or I am still pregnant.  Ugh.

i stopped my bc in Feb. and I have all those same symptoms. All my tests are always BFN and when I asked my doctor about it he said it was my body adjusting after coming off the pill.

Thanks ladies for the opinions, I will take another test and do a blood test, I've under major stress before this and my period was never delayed. So I am crossing my fingers for a BFP.

Holy crap I have news.  I got my HCG levels back today and they went from 300 - 3200 in a week.  I am def. pregnant.  I work in the medical field with GYN's and not one of them has an explanation for why I got my period (normal bleeding and cramping) other than I potentially implanted late.  I got an ultrasound today even though it is really early and you could see the sac.  They have me coming back in 10 days.  Holy crap!

That is absolutely awesome emerald! A friend of mine in HS - her mom found out she was pregnant at 5 months along because she continued to have AF every month. It wasn't until she could feel the baby move that she had any idea. H&H 9 months to you!

Holy smokes Heather, that's great news! Yeah if your numbers are that high you are def pregnant!! So excited for you, hoping and praying for a sticky bean and for a happy and heathly nine months!!!


You def have me thinking, I bled today, bright red, never that color before, but only bled once, I am wearing a pad just in case, took another pregnancy test and still BFN. I am assuming AF is around the corner, it would really suck if I am pregnany only because I made an impulsive buy, and bought preseed which I hear works. Keep us updated!

Hey girl.  We used preseed, um...it totally works.  Seriously, that is what happened to me.  I don't want to get your hopes up but the reason I thought I miscarried was because I had a full period, with cramps and bleeding.  I took a pregnancy test when I started spotting and it was negative.  I really didn't think anything of it after what I thought was my period until the following week when all of the opk's were blazing positive.  I heard that sometimes that can mean you are pregnant. so I took a million pregnancy tests.  It was too early to see anything on the ultrasounds so becuase of the bleeding everyone thought I just miscarried early.  So...there is no explanation other than I potentially implanted late after my period.  I think my situation may be a little out of the ordinary but who knows.  I am really hoping that we can go through this together.  :-)

I wish I had better news.  I had two ultrasounds this week and the second one showed no progress and seems to have stalled out at 5.6 weeks.  I should be 8 weeks.  So...my doc said I should miscarry within the week.  To be honest, I felt something was off from the beginning.  Anyway, I thought you guys should know.  It looks like I'll be back in the TTC group in the next month or two.  I'm just praying this doesn't drag on for weeks.  :-(
