Any idea/ experience of this??

Discussion in 'Pregnancy' started by Houstonwehaveaproblem, May 1, 2011.

  1. Hey all
    Last month we decided to start ttc (yay!! We deliberated for ages). My period was due yesterday and I'm normally regular, I have had all the normal symptoms pre period; spotting, period pains, sore boobs etc. Except I still don't have my period...I don't feel pregnant and haven't had any symptoms. Could I be pregnant and be spotting every day? It's hardly anything and doesn't warrant sanitary towels or anything.... I'm a bit worried that I could be pregnant but am spotting, or something else is up as period hasn't arrived. Any advice??!!
  2. i found asda's own to be sensitive and the were £3.60 for 2.... good luck x
  3. Cheers for the advice, going to head to the shops tomorrow...not been on the pill for a couple of years now and my periods have been regular for about a year now, I reckon it ll be nothing but it is weird that it's all gone a bit different the first month we try. Will keep you posted :)

    This happened to me (apart from the spotting)- I was waiting for my period to show up for over a week, having period pains and sore boobs; my baby is now three months old... [​IMG]

    I had all that too, minus the spotting, in both my pregnancies. This one was really bad, i had cramps, spots (which i never get), couldn't sleep etc. I was convinced I was going to get my period, and then i did a test when it was 2 days late and it was negative, despite claiming to work up to 4 days before a missed period! I guess i must've ovulated really late? Which might explain why my due date was on Saturday and I am still waiting for my baby to make an entrance [​IMG]
    Some people do have spotting this early on in pregnancy though. I had bleeding early on, like 5-6 weeks, and when i had an early scan the sonographer said it could just be implantation bleeding.
  7. Houston - any luck? Have you tested yet?
  8. Tested about an hour ago....and I'm pregnant!!!!!! And utterly shell shocked! Thanks for all the replies. Im now worrying (as that is what I do best!) about the spotting and whether I shouldnt get too excited. And what to do now...eeek! I cant believe it! xx

    Congratulations Houston! Try not to worry about the spotting - if you look on the spring/summer/autumn/winter baby threads, there are loads of people who have early spotitng and are fine. It's fairly normal. I fell first month too, and was absoutely flabbergasted, having convinced myself that I was going to have problems! Enjoy, and huge congratulations!xx
  10. congrats! i had bleeding on and off throughout my pregnancy, and i had brown spotting too. LO is very definitely here and healthy!
    what happens now will be an anti-climax. you'll see your GP who'll say "congrats, take folic acid, go away and wait for a midwife's appointment to come through for when you're 9-10 weeks pregnant" and that'll be that for another 5 weeks!!
  11. Huge congratulations! x
  12. Cheers! Slightly random question, but I've just rung up the doctors to
    make an appointment and they asked if it was something routine - I said yes as I was standing in my classroom with other members of staff there - but now I wonder should I have said no and got an appointment with someone else? Does it matter?
    I would also like to run around my school building and scream about it, but better not hey :)

    Yep, it's routine - guess they just want to know if it's emergency, or needs a specialist. I was really disappointed by my docs appt though, as I know most others have been, so don't expect much! Does make it real to tell someone though!
