Hi everyone, I wonder if you can help me work out if I'm just overthinking things or if something isn't quite right.
I recently had what I thought was a positive test...followed by numerous unclear/negative tests. AF was 5 days late and started with very light but very watery bleeding only on tissue. Then it started more heavily (now forgive me...TMI coming up!!) and usually it's quite dark red with lots of clumps in it. This time it's bright red with no clumps at all?? For the last week I've been on the verge of tears everyday (finally couldn't hold it together anymore and burst into tears tonight over the most trivial thing). Still feel bloated and a bit sicky (this is unusual once AF has started) lots of sick burps confused Am I just experiencing a backlash of false hopes? Or is there something here I should be worried about? I'm just concerned because it's so unlike me to be SO teary and temperamental. My OH and I have been bickering so much because I'm just so stroppy and short tempered at the moment!

Any advice or has anyone experienced something like this? We only started ttc 2 months ago so I'm new to all of this! smile thanks x

I'm sorry to say I had similar symptoms when I miscarried at 6 weeks. Do you have an early pregnancy unit locally where you could get scanned? flowers

Ermmm I'm not sure? I could go to the local walk in doctors? I'm just worried that all of this is in my head? X

I don't think they will see it that way with the positive test and then bleeding. When it happened to me earlier this year I called 111 to say I'd got a positive test a few weeks before and then bleeding & stomach cramps. They referred me to my local EPU for a scan which confirmed I was miscarrying. The hormones really mess with your emotions, so I know how you feel!

The trouble is where I had the first test that I and others were sure was positive and then others that were negative or not clear, I know it sounds silly I just don't want to waste anyone's time if it's nothing? X

Might give them a call tomorrow and see what they suggest. Thank you smile

It's best to be safe than sorry. flowers

Could be a chemical pregnancy too. Yes EPU will see you if you want. Or you can just wait for your next period. Unless you're bleeding heavily or experiencing pain there is no danger to you so it's whether you want it confirmed or not really.

I think you have just been under a lot of stress and continuing to think about this cycle will keep making things worse, including going to the GP or EPU.

Best just to focus on your new cycle and new chances of conceiving in a mere 10 days or so smile

Haveacupoftea do you know what I think you're right. I'm going to phone the doctors tomorrow and not go but just speak to them for piece of mind but I think you're totally right. I think I've been overthinking it and now it could just be time to move onto the next cycle. The trouble is I just can't shake the feeling that something just doesn't feel right. confused but I am looking forward to a new cycle and I can definitely say I have learnt a lot from this one though!
