I was 4 days late on my cycle then I had very light discharge that one time then next day I had really dark red and brown for 3 days spotting because didn't fill a panty liner each day. one day after that I had spotting of light brown and gush of clear discharge for two weeks. I took hcg blood test but my level was 2 and my doctor wont take me in until it is a clear 5 or more. I been sick and gained weight but last week I lost it all (4 lbs.) my hpt was a faint line and a dark line that 3 day after my cycle was due. In my previous pregnancies I could not tell until I was almost 3 months. but then again I wasn't paying any of attention either. Can I still be pregnant? I am going to take another test in another week to see if hcg level rised.

If you had lines on HPT then it's pretty safe to say you were pregnant. Take another test tomorrow to see if you still are.

I was nauseated, could smell anything, hungry all the time, headaches and waking up with hot flashes during the night or completely wet up with sweat when it was cold in the house I was and still is hot as heck. when I got negative today I am very disappointed but again wondering why I even have any hcg in my blood could I have had a early m/c? I'm scared can anyone relate or help me out?

minafranklin1 Tue 13-Sep-16 19:29:43

so when you say were does this mean I had a m/c?

OrianaBanana Tue 13-Sep-16 19:33:48

It's possible you had an early m/c or chemical pregnancy - try testing again in a few days.

minafranklin1 Tue 13-Sep-16 19:41:50

how sad, okay I will wait in a few days. so if a m/c how long will I have light brown charge and soreness in my pelvic area?

OrianaBanana Tue 13-Sep-16 19:44:56

Not sure I'm afraid - everyone is different. One thing I would say is that my early miscarriage caused lots of bright red bleeding even at 4-5 weeks so it's not completely certain you've had one yet. flowers

I been also stressed; my partner said firmly he didn't want any more children...not like we any thing to prevent getting another but pull out...lol. All jokes aside I was so scared I think I made myself even more sick. I told him this morning I may have had m/c and he surprised me by asking how far along I was and why didn't I tell him. I swore he was going to be firm and demand a abortion. Again I was trying to find out before it was to late to decide. I usually don't show fully on htp until im 9-12 weeks

OrianaBanana Tue 13-Sep-16 19:47:59

I guess you'll just need to wait a little bit longer to be sure... and tbh if your partner doesn't want another child he's going to have to be more careful with protection than using withdrawal!

minafranklin1 Tue 13-Sep-16 20:03:37

Thank you I will check back in a few days.

OrianaBanana Fri 16-Sep-16 10:58:27

How are you mina?

minafranklin1 Fri 16-Sep-16 16:11:25

Hello thanks for checking back with me. I totally lost appetite and been down. My nurse said the reason for 2 on hcg was because I most likely had MC. I and my boyfriend haven't talked just let one another heal. But what I can't understand why I didn't have any cramps and the spotting not bleeding. I been having real bad cramping but I think because I have not literally have a full meal since Saturday 9/10/2016. I am glad my I go a appetite but now I have funds that have made it so I bowl of cereal is my dinner and hungry is my other meal. Perfect time to get broke and depressed. But I had for last two days I was sore and cramping. but no blood. Breast still tingling and very hot. I hate I don't know what's going on. I wait for my cycle at the end of this and I don't think I want to take another HPT again, its an emotional wave for me.

OrianaBanana Fri 16-Sep-16 16:15:21

I'm sorry mina, sounds horrible. Have you anyone close who can give you a decent meal? Sounds like what you need most urgently flowers

let me edit that previous post:

No, I have my other two kids, 7 and 8 that I give the food to. And most likely when you have kids people tend to look the other way when you ask for help. But I can understand, its my home and I need to take care of it. I spent a lot of money on those HTPs.... I took about 8 and none were under 16.00. Well anyways, my last and next check are for rent and bills, so just as soon as I get it, its gone. I will get through this, but I never thought the MC would hurt so much. I guess if I left it at HPT and not got the blood test I would have not known I was.

minafranklin1 Fri 16-Sep-16 16:27:43

I don't even know when I ovulate to even start trying again. Well at least using my pull out process around my time, lol. I know one thing for sure, my partner is OK if it happens. So that puts a big pressure of worrying about his response to it. How did I gain 5 pounds in 3 weeks and lose 5 in 3 days (lost appetite food, sweets all of it). I am usually hungry morning noon and late night. I will keep trying, next month my birth day is and I know I will be trying, I just don't know when im ovulating.

Have u had your b12 levels checked? I'm no doctor but very similar happened to me last month. I had bloods done and it turned out I had low b12 which can cause a chemical pregnancy. So for the next cycle I religiously had my b12. I'm now just under 4 weeks pregnant and have really good hcg levels. Maybe it's worth checking yours to rule it out

I don't want to be unkind, but planning a pregnancy when you can't afford to feed yourself is massively irresponsible and grossly unfair to your existing children. Why don't you wait until your circumstances are more stable?

I took my first HPT a couple of days before I was technically due on my period - I had slightly longer cycles and tested on day 28 - which showed a negative result. I didn't come on the day I should have done and tested again and the line was very faint. I tested the following morning again (1st urine of the day) and it was slightly stronger and then done a clear blue digital which confirmed 1-2 weeks on the screen! It sounds to me like you're early in pregnancy - Congratulations!

Strawberrimoon Sat 17-Sep-16 11:40:46

Also I'd like to add that I had no symptoms of pregnancy at all apart from the odd nausea - which was usually in the evening! Not once was i sick. I'm now 18 weeks, with my 1st pregnancy. I'm an early pregnancy nurse so I was very anxious throughout my first trimester as I knew too much about m/c etc.

Strawberrimoon Sat 17-Sep-16 11:43:05

I've just read through all of this thread - sorry should have done so before.

Tiffany101 Sat 17-Sep-16 17:56:26

It seems to me that you are pregnant. I suggest you to take a test again. Hope it will come positive.
