Waiting for second period after dd who was born in January. Normally my periods are really regular, and I know when I ovulate, but this one hasn't arrived yet. I realised yesterday and joked to dh that perhaps dc3 was on the way grin
I'm still breastfeeding and my nipples are really quiet painful during the first 30 seconds or so, which has only started over the last three days. This afternoon I felt like I had period pain, but nothing happened, and tmi but there's quite a lot of cm. I have also started feeling sick for the last three afternoons, same time each day hmm
Tbh I would be thrilled if I was but dd took 6 years to have and we went through IVF etc. I know I need to POAS but we're on holiday abroad with family so I can't just nip off to the chemist. DSIL is desperate for a child and if she were to catch wind of it I think it would really upset her. We're away for another week so thought it might be fun to speculate in the meantime grin
Anyone got any thoughts?!

Can you not sneak to the shop and grab a test to do in a public loo?

Littlemisssunshine75 Fri 26-Dec-14 22:33:42

I might try to send dh out to pick one up, but we're staying just outside a little village in Spain, and each time I go out SIL likes to come too!
Will talk to dh but I think he has his head in the sand grin

Anyone else ever felt like this?!

Mrsgentle2014 Sat 27-Dec-14 10:56:16

My OH has his head in the sand too... "Don't worry, you'll be fine" not at all helpful!

Not actively ttc but not being careful all the time either... Many symptoms and day 32 of my cycle... Although they are super regular at he moment anyway?
Have you managed to get a test yet?

Littlemisssunshine75 Sat 27-Dec-14 11:21:49

Nice to hear from someone in our position! Have you already got dc Mrsgentle? Do you think you will test soon?
I haven't got a test yet, will try to escape this afternoon grin I had bad period pain last night and an achy lower back and totally expected AF to have started this morning, but still no sign confused It would be a complete miracle if I was pg, after obsessing for so many years it feels a bit funny to think I might be and that I hadn't even thought about it until a few days ago!
Would love to hear from anyone else who might've had similar symptoms, and especially would love to know what the outcome was!!

Mrsgentle2014 Sat 27-Dec-14 12:01:32

Newly married and zero children here... OH would find the nearest bridge if I were, I think!
All the same symptoms as you... Nothing happening, and feeling so so nauseous today! Gonna try and grab a test today if I can - let me know your outcome!

Littlemisssunshine75 Sat 27-Dec-14 12:09:58

Congrats on getting married smile How would you feel if you were pg?
I'm feeling more nauseous too today... Think I have to go and get a test for my sanity. Please let me know what your test says too!

Mrsgentle2014 Sat 27-Dec-14 13:03:52

There would be a huge part of me that would be sheer panic and "what the hell do I do now" ... But a part if me that would be excited, much to the OH dismay... I've become crazy lady since getting married!
I will let you know! Xx

Littlemisssunshine75 Sat 27-Dec-14 13:40:10

I've just tested, it was negative... I don't think I mind because it would just be too soon after dd, but I haven't a clue what's going on with my body!!

There's always that panicky feeling first time, would OH really be dismayed, or would he secretly be pleased do you think?!

Mrsgentle2014 Sat 27-Dec-14 13:49:38

Oh littlemiss... It's such an odd feeling isn't it - one of mixed joy and fear...
OH would be dismayed and it may take a good 9 months and plenty of stern words with him from various family members for him to get his head around it... Haven't got out yet, but I will try in a minute! Xx

Mrsgentle2014 Sat 27-Dec-14 14:49:15

Negative... Which I'm gutted about, therefore I must secretly want one when I know I shouldnt.
Guess I'm just poorly and not pregnant?

Littlemisssunshine75 Sat 27-Dec-14 18:16:01

Ah, sorry to hear that Mrsgentle sad I think your gut reaction does say a lot about how you really feel... Is ttc an option? Sounds like your dh needs to get his head around it first though.
On the bright side at least we can both have a much needed glass of wine tonight!

Mrsgentle2014 Sat 27-Dec-14 18:17:27

Most definitely not an option... We shall see what the future brings smile
cheers to a glass of wine!

Littlemisssunshine75 Tue 30-Dec-14 09:03:21

Hi Mrsgentle, just wondering how you're doing? Has your AF started yet? Mine still hasn't... hmm

Mrsgentle2014 Tue 30-Dec-14 13:47:08

Hi! Nope... Nothing happening this end.
Ordered a dominoes yesterday and nearly heaved when it arrived. Some cramping and back pain, really tender boobs and sensitive nips but that's it.
BFN this morning, so I'm not sure what my body is up to?

How about you littlemiss ?

Mrsgentle2014 Tue 30-Dec-14 13:50:07

I've just re read in my exhausted state... You tested negative, I'm so sorry?!
This is another issue - I can't concentrate on anything! Or get my words out properly... Nightmare! My OH actually said to me yesterday "you aren't pregnant, are you?"

Littlemisssunshine75 Tue 30-Dec-14 14:28:10

Your symptoms sound just like mine, what on earth is going on?!
At least if you are pregnant it won't be such a shock to your dh grin
I wish my AF would just arrive now - I thought it had yesterday when I was wearing white trousers... Even provoking the law of Sod isn't working confusedgrin

Mrsgentle2014 Tue 30-Dec-14 14:39:08

Haha provoking the law of sod made me chuckle!
Our bodies are designed to permanently confuses, I feel!
Will you test again , at some point?

Littlemisssunshine75 Tue 30-Dec-14 17:04:53

We fly back on Friday and I have loads of internet cheapies at home so will test again then if still nothing.
How about you? It's just so weird isn't it! At least we're able to grumble to each other about it grin

Mrsgentle2014 Tue 30-Dec-14 17:13:16

Yes definitely!? I've got a load of cheaply ones too... Gonna leave it until maybe the weekend...? So same sort of time as you. Just wish AF would come so I know one way or another, you know?

Littlemisssunshine75 Sat 03-Jan-15 15:05:01

Any news Mrsgentle? Hope all is okay smile Did you test again?
My AF is STILL not here confused I'm definitely not pregnant, so haven't a clue where it is!

MrsG23 Sat 03-Jan-15 15:41:29

Hey! Name change - not to confuse you! smile
No AF... High temperatures, the nausea has REALLY ramped up - feel like I'm on a boat.
Some cramping over new year which was really sore but stopped Thursday and had nothing since. Brown discharge when wiping now for 4 days... But no AF. Not a clue what is happening. At my cousins baby shower, one glass of prosecco and I feel shattered and drunk! I don't fit in any of my bras at the moment, I've had to buy new jeans! sad I feel pregnant ... The longer it goes on with a BFN, the more I'm umming and ahhing about what is happening. But I'm not convinced I'm not pregnant sad

Littlemisssunshine75 Sat 03-Jan-15 19:30:09

Wow, it does sound like you have some serious pregnancy symptoms going on!
I have heard of a couple of cases where people who were pregnant didn't test positive on hpt's - is it worth a trip to your GP perhaps?
What's your dh said?

MrsG23 Sat 03-Jan-15 20:21:33

I kinda feel like the longer it goes on, the more I wanna convince myself that I'm not... You know? Some more brown discharge this evening with no cramping now got 2 days? I'll have an hour of brown discharge and then nothing all day. It's so odd!
My first pregnancy showed up after 8 weeks! I just kinda feel like I'm over reacting if I go to a GP as I'm convinced they will say I'm not pregnant! Lol
I'm working all weekend and haven't got a day off until Friday, but I'm gonna try get a really early appointment Tuesday morning or late app... If nothing settles. sad
DH is so worried - for me and for the situation. He is quite quiet which means he is thinking things over in his head - he doesn't want to be a dad yet. So it's quite scary at the moment.
