Hi, I'm new to mumsnet and I've never posted before so I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place but feel like I'm going out of my mind and would love someone elses opinion. Sorry for the long post...
I had a normal period on 30th Sept that lasted 6 days (normal) and then last month on the 27th Oct i had one that started with pink spotting and only lasted 4 days (unusual). As I'm not ttc and it was when i wiuld normally be due i didn't pay much attention to it but looking back at it now it was A LOT lighter than normal so was thinking it could of been implantation bleeding. We dtd quite a few times in between those dates and a few since the last bleed.
Last week i was exhausted and lost my appetite and then on saturday i felt really nauseous and really felt like i was going to be sick... the only other time I've felt like that was when i was expecting my son. Then that evening i was laying on the sofa and i could feel a lot of tugging and pulling sensations around where my uterus is (uterus streching?) and started to think maybe I'm pregnant. This week I've been still been exhausted, wanting to nap all the time, needing to pee constantly, boobs feel a bit bigger although not really sore (nipples maybe a bit more sensative than normal), more of the pulling sensation, a definite rise in the skin just above my pelvic bone (like the very very early beginnings of a bump and already had a child so would begin to show earlier), really low mood last week but this week I've just been happy thinking I'm pregnant (did cry at the john lewis ad but do that every year ahaha) and felt nauseous a couple more times and seem to have super smell. Also have that runny nose thing going (but it is flu season) so all in all definitely some symptoms going on that i don't normally have and I've just been feeling pregnant you know.
I went and brought a pack of lloyds pharmacy cheap tests on tuesday and was over eager on the first one and did it when i didn't really need to pee so it only got a dribble. Dismissed it as negative after a few seconds as when i had my son positive result showed straight away (that was at about 2pm) Went back to the bathroom about 20 minutes later and gave it another look and had a very very faint positive but obv out of the time limit. Waited an hour and did the second test.. this time peed in a cup and dipped and again came up with a faint positive within about 3 minutes so took that as a BFP and even jumped the gun and told my sister but did a clear blue digital with weeks indicator this evening (about 7pm) and it said not pregnant!! What result should i take? So dissappointed after the faint positives. I have another clear blue so was thinking I'd do it first thing in the morning to get the high levels (if there's any there) but if the october bleed was implantation then I'd be around 4 weeks (6 weeks from last period) now so surely it would show up on all tests by now? And if oct was normal period then it would be too early to be feeling anything if I'd conceived since so honestly don't know what to think :/ any opinions would be great! Just really need some reassurance that I'm not going crazy! Haha xxx
Thanks for responding That's what I keep hearing but don't want to set my self up for more disappointment tomorrow by not believing it. This is my faint positive (cracked it out out of plastic cause i was getting frustrated thinking it was just the reflection of light on it tricking my eyes. I don't know if you'll be able to see it in the photo but def there. About a cm up from the control line... ignore my awful nails, they've been sorted since ahaha
Also this is the clear blue one that i got out of the plastic haha again they had more colour to them that shows in the pic but i hear they always have 3 lines even if you're not and it's the shade of blue that matters so i don't know...
I don't think I'm going to be able to resist using this one tomorrow ?? but if i get a BFN again i'll definitely go grab some of those. I don't know why i brought clear blue... I'd already heard they were crap! Haha
It was another BFN this morning but wasn't expecting much different at this point. And all of my symptoms seem to of disappeared overnight so starting to think i imagined the whole thing :/ think I'm going to wait the weekend and if my symptoms come back I'll get first response. It's all so frustrating :/
