I had a chemical pregnancy in January, which oddly I'm pleased about as at least I know we can conceive.
Pretty sure I don't ovulate from one side. So every other month I'm hopeful.
AF is due in 2 days. I'm usually bang on time.
I've had really bad gas the last 2 days, been so tired. Today I've got brown discharge.
No cramps.
I do usually get a bit of brown discharge before AF but it turns into a proper period relatively quickly, and I usually have gut ache.
When I had the chemical pregnancy, I just knew I was pregnant. Don't ask me how, I just knew. But after 3 days of cramping way too early for AF I got a positive test. Then carried on cramping for 3 more days and had a heavy period right on time still.
This time I don't feel different.
Really gassy, starving hungry and tired. But all could be af I guess.

I'm on here as I have no one else to discuss with. I'm sick of hearing 'are you pregnant yet?' 'When are you having a baby?'
I'm 35 soon and this will be my first. I've always had a fear of not being able to have a baby.
My husband is 9 years younger than me and he's so desperate for a baby, prob more than me.
I've been charting and taking OPK's for 8months now, ovulate day 14/15 each time.
Time to get up the docs now I guess.
Feeling low today. Sorry fir the 'down post'

Keep positive everyone. This waiting game sucks.

It's pretty normal the way you're feeling, unfortunately. It's very normal for it to take a year or more. I'm still waiting for my bfp two years on...

The suggestion is to wait a year to see your gp if under 35, 6 months of over.

I had a chemical pregnancy a year ago and that reset my clock according to one of the gps at my practice. I'm 34 now so I understand your age concerns as well.

Don't take any crap once it's been a year and push for tests, despite the chemical.

My fertility consultant says chemicals 'don't count' as conception, so push for tests in about 4 months.

So I had a couple of days of light brownish discharge, one fairly normal day of bleeding, then it was like i was never 'on' stopped really abruptly.
The night after that, bd, bled a little and had more brown discharge which is super unusual for me.
We're now another 2 days on of being back to normal and I have mild cramps and occ pain down the front of my left leg. I'm super tired. Came home from work at 5:30 and have been in bed since.. all not normal for me.
Long shot... as I know it's highly unlikely but what are the chances?? Has anyone else ever experienced this and actually been pregnant?

Take a test?

Have you taken a test?

Not yet 🤦🏻‍♀️
I've yet to go buy one. I stopped keeping one in the drawer as I feel I'm just unnecessarily using them.
I'll try and get one today. I'll let you know.
Be very very shocked if I am!

From what I was told it’s unlikely that implantation bleeding is even noticed. It would be light and normally only show on the tissue when wiping. Light and streaky pink or pale brown. It wouldn’t last long and never be enough to have a pad or tampon. All of that info come from my GP a couple of years ago x
