Am I pregnant?

I miscarried in October but with that pregnancy I didn’t find out untill I was 12weeks gone ( I was on the pill and not ttc). Myself and my partner are now TTC and my periods now 3 days late.
What symptoms or signs could I look out for if I am pregnant?
What do people think are the best pregnancy tests to use ?

I’m so nervous about testing and it being negative

Clear blue, the one which you can take even if your a few days late.
I took it, became positive instantly xx

So sorry for your loss 💐

First Response Early Response (FRER) are widely regarded as the most sensitive. These will pick up pregnancy up to 6 days before a missed period. You can get them at a good price on amazon smile

Symptom spotting is tricky, as not everyone has symptoms and quite often “early symptoms” are just pre-period symptoms anyway.

For me, however, an excess of cervical mucus and saliva were my biggest clues.

Fingers crossed for you smile

So took a clear blue test and it was inconclusive no control line or anything else. The first response early response is negative. 4 days late and still no period. Still have bad cramps and I think my nipples are darker but not 100% will try again in a few days. Dee7409 have you tested yet ? Xx

Carri90 Mon 23-Apr-18 20:52:43

So after the clear blue came up with nothing I’ve got upstairs and there now a faint positive and a line in the control window. After 10mins earlier there was no control line at all......could I still be pregnant? Or am I getting my hopes up ? Xx

I think that clearblue sounds like a dodgy test tbh id try another in a few days ☺️ Im 5 days late and had a bfn this morning on a clearblue digi so im in limbo too 😩

Carri90 Tue 24-Apr-18 05:32:19

dee7409 Tue 24-Apr-18 08:06:09

Carrie09 ha ha i watched them on youtube...missing first morning urine with salt, sugar, bleach pretty much anything i guess..ha ha...but sadly for me it is a no no this month...AF arrived bright and early this morning...3 days late! not giving up though.

Carri90 Tue 24-Apr-18 16:35:18

Oh no that sucks, I’m 5 days late with no sign. Going to leave it a few days and rest again. Was going to re-test tomo morning but forget to buy another test haha x

Don’t give up, I was told the beginning of September I couldn’t have children after having an mri for something diffrent. They told me they could see something in my womb and that would prevent it. I found out I was pregnant mid October......I was 12-13 weeks. The thing they could see on the mri was my baby i was 6-7 weeks from what the specialist says. ( unfortunately i mc) So there is hope, i hope you get yor bfp soon xxxx

Milly24 Tue 24-Apr-18 17:47:41

Sorry to hear about your MC hun ive had 2 early ones and that was awful enough

You still not had AF? Im 6 days late today 😩

Carri90 Tue 24-Apr-18 18:29:46

Still no AF.... I’ve never gone this long without getting one my cycles are 32 days at the most but mostly are 30 days I’m now on cycle day 37.
It’s the not knowing that’s killing me lol. Hopefully you get your bfp soon xxx
