Hello girls !!

I was wondering for some Advice trying to conceive !
My periods are little irregular but used CBlue ovulation sticks and said I was ovulating last Thursday , I also use a app to track to which said around the same time between Thursday-Sunday best days , since yesterday I started to get slight cramps but didn’t know if I was over thinking it by just hoping ! but today there a lot stronger ! like I feel like I’m going to have a. Period , I’m not due for my period until the 9th! I’m also so so bloated but my belly feels diffrenrent and my nipples are tingly but my boobs arnt sore ! Could I be pregnant ?! I’m constantly thinking about it so I don’t know if I could be or I’m just hoping to much! Thanks for your help!

Hi @Abigail24!

Your symptoms sound exactly like mine in the run up to and during OV. I would wait until you are due your period and test then smile

The cramping may well have been the time that you did OV. I always get cramping around the time I OV.

Good luck!

When would you say the earliest I can test to get an accurate result ?!

@Abigail24 yeah the symptoms before a period are so similar to early pregnancy it’s so cruel! The most accurate you’ll get is when you do a test on the day or anytime after your period is due . But if you really can’t wait then do one on the 6-7th November but keep in mind that it might not be accurate if you haven’t got enough hormone on your wee at that time if you’re very early pregnancy xx

@Abigail24 I know it's the hardest thing to do - but I would wait as long as you possibly can to test. I find that the disappointment of a BFN and then the hope of maybe still getting a BFP is awful when you test too early.

Although they say the first response early response tests can get a positive 6 days before AF!

Yeah! I think I'm am going to have to just wait ! So I know for sure !! I'm just trying to think to myself I'm not so I don't get my hopes up lol!

Update !
So I got constant cramps not bad for a week ! then what I thought came on my period on the 9th when expecting but has just been brown pink and been light ! Not a lot at all! Only mainly when I wipe and a little bit in a pad ! My nipples are still tingly now and then , they feel heavier this evening and there soo veiny all of a sudden and my nipples to me are defiantly darker with a. Few spots on the areola which I don't think was there before but I done a test this morning and it was negative ?! Yet I can't stop thinking that I'm pregnant I really don't know !

@Abigail24 I don’t think it could be implantation bleeding because that usually happens slightly after ovulation not usually when your period is due but I’m probably wrong ? Test again tomorrow or Friday - good luck ! Do your nipples look darker or bigger ?

Abigail24 Wed 13-Nov-19 10:17:27

Yes they are , I'm so confused Would have rather just have a full. Blown period atleast I could have gotten over it and just tried again:/ I'm now worrying something is wrong xxx

Been a few months since posting

I fell pregnant in January but ended up being ectopic pregnancy and had to have my left tube removed sad

I have PCOS aswell as now only 1 tube

I haven't had a period since the breakthrough bleed ! I done an ovulation test and got my smiley face Sunday / Monday , but now I'm getting period like cramps do you think it could be a sign I'm pregnant or is it to early for implantation and could very well be my period ? Last time I didn't know I was pregnant as I was actually bleeding the whole time ! So wasn't until I had a dream
I was pregnant I done the test and went to the Docters to say I had a positive test with bleeding for weeks that they then scanned there and then and rushed me into surgery ! So I honestly I'm so confused !!!!!
I really felt so hopefully Monday when I finally got a positive ovulation test and now think that I'm never going to get the chance to be a mum sad

Thanks for reading
