My boobs have been really sore for about a week, so bad I've bought a three pack of those ugly bras, I've always had tenderness before a period, but only for a day or so, I've also noticed a strange taste in my mouth, not enough to think much about it, until now, I've just read an early sign is a metallic taste, and that's the taste, couldn't put my finger on it before.

Slight twinges like mild period pains and wind.

I still don't want to believe it, I'm 39, this will be my first if I really am, but reading that about the metallic taste kinda made a light come on.

Early pregnancy symptoms REALLY feel like a period coming.....That's rather confusing.

I don't have anyone to tell, my husband is sleeping.

Please don't feel stupid, many, many of us have been there. Be gentle with yourself and do go and talk it over with your GP.

I'm really sorry Pondlily, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you can be pregnant again very soon.

Is there anything your GP or specialists can do to help you? Have you had any investigations or tests?

yellowsubmarine53 Sat 17-Nov-12 17:37:25

Oh, I'm sorry. How sad for you - we were all hoping that you'd have good news.

Take care.

Dillydollydaydream Sat 17-Nov-12 16:12:01

I'm sorry to read your update. You must be so disappointed. Have a nice glass of wine wine and some chocolate.

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 16:09:24

Red blood now after cramping this afternoon (never get cramping with a normal period) I know was pregnant. So many changes and by 39 you really know your normal body and rhythms.

I let myself go there this morning and was so happy. I feel stupid now. And really, really sad.

Pondlily sometimes a negative test will have a faint line on the next day, which can be a sign of a faint positive due to too little of the pregnancy hormone.
I had invisible faint lines for a couple of days before getting a very faint line on a test within the stated time. Tested every day for a couple of weeks after, and watched that little line get darker and darker.
Try not to worry about any light bleeding. Your body can get implantation bleeding, or a 'fake' light period while still pregnant.

Best of luck to you. Keeping my gingers crossed.

TerrorNotSoFrightened Sat 17-Nov-12 13:21:08

I had this brown blood when pg, just when my period would have been due.
Also had two negative tests.

milkymocha Sat 17-Nov-12 13:12:11

I wouldnt give up hope, let us know how this story progresses please Lily, i know you might feel dishearted now but have faith in mother nature smile

Pondlily Sat 17-Nov-12 13:08:18

No, usually light bleeding but definitely red at the start of my period.
