Confused if I had a miscarriage

Last month I TTC for the first time with my partner and a few days before my period was due, I started getting sore boobs - a symptom I’d never had before. This continued so I took a clear blue test 4 days before my missed period. It was negative but then half an hour later I’d seen it in the bin with two blue lines. So I did another two tests and the same happened - negative at first but then second lines appeared. I had heard about clear blue doing this after the timeframe so didn’t take it as a positive just yet.

Two days before my period was due I started getting really bad cramping at lunch time and then it wasn’t until 3am (more than half a day later) that I had blood which is unusual for me as I usually get period blood within an hour. I also usually have a 28D cycle, not 26. There was also a bit of watery discharge which I’d never usually get. So I made the assumption I had a miscarriage due to all of the symptoms I’d experienced.

Fast forward to this month and the sore boobs appeared again but this time over a week before period was due! I waited until two days before period to take a test and it was negative in the timeframe but yet again provided the second blue line. I used clear blue as an experiment to compare whether it happened again and it did. However, this time my period arrived bang on day 28.

So I am confused, did I have a miscarriage in the first month or are all my symptoms a massive coincidence?! It could be that I was pregnant but then my hormones are still balancing out from the miscarriage and caused sore boobs again this time round.

I know it doesn’t change anything but for peace of mind it helps to know what other people have experienced.

Sorry it would but super hard to know. You technically did not get a positive test.

sre you taking any new supplements to support ttc that could of affected hormones and your cycle?

Thank you for your reply! Yes I started taking prenatal vitamins but only within the second month, so that wouldn’t be the cause for the change in symptoms for the first month where I possibly had a really early miscarriage.

@DaisySydney hmmm tough one! Are you feeling quite stressed about Ttc? Our mind does some weird things !

unfortunately it's just going to be impossible to know . I have not experienced chemical pregnancy before but possibly could have been x
