I don't know where to start and I'm sure I'm being very silly, just need you all to tell me so!!!
Last week I started getting really sharp pains low down in my abdomen, felt like someone was trying to pull me apart. It wasvery odd but the pains would just come and go. AF was due and I had sore boobs so I figured it was just PMS as I usually get mild cramps before AF. AF should have arrived Friday according to my chart but my temp never dropped and no other signs of AF at all over the weekend.
Next bit is definitely TMI....
On Monday I had some spotting, just brown and only when I went to the loo. Tuesday it seemed like AF had arrived, still very dark and a very light flow just like normal CD1 and the pains became really intense in my stomach and back. I always have painful periods so didnt think too much of it. Except when I got up on Wednesday everything seemed to have stopped. Since then I've had light spotting on and off, again just brown and not enough to mark underwear or anything. Last night I kept going to feel light headed and queasy, a bit like when youve had too much to drink. I still have the pains that I've been having for a week. Today I was OK other than that until about an hour ago and now my stomach will not stop churning.
Is this likely to be some sort of bug? I've never felt like this before and these pains seem to have been going on forever even though I know it's only about 10 days now...
I think it's as much the fact I seem to have only had a one day AF as the fact that i feel rough that's got me a bit worried. Please tell me I'm being stupid and I'll be fine tomorrow...
Tested earlier and BFN, not sure why I let myself hope it would be anything else. Obviously just my body playing tricks. If I'm still not well after the bank hoiday I'll be off to the dr. I am once again gutted. I feel terrible for moaning when I know so many people have suffered loss recently but I'm really struggling with this. I've been struggling with it for almost 3 years now and just seem to get one knock after another.
Today has been hard anyway, I had agreed to go with my mum to take my brothers step children to a breakfast with the easter bunny this morning. Then I had my brother and his fiancee telling me all about their best friends new baby, born on Thursday. Then my brother brings all the children to my house when he was supposed to be coming on his own to look at my bike for me as it won't start. He was 3 hours late which meant I was 3 hours later than I meant to be going swimming and totally forgot that Saturday afternoon is family swim and thats why I always go early because the pool was full of babies and children. I have sobbed pretty much constantly for the last couple of hours, I seem to constantly feel as if my eart is breaking, like there's a piece of me missing. Sorry for the woe is me post im just feeling sorry for myself.

Could it be possible that your pregnant? Have you taken a test. Light spotting could be a little bit of implantation bleeding. Rather than AF.
Hope you get some answers soon x

Is it possible you might be pregnant? Spotting could be implantation etc? Symptoms all sound very BFP but it is of course always hard to split between BFP and AF!
If there is a possibility I would personally do a test...if only for peace of mind xx

WTS, I'd take a test to see if you're pg or not - spotting could well be implantation. x

It is very possible, is it bad that the thought hadnt even crossed my mind? When I though AF had arrived on Tuesday I figured it was just another month where I'd not been successful.
Thank you ladies, I'm definitely going to have to do a test now, if only to rule it out (when did I turn into such a pessimist???) I'm staying with my mum and dad at the moment but I have tests at home so will have to make sure I pop back there tomorrow.
It's going to be really difficult not getting my hopes up... Will need double slaps tomorrow!!!!!
