Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

hello, just after some advice. I am currently 4 days late, i have regular periods only being late 2 other times and both times there were reasons as to why i was late. so ive been having strange cramps which dont feel like period pains more like a pressure pulling feeling if that makes sense, and also ive had lower back pain and my breasts have been a little tender but no more than usual before af is due! so ive been checkin my cervix each morning and this morning when i checked there was a little blood, not alot though. So now im going crazy thinking af is coming im too scared to take a preg test. Is this normal and could this be early pregnancy symptoms or is af about to make an appearance?

My first preg symptom was a pulling tugging in my uterus so sounds promising. I could never guage on my periods because i was regular as clockwork and then as soon as we started trying i was all over the place, stress does strange things to our bodies! the only way to know for sure is to take a test. Or wait a few days and see if you get a bleed. I had a light bleed at 4 weeks preg so just because you have a little blood, it doesnt mean you are out for this month yet. Fingers crossed for you and keep us posted xx

Awwww sunshine hun, I know the feeling Don't give up chick . . . Our bodies can be cruel sometimes, I have noticed that I have been getting pregnancy symptoms every month for at least a week or week and a half and then AF turned up - every month for the last 3 months!!! Just have a good cry, let it all out - it will help. I had a good go at crying a couple of months ago and went on for at least 4 hours - non stop. It helped thou . . .
Chin up chick and like you say - onwards and upwards!!!

I was the same - first cycle with ov this time, even my doctor said to test for pregnancy because I was having so many symptoms consistent with it. Alas, not.
Cry, cry and cry some more. Have a hot Ribena, watch a film you love, cuddle a teddy you adore (needs must!) and then metaphorically shake yourself, smile and get back on it (with a cheeky grin, because, to be fair, we're probably getting a hell of a lot more sex than most people in the country right now )
And we're all here for you xxx
