Trying to conceive

Have any of you experienced anything like this? AF arrived yesterday, it was very heavy all day and this morning but it stopped by the afternoon and there is hardly any blood now. Normally I bleed for 4-5 days so this is very odd. I'm also feeling pretty sick and dizzy?
What is going on?

Hiya judy , it could be implantation , not wanting to get your hopes up , I had something similair 2nd af after mc- only lasted 2 n half days but then followed by couple days of spotting , hope it is implantation , how was your temp this morning hun ? x x
03/08/2013 at 08:46
I was gonna get a test and see cos this is very unusual. On thursday I filled 3 pads (sorry TMI), one Friday morning and then the bleeding tapered off. My temp yesterday was 36.21 and this morning it was 36.27. What do you think?

Hiya, I'm not sure but I think it's a good sign , what is your cover line ? what was it before (af) if that was what it was , I've only just started charting so not quite sure of all of it yet ,how have your periods been since mc ? mine have been anything but normal, always used to be 27 days bang on but since then I don't really know where I am , you'd think after 30 years of periods I would know my own body , but it seems I have no idea !! V frustrating !! took soy this month to try n bring some kind of order n hopefully a stronger ov , when was your af due ? just remembered my neighbour wanted to surprise her dh with a pos hpt on christmas morning - did a test - neg , started 'af ' next day , missed next af, when she went for her scan was 4 weeks further than she thought , so the christmas af wasn't at all n was implantation bleed , was roughly same amount n duration as normal so in a nutshell you could well be pregnant hun , just won't know for a bit longer , hope you are, keeping everything crossed for you x x x

Hope this is it for u but my last period was weird too, about 36 hours long and very dark brown. Thought it was implantation but it wasn't as fell pg that cycle x
03/08/2013 at 14:06
Hoping that's the case for me too, last was 22 day cycle , last time had 2 periods in 1 month was when we got our bfp , how are you doing LH , hope you're feeling better x x

Im good ta baby is wriggling around didn't think id feel it so early but it's nice. Do t feel sick no more which is a bonus. 4 weeks and we should know the flavour, can't wait x
03/08/2013 at 15:23
That's fab hun , not long to wait , I felt my 2nd and subsequent ones early, reassuring isn't it , are you hoping team blue this time ? x x
03/08/2013 at 15:56

Evemum24, I bought some cheap preg tests and tested this afternoon - BFN. Oh well, I will just have to wait and see AF almost stopped but still cramping a bit. My periods have been all over the place. My cycles used to be bang on 26 days, the first one after the mc was 32 days long, the one last month was 35 days long and af arrived this month on CD35. Boooo - I thought we've done it this month The week before af is very strange, I keep getting pregnancy symptoms I never used to get. All I used to get before the MC was sore boobs. Now my boobs are not sore at all (nipples are tender sometimes but only for 2-3 dyas), I feel very sick and tired for at least a week before af and I raise my hopes every month cos I keep thinking I'm pregnant. I've only just started charting so cannot compare my teperatures, but will keep an eye on them this month and see what happens. I'm still a bit nauseous so I will test again next week - never know, it could have been implantation Have you tried Angus Castus? Me and my partner started taking Maca, it should give you energy but also makes the little soldiers swim faster - aparently
LH86, sounds cute that you can feel your baby's movements already and sorry to hear that your daughter is a nightmare I was a nightmare child to be honest - don't know how my mum put up with me. Bless her, I feel bad - I was a bad tempered little girl
03/08/2013 at 19:11
I was vile so I'm paying for it now lol. Yeah definitely worth testing again in a week or so, I did several after my weird period x

Hi Evemum24 and LH86
LH86, how are you chick? I meant to ask how your interview went? All ok?
I'm bloody sick of this ttc lark, af stopped on saturday so it only lasted 2 days including the spotting. I still feel extremely emotional, which is not normal! Started charting thou and my graph looks ok so far with a dip this morning but I took my temperature an hour earlier than usual - not sure if this will make a difference.
How are you Evemum24? Have you tried this steam bath you guys were talking about on the Testing Testing BFP thread?
Hope all is well with you girls
Love J xx

Keeping fx for you chick yeah think it went well just waiting to hear. Got another at boots for an Xmas job on weds and another for housekeeper at the neonatal unit next weds not sure about my chances with that tho as will need to pass a medical and will have to tell them bout the baby as the antenatal clinic is in the same building and I've got 2 scans there next month lol x
05/08/2013 at 09:49
Sounds good I hope you get at least one of those jobs hun, FC xxx
05/08/2013 at 10:04
Hi girls , good luck with the jobs lh, the neonatal would be interesting , good luck with it, let us know how you get on x x
Glad you're still charting judy, makes things abit easier to understand doesn't it , I just went back over my opks from last month n was going to put the pos in for 15th July, but thought I'd done it wrong , n it was too early (8dpo) but going by all the other symptoms was probably ov , ...n now I have put it in it says it prob was too ! not sure if you're supposed to alter them after , never mind , so confusing at times , hope you're feeling ok honey , try n stay positive , easier some days than others isn't it , yes , tried the steam - very interesting , reminds me of teenage days trying to steam to get rid of spots, seem to have an outbreak of them again atm , maybe I should try the other end aswell will you test again in a few days ? x x
05/08/2013 at 13:42
Talking about the outbreak of spots - I've got the same problem at the moment I will do another test at the weekend and if it is negative then I'll just assume that it was proper af this month. I'm only using the 'Home Bargains' cheepies because I do not want to waste my CB Digitals. I wasted many of them a couple of months ago and it was costing me a fortune (spent over £50 in a month on preg tests). I have been feeling very emotional for days now, I'm sick of feeling emotional now, but cannot help it.
How are you getting on with ttc? I know what you mean about the data and the charts - it takes some time to get used to them. My temps dropped this morning from 36.28 yesterday morning to 35.97 this monring - looks like a big drop on the chart. I'm only on CD5 thou so it will not be ovulation time yet. My cycle days are in sinc with the days / dates this month so it's easy for me to identify what CD I'm on ha ha
When is your AF due this month?
05/08/2013 at 19:56
Hi hun , some days are harder than others aren't they , I would still test in a few days , - could be implantation dip ? been reading up on them in ff , apparently more common in pregnancy charts than non pregnant charts , n if not it isn't long til you may have next oppurtunity to test , the weeks seem to go quite fast when they're in 2 week chunks , waiting to ov in the nexy few days , cd 9 today ,dh had an unexpected day off work so made the most of it still neg on opk though, didn't sleep at all well last night so not sure of temp this morning, keep on trying but have got a good feeling for is all this month, hope it's right n we both get our bfps , as they say- the best cure for miscarriage is precnancy , was it you who said that recently aswell ? x x
06/08/2013 at 09:02
It wasn't me who said it, but I fully agree with that statement. I never had implantation with my pregnancy in Feb so don't know much about that subject. My temp went up slightly this morning 36.06 as opposed to 35.97 yesterday. I guess I will just have to wait and see. Still got this funny tingly feeling down there, not cramping just tingling. Have you experienced that?
Good news about your DH having a day off I also had a little boogie last night, only CD5 thou. When I got preg in Feb, we actualy DTD every other day and when I got a smiley face we DTD twice a day for 3 days.
It is good to hear that you've got a good feeling about it all. I'm feeling very positive today, which is pretty surprising ha ha
