Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

i am new to all of this and was wondering if anyone could offer any advice please.
i have been having unprotected sex with my partner for the past month. 17/18 July 26/27 July and 31 and 1 August.
I had my last period started on the 12 July and lasted 5 days, my cycle usually last 30-33 days.
I started to have some feelings that I may be pregnant but could have all been in my head (sore boobs, bloated, constant headaches etc) I was initially due on this coming weekend, however, I started with a brown discharge on Sunday (9aug) night, stopped on Monday then on Tuesday I had almost orange/ red blood with some clots and cramps (sorry if TMI) I assumed this was just AF coming early however it just stopped again yday. Then today when I wipe it has been pink. This is very unusual for me I usually just have a heavy flow to begin with. Even though I had the cramps it didn't feel like a normal AF otherwise - no massive breakout in spots, no sweet cravings (that's how I usually know she's coming!)
Additionally since Tuesday I have been constantly been needing to pee (inc middle of the night)
I did a preg test this afternoon which was negative so I am just wondering what could be going on! Do you think it could be a chemical pregnancy?
Thansk for any help in advance and good luck to you all who are TTC!xx

ive just had two chemical pregnancies a few months apart the last one two weeks ago you tend to get a positive test result still. I got a positive superdrug, early response and clear blue but within 4 days the bleeding started light spotting for one day then 3 days fairly heavy days , no cramps just normal AF then two days just light and normal. I tested day AF was due. If you've already started to bleed maybe the hcg level has dropped down below the sensitivity of the tests? Superdrug, first response are 10 miu whereas clear blue is 25miu. I got bloods done and hcg was only 19 so I knew I would sadly mc. Do a sensitive test maybe in a couple of days maybe. Hope you are ok x

Thank you for your reply and I am sorry to hear about your 2 chemical pregnancies. I hope you're okay! i think I will go to super drug tomorrow and try one of theirs in a couple of days.
I'm at the docs tomorrow so I am going to see what they say - I probably just got my hopes up with implantation bleeding! Just AF was a little unusual this month!x

I think we all get our hopes up symptom spotting!! I'm ok I've got 3 healthy children we just fancied a fourth a bit last minute now I keep mc driving me mad!! Worth mentioning to GP if your their. Chemical pgs are so common you don't realise until it happens then look into it!
Good luck x

Thank you - I will keep you posted! I have read about other people and their IB and I think that's what got my hopes up more plus I would have been ovulating around the time we did the deed.
3 wow - hopefully you will get your fourth soon. This would be my first, we're not consciously trying but if it happens we will be happy!
I will keep my fingers crossed for you x

Hi im sorry am new to this i was hoping someone could help me please..i had sex with my husband about 21 days ago we have been trying for baby. However on the 10th august i started spotting when my periods are not due for another 8 days. I am currently spotting but pad is not required i took a test about 1 and half week ago it was negative. But im confused as i have some symptoms of pregnancy sore breast.. pain in back. I just ate something and 20 min later it felt like a baby vomit sorry for the description in my mouth. Could i be pregnant?

Absolutely! If period is due in 8 days give it 4 more days then do a first response test or superdrug own brand test as they are the most sensitive good luck x

OK so I did another test this morning and I have got a very faint positive. I have read online that they are notorious for false positives so I am not getting my hopes up.
I am going to test again in a few days - I will let you know!x

Oh sorry I forgot to add it was a sainsburys one x

I believe you cannot get a false positive on a test!! A line is always positive however faint!! A clear blue digital will give you a definite answer But don't do that until you are at least one day past AF due. If you want to know for sure use first response they are great it's sounds to me like congrats are in order!!

I'm so apprehensive! My sore boobs seem to have faded although I am still peeing a lot and I have horrendous headaches!
I suppose time will tell x
