strange bleeding and pregnancy symptoms

ok...i posted a couple weeks ago about wondering if i am pregnant..well..i had a slight bleed for one day....that is what set me off thinking i may be pregnant (this would be unplanned) ....it stopped very abruptly..only last a few hours, if even that

a week later, around the time my period would have started.....i started to spot..then it was kind of between a medium/heavy flow of red blood with some medium sized clots....so i thought this was my period of course..i just thought it was a weird one since nothing about it has seemed "normal" to me....my period usually lasts about 4 days and is never a week long ! ...and now it has been a week long...it sort of stopped a little in the middle of the week and i was just spotting, but still red just only when i wiped....then it got just a tad bit heavier, but still no need for a pad or anything like that......the blood looks like it is mixed with a clear slimy discharge which i have never seen with a period....and normally i will start with brown spotting and end with brown spotting...and it has been red the entire time, no odor

Have you had any bleeding since the last time? LOL! @ your pimple- poor thing, those pimples hurt! All of the symptoms you mentioned sound in need promising; especially the fatigue. I know you are going to the gyno next Wednesday, have you taken a HPT? Keep us posted, I'm interested to see the outcome on Wednesday. :)

hi :) ...thanks you for your response !

i thought the bleeding ended yesterday..but there was a little more earlier today..more reddish brown than the red it was..so i am thinking the bleeding is going to end..maybe not, just have to wait and see

Your mind is going to make you crazy! Try to keep yourself occupied until next Wednesday :smileywink: If not you will loose it and be in the boat with the rest of us. lol :smileyvery-happy: Blood tests from my knowledge vary by dr office. My old dr office had the blood lab right next door so all I had to do was walk across the parking lot, but that dr decided to retire on me, what was he thinking?!? My dr office now they send things in and it usually takes up to a week.

If you don't mind me asking what are your normal back problems? I have a mild case of scoliosis and yesterday and today my lower back has been having a very dull ache. Which isn't too uncommon for me but consistent for 2 days is odd.

Besides the fatigue, strange bleeding and back pain, any other symptoms? I have the lower back pain, bloated, excessive cm which I read on justmommies.com about Leukorrhea and that is right up my alley with what I'm experiencing. I read that and my mouth about dropped and I had to pick it up off of my desk.

well, my normal back problems are just occasional pain due to my large gozangas ..they are no good for your back or shoulders..never understood the fascination with large breasts..i'd be happy if mine were less than half their size !!

the pain i am having now is really low in my back, practically feels like it is on either side of my tailbone...plus my hips are aching a lot too....but all of this is only happening at night since it started..it has been very hard to get comfortable and i've been using ice packs every night on my neck and lower back..plus i have had a nagging headache accompanying all of this..the headache last through day and night for the past few days, but today i don't feel it anymore

other symptoms i have are being constipated ! ..the only time i have Ever been constipated was when i was on a certain medication..and it was terrible ! ..this time it isn't as bad, but not too comfortable either :smileytongue:

i also have been getting slightly nauseous if i make too sudden of a movement, or a lot of fast movement...does not make me feel well at all. i also haven't felt like eating...not because i feel any strong aversion to anything or even get nauseous because of food..i just don't feel like eating..totally not normal for me. all i have really felt like eating has been toast, soup, oranges or limeade..yogurt has been giving me indigestion too, which is unusual..could be anything though... last week there was a day that i got very lightheaded/dizzy.....but that used to be a common thing for me anyway..so it could be totally unrelated.

other things i have noticed but am not sure if related are very, incredibly visible veins..actually pretty gross looking, especially when getting out of a hot bath/shower D: ..horrible !! i noticed a few days ago that i can see little red lines under my skin on my chest, and found a spider vein under one of my boobs :O ..never had one of those before.......last night i noticed my right hand has a swollen part, between my index and middle knuckles..which i am concerned about bc it could have to do with my blood pressure..which is usually normal and has been for awhile...so that does have me worried :/ ......geez..look at all this..i will feel like such a dumdum when i get a negative result :O..i will never be able to trust my body again....

....the very first unusual thing i noticed, even before the bleeding, were HOT FLASHES ..so sweaty, just would not stop..especially when out and about..was pretty pointless even putting makeup on (the sweating almost always started while getting dressed and putting my makeup on...so annoying !...) i thought nothing of it til later on in the month

Actually, im.glad to know someone else can relaté to this. I was supposed to start clomid this cycle but missed my appointment because of a grand mal seizure so i charted this cycle anyway and continued my supplements until i can get in to my dr in march. We have been ttc quite some time now so when i had a vivid dream i shook.it off then hot flashes, tingling breasts, etc. and theese symptoms it caught my.attention. I noticed spotting around temp dips and then a delayed period which.was pink spotting, then lt red spotting, then light brown spotting for 8 days. My temps remained high as i would have considered it an odd period. 1 frer bfn, 2 frer disappearimg very faint positives so bfn? 2 cvs very faint but visible evap? Lines? So thats enough testing for now. It gets expensive.

i hope you recovered well from that seizure :( !!

i still haven't found out for sure..going to this place called "any lab test" to get a blood test done since my doctor wouldn't give me a referral (well...he's no longer my doctor)

i REALLY do not want to be pregnant...i mean..i have wanted it for so long, we tried for around 2 years and stopped..and right now is possibly the worst time for me to be pregnant.....i feel pretty dumb not having used any form of birth control :P ....that will certainly change if i find out i m not.

so...to everyone on here who clearly wants to be pregnant...i hope that you are, and i am not ! I will send out all kinds of positive pregnancy juju..and if you could be so generous to send me some BFN juju !! ......i would feel pretty terrible if i am, and someone else who really wants it right now isn't :/

good luck to you !

what was your dream about ?

before i started thinking i may be pregnant..before any of the strange bleeding ...i had a dream that was in first person..i was walking through an incredibly vibrant, colorful garden....all of the flowers seems to be brighter and more perfect than any flower i've ever seen....kind of made me think of the garden Alice walks into........then...several weeks later after all this has happened i start reading about pregnancy dreams and such..and i come to find out that one of the most common early pregnancy dream, occuring even before pregnancy is suspected, are dreams about flowers/garden etc.........so......that would be interesting, wouldn't it.......please do tell about your dream ! ....i love dreams :)

You can have my bfn and negative pregnancy vibes and juju im sick of them! Ive been without birth control for years lol cause i actually want to be bfp and preggers but this cycle is different. I didnt get my clomid script because of the grand mal so I bought my opk's , supplements, and continued to chart until we could get another appt.
We only BD one day in the fertile window so i figured that it was just another cycle, we tried. 2 days after I had O day I had a dream. I guess you can call it vivid. It was a baby dream. Ive had 2 more since including implantation spotting. In one of my dreams i was breastfeeding! Light pink spotting when my cycle was due. I dont have much in the way of PMS sometimes just a high sex drive right before and cramps after my cycle begins. So the tingly, swollen breasts, cramping AF like (outside of a period), are something new but ive experienced in a past pregnancy. My nipples keep getting hard with the tingling, weird. And my basal stayed steady.
Unfortunately I dont have a script for more prometrium either so if i am im praying it sticks.
If I am it is certainly a blessing! An unexpected but very welcome blessing!

i know the feeling of trying for years..we just tried for around 2 years, maybe a little longer and it was all very depressing and disheartening...it is the main reason i didn't go on birth control when life changed, and we decided it was best to wait it out...i just didn't think it was possible for me to get pregnant..yea, i know..stupid...maybe it wasn't that i thought i wouldn't, but that in the back of my head i still have that strong instinct to want a child...even when i first started wondering if i might be i got a bit excited....but now i'm back to reality and now is not a good time....but..if it is so, that is what will have to be and we'll just have to make things work...but i am worried :(

getting the test hopefully on friday, not sure how long it takes to get the results back from the lab......i'll be sure to post ! ..and i really really hope you're knocked up ! and if not...very very soon :)

I can understand a bit. Ive watched all around me. We have taken breaks but needed no birth control regardless. So you're getting a beta? I just cant lol. I cant get into the dr right now anyway. I figured I could test again at 28 dpo since Im at 20dpo now. Keeping an eye on my chart and wondering. 8 days isnt excessive. Im praying of course for sure. I dont think dh wants another letdown.
Guys dont realize that the waiting game isnt easy for us either. All threse symptoms and ya just wanna know.
but I dont want a negative beta while watching.pregnant bellies and babies.
I keep comparing pics of my tests to actual bfps and praying. I can chart until then. If its a bfp i shouldnt ovulate lol but see if im above the coverline. Im concerned about progesterone too.
I just have to trust God. Those dreams were so real! Ive prayed to know the truth and the dreams began before the symptoms did and were consistent. I have not been this symptomatic in a while and I wasnt focused on pregnancy when it started.

I am not suggesting you do this, since I am not a doctor....but if you are worried about progesterone, you can always do a little research on natural progesterone cream...I just ordered some myself (Emerita Pro-Gest) ..and I also got a supplement called Nature's Way DIM-plus. The dim-plus is for estrogen metabolizing for when you are estrogen dominate (which can be bad !) ...I read most women can benefit from the progesterone cream, but I would still look into it....it could help you conceive if you aren't already pregnant.

good luck again, and I look forward to finding out with you :)

I'm not sure anymore if I am getting the beta done....I want to..but I also kinda don't....part of me really doesn't think I am, but there is still that thought in the back of my mind :P
