Scared to take a PG test!

Happy New Year everyone! 

My DH and I started TTC in January 2012... In May I had a positive pregnancy test, to only start bleeding a week later.  We took a few months off from TTC and started trying again in December... My cycles are normally between 25-27 days... I am usually on time and on point every month... This month was a bit confusing..  My period was due to start late last week, even on the weekend... I started slightly spotting on Saturday (I can't even really call it spotting since it only happened twice when I wiped)... Then on Sunday, the same thing, I only had a little pink when I wiped a few times... By monday, I was completely clear... today is day 31 (I've never past 27 days and if i did, it was by 28 the latest)... I want to sit here and pin point every single little symptom I have, but I just don't know if it's because I'm here obsessing over every little detail... I want to say I feel queasy... My breast feel heavy and sore, but they also feel that way when i get my AF... I have cramps, but i had cramps with my last pregnancy too...  I'm just confused..

I think I'm just scared to take a pregnancy test because in May I took a test before my AF was due, got a positive and then started bleeding... I don't want to get excited so early....  My DH suggested we wait a little bit before taking a PG test.. I want to take one today right now, but at the same time, I want to wait!!  I just can't help feeling the way I do!  Do you ladies think I'm over reacting? lol

Thank you for taking time out to read my post!

That could have been implantation bleeding over the weekend, I think it's a great sign that you haven't had any more since then.  It's hard to wait, although it wouldn't hurt to wait a few more days.  Honestly, I think you are probably in the clear since AF was already due, even if you ovulated a few days late according to the spotting.  I know that you don't want to get your hopes up but you are already hoping, kwim?  It's probably better to test and know for sure.  Good luck!

take the test.  i know how it feels to wait and wonder and almost rather not take the test than get the 'negative' result.  i con't even tell you how many pregnancy tests i took where i actually started my period AS I WAS TAKING THE TEST. very frustrating and depressing.  but take it and see.  good luck :)

Hey Yahaira - did you test? How'd it go?

I bought a multi-pack of tests because I wanted to test sooner and later... but I know sometimes it's nice to keep wondering a little longer! But in your case you've seen a positive turn out tough, so that isn't necessarily reassuring. Keep healthy and keep trying!
