I went to the ob on wed for some concerns i had none concerning my ttc, and when my doc did her exam she ordered a pregnancy test because of the way my cervix looked. Ok it was negitive. she told me to take another in a week

I would say, try to not think too much into it. I know its harder said then done. we may all know for a fact that when you think your pregnant you feel pregnant. DH and I have a five year old DD. And since then we've never got pregnant. No birth control no condoms. Once I decided this year we would try to get pregnant I just kept track of af and ovulation on a calender. The month we decided to try during the big O, I got my BFP!

Good luck and I hope to see you on the EC board soon!

Unfortunately, your Dr. may have led you on slightly. I own probably 20-30 Fertility books and every single one of them say that in early pregnancy, the cervix is completely inaccurate when determaining pregnancy. For some women it's high or low, others it's soft or hard, open or close, blue or red, and the list goes on. In those coming days before an HPT or just after, your cervix won't tell you much. My question, however is, did you say you go your period or what you thought was your period? If you had heavy bleeding of any kind, I would consider that my cycle and start at CD1 on that first heavy day so you can predict ovulation as it comes up. Lots of baby dust and luck to you!

Well I have been tracking for about 6 months now. And the reason I question my cycle is because it came a couple days early and it only last 2 days.

What kind of AF was it? An early AF that arrived early and lasted 2 days could have been implantation bleeding or early pg spotting. Was your AF heavy with bright red blood? Also, you said the doc ordered a pg test - what kind of test was it? A blood test or urine? The reason I ask is that your hcg levels could be too low to detect on a urine test but would definitely be quantified on a blood test. Usually an hcg level higher than 5 means pg (I think).

I understand. Sometimes we have shorter periods for no reason and a lot of women get the shock of it coming early.

The thing about implantation is that it is extremely rare. It does happen but it's rare. Not to mention, it's more like a swipe of a little pink or brown with your CM when wiping rather than bleeding for 2 days. IB also comes around 6-7dpo so anything after that, is more likely to be spotting pre-AF or AF itself.

HCG doubles every couple days so just try and keep testing and see what happens. Worse case, give the Dr. a call in about a week if AF still isn't here.

Good Luck!
