Oh no Kelly, I'm sorry!
Although, dark brown is "old" blood. You may still be in the running.
Take a test and quit torturing yourself.
I am in agreement with wannabenana....I would test just to be sure! I am sorry to hear this though, I was thinking about you!
If temp still up tomorrow I will test. Thanks ladies... :)
Best of luck! I remember how frustrated I was when ttc#2. I tortured myself every month for 5 months..I wish you the best outcome!
HOPE - with my daughter I thought AF was coming - very depressed because I was not pregnant due to the spotting - I thought for sure AF was coming went out got drunk - AF stopped - I tested and BOOM I know have a 19 month old and that is how she started. Poor thing mommy got drunk. Doctor assured me baby would be fine that most babies are conceived that way. PS. I had bleeding throughout my pregnancy with her.
Dont give up hope yet and take if from me - if you feel like a drink - wait hahaha
LMAO, I did that with Quinn. After 9 months of trying I was so discouraged, went out on a Sat night and got drunk. Mon I decided to test as no AF and sure enough a BFP...
all of my babies were conceived with alcohol...in fact my last one was what I thought to be a 5 day hangover...It was really morning sickness combined with a hangover.
Best of luck!!!
Why does that not surprise me? LOL :)
Quinnsmomma, do you usually spot a day or so before your period starts? As I understand it, that's a sign of a problematic drop in progesterone.
Are you being treated for low progesterone already?
Sometimes I do. No, I do not have low prog. Already been tested for that. It is actually common to spot 1-2 days prior to start of AF. If however you spot prior to 12 dpo that may indicate a short luteal phase and possible low progesterone level.
I worked 5 years in ob-gyn... ;) I learned quite a bit.
hahaha.... I really don't drink too much....REALLY...just when I do...there is ALWAYS a story!!!! LOL That's why my friends enjoy partying with me, cuz, I am such a CLUTZ without alcohol, so mix a little alcohol, and voila, instant DUMB ***!
quinnsmomma, yes, it is very common to spot 1-2 days before your period starts, but in fact, it is a drop in progesterone earlier than your cycle would begin that causes it. If you do this sometimes, and sometimes not, when they tested you perhaps you had higher progesterone that month, and lower another month.
I do know it's common - but so are minor fertility problems. I'm not trying to be argumentative - but if you are having unexplained infertility, this may be something to pursue.
Here you go - quick google search. Low progesterone being the cause of spotting before period.
I researched this last year because I was experiencing this, but I am perimenopausal (at 49) so it isn't a problem, and the lower progesterone levels are typical of the onset of menopause.
I'm just mentioning all this because so many have unexplained infertility, and often obvious causes are discounted.
I understand it is a drop in progesterone that causes it. 13 years in the medical field with 5 in ob-gyn I am very well aware of those things.
I have only been ttc #2 for 1 month I an not worried that it is unexplained infertility.
Thanks for the site but I already knew that info. I know u are trying to be helpful and I appreciate it.
AF is here that evil, hateful skank... LOL
Clomid already called into Walgreens and I start it on Thurs. Needed it for Quinn but hoping to not need it this time around. Was gonna try natural for a few cycles but what the heck I am not getting any younger. Might as well go for it.
Wish me luck ladies!!
hmm, funny I always have spotting before period but never had low progesterone. They only tested me once during pregnacy while spotting and it was normal. Thanks for the info I will ask my GYN about that after I have this baby - hopefully they can stop that annoyance.
Quinnsmomma - Sorry - that DARN AF. Now have a DRINK and make is a big one - I am pregnant and have not had one so you can take a double for me. I am sure you will be pregnant in no time. I remember when you were trying to decide if you were ready to start trying for #2 - glad you decided. Now we will all have babies around the same age again. I will keep you in my prayers for a healthy pregnancy very soon.
Thanks... I will have a few drinks for us both. LOL Yes, I am happy we decided on ttc baby #2. It will be quite the adventure. :)
I have no doubt that clomid will do the trick. ;)
and a little alcohol helps too....j/k!! *wink wink
((HUGS)) sorry about that skank AF...that made me really laugh!!!
At least you can PARTY like me on New Years Eve!!! HELLLLOOOOO HANGOVER...just not a 5 day long one for me this time....tee hee hee
So true...c'mon rum and diet coke!!
That's ok, party up tomorrow and try again, I am sure Clomid will worl again! Quinn is adorable!
Awwwwwww Kelly, I'm sorry!
Bring on the clomid so the skank stays away for the next 9 months!
I'll drink right along with you! How does a double dirty martini sound? I don't have the makings for anything else.
Martini sounds good to me... Heck even a beer sounds good to me right now.
Bummed, cannot start Clomid tomorrow after all. Brown spotting yesterday stopped early and has not resumed so doc is not going to consider yesterday cd1. He wants me to wait until I start spotting red or AF actually begins...
Preg test was BFN so I know I am not preggers. :(
