Am I prego?

So I have had irregular periods since coming off Depo last August. My husband and i have been TTC since then with no luck. We have been told it can take up to 18 months. My periods have finally settled to a 33 day cycle for the past 6 months, but I am now 3 days late. I normally get breast soreness about 10 days prior to starting and up until i start, but nothing this month. I also get moody about 3 days before I start and once again... Nothing. I have had small abdominal cramps and light brown spotting on TP when I use the RR. I have had 2 negative hcg tests. I also don't feel bloated like I normally do prior to starting. Has anyone had these problems?? Results??? Thanks!

I would say wait a week, and then re-test with FMU. If after this test, and if it comes back negitive then I would say to see your doc. TTC can take a toll on stress level. Usually by now using a HPT, it should come out pos or neg. But I have had different experience with HPT. I never test POS, when a bloodtest shows I am prego. Did the brown spotting occur when you were suppose to get on your AF? There are so many reasons why AF could be late, from stress, to weight loss/gain, and you said that you were on the Depo then got off last Aug. I would say wait a week, re-test with FMU. And If this comes back negitive, call your GYN and see what they advice you to do.

The spotting came the day I was due, but it was hardly anything. Maily clear with a cpl of light brown dots. It has only happened a cpl times and I keep waiting for my AF to come when I use the RR, but nothing. Like I said before I feel weird because I didn't get any of my normal PMS symptoms. I haven't been too stressed, but who knows that could be the case. Thanks!

We are really on the same boat. But I have cramping, and lower back pain, leg pains, and my boobs are killing me. I took a HPT 2.5 weeks ago, and I spotted for 3 days, PINK with CM. I thought my AF was coming, but NOTHING. I went to the docs last night, and got bloodwork. I have PCOS, so I thought maybe it was acting put. But HPT didn't work for my the first two times I was prego.But when TTC, stress can do harm, and it is crazy, because I just think that I have seen women who smoke during there preganacy and they carry to full term, but my second M/C doc said stress played a factor in it. That is why I am trying to keep stress free, I am healthy and living healthy. Sorry to keep rambling on and on.
