Pregnant at 40?

I'm 40 yrs old, 10 days late and just started spotting thin brown transparent discharge when I wipe. Today I felt nausea with strong odors ( ie: feeding cat can food bleh) I feel bloated and huge. Stuffy nose at night. Af is normally regular. I never missed period before except when pregnant, yet dollar store test says negative 2x. Am I pregnant or are my hormones going bonkers? Should I buy more expensive test?

I would try a different test. I started brown spotting on the day my period was supposed to start which was Sunday. I have had similar symptoms and tried a CVS brand and there is a very,very faint line (see my post on this forum). Wishing you good luck and keep us posted!

Hi, thanks for your response. Well, the brown spotting has continued, and is now a brown-red light to medium flow. Seems like AF has arrived after all. I can't remember starting a period with brown, only ending with it. Seems odd though. Well, it was nice to have wishful thinking for awhile. :)

Our stories are so similar! I too have new husband of 5 1/2 yrs, and teenage son from previous marriage. I so very much want babies with this wonderful man. Congrats on your positive test! You inspire me :)

Everything stopped. So far I'm dry today. No spotting, no bleeding, nothing. Ok, I don't want to get hopes up, but I think its time to get early detection test from store. I will let yall know results.
