Getting Anxious Again!

I haven't been on here in over a year and a half. My husband and I have been TTC for 4 years with no luck. We tried for a year and a half. Then I took Clomid for a year. Then I just needed a break and have just been trying with no medical help again for about the last year and a half. The last few months I have been starting to get anxious again. I HATE reading into signs of my body... so why do I still do it after this long?! (I guess I'm crazy or its just the natural thing to do.) But I hate to get my hopes up. I haven't in a long time but I guess I have this month. I have had slight cramping all week but I blew it off thinking that I wouldn't start my period for another week to week and a half. I have a light fever Tuesday but again just ignored it, probably just not feeling so hot and probably that's why I slept through all my alarms. But 3 days ago (cd 27)  I went running and my boobs hurt so bad and then I came home from the gym and I had a a small amount of  very light brown discharge on my TP (sorry TMI). I started crying because I thought I was going to start my period a week early and no baby luck again. But I still haven't started and I thought for sure I would have by now. Normally if I spot I or have colored discharge I start that day or the next. Maybe I will this weekend but has anyone else had anything like this? I need to stop reading into stuff but I totally am since I haven't started. I am on cd 30, still early, because I normally don't start until day 34-38.

This brownish spotting can be due to implantation bleeding. You can test 1 week- 10 days after you miss your periods or you can test for pregnancy by a highly sensitive pregnancy test 10 days post ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test.. Also I would suggest you to get your serum HCG levels estimated since this is more specific than urine for pregnancy tests. The HCG (it is a hormone) levels rise only in pregnancy and its presence will confirm the status of your pregnancy.

I hope it helps. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Well I would not say to stop reading into your body's symptoms. Like you said I think it's just instinct. And as I have read if you feel prego and have symptoms then treat it as a pregnancy untio you confirm otherwise. Dont you and the hubby give up my hubby and I have been married for 11 yrs and trying for 7. I tested with ovulation kit this cycle and go the digtial smiley face that we ovulated so wish us luck. Like you said it's very hard not to read into your body. Best to you
