The suspense is killing me!

Hi everyone,

DH and I have only been TTC for 2 months. I stopped by BC at the end of March after taking it for a little over a year. I got my first cycle on April 2nd, and like most of my periods, it lasted 7-8 days (3 days really heavy, 3 days medium and 2 days of spotting). Based on my calendar, I ovulated sometime between April 14th - 19th and DH and I were together several times. My next period came around May 3rd, but was extremely different from the others... It was only 3 days and super light compared to my usual cycles. Unfortunately, I don't recall whether or not it was red or a different color. During this whole time since ovulating in April until today, I've experienced nausea, bloating, constipation, loss of appetite, fatigue, moodiness (according to DH), and on/off sore and tender nipples (sorry if this is TMI). I don't expect my next period until June 3rd and it's driving me bonkers! I didn't see the point in taking a HPT since I still have 9 days to go, but should I just go for it? I know that if it comes out negative, I can always take another one if my period never arrives, but is it worth the trouble? I don't want to get my hopes up.

Your last "period" could have been implantation spotting, since it was short and light! Since you are having symptoms, you could take a pregnancy test since if you conceived during the previous cycle a HPT should come out positive! Good luck! :)

Thanks! I'm hoping for a BFP too, but I'm trying to be realistic and not get my hopes up. As of today, if May's cycle wasn't implantation bleeding, then I still have 8 days to go. I'm going to try and stick it out until at least Tuesday or Wednesday. Fingers crossed!
