Was anyone convinced AF was coming, but got BFP? — The Bump
Success after IF

Was anyone convinced AF was coming, but got BFP?

Today is beta day for me, so I'm just waiting for the call. I *swear* I'm getting my period though. I'm trying to hold out hope, but I'm not feeling very optimistic. Please tell me that you pg women felt the same!

  • I had a lot of cramping and thougth AF was on her way and was completely wrong.

  • I had no symptoms and was sure that it didn't work.  I'd had chemical pgs before where I felt a lot, and this was totally different.

    Don't give up yet!  I'm hoping you'll get good news!!  (cute screenname by the way!)

  • Yep!  I swore that it didn't work and that AF was coming.  Good Luck!!!

    Ditto.

  • I felt like that with my first IVF and was pg.  This time (beta is tomorrow) I have nothing but three BFN's on pee sticks.
  • Yes, I was 110% sure that AF was on her way. I felt like I did every other month - crampy and cranky. Good luck!
  • I started cramping and spotted 2 days before my Beta.  It was my usual AF signs so I assumed it was over.
  • I was hoping for a BFP on my birthday even though it was only about 9 days past IUI at that point.  I tested and negative.  So I figured it was too early and I'd test again in a day or two.  Well that night my period started (or so I thought), which was so NOT what I wanted for my birthday.  A few days later, the bleeding stopped and since I was supposed to start clomid again on day 3 of my cycle, I figured I'd better test before I started to take it, especially since the cycle seemed so weird and short.  Lo and behold, there was that "Pregnant" staring up at me on the digital.  I was really shocked!

    Good luck to you!!!

  • I was convinced, yes - the only AF symptom I lacked was the very strong backache - it was much duller than usual when I was apparently pg. ?I got up about 3 times the night or two before my BFP to check and see if I'd gotten AF.

  • I had AF symptoms and a negative HPT. I was so sure AF was coming, when I was 4 days late, I didn't think "oh maybe I am pg", I thought "WHAT THE H*LL IS WRONG WITH ME NOW!!!"

    Turned out I was pg!

  • Me-- had all  my usual pre-AF symptoms, including spotting.

  • I had camping the entire time during my 2WW.  And I was totally convinced AF was coming.  And usually I would get AF the same day I had my beta.  But this it was not the case!!  Good Luck, keep us updated!!  :)
  • me! i was cramping & spotting & i was sooo bummed.

    when i got a BFP i was in shock!

  • me, I was totally cramping and has no other PG symptoms.  I was floored when it worked and got a BFP.
  • Me!!  The only reason I tested (I was on a break cycle) was because I wanted to get a prescription for Provera from my dr because I was having AF symptoms for a couple weeks with no AF and it had been almost three months since my last one.

  • ***Raises hand***

    I was confident AF was coming.  Since we were on a break cycle I did not have a beta scheduled.  I decided to POAS since I only had one left.  I was SHOCKED when it came up pregnant.  I was sooooo not expecting that.

    Keep the faith - it can happen!

  • Me! I had no signs of pregnancy, no sore bbs, nothing and I hadn't gotten implantation spotting. Since I had never had a BFP before, I swore than when I actually get pg, I would have spotting and so I was convinced it didn't work. Boy, was I wrong :)
