Trying to Get Pregnant
Options

Confused... any insight is helpful....

We are trying to get pregnant. my normal period comes exactly 28 days apart. i had a period march 14. i was due for my period april 11th. i started 4 days early on the 7. maybe tmi but normally i am an extremely heavy bleeder and fill both a tampon and pad in 2-3 hours tops. well this period i bled the full 7 days but i only used 1-2 tampons a day. i am still getting negative tests so i aimed for baby dancing time during what i thought were around my ovulation times. we had sex the 18, 19, 20, and 21. the app on my phone says im due to start may 1 (since my last period was early) but the 4 (with my normal 28 day cycle) the last 3-4 days i have been cramping like i normally do the day i start my period but still no aunt flo. does it sound like this month may be our month?? sorry so long lol

    Phone apps are notoriously inaccurate since they only give you information based on averages, not on your body.  In the future I would suggest charting using Fertility Friend (a free website many of us use here).  Length of cycle and duration/flow of your period can very cycle to cycle.  Reading anything into it will only make you crazy.

    We're not going to be able to tell you if this is your month.  If you think you might be pregnant, take a home pregnancy test.

     I second all of this. Check out the Newbie Blog - there's a TON of great information that will probably help you feel much less confused.

    My sister, an RN, absolutely thought she knew her cycle to a t.  Was frustrated she couldn't get pregnant.  Finally started charting, found out she was totally off.  See the newbie link and check out Taking Control of Your Fertility to learn about your body.  GL

    Spot on advice here.

    I am baffled by those that don't attempt to educate themselves about their bodies.

    Baffled.

    Before you say that you do not want to buy a book, FertilityFriend.com has the same information available to you for free.  Yes, you read that right!  FREE!
