So you are 3 weeks meaning you are only overdue for your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> by 1 week? Is that right? When was your last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>? Or are you 3 weeks from when your period was due?
there is a great differnce betweent spotting/bleeding and a full blown <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>! ones a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> with the cramps. lenght. flow....everything that happens when you have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> and when you spot/bleed. (its mostly spotting if even that) its in no way similar to a period. its a few drops of blood here and there. not filling a pad or tampon. etc theres a differnce and you would know yes if your so worried your pregnant than simply take a test.
I normally have 29 day cycles and started bleeding this morning at 46 days. I took a dollar store pregnancy test over a week ago and it had come back negative. I'm not sure if the test was accurate or not. Last night I had sex with my boyfriend again and afterwards got very light cramping, but didn't think much of it. I woke up early this morning with light spotting and cramps. I went back to sleep and then woke up again with heavy bleeding and strong cramps.
My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> was a "missed" miscarriage. I never had any symptoms at all, I went in for an ultrasound and found out that the baby had died about a week sooner. I'm sorry I couldn't be more help.
From what I have read from the posts, it sounds rather normal to have a heavy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>. I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> on April 23, 2009, naturally. I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> in June but it was rather light. I just got my period again and like you said it has been as if I am miscarrying all over again. A tampon was only lasting every 2 hours if that. I probably soaked through my clothes two days in a row because it was just so heavy. You are definitely right, it is disturbing.
Emotionally I cant do another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> so I am trying (even know that may seem tough) all odds of a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> as the fear worries me.. WHat do you think I should do Shots of Just Femara anyone had a suceess on either or as I am using donar sperm due to my husband is not fertile.. Thanks so much and its good to be back as I am much more aware of myself and I hope all is doing well.
hello ladies, Well I started clomid in Nov/08 and got a BFP in January/09 but it was not sticky and I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> early in the pregnancy. I had to let my cycles level out and went with out clomid for a few months. I have been back on clomid since end of march/09. Although it is great and helpful with ovulation.
I had horrible cramps the night i got my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>. then i had my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> for one full day, normally. the second full day i had awful cramps again in the morning and a full day of normal period. The next day i passed what i thought was a clot. it was larger than normal (i typically clot) and so i pulled it out of the toilet. it consisted of a red blob looking like a piece of liver, a little bit bigger than a nickel, and attached was a white vein type of tissue that was about and inch long.
Ok so I do have this app o have my DROID with a calendar where I track my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>, intimacy, and other notes and it calculates my fertile days and my ovulation day for me. So my question is, it shows me fertile 5days before and after my ovulation day...so if we have sex within any of those days we've got a good change of getting pregnant?? I apologize for this being kinda silly..
IM so sorry for your loss. As for the bathroom issue, im not sure but as for the blood that is completely normal. when I miscarried it was the dark brown which is "old blood, from miscarriage" and then the fresh blood would come and then darken back to the dark reddish brown as period is starting to end.
We had another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> a couple of monthes ago (very early, much like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span>). I finally bought the expensive ovulation predictor machine and used it this month. It recently said that I ovulated on day 20 of my cycle. I am worried because even if I were to achieve pregnancy this month, my luteal phase is too short that the embryo would be shed. Should I ask my doctor for some progesterone just in case??
We've gone through several variations of one of them preferring one of us for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> of time. I think it is completely normal. I think extreme separation anxiety, i.e. if you leave for a short period of time and the child is inconsolable in your absence, may merit more attention, though. I am sure it depends on the child, but I've always found with my children that if I tell them I'm going out, and when I'll be back (I've even given them clocks, timers etc.
Although, I've never experienced a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span>, which I'm very sorry for you loss, but nonetheless, TTC is a full-time, mind consuming, and at times...an impersonal JOB!!! I was literally grabbing my husband by his neck tie when he would walk in the door after work and say "OK, take your pants off let's get going!!!" How romantic is that? Let me say it's like pouring ice cold water over someone...they freeze right up!
A collection of your urine over a 24-hour <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> can also give important information. The antibodies your body makes against its own normal cells and tissues play a large role in lupus. Many of these antibodies are found in a panel, or group, of tests that are ordered at the same time. The test you will hear most about is called the ANA test. This is not a specific test for lupus, however.
(I'm the one who is 46 and who just had a second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span>.) My RE said that ivf is far preferable to iui because they can control so many factors. In iui, they hope the egg and sperm will meet up, but really there's no way of knowing. I think you said you have had some high FSH levels. My impression is that REs have certain criteria you have to meet to be eligible for ivf (e.g., age 43 or less, certain FSH and estradiol levels, etc.
My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> was coming later and later and then finally stopped. I was put on Provera to get my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> started and them clomid to help ovulate. Did 50mg and no ovulation. Did 100mg and no ovulation. I didn't want to do a 3rd round. I wanted a new option. She referred me to FCI in Oakbrook. Has anyone been there before? Since I have a history of no ovualtion, would it be better to do IVF instead of IUI? Is there certain questions I should ask the doctor there?
i also, stated menopause around the age of 43. i haven't had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>period</span> in about 5 years...both my mom and my sisters started early as well so i didn't think anything of it.and talk about stress...mine started around 15 yrs ago..lol.
Oh, ok, I guess I read your answer the wrong way. Sorry about that. It's is a controversial subject as it should be.
So I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> Sept 21st 2010 and I bleed for two days..I wasn't that far along...so the question I am asking is it's October 18 2010 and we have been trying to get pregnant..When is the earliest I can take a pregnancy test...after I miscarried I took a pregnancy test to make sure I fully miscarried and the test said no...so should I take one like October 22nd that way it's been four weeks since my miscarriage. Any suggestions on what I should do???
Then, I waited one cycle after the 2nd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> thinking maybe I should have waited but I didn't before. Throughtout all this, my cycle has been regular -28 days with ovulation midcycle, but this month after having waiting thru one cycle before, I ovulated late - around day 25 and I still have not gotten my period yet, though it was expected now based on when I last got my period.
GRAPHIC <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> DETAILS - PLEASE DO NOT READ IF THIS WILL UPSET YOU!! I recently suffered my 2nd miscarriage at 10.5 weeks. I saved the tissue that I passed and gave it to the nurse in the ER for testing. Although I signed all of the paperwork to have the testing done, apparently the tissue was discarded and the tests were not done for some reason, even though my OB wanted to have the testing done also. I cannot tell you how devastating this is for me!
As I stated in my previous post I just recently had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>miscarriage</span> (janurary) and yet here we are two months later and no period. I just recently have started having extreme pregnancy symptoms so I decided to test and since I do not have the slightest Idea of when I could have conceived I don;t know how to go about this. i tooka clear blue easy early hpt and I saw a faint line. It was so faint I had to get a second opinion so I called my sister over and she confirmed it. The line was there.
