New and Irregular with Questions!

Postby bella205 » Sat Feb 18, 2012 11:22 am

I have been irregular all my life so this two week wait is confusing! Had AF 1/19-1/24; prior to that I skipped Nov. and Dec. Active baby dancing every other day or so since 1/23. On 2/2 there was very watery discharge with some O like twinges. A few days later, on the 8th twinges to pulling to sharp quick pains to light cramps in lower right side where O sensations usuay might be (to the point where it disturbed my sleep!) This lasted for almost a week and are now gone, so I contacted the OB and they said to wait it out until AF comes in 2 weeks or so. After 4 hpts and 4 BFNs I feel so confused. I have been getting more and more moody and emotional like AF is going to come, but I have no other PMS like symptoms. So my question is how can you really track and chart if you are irregular like me!? Is pregnancy possible? Any insight or tips would be very much appreciated!! :?

I too have irregular cycles too. Right now it's on a 46 day cycle, but I've skipped months before. I will be watching this topic very closely.

BBT - Basal Body Temperature. It's teh best way to track down your ovulation and possible pregnancy. I have irregular cycles so I started Mid Cycle on day 57 or so Im currently CD 67 it's giving me a good grasp on where I am in my cycle. According to temps, I still have not Ovulated.....there's a lot of resources that can help you with BBT'ing. Your temps have to be at a certain stabile temp if you are preg and blah blah. Go to Fertilityfriend.com you can learn stuff right there.

I agree BBT is the best way. That and OPKs (Ovulation tests). I dont cycle on my own so it really helps me! FX!

I don't know if everyone gets them or if they are a sign of PCOS. I get them all the time!

I've been tested and sonogramed. Everything's clear, so no PCOS. I'm not sure what it was. Strange! We'll see what the next couple of weeks bring. I started reflexology a couple of days ago to regulate my cycles. 8)

Good luck with everything.

I think you're right! I've been paying attention to my body more than ever now. I'm on CD33 with no sign of AF. I always have PMS - sore bb's are the give away - for atleast 2 weeks before she comes. My last cycle was almost 90 days! But I was under a ton of stress. I have a feeling this might be a long cycle but hopefully the reflexology will help straighten things out. :D

Oh I thought you got AF by the comment Def not pregnant. So no AF means still a chance!

No, no AF. But have gotten what feels like a million BFNs; just lastnight I tested. IDK, I just figured I haven't even O'd yet. It's so confusing!
