Hello Ladies! I am Angie. I am 22 and I am from Easton, PA.
My boyfriend and I TTC and got pregnant in January and I miscarried at 6 weeks and 2 days. NO D&C had to be done since I had passed everything on my own. Here we are again 3 months later and I can't tell the difference now between AF symptoms or just pregnancy since my body has never been the same. I have a 26 day cycle which would mean I ovulated on the 31st and had intercourse twice daily over the next 4 days. Shortly 3 days after or around the 5th or 6th I started getting serious cramps that would come and go. My breasts feel like they are water balloons, but no period. My period is expected to be the 14th.. I know I have very little symptoms now, but is there any other way I could tell besides waiting on a HPT?

Hi Angie! I'm sorry to hear of your m/c. The unfortunate thing is there really isn't any surefire way to tell about whether your symptoms are due to pregnancy or AF being on her way because they can be so similar. I would say, however, that if you O'd on the 31st, that puts you at 12 dpo (days past ovulation). So there is a chance that you could take an HPT and get a positive result at this point, depending on the sensitivity of the test. However, if you got a negative result, that might just mean that you'd have to wait a few more days and test again. Some women don't get BFPs until quite a while after AF is due anyway. But keep us posted on how things go. I'm really hoping you are pregnant! :D

i agree that you could prob take a htp now. use a first response, theyre the most sensitive ones you can buy in the store. i think your symptoms sound promising. good luck!

Thank you's for your replies. I took a First Response 6 days sooner test and the line came up super light. If I put it up to the light you could see it way better. I took an hCG test that I have used in the past and a line showed up light as well. I was looking up on when to take a blood test and I wanna go soooo bad after this! had my missed period already. Ahhh I will be so psyched.. going to try and post some photos for you ladies to see what you think. Thanks again :D

Ooohhhh, congratulations!!! Definitely post picks! Also in the POAS forum too; those ladies are awesome at seeing lines and whatnot. Try taking more tests in a few days too and the line should get darker! Keep us updated! :D

Preggers test! This time still faint, but you can tell.

Oh, that sure does look positive to me! Super-exciting!!! :jump: Is that a more recent one than your FRER?

Yes that was taken yesterday in the evening. I tried uploading some photos of the FR test but it was so blurry on my phone and faint.

Awesome! If your FRER was really light that definitely means the line's getting darker! A great sign! Praying for a sticky little bean for you!!! :D
