Pregnant or something else???

I really hope someone can give me some advice. I'm 33, have no children & Me & my partner are currently trying to conceive, I have been actively using a clear blue fertility monitor & charting basal temps. My cycle is a little irregular, usually between 29-32 days but never earlier.

My ovulation times have been quite regular too, usually in the region of CD 13-16. However this month I ovulated on CD 9, which I thought was strange but did all we needed to, all at the right times.

From 3dpo I have been having symptoms I've really never experienced before, just started with sudden hot flushes, cramps in lower legs, then thighs, extreme painful breasts (at the side near armpits), then nipples burning, quite extreme lower back pain, dull ache that comes & goes & most importantly, urinating. I literally would usually urinate 4 times a day, however in the last 3 days I've counted 14 times in just one day? It's not a lot of urine just the need to go. Yesterday I had stringy creamy discharge (sorry tmi) & some niggling pain in pelvis, like pinching.

Today I have , for the first time since ovulation a sudden temp dip, & feel very tired. After going to the loo at 11 am today there was discharge but dirty blood streaked on the tissue. This has carried on through the day, it's not enough to wear a pad or a tampon, it's only there when I wipe? It doesn't smell like period blood, & it's dark brown to orangey? Slight back cramping but doesn't feel like period? I'm only day 20 of my cycle so certainly am not due for another 9 days at least. Did hcg yesterday that was negative. I know it's very early, but I'm perplexed? Can anyone help?

Desperate, thanks!

It's far too early to tell but straight from conception I felt utterly exhausted, my boobs were unbearably sore and I had some bleeding too (it's called implantation bleeding and totally normal) so there is every chance you are pregnant.

Don't get too excited because you might not be but be prepared to test if you are late coming on

Good luck!


Thanks tigernoodles! Still keeping fingers crossed, it's a little pinker today, however still only when I wipe & not flowing! Thanks for the advice, put my mind at ease :) x
