    Could it be?!?

    For the past week and a half I have been feeling a lot of symptoms that good ole google keeps telling me might mean I'm pregnant. Sore boobs, nausea, sensitivity to smells and more. My husband and I had unprotected sex Oct 8 and I'm now 9 days late for AF. I also had some spotting around Oct 22 which I think may have been implantation bleeding?

    I've been wanting to have a baby since I got my IUD out in July. Although we were planning on waiting until January to try but we are both excited that we might be a little ahead of schedule

    The thing is I've taken a couple of HPTs now, most recently 2 days ago and still they have all come back negative...I'm confused

    So could it be?

    You could be! If I were you I would try another HPT with first morning urine and also call your doctor for blood work. You may be like me and have a low amount of HCG to show up on home tests so you might have to get blood work no matter what.

    Thanks! I'm planning on taking another test in the morning. Although I've had some dark brown discharge today and I'm starting to think I may see another BFN
