    Am I pregnant

    Hello everyone

    This is fairly new for me. I am 37 years old and trying for a baby. My fiancé and I had sex during my fertile days everyday. I had brown and pink blood a week before my normal period. I was so exhausted and at one time slept the whole day, which is unusual for me. I have terrible migraine, tummy ache and backache, which is normal for me but this time very severe.

    I had a normal period (looks like it) a week later which is rather heavy. I am constantly tired and nauseas. I took two urine tests which came negative on the day of my period.

    My question is; is it normal to be bleeding this long or could I be pregnant or maybe something more? last week, I was certain that I am pregnant and then had the normal period. I am a regular 28 days cycle and my periods last 5 days.

    I have not gone to doctor yet and can only get an appointment in three days. For now this is driving me crazy

    Anyone ever experienced this and discovered they were pregnant or does anyone have any explanation for me

    Thank you in anticipation

    KonaMommy responded:
    Did you recently go off of the pill? That could explain the unusual periods and symptoms. If you had a normal (substantial) period and have had 2 negative pregnancy tests since the day of your expected period, it seems unlikely that you are pregnant.
