    Could I be pregnant
    maryahh08 posted:

    I was 6 days late for my period and then had really bad cramps. I started to bleed a little bit not enough to fill a pad for about a day and a half and now nothing but a little spotting when I wipe.My breasts have been really sore for 2 weeks. Could I be pregnant? We have been trying for around 7 months

    You should take a pregnancy test to find out for sure. You said you were six days late, so you will get an accurate answer. Good luck and keep us posted!

    Sounds like a Chemical Pregnancy to me (very early miscarriage). I've had 2 now and it's devasting. Chances are, even if you were pregnant, you wouldn't have a bfp anymore. I'm about 80% sure this is what has happened to you. Either that or, if you don't chart your bbt and aren't exactly positive (based on chart confirmation) of when you ovulated, you could have just O'd late which is why your period was "late". However, if O was confirmed and your pregnancy test is negative, I'd be willing to bet that you conceived but the pregnancy didn't "stick". No need to worry though. Chemical Pregnancies are unfortunately pretty common and most women don't even know they've had one and just chalk it up to a weird/late/bad period. I'm sorry you're dealing with this. ((HUGS)) Fingers crossed that you are indeed pregnant! Lots of reasons for bleeding in early pregnancy as well. xx GL!
