Hi everyone. I got what I thought was AF on Sunday, at 10 dpo. I am not a real tester until I have reason to think I am pregnant, so when I started bleeding, I didn't think of testing. This was not spotting, it was bleeding like a period and continued through yesterday evening at least.
I have been charting and my temp didn't drop immediately, but it never does. Today, temp is still up and I'm feeling bloated still which usually goes away by day 4. Had a test sitting around and decided on a whim to take it. Without a doubt, clearly positive. I am 13 DPO by my chart. I have other children and this has never happened to me before.
Besides that, the reason I am scared.....I never drink after ovulation if there is a chance for pregnancy, but we had a gathering with friends and I had 3 drinks on Sunday after I started bleeding! I also took some ibuprofen for cramping and started taking some herbs on Monday and Tuesday that are supposed to regulate the menstrual cycle (I have been struggling with a short LP). That was part of the reason I tested today with the temp still up.....to make extra sure before taking them again today. I already unceremoniously called my husband on his way to work to tell him.
Please tell me I did not hurt my baby, if there really is one. I am at a bit of an increased risk for ectopic pregnancy so will have to call the doctor anyway, but I'm embarrassed to tell them what I did. I feel awful.
