    Default Confused and Frustrated!

    The past few weeks have been strange. Started off with about a week of bad pains/bloating etc (similar to what I feel before ovulation), then those symptoms were replaced with very very tender breasts for just over a week and lots of slippery cm. The cm dried up literally overnight and the breast tenderness disappeared. Last Tuesday I had one episode of pink spotting. On Friday I tested with a FRER and fmu, BFN. Late Saturday night I started spotting again so I thought for sure af was coming. Sunday more light spotting. It goes back and forth between brown and pink. Have also had some cramping off and on. Now this morning, nothing. Today is the 15th day after the cm dried up. I just wanted to vent. Just frustrated! Either af show or not but I wish that my body would just make up it's mind!!

    Oh Jodi, I'm so sorry. Nothing more frustrating than your body not cooperating with you. Can you call the doctor for a blood test?

    I could go to my primary for a beta. The results take longer to get back. It's a long story but I no longer go to my RE. I might just take another hpt if af doesn't show up before we leave on our trip on Saturday. I just wish if af is coming just start already!

    sounds like my first cycle after starting femara a few years ago. It was so frustrating and no one knew what was going on. IF treatments can/do really mess up your hormones. Have you been taking an clomid/femara/IF drugs?

    Nope, no fertility meds in almost 2 years now.

    Yesterday (3rd) barely any spotting, again going back and forth from light pink to brown. This morning so far only one episode of brown, tiniest amount.

    Frustrated! I think it's just some sort of breakthrough spotting. I really don't know. Thanks for letting me vent ladies!

    I really abhor spotting. Full-blown AF at least gives an answer, but spotting? Who knows. I hope you aren't still stuck in limbo-land!

    Limbo-land sucks Beth! You're so right! Around dinner time lastnight I had cramps that made me sure af was coming and STILL nothing!! I'm so frustrated! It's not like me to spot for this long before af. When it does happen, it's for a day or two at most. And I very rarely get brown discharge either. Nothing much has changed. Still spotting lightly (tmi... only when I wipe, no need for even a pantyliner) going back and forth from pink to brown and mild cramping. Even have the odd wave of nausea. My husband brought home a hpt lastnight and it was bfn this morning. Have no idea how much hcg it detects as it's not a name brand (it is a pharmacy brand, Rexall, but it was pink at least) the pharmacy in my small town doesn't sell name brand hpt's.

    Sorry your body is throwing you for a loop like that! How are things looking today?
