I stopped taking birth control about 6 months ago, but I wasn't on it for very long at all. (It makes me feel crazy hahaha)
Anyway, so my husband and I have been TTC since then. However.....nothing. We tried sex every day to every other day to laying down hahahaha every crazy tip I could find!
I've been charting my periods and they have been pretty consistent every month, but still, no conception has occured.
However, last month, (October) we REALLY tried while I was ovulating and around a week and half after ovulation, my breasts have become so tender, NO ONE can come near them.
I am a kindergarten teacher and my students can't even hug me anymore.
This has continued on now to Nov. (3 weeks) and, I ran with it. Two days before my AF, I took a pregnancy test. Negative.
I was crushed.
Now though, my period is over a week and half late, my breasts are still super tender, and I have had light brownish spotting recently accompanied by cramping.
It's so light though and I keep thinking it's the start of my period, but it is too small and light.
Anyway, I know I should take another pregnancy test, but I am so afraid of being crushed again. I just feel like I'm not pregnant but I'm reaaaalllly hoping I am!
I'm just trying to either A. Make myself get pumped to take a test or B. Try and keep ignoring it.
I guess I would just like some support or feedback on if you think that I tested too early. Or did I do it at the right time and I am probably not pregnant.
My breasts are going to kill me though! I need them to stop hurting haha!

Depending on the test, and when you ovulated it could have just been too early. Since you are officially late, I say test. It's never fun to see a negative, even when I had an IUD and didn't want to be pregnant, I still got upset just a bit.
I think you should test again. If it's still negative you could always call your doctor and go in for a blood test to be sure and talk to them about the sore breasts then if it's not pregnancy.
Thank you ladies, but it would be just my luck that after I post this and go to my spin class, my period comes on in. I guess it needed spin to give it that extra boost.
I was reaalllly hoping this would be the month, but I all I can do is keep going
Thank you again!

no fun! Just keep trying!
Sorry it didn't turn out to be the month for you. It sucks, but for some it takes longer than for others. I hope it happens for you soon. Also, Welcome and thank you for sharing your journey with us. Please stick around and keep us posted on how things are going. This is a great place to find support, ask questions or just vent and complain about the frustrations of TTC and so many other things!
Sorry to hear.
I'm sure it will happen soon

It was a flase start and just a little light bleeding, but after that, nothing! Super dry. So then I thought, "hmmm that's the lightest period of my life."
Two days ago, the breast tenderness was killing me, I couldn't take it anymore!
I was going to go to the doctor, but before, I wanted to take a pregnancy test to get an suspicions out of my mind.
Three pregnancy tests later, ALL POSITIVE!
Hahaha the pregnancy tests are in Korean because my husband is stationed out here in Korea for the Army
