Hi. My name is Amanda, I am 24, me and my partner have been TTC for our 1st child for about 7 months. It gets really hard seeing negatives all the time. But the last few months I really had my hopes up- Now my cycles are really regular- except when I went off the pill- i was about 2 weeks late (maximum) for 2 cycles. Then went back to being regular.
Then I had my last cycle on the 7th of August 2011, and was due for my next cycle on the 3rd of September (27 day cycle) but I got all excited cos I was late, even though I was getting negatives, was reading up about false negatives. And I skipped my period for 3 months, and was not til yesterday that I finally got my period. I am not that disappointed or anything, mainly just relieved I have answers, But I have never ever skipped an entire period- let alone 3 like I just did. Everyone kept saying go to the doctors but I was too scared to, because I was getting negatives at home, and I did a blood test when I was two weeks late- which was negative of course and the doctor told me to come back in December if I had not gotten my period yet. I was having many symptoms of pregnancy too, which was really confusing- I was bloated, had cramps (this was weeks ago), Excess discharge, frequent urination (not a urinary tract infection), sensitivity to smells, some nausea, frequent mild headaches, Moodiness, more emotional and for a week I had sensitive nipples, and my breasts have gotten bigger! so I really have no idea why I had all those symptoms plus the obvious- no period. then got my period yesterday (30th October). I am worried that 80 something days will now be my new cycle, but now I'll have no idea when to test, I wont know when i am late or not. I am really over seeing negatives, and part of me doesn't want to TTC any more because its taking its toll on me emotionally.
I also am scared to go to the doctors cos I am terrified they will tell me I am unable to have children, or have PCOS or something. I havent told anyone that, but everyone keeps telling me "go to the doctors" but I don't want to say the real reason as to why i don't want to. It's just really hard, especially having so many people around me pregnant (My house mate is actually pregnant- almost 39 weeks.. but I am more excited for her and for the baby to be born then be anywhere near jealous or anything)
I don't think I have a question or anything, just really needed a vent, and explain my situation. I find it so odd that I skipped 3 periods, when nothing has ever happened like that for me, latest I ever have been was 2 weeks- and that was straight after coming off the pill. But It was exactly 12 weeks between cycles for me.
Anyways thats about all. lol
