I really couldn't figure out the right place to put this so I hope its not too far off the mark.
Since having kids (I have an almost 4 and almost 2yo) I have had really bad heaviness in my vagina at that time of the month. Usually only the first 48 hours then it settles down, but during those 48 hours I live off Nurofen. I have had 5 periods only in this nearly 5 year period due to breastfeeding and pregnancy and it has always been 2 heavy days, 1 light day and 2 days spotting.
Anyway today is day 21 of my rather regular 28/29 day cycle (always either one or the other, never longer or shorter) and for the last 48 hours I've had moderate heaviness down below.
We DTD on day 10 of my cycle and going by CM I ovulated around day 14 (I think EWCM day 12, 13, 14 and wet day 15, thoughts???) so although we are not technically "trying" we are not exactly being too careful either. But I do think it would be a long shot to concieve as CM wasn't exactly swimmer friendly at the time of DTD, thick but would stretch up to 1cm before breaking.
I do doubt the possibility of pregnancy (we can all dream though) but does anyone else have issue with heaviness (think brick trying to force its way out of your vagina) when it is not time for AF? I've never in my life had heaviness not associated with AF and am planning on asking my Obstetrician when I see him in a weeks time (to ask if it is safe to conceive due to minor issues with pre-eclampsia with my previous pregnancies- hubby's idea so we can rule it out if Dr doesn't agree it's safe and discuss permanent contraceptive measures). We have not technically decided on yes or no at this stage and were both happy when I conceived last month and the month before (both lost at 4 weeks 2 days- chem preg)
Can it be a sign of pregnancy? Or just my body being stupid after 2 chem pregnancies in as many months?
Thanks guys if you got the end of all that rambling and still have some info to offer
