Now what??

My sincerest apologies for the sheer volume of TMI and visuals that are coming up. If you're feeling squeamish, it might be best to turn back now.

AF is toying with me and I don't know what's going on. Yesterday I started, or I think I did. The blood all looked old (kinda sticky dark brown/black in the pad, light brown when I wiped), and there wasn't much at all (enough to use only one pad for the whole day, and I probably could have gotten away with a liner). I thought for sure it would hit full force overnight, as CD2 is always heavy, but when I got up, to my surprise my pad was pure white as the driven snow. Today I have what I'd describe as somewhat/considerably more CM than usual, and it's brownish pink (very light when I wipe, and yeah, I reached on up in there and it's slightly darker when I "scoop" it out).

So of course I'm thinking two things: 1. Maybe I'm knocked up! :) and 2. Maybe the herbs my acu gave me this month jacked me up! :(

Other stuff going on: I'm somewhat crampy and my boobs hurt pretty bad. Oh and I have a little headache. If AF hasn't "officially" started, today would be CD30, 15DPO.

I'll test with FMU in the morning if my flow hasn't picked up considerably by then. I'll let you know how it goes. And I'm sure if anything changes today I'll be back here going on and on about it.

If AF is only messing with me I just might spend my three day weekend crying! Or shunning my diet and drinking heavily. Or both.

I am crossing my fingers for you.

You have described how all my periods start ever since Greysen. I've asked my dr. and he said it's a hormonal issue. So either way positive or negative it does mean something is changing for you in which case I wouldn't give up on your accupuncture or new diet.

Good luck!

I'm hoping it means that Kitty will be drinking some virgin cocktails over the 4th

Dude screw waiting until the morning, I'd POAS now! Your levels should be high enough to not need FMU. I'm waiting. . . . .LOL

Let's hope you are PG!

If not, I had the same type of cycle; my TCM diet and herbs made CD 1 and 2 so light. You should have bright red blood, though, just not a whole lotaa cramps.


I say you are PG. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
