    Hi,
    After showing some possible pg symptoms, I wasn't sure if I was pg or not but the pg test I did over a week ago came back neg. Then, few days later, my lower back pain started getting worse and it spread all round to my sides and tummy, like 360 degrees. All I can liken it to is the first stages of labour, it was very similar to that but obviously not as painful as full on labour! An hour after that I started bleeding deep red blood for a day. I put a towel on but hardly any reached the pad, it was just when I wiped for the most part. Right before the bleeding started I had (sorry for tmi) a translucent stretchy discharge tinged quite heavily with light brown when I wiped. It felt like my lower body muscles were tensing then releasing and was quite painful.
    This is not a normal period for me so could I possibly have had a chemical? Or just a freak monthly? Prior to this I was feeling nauseous, headaches, very tired, mild cramping and lower right side tummy pain. Still have couple of these but I'm thinking I may have intestinal problems. I heard a chemical can be shorter than a normal period, I'm normally on for longer than a day.
    Thank you for any thoughts.

    Thanks sozzy, don't think it was, I had fresh blood a while after the light brown cm. Have never had that before, very strange. I just wish I knew what had gone on, it's messed with my head quite a bit, the not knowing. Thank you x

    I'm not convinced so I'm retaking a test today!

    Ooh good luck sozzy, hope you get your lil baba. Exciting times!
    I might do a test later but I'm pretty sure it'll be a neg because I did have quite a bit of blood when I wiped and I've never ever bled with any of previous pregnancies other than my mc :( just feel really confused as to what actually happened this month. Prob just a totally off month but it's the not knowing whether I miscarried. I suppose it'd be too late now to pick up any hpt that may have lingered (assuming they can after a possible mc). This bleeding started Wednesday x

    All the best to you Hun.. Don't give up yet.. I would really take a test!
    I was the same felt it was a no go this month, 4 days of red blood (spotting) needed a pad for one day and now I've just got my bfp- 1-2weeks it states :)

    Lots of luck and :dust:

    Thanks for replies. Saw the nurse last week and the Dr just now. Explained to him my strange monthly and that it was very very very unlikely I was pg but he's told me to take another pg test in two weeks. I guess I'll do it but really feel it's a waste of time, I just know I'm not. However, in two weeks time, if the test is neg he said I could go for a scan to see exactly what is going on. I've not seen any blood since that one day of bleeding and then it was only when I wiped. My cervix area still kinda aches and the pain in my lower right side of tummy still aches every now and then. Something is going on but I don't know what. I've ruled pg out so maybe it's a cyst? Do you think it could just be that? On an ovary? This waiting around not knowing what's going on is making me fret even more and I'm so snappy with my children and then I get tearful because I feel so bad for snapping at them :(
