AF and the flu?? Or…

Something weird is going on. My body is being…weird. Either I’m coming down with something and getting my period at the same time..or something else.

What a tease.

I’m trying not to think about it. I have to admit I did a little googling but I didn’t overdue it.

So here it is. Yesterday and today (9 and 10 DPO) I spotted. It was off and on throughout both days, but last night it was enough for a tampon, and now there’s nothing. Without getting’s not my full period yet. Also, I always get cramps with my period. No cramps. In addition, my temp hasn’t dropped. It hasn’t exactly risen either much, but it has not dropped.

The weirdest part of all is how I feel. I feel like crap! Both days, I’ve had no appetite. I didn’t eat dinner at all last night…and I’m not one to skip meals. Have a bit of chills…but basically it’s an overall yucky feeling. I still go to work and all. I just definitely don’t feel right. Like I said, I thought I might be coming down with something. But wouldn’t it be here by now? And what’s up with this spotting??

I’m still holding out until the weekend to POAS, for sure. And though I’m telling myself to chill out and not get my hopes stomach is in knots. I’m nervous!!

    My pregnancy symptoms often feel a lot like I’m coming down with something at first. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. Hang in there. I know how hard it is to wait to test, especially if you’re having suspicious symptoms!

    Oh, this period of time is so hard! The phenomenon of implantation bleeding is particularly difficult to contend with….is my period coming? is it implantation bleeding? WHICH ONE IS IT?!?! I am sending you implantation bleeding energy 🙂

    Hmmm…those are definitely good signs. I don’t know anything about temps, but the no cramps are good. And slight bleeding early on can definitely be from implantation. It happened to me. I agree with Curly Sue though, hold out on the POAS if you can. Even though home tests are accurate, if your hormones haven’t built up enough, it’ll show negative. At least you’ll have a blood test soon, so you’ll know for sure. Good luck! I’ll be thinking of you!!!
