I am trying to get pregnant and I started my period 6 days early and it only lasted 2 days (it was heavy though). I also had brown discharge before and after. I feel pooched out and bloated so I don't know what's going on. I have taken 6 preg tests...all negative...which I could have taken them too early idk they were cheapies. What do you think?

  • I was always told things happen when you aren't thinking about it. I would include the brown discharge before and after as part of your menses. The brown is blood. I was wondering if you had any cramping or pain that you don't normally have with your normal period. I would just wait and relax. Go and have some fun. Cheapies worked better for me than going to the doctor and having the test done. I was on birth control when I got pregnant with my second daughter. I received two tests, three months apart from my doctor and they both showed negative. The ones I took at home showed positive every time. I was officially pregnant at an abortion clinic- an ultrasound that said I was 19 weeks and 5 days along. I obviously had her and don't regret it at all!!! Good luck and remember to relax and have fun!!

  • lilkitti--What is wierd is I have had cramping on and off this whole month...even a couple of weeks before my period. I took another test this morning and it was a cheapie but it looked like something was there in that second line that I had not seen before so hopefully it will be good! I'm off to the doctor today to find out what's going on though...and to be sure. Thanks for your answer!
