  • Yes! I did. We started TTC in late December 2008. I had a period after I stopped the pill, right around that time. Then, NO PERIOD for over 3 months! Docs were checking me, we were planning for fertility treatments, figured we were in for a long road. Then in mid-April I get a period for a day and a half. And May 9 I found out I was pregnant. It wasn't implantation bleeding - I wasn't far enough along according to all my ultrasounds.

    I am so grateful for our son, but I can't help but wonder....WTH was going on in my body during that time?

  • Ugh, I really don't remember! I have always had very light flow and I don't remember it being any different. It was just strange because it was so short.

  • yep! I thought I was pregnant and went to see my doctor for a blood test. I had a lot of the symptoms. Test came back negative. a week later I had my period, at the time I didn't realize it was two weeks early. six weeks later I found out I was pregnant. I'm convinced I was pregnant at the time I had that period.

  • Could be implantation bleeding, I hear that happens though it didn't happen to me. Good luck!!! If you are that late, an HPT should give you accurate results.

  • I didnt' know I was preggo for 3 months LOL. I had a sort of normal period in Aug. of that year then Sept. was strange and didn't last long, and Oct. I finally clued in. I thought it was screwed up with stress of my then BF moving to California and starting a new and difficult job at work.
