Menstrual Cycle Day 26

publishdate
12 Comments


What is happening internally?

If conception occurred: The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining. The zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing larger every day. The amounts of hCG are increasing. If conception did not occur, the amount of progesterone being released begins to drop due to the corpus luteum dying. The lining may begin to slough off.

Outward symptoms:

If conception occurred: basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline. Cervix may be low, firm and closed, or slightly raised and softer. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. You may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions and fatigue. If conception did not occur your basal body temperature may be dropping down due to the corpus luteum dying. Cervical fluid may be creamy to watery. You may have water retention, headache, moodiness and cramps.

My period was due on dec 27, 2014, but i had unprotected sex 6 days before on the 21st, which caused me to be 2 days late. i started bleeding on dec 29th through jan 4th for 7 days lightly, which is unusual because i have a regular 28 days cycle until then. i am not sure what's going on.

I'm on cycle day 26. my breasts are so sore and full, and the veins are standing out. i'm getting cramps like my period is coming ,but i'm a day late. i took a morison's test and got a bfp! then, to make sure i took a clear blue digital and it said that i'm 2-3 weeks pregnant! i'm so happy and in shock. my main symptoms are sore boobs, cramping after eight, and mild cramping with full feeling. it's taken 7 months with only one ovary, so keep on trying ladies. i'm wishing for baby dust for all of you and keeping my fingers crossed as its early days.

I came on my af on june 23-25, 2014, i began to have light bleeding (bright red) but very light bleeding on july 13-17. i barely used 1 pad per day. this morning there was another spot of pink mucous in the toilet paper. i will test on 8/1 because i had a blood hcg test on july 3rd which was negative. i believe i ovulated on 7/7 and implanted on the 13th, 6 days later. i'm not sure, but my dh and i have been having sex regularly since 6/25, and only stopped because the spotting started on 13th-17th. my fingers are crossed.

I was on depo for 11 yrs and 4 months, and after going off i began ovulating. anything is possible however we are still trying with no results. we are now starting fertility monitoring.
