Menstrual Cycle Day 29


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining until the placenta takes over. The zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing larger every day. The amounts of hCG are increasing, and are definitely high enough to result in a positive pregnancy test. If conception did not occur, the amount of progesterone being released drops off due to the corpus luteum dying. The lining may begin to slough off.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline and may even steadily rise higher. 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. These symptoms are highly probable if pregnant. 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 and tan in color. You may have water retention, headache, moodiness, spotting and cramps. You may have bleeding start making this day 1 of a new cycle.

Okay so i have a 29 day cycle and today is day 29. sexually active during my fertility window because we've been ttc. feel hot most of the time which is wierd. normally feel cold 2-3 days before af so this is new. feel really gassy and see bubbling effects in my lower abdomen when i lie on my back. haven't seen any spotting so far and af is due tomorrow. tested negative 12dpo. really confused whether it's af or pregnancy. really praying dat af doesn't show up.
