my dh and i have been ttc for almost one year. my past af was only 1.5 days long (heavy day one, normal day two and then brown discharge to barely there day 3 and 4). i have taken a few hpt and they said neg. however i feel as though i have pg symptoms, bbs are sore, tired, dizzy... now I have a pain on my right side as though I was working out? what could it be??? i am not due for af until 12/11. i guess it could be ov, but i usually feel when i am ovulating... i don't feel that now, plus i have very water cm.

be careful because you might just have an ectopic pregnancy...definitely go to your dr soon.

I thought of that....would i have any other symptoms...such as feeling "sick". it is on my side, but more toward my back.

r u having any brown discharge? my periods r sometimes like urs. i am not sure about the right side pain. it can be anything like cyst, fibroids not necessarily ectopic preg. in ectopic preg u will bleed heavily. when was ur period? do u think it was ovulation? don't be panic, call ur Dr & ask her to order blood test to confirm abo preg.

maybe you should have it checked out you could have appendicitis ??

Thanks neha, my last period was 11/14, but that was the one that was 1.5 days and then i had brown discharge for the next two days. No brown discharge or blood since that day. my bbs have been sore and I have been dizzy on and off. The pain on my side (toward my back more) just started today, but it IS NOT unbearable. It feels as though I worked out or was sitting in a bad position (although I wasn't doing either one). My periods are usually pretty heavy for 4 days. It is possible it is ovulation since I should be ovulating now, but as I mentioned, I don't feel like I am ovulating. I can usually feel it. any suggestions? i am expecting AF 12/11. I may wait until then to see what happens.

ck, would i be running a fever with appendicitis?

Here's a good site on Ectopic pregnancies:
safe than sorry. Also, here's a link discussing symptoms of appendicitis.
Good luck. I hope it's neither of those. I hope you feel better.

Sorry, I just checked the first link, the one to the ectopic pregnancy site & it didn't work. Here's a link to the home page,, for symptoms just click on medical information & then "what are the symptoms." HTH! Keep us posted.

Mega: Thanks for the information.

Mega: I was actually reading the ectopic preg. website earlier. I don't really have enough symptoms for it to be ectopic. I also looked up the appendicitis... my pain is more of a cramping and more toward the back than the pics are showing....but that DID help. I feel a little better now. I'll see how the days progress.

Hey i don't think it is ectopic pregnancy. don't worry dear. have u taken any medicines for the pain? does it stop after that. when i was pregnant last time (it was a miscarriage) my nurse thought it was an ectopic preg as i was continously bleeding & had sharp pains. when she checked it, it was not ectopic preg u can't even stand due to severe pain which don't subside even after medications. so i don't think that's the case with u. have a good sleep today i am sure u'll feel better. don't go on thinking too much about it, sometimes its just in our head.

Hi ladies... You don't have to have heavy bleeding nor do you have to have tons of pain for an eptopic PG..I personally know.. I could walk and stand..heck I even when on vacation..had no idea what so ever.. I was 5wks along when they found it and it was because I was bleeding ..I found out I was PG the week before.. Everyone is so different so please keep that in mind. You could also have a cyst as I get pain from them ..enough so that I end up in the hospital. But please go to the Dr to check out for an eptopic..they are serious..and like I said I could walk, be with dh, work, sit etc .. I did not have pain with it.. wishing you luck.. **Dust**

hi there. I had my son and had one period then my period was late. I did a PG test which was negative but I had some cramping an dsome light pink staining which lasted for a week or two. The PG test were all still negative so I didnt think I was pregnant. however, I collapsed whilst putting up our xmas tree and when I got to hospital they did and internal u/s and discovered I was pg and it was ectopic. They removed my right ovary and tube(which had ruptured) they had to remove the internal bleeiding( i nearly died). so any unusual pain should be investigated to rule out any problems. good luck x

Sandra..I am sorry to hear about your expereince.. I did not have any surgery for my eptopic.. they used methotrexate to abort as mine did not rupture..thank God. It is a scary sitaution and very sad at the same time..I look at it that it happend for a reason (as I look back in that time in my life it would not have worked) that lovely spirit that I would have had then hopefuly will visit me again.. we have been trying for 8yrs and have a wonderful 9yr old.. I am so thankful for her.. Things happen for a reason. **Dust**

hey ladies,,i was reading this post, and i seen that u ladies mentionied a ectopic pregancy? what is that? if u have time to answer this i would be greatful! thanks

sometimes the egg gets fertilized in he fallopian tube & fails to travel to the uterus. it grows in the fallopian tube & has absolutely same symptoms as that of preg. in the uterus. some women have heavy bleeding & sharp pains, but for others its absolutely normal pregnancy unless it is detected thru sonogram. it is very dangerous to that women. sometimes the fallopian tube ruptures & requires to be removed which reduces the chances of conceiving. i hope this was helpful amamda.
