What happens before your period? ☮Hippie Jesus☮ 2 kids; West Virginia 10560 posts

What are some signs that when you have them, you KNOW your period is coming. Usually I get bloated... and then cramps about 30 minutes before it actually starts. But that's pretty much it.



Going on 5 days late for my period and it's frustrating!



The only thing abnormal that I'm noticing is that I am extremely tired... I slept in this morning and still had to take a nap this evening. And I'm pretty tired again now.



I hope I either get a period or a + soon... This is ridiculous!

I am suuuuuper cranky for about a week before, and then I have a bad headache the day I start.

The week before I crave chocolate, I get super bloated and get a lot of discharge. Gross I know.

I feel like I haven't slept in days, I get really bad headaches and I feel like I am starving all the time.

I had been testing every day since 8 dpo and stopped testing every day the day my period was due. Since then, I've tested every day or two days... and still negatives. If I don't have a period by Sunday (7 days late), I will be taking another test and then if it's still negative, I'm going to get a blood test. This is so frustrating!



I don't even feel like I'm about to start... no cramping. No bloating. No headaches. None of that.

According to every test I've taken, no. There was one test that I took that I swore I saw a line... even IRL. My husband even saw it. But I haven't gotten anymore lines since then and I've gotten a negative on a digital as well.



Here is the test that I'm talking about. A lot of people say they can't see anything... I know the lighting sucks and the quality isn't great because it's my webcam... But it was there IRL. But nothing since. It's so confusing. It was a couple of days before my period was due.

not really sure whats going to happen after this baby (im breastfeeding and onoly had a period once so I am not sure if its going to be irregular or even will come again anyway...) but before i had my first son i cramped pretty heavy right before and preetty much through out (day 2 and 3 were the worst though)
but after i had my first son and my period returned the cramps were REALLY bad only before the period stared..for couple days i had pains shooting down my right leg =/ but once i got it...it wasnt very heavy and sometimes i could even forget about it....

I see a little something I had blood test say negative and then 3 days later another blood test say positive. Good Luck I see you are TTCing I know it has to be a bit frustrating. I would try not to stress but call ur doc tomorrow and see if you can arrange to come in Friday or Monday and get a test done. If your 5 days late would Friday be a week? If you are you would probably get a pretty accurate result by friday or monday. Baby Dust :D

Well, I'll be 5 days late tomorrow morning... so almost 5 days. I figure I'll wait until Monday... Take my last test on Sunday and see how that goes.
