AF or Pregnant signs? Brooke Cumberland TTC since Oct 2013; 1 child; Wisconsin 420 posts

I just got off the pill last month & my period started Oct 17th. I was on the pill where I got my cycle every 3 months and they lasted for 4-5 days. I never had AF signs except maybe irritability but other than that, I just knew it came every 3 months on a Wednesday. AF is supposed to come tomorrow. I took a test yesterday and it was a BFN. However, with my DD, I didn't get a BFP until I was about 4 days late. The early signs I had were late AF and heartburn. I have been having back aches and tenderness in my left boob. These signs I have never had for either AF or pregnancy. It is really weird - either AF is coming soon or I am pregnant; but a part of me has a really hard time believing we got pregnant this cycle. We got pregnant the first month with DD but that's b/c we BD'ed a lot. We only did twice this past month, so I'm skeptical to believe it will happen right away. Obviously I know it only takes one time, but I guess we will see soon if AF shows up or if we get a BFP :D

No one can help figure this out. You were on the pill so you could now be pregnat or not. BUT your first AF will be difftemt when you first get off.



So you are having some signs but also the same signs you would have after just getting of the pill. Good luck I hope it goes in the direction you want.



I think it took me 3 months after stopping the pill and one of my friends the first month and two others 4 months... so it just depends

Well Dr.s always say don't expect to concive in your first months off the pill. Then think of all the people who miss one and get pregnact. So you never know, just give it a few more days.

We weren't trying last time but I screwed up and didn't take my pill when I was suppose to so I was just going to stay off for a month and go back on after I got my period except it never came! I was on the pill for 7 years, one month off & bam pregnant! Doubt that it'll happen so quickly now that we are actually trying... But who knows, we'll just wait & see!
