I don't think I'm pregnant but I'm not sure, I'm late and I experienced spotting today which is very unnatural. I never have spotting when I get my period but I'm also pretty sure its too late for it to be implantation bleeding since that occurs like 6-12 days after ovulation but I've also heard that some woman don't even get implantation bleeding when they are pregnant...so I'm really confused and not sure if I'm pregnant or not. I took a clearblue pregnancy test yesterday and it said I wasn't pregnant and that brand is suppose to be very accurate..Really hate the waiting game. Anyone have any advise for me?

Repeat the test in a few days with your first morning urine. Follow the directions carefully. It may seem simple, but the time at when you read the test is important.

Yes I am trying to conceive for the first time. It seems I have started my period so I am not pregnant but I don't normally get spotting so when I saw that I thought it was odd. I'm also trying to find a better job because I'm stuck working with a temp agency and they only send me to factory's with really demanding hours and lots of blankets of dust which isn't good for me or a baby if I do conceive. I even worked at one where the machine if you touched it right would shock you but there was no warnings or anything. I also noticed I get really obsessive during the waiting period wondering if I am pregnant and I can't seem to think of much else. Any advise on how to calm down during that time? And Thank you I appreciate any and all advise and support.

Thank you Sarah E I just feel I've been playing this waiting game for weeks already its very frustrating. I will see what happens and if my period still doesn't show up I will take the other test in the morning in a few days. I have almost no symptoms aside from fatigue and slight nausea which could be anything and only happen when I am at work. And now this spotting which is just odd. I had spotting like this once before several months ago but it was darker and more like period spotting and not something I normally have and I think that was actually a very early miscarriage although I can't confirm that its just a theory. Thank you though.
