Hi All,
Thanks for taking the time to read my question and potentially answer it!
So let me start of by giving the details:
My last menstrual cycle started on February 10th,2012 and lasted four days. I normally have either a 31,35, or 38 day cycle (35 day being the most common) but at times it can be 22 days at random as well.
So after the four days, we waited a week before having unprotected intercourse, therefore the week of the 19th and onward we had regular unprotected intercourse.

I am on cycle day 39 and AF seems like it's nowhere to be seen. I have had mild cramping on and off throughout the days & have had a little bit of lower back pain. I've noticed my breasts have enlarged/are sore, and my nipples are very sore to the touch/when I shower. I also notice the nipple is very dark, like a purple in color (as if there is less blood circulation). I have been extremely exhausted, trouble falling asleep, and very very impatient and irritable and I wake up twice in the mornings with a FULL bladder. ALSO, I have checked my cervical position and it is still fairly high(sometimes hard to find) and there has been far more Cervical mucus than when I normally am expecting my period (usually it is very dry).
I tested with a clearblue +/- test this morning and got a faint positive for five minutes and then it went away.
This is very confusing and has been a little stressful. I have been under a little bit of stress too, so maybe that impacts it. I kept feeling like my period was going to come because I would get some dull cramping, so I have been walking with pads/tampons but the cramps only occur a few times a day for a short amount of time and then they are gone.

Thank you so much for reading this long and detailed rant.

All the Best,

Hi kero,

Congrats on your pregnancy.  Now it's time to see a doctor, to start giving that baby a healthy start.

I've included a link on pregnancy that might be helpful

To update, I took another test this morning on a First Response Easy Response and although it was faint, it was positive. Hopefully this will be a healthy and happy pregnancy :)

All the best,

Thank you Daisy.
The pregnancy would not have been planned but is definitely welcomed if indeed I am pregnant.
Thank you so much for answering my question, hopefully I can get some more replies from others with similar situations :)

All the best,

Hi kero,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Anytime you have unprotected sex you are at risk of an unwanted pregnancy.  You might had been on your fertile days.  It might be good to wait a few more days since your cycles are very irregular and retake a pregnancy test.  If you are still concerned it might be good to see your doctor to confirm if indeed you are pregnant.  If you are not pregnant, It's also important to talk to your doctor about birth control.

Here are some resources for you
