How do you know if you are having a really really early miscarriage? My period was late, maybe two or three weeks and I have never had anything resembling a "cycle" so I'm pretty bad at keeping track. The Boy_heathen and I are in funeral service, and have been pulling 60/70 hour weeks and sex has been sort of on the back burner (and we are religious, well versed barrier users) so being pregnant wasn't even on my radar. No morning sickness, some breastfeeding tenderness, but no more than a regular period. But now I have started and I have a very thick, ropey clotted discharge, and I spiked a low grade fever this morning. Was I pregnant? Peeing on a stick wouldn't tell me anything now, would it?
