Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

Let me summarize your situation: You are trying to get pregnant and have a history of irregular cycles. You have had some recent variation / heaviness to your cycles, but now are experiencing abnormal spotting, nausea, fatigue, and one-sided cramps.

Give the irregularity in your cycles, there is likely similar irregularity in terms of when you are ovulating. it would potentially be dangerous for you to assume that you are not pregnant. Some of the symptoms that you are describing might raise concern regarding the potential for an ectopic pregnancy. So here is what you need to do:

1. You need to perform a pregnancy test
2. If this test is negative, you need to call your doctor on Monday who should repeat the test and talk to you about your symptoms.
3. Discuss with your doctor concerns regarding your heavier cycles and breakthrough spotting - an exam and possibly ultrasound are indicated.
