We just started TTC but its only been a month, I am 8 days late today and i have bad back ache and cramps like i was going to come on for 4 days and but still no BFP, should i just forget it for this month and just realize my AF is late? or is it possible to still be pregnant?
my head is telling me i am pregnant because im tired and crampy and moody but i think im looking for signs. google is going to be my worst nightmare!
any help ? thanks bees.

I am by no means an expert, but I would guess that you are not pregnant. I would think that if you are eight days late, your test results would be very accurate. Maybe your cycle is just off this month? Did you just come off of BC?

@chelseaRichard: I have no idea what any of your 3 acronyms mean lol. This may sound dumb, but take a pregnancy test if you’re not sure?

How do you know that you are 8 days late? How long have you been off the pill?

Were you on birthdontrol prior to TTC?
At 8 days after your period you should really be getting an accurate test result.
There are rare cases where some women dont get BFP’s during pregnancy, but more likely your cycle is off for one reason or another.

It sounds like you ovulated late this month (if you did ovulate, but no reason to think you didn’t). I think all you can do is wait for AF and take a test every few days to check.
From your question, I am assuming you aren’t charting temps or other fertility signs, right? And you are late based on your normal cycle length?

Perhaps if you O’d later than you thought, then you could be pregnant but not as many dpo as you think hence negative tests still. Hope you are!x

I hope so for your sake 🙂 but the others have asked good questions… have you been tracking your regular cycle, or are you working off a ‘usual’ 28 day cycle? If so, not many of us have them!! Have you come off the pill recently? If so, you might just be regulating.
Unfortunately, it seems as soon as we start TTC, we suddenly become aware of every twinge, cramp and mood swing 🙂 It’s all part of the ‘fun’… good luck!

I wasnt on birth control from nov-may thank to for a fun deployment 🙁 but i did start it in april again preparing for when he came home but i just didnt like how it made me feel so i stopped and we decided not to go back on.
I looked back and i was 28 days cylce, 29, and 28, so it was strange to be late again and like you said hamikay you become very aware of symptoms. i wasnt charting or taking temps, i will give it 6-12 months to happen then will start.
i think i might just chalk this month up to being late and nothing more because its driving me crazy!
