Did your doctor give you any reasons for why he/she thinks you are pregnant? That seems strange to me – a doctor telling you that when the test was a BFN.

If you generally have a 35 day cycle, and a normal 14 day luteal phase (the time between ovulation and when AF starts), you’d ovulate around CD 21. Which if you are 3 weeks out from your last AF, would be about today. So if you are JUST ovulating now (+/- a day or two) there is no way to know if you are pregnant.

The first thing I would do since you do have long cycles is start charting. It will tell you when you ovulate. Many doctors assume everyone O’s at the same time, around CD14, but that isn’t true for a lot of women (myself included). If you are BD’ing around CD14, but don’t ovulate until CD21 or 22, then your BD timing is totally off. So, start charting. It really helps figure out when you are ovulating and thus when to BD

It’s definitely possible it’s just too early to tell–There’s still 2 weeks left in your cycle!

@Glasgowbound:  +1

 

I just want to add that even if you did ovulate this past weekend (3 days ago, right?) the fertilized egg/blastocyst has yet to implant and will be traveling down the Fallopian tubes for another week or so. So even if you did o and fertilize an egg, you won’t be “pregnant” for at least another week and you’re also not releasing any hormones to give you symptoms out of the ordinary yet.

 

FX for you though. 

 

btw, they make test strips for utis now, they’re great of when you’re not sure!

@papercrafter:  Well, the most important thing is that you’re not out until you’re out! Just try not to symptom spot, you’ll drive yourself nuts. Haha, trust me I know! And hey, the first month I used charting and the first month we TTC’ed (almost a year apart) I drove myself totally crazy because I had all the symptoms. BFN. The month I got my BFP (this month, yay! haha) the only symptom I had was no symptoms. My boobs didn’t hurt  and I didn’t have the usual cramping in the TWW. So go figure. ; )
