Hi all! I had started a post last week about a faint BFP, but was having tech issues, and realized there was nothing to be seen in the pic, so just pulled it down. Well, here I sit three days late with no AF and BFNs with every test. I started testing 3 days before AF was due, and have spent an ungodly amount at this point!
I had what I’m pretty sure was IB 11 days before AF was due (it was the exact same spotting as IB with my first little one). But that would be 14 days ago now. Wouldn’t a test be positive at this point? What the heck is going on?
Has anyone had to wait to get a BFP until well after AF was due? I am going crazy! I can’t spend any more money on tests! I have no signs of AF coming, and am still having passing nausea and dizziness. I figure I’ll test again this weekend, and if nothing, I’ll call the doc for a blood test.
This is just so weird. With my first little one I got a blazing BFP the first day after AF was due!!

Are you charting or otherwise tracking ovulation? It’s possible you just ovulated later than normal!

I’m not tracking anything. We’re actually not TTC but would be super happy if we were preggo!

i got a first BFP 15 dpo, which was 3 days after AF was due. (I chart and usually have a 11 or 12 day LP). Unfortunately I had a chemical a couple of days after that. I did some research and if you implant after 12 dpo, there is a high likelihood of the baby not ‘sticking’.
fx for you!!!

It’s possible that the bleeding you had was related to ovulation, even if you never had it before. My guess is this is a wonky cycle and AF isn’t really late – you just Ovulated yet and thus AF has been pushed back.

@CityBearBride – sorry to hear about the chemical! If I actually am preggo, that is my biggest fear!

My BFP was very late. I don’t want to offer too much hope since my first appt isn’t until later this week, but this was my timeline:
First day of last period: 11/25
AF due: 12/23
BFN: 12/24, 12/31, 1/3
BFP: 1/10, 1/11, 1/12
The only thing I can think is that because my cycles weren’t regulated after stopping birth control, I must have O’d much, much later than FF predicted. All of the online calculators say I should be 7 weeks but I don’t think I’m anywhere near that far along!
Fingers crossed for both of us!

Has AF ever been this late before? My cycles vary between 30 days and 42 days. I chart my cycles so AF is never really “late” anymore since I can see when she’s expected. I always thought I was KU before charting!

@babytms: What tests have you been using? I did get my BFP before AF was due but only because i used a first response 6 days sooner test, if id have stuck with my regular wondfos i wouldnt have gotten a BFP until 6 weeks (i tested every day). If theres still no AF/BFP in a week i would see the doctor
