I have a question, my period is late by a few days – I took a pregnancy test and so far it is negative. I talked with my sister-in-law and she said that when she got pregnant she tested a few days after her period was due and it came back – and she waited a week later and it was +. But, I have two things happening right now that have never happened before… #1) Usually before I get my period (about a week before) my boobs get really sore and swell up – this has not happened yet. It happens every single time – it is a give away that my period is coming – and my boobs are fine – I should of had sore boobs a week and 3 days ago. #2) My hips are hurting – both in equal amounts, on both sides (obviously), it is not an intense pain but it just hurts. I have had this hip pain for 5 days straight. All day and all night. Has anyone had sore hips before getting a positive pregnancy test? Please help, I am not a crazy symptom spotter – I have not been pregnant before and have heard of all the common symptoms – this hip pain is probably not one of them. And I know I don’t have a bladder infection, UTI, or STI’s. Have ruled that all out.

Are you using OPKs or temping to know for sure when you ovulated? Maybe you ovulated later than you think you did and that’s why your period is late. I’ve had every symptom under the sun, including hip pain, leg pain, knee pain, pelvic pain…you name, I’ve had it and I’m still not pregnant. Try not to let yourself get caught up in the symptoms. I know that’s really, really hard to remember (we’re on our 11th cycle and I STILL struggle with not letting every ache and pain make me “sure” I’m pregnant.)

Yes I have started temping in the last 2 months and my cycles have usually been between 32-35 days but this time my cycle is up to 56 days. It’s realy never been this off. I just don’t get it – its like a jinx that I strted temping and monitoring my fertility – I feel like I had a better idea of when I ovulate when I didn’t temp. It’s quite strange, but I am not too stressed about it. My fiance and I are to the point where: What happens will happen. It’s a great vibe. Thanks for your help Peffy.

Oh my goddess that’s exactly where I’m at! had bloods done as I’ve been trying a year so 100% know when I ovulated & am 1 day before I am due the dreaded AF. I’m a terrible symptom spotter, In my head I must be regnant every month… Obviously not. Since coming off the pill I have had very obvious pms symptoms. I always have terribly sore boobs, do much so I can’t stick wearing my bra!!! But this month nothing at all. They usually go up a cup size & I’ve got bra’s that I wear just during that time. But not this month, their a little tender on the outside but I usually can’t touch them!
Also this hip pain (as I’ve said I’m terrible for symptom spotting) & I’ve never ‘spotted’ this before. Other thing I noticed from my serial spotting this month was that I had, and this is way tmi but hey ho, after some fun with my other half I had a little pinkish discharge. Could have been from being a little rough, mostly likely, but could well have been implantation bleed?
Anyway, newbabybee was it a positive?
