I’m on the exact same place as you. I’m at CD 40. My RN friend freaked me out a little when she said “maybe you’re one of those women who have negative tests for the entire first trimester.” OH MY GODDDD…

misswhereami :  Yeah…I’m not going to attach the link so we both don’t have repeated freakouts.

My cycle is very regulary. Operates like a lady army. So for me to be missing AF is really unusual. The last time I missed my period was getting really stressed out about graduate school interviews.

Ugh. I’m here holding your hand electronically over the internet.

When was the last time you tested BTW?

misswhereami :  It definitely takes the body a little time to adjust when coming off any hormonal birth control. How are you tracking your cycles? Have you tried charting your BBT? It’s really pretty simple – you buy a basal body temperature thermometer, take your temperature every day at the same time when you wake up, and you plot that temperature on a chart. Post-ovulation your body temp rises because of the progesterone hormone released by the dead follicle on your ovary after it releases the egg, so charting your temps will let you track ovulation based on any symptoms you may have and what your body temperature trends are. I’d recommend heading to fertilityfriend.com and downloading their app onto your phone to maybe try it out and read more about how it works. I have longer irregular cycles too and it’s the only way I can figure out what my body is doing. As for being the girl who’s pregnant and getting negative HPTs…..it’s really rare. Everyone seems to know someone who’s had that happen to them, but in reality it seems to be more of a TTC urban legend. It’s possible, but not probable- don’t get your hopes up for that! lol If you’re having a ton of watery CM right now it could be because you’re leading up to ovulate or are currently ovulating. If you decide to chart your cycles with your BBT you should join the Charters of the Hive thread – we have a lot of charting knowledge in there as well as a lot of support to give while TTC! GL hon!

I had about 6 cycles of 32-34 days, then a 30 day cycle, a 45 day cycle, a 30 day cycle, and then I got pg. Try not to worry or get too frustrated:)

I was temping. I didn’t want ovulate until CD35…got my BFP on CD49!! It can happen…I had lots of watery and creamy CM just prior too.

misswhereami :  every year of so I get a really long cycle 60+ days and a really short cycle 21- days… its annoying but quite common the rest tend to fall between 26-34

I alway end up getting my hopes up even though I know better… my tip, go for a blood pregancy test – sods law always kicks in and I start my period as soon as I leave the doctors, its like my body is just messing with me

misswhereami : During the first year after I got off of BC my periods were regularly 40+ days long. I wasn’t TTC at the time so I wasn’t too bothered by it (actually it was nice to have my period so infrequently, haha) but now that I am TTC I could see how annoyed I’d be. It went on so long that I honestly thought that was my cycle length until they shortened to 29 days. When I asked my doctor she said it was totally normal for my cycle to be wonky for that long after going off BC. No advice but I totally get it. Finger’s crossed you get your BFP soon!

misswhereami :  I am in the exact same boat. I have had regular 27-29 day cycles for almost two YEARS. I’m currently on CD45. Roughly 10 BFNS sitting in my trash can. Called my doc and she said its typical for someone with PCOS. yell When I tried to express my concern about it NOT being typical for me I was more or less blown off. There are no signs of AF and aside from cramping in my right ovary no signs of being PG either. And let me just admit I am bitter over it right now.

I feel your pain…Currently CD 37.  I “thought” I ovulated with solid smiley on the clearblue on CD 22, but obviously not. Also got a super positive OPK on CD 30 which didn’t make sense to me.  Who knows what’s going on, I just understand how frustrating it is to have these long cycles.  Mine go anywhere from 35-45 days typically.

bosley2016 :  Have you taken a HPT? There was another woman who had something similar happen with multiple “peak” O Days and she was actually PG.
