So I’m a regular stalker of this board, especially since my husband and I decided to begin TTC last month… I guess it was more of a NTNT month for us though because we didn’t really go out of our way to make anything happen… ok enough rambling… here’s the thing.
AF was due today, and she never showed. Exciting right? No not really. I tested this morning on a $ tree test and it was negative. I’ve never been late a day in my life & I think it’s strange that the month we decide to try I’m late! I’m not getting my hopes up though because I’m sure AF will show tomorrow and then I’ll be disappointed. I did have quite a few symptoms that could technically be considered pregnancy ones … super tired, headache like 4 days in a row, and tender swollen breasts, plus some slight cramping… but I feel like those could easily be AF symptoms as well! This sucks! Ok I feel better now that I’ve vented… Just needed to let it out!
Did any of you have to wait a while on your BFP’s?

It could take a while for the pregnancy hormones to show up in your body – so yes, you could be pregnant and not get a positive right away. I think even for anyone with a normal period even waiting a few days after you expect it will give you clearer results (even tho a lot of the tests say they can tell you days before your missed period). So just relax for two or three days and then retest. If you don’t get a positive in a week you may want to call your doc to get a blood test done.

oh yes, quite possible 🙂
I was a few days late before getting a BFP – funny thing: I just went for my first ultrasound and baby is measuring a week behind. There were only two times that cycle where a pregnancy was possible 😉 so I feel now like I know it was the second time, which was a week later than the first. (So I just ovulated a little later than I thought)
I’d wait until you’re a few days late and test again.

@camrie: thanks for the advice thats what i was thinking too!
@lilsneakers: thats neat that you were able to narrow it down. I thought there was only one time this cycle that could have resulted in pregnancy… but i guess if i ovulated a little later that would make since that its not showing up on a test yet! time will tell i guess!

I’m in the same boat as you….I’m a week late but also it’s my first month off of the pill and I am fairly stressed. I took two lined tests but nothing there and am thinking about buying the digital test here soon….but my strangest thing is I have no symptoms either way

@Ireland: good luck to you!
Still no AF here. I’m going to test again in the morning and see what it says =) DH keeps telling me that I am and he’s super excited. I’m trying to keep him level headed lol. So we shall see.

@WiLLowTreE: test again!
this actually happened to me last month – i was almost TWO WEEKS late – has never ever happened, got 5 negative tests, so i knew i wasn’t, i guess I was stressed & over-thinking it or something. now my schedule is all screwed up! oh well…
GOOD LUCK! let us know what happens!

@WiLLowTreE:Holding out for you! Good luck! My first month of TTC and only 2nd full month off BC (last year) I was a week late and then averaged about 30-31 day cycles from there on out when I was always 28.

Not pregnant. AF showed up Friday… after I had one of the girls at my work scan me and right before I was going to the lab to get a quantitative HCG. HaHa funny I know… but I was freaking out because that has NEVER happened in my 23 years of existence! Lol I was So0o0o relieved when she showed just because I thought something was wrong with me! =) Anyways DH and I are excited about trying again this month! Thanks ladies!
