It happened to me once a few months back… I had a 45 day cycle. I tested at day 40, got a BFN and just waited until AF showed up. I didn’t feel pregnant so I didn’t bother wasting more tests. Are you testing with first pee of the morning or after your urine becomes concentrated? There’s still certainly the possibility though and there just isn’t enough of the hormone yet to indicate a positive. The only thing is I wouldn’t assume your on CD 3 though. Could be you just ovulated a little later this month due to stress or what not.

This happened to me a couple of years ago, before DD. I was pretty regular, 28-29 cycles, and then BAM I was TEN DAYS LATE. Then AF arrived. Sometimes your cycles get thrown off for one reason or another, stress, illness, etc. But I have heard of people taking forever to get their BFPs even after day 1 on their missed period ๐Ÿ™‚

Somtimes you can just have a longer cycle, you probably ovulated later than normal.  No, it’s not CD3.  You can’t have CD1 until you have red AF.

If you have unprotected sex you could be pregnant, I’d probably wait another 3-7 days and take another pregnancy test if you don’t get AF by then.

You could be pregnant or you could have ovulated late causing period to delay. Don’t assume missed period and cd 3

independencewave:  Two days late is nothing! I was 2 weeks late once and I was sure I wasn’t pregnant. It happens.

independencewave:  I’m right there with you! I have 28-29 day cycles. August was 30-day cycle and I was freaking out. I took two tests and both were negative. I was still waiting for AF this morning and I finally was yelling at myself “will you just decide to be pregnant or not?!” and then I got to work and Aunt flow joined me…

independencewave:  After being on birth control for five years and always having a 28 day cycle, I randomly had something like a 57 day cycle.  I was going absolutely crazy not knowing if I was pregnant or what was going. But on the 58th day, I started my period right as I should’ve for that month.  It can happen, and it causes a lot of unnecessary stress!

I had a 36 day cycle every month getting off bp which is long enough.  Then the past two cycles i have been 42 days and 44 days!  BFN..  I’m pretty sure it was due to stress for me, but all of this just adds to stess…its a vicous cycle
