@cbee:  I didn’t get a positive home pregnancy test until cycle day 57. Anything is possible! I’m now 6 months pregnant. I had given up and thought there was no way.

I had this happen once and it was an anovulatory cycle. it threw my cycle off very badly!

I hate the uncertainty! There is nothing worse. I am hoping you’ll get your answer soon, one way or the other. x

Another option might be to make an appointment with your doctor to have blood drawn to be tested.  While HPTs are something like 99% accurate nowadays, a blood test is the definitive one.

@cbee:  I’m in the same boat, sort of.  I’m 2 weeks late, also with negative HPTs.  I’ve never been this late or had an anovulatory cycle.

So confusing.

@cbee:  When I called my doctor at 48 days into my cycle they scheduled me an appt for an ultrasound to make sure it wasn’t an ectopic pregnancy.  I guess if you have an ectopic you sometimes don’t produce the hormone that hpt’s look for. You may want to call just to be safe.

Do you have any other symptoms?  With both of our kids, my boobs hurt like CRAZY and I was tired as all heck!

@cbee:  I got a bfp before the appt. They sent me for the ultra sound anyway for dating purposes since everything about my dates and cycle were so confusing.

The sore boobs was the tipoff for me with our second.  It was not period sore it was “HOLY HELL SOMEONE PLEASE CUT THESE THINGS OFF OF ME” type sore.
