Honestly, I would test. But that’s because I would want to test. If you think potentially seeing a negative is worse than waiting it out, you should wait it out. Basically only you can decide whether you want to test or not.

And I’m so sorry for what you’re going through, I really hope this is it for you!

@heathaah: I really can’t even imagine. I saw my aunt struggle with fertility issues for years and it wore her down to almost nothing. She ended up adopting and is convinced her daughter was destined to be her daughter. My best friend has endometreosis and when she found out in high school (when she obviously wasn’t even TTC) she fell apart. Since then I’ve always said I’d be a surrogate for her. I really do hope this works out for you! Everyone deserves a happy ending!

I think you should test. I’ve got my fingers crossed for a BFP for you. I know you’ve had a long road. If you’re afraid to test at home, go to the doctor. I have seen a lot of women still test negative after AF is late, and still be pregnant. It’s more common than you would think.

Your symptoms are similar to what I had at first. I had allergy-like congestion, nausea, cramping and bloat along with swollen, heavy breasts (they started to hurt a couple days after). I felt like my period was coming too, it just never did. I also had an ache in my lower back, some pretty awful gas and frequent urination, probably all due to me swelling up like a balloon.

@heathaah: From what I understand, the heartburn is usually a later in pregnancy thing.

My breasts weren’t painfully sore at first. They kind of had a dull tenderness (it started on the outside of my breast, closest to my armpit and them seemed to move across.) at first, not actual pain. The breast tenderness was actually the symptom that made me go “Oh man… I’m pregnant.” because I never get sore breasts with AF.

I don’t know how long your cycle is or how regular it is, but you should be late, right? You said that AF should have come Wed or Thurs.

I haven’t been trying as long as you have, but I do know how breaking seeing a negative test can be. Seeing “not pregnant” or a no line is like a slap in the face. So if I were you, I’d wait a few more days. It seems like you’re late now, but do you know how long your normal LP is?

I really really hope this is it for you. I can’t imagine your emotional state right now; but if I were placed in your situation, I would probably test… I’d probably be a wreck if it was negative, but I would be a wreck while waiting too (I’m a planner and not knowing kills me). So I’d probably choose to get it over with instead of being a wreck for days.

Then again, it wouldn’t necessarily serve me right… I had 4 negatives before I tested BFP, only at 4 days late – so you might see a negative test for nothing if it’s too early to detect. IDK..

Whatever you decide, keep us posted; we really want to see that positive test result.

@heathaah:

Oh girl, I’m still pulling for all you guys. You know I know how you feel so I’m not sure what to say. Having been there I would say wait but also the other side of me says test bc I feel you are late enough. Since you haven’t been on Clomid are you cycles evening out?

Test, girl! I really hope this is it for you. I kinda have a good feeling… It just all adds up.

We all know how these things can go. But you’re a strong woman, and if it is a BFN, I know you can handle it just fine.

Thoughts and prayers and baby dust! Go POAS!
