    I have, two or three times. For some reason ever since last Christmas, my cycles have been really wonky. Every few months it’ll add an extra week (or two, to really freak me out). We’re pretty careful with birth control, and thank God I’ve never actually been knocked up, but it’s really starting to weird me out. I’ve been regular as clockwork since I started getting my period, so this is freaky for me.

    *raises hand* On multiple occasions (I’m not permisicusous just paranoid) I also often bribed into buying tests for my friends in college. I don’t know WHAT the pharmacy clerk thought about me :-/

    I’m in the habit of taking one when I’m on my second pack of pills (I take three packs in a row without having a withdrawal bleed, then go off for a week) just to make sure. Not getting a period every month doesn’t really freak me out, but I test just in case.

    Last november my period was just not showing up, we’re always safe but having a few friends in Med-school I’ve learned to accept that anything can happen.

    I was still in scholl and freaked out big time. Fi doesn’t live in town and only visits on weekends so I was trying to come to terms with what was happening before telling him. I didn’t take a test I was so scared I kept saying ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’. I did every single trick I found online to rush your period and eventually it came. I told Fiance afterwards, he was shocked I didn’t tell him sooner.

    And yes I have – once- I was a day late but had ” a feeling” . and the test came back with PREGNANT. .  . . I got the blue digital that just straight up tells you pregnant or not pregnant.

     

    It was a blessing in disguise , that ‘s for sure.

    Im in the middle of a really stressful grad program and right around finals, a clinical, and a part time job, I guess I got stressed out enough that I got my baby-making equipment out of whack. It hit me one day after summer finals when I was soaking up the sun in my bikini by the pool and was like “wait…but…how…when..last…oooooh…SHITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!”

    Jumped up, threw on a cover up, and drove to Walgreens. Had a total sobfest meltdown waiting until I had to pee, thinking I was going to have to drop out of grad school and put off the wedding. 

    Test was negative. Got my period less than 6 hours later. Ridiculous.  ๐Ÿ˜›

    Once, when I was 19. I was 2 weeks late. I’d never been more relived as when I saw a “Not Pregnant”. It really wasn’t the right time for a baby, and most definitely wasn’t the right guy.
