sarahfaye :  Do you chart or track ovulation? According to my temp chart, I got my BFP 2 days before my late period, but if I wasn’t charting I would have thought it was 10 days late. I have 28 day cycles and then my BFP one I didn’t even ovulate until day 26!

How are you determining you’re late?

Without temping/charting ovulation its very possible you aren’t actually late and just ovulated later in your cycle.

FWIW, I got my postive 11 days after I ovulated which was BEFORE I missed my period. Without charting like PP said, I could have thought I was 10 days late.

As others have asked, how are you tracking ovulation? 

FWIW, periods are never late…they arrive exactly when they are supossed to arrive, if you are not pregnant. What changes is your ovulation date or you don’t ovulate at all. 

You can only know ovulation via temping or ultrasound. Even OPKs only give you a guess and don’t gaurantee that you ovulated.

I’ve always gotten mine before my missed period….but I also track my cycle and use OPK’s. If you’re late and still getting negative’s, odds are you aren’t actually “late” but rather you just ovulated later than you though.

sarahfaye :  I got my BFP prior to when I expected my period, but I just wanted to chime in to say that I truly think we only got pregnant as quickly as we did because I was using OPKs. Had I just guessed when ovulation was based on my cycle I would have been way off!

All 3 of my BFPs were days (4,3, and 5 to be exact) before my missed period. To echo previous posters, you likely ovulated late. Fingers crossed this is your cycle!

I had a very regular 28 day cycle and got my bfp 6 days before my period was due.

I got positives 3 days before a missed period. I actually had better luck with the cheapie dollar store or dollar general tests than I did with the FRER tests (and believe me I took a ton of tests because I was sure I was pregnant). Can you try one of those?
