Last few cycles have been 33, 30, 29, 27, 28 days, I’ve been tracking since off OCPs. LMP was Dec 30th and I’m now on CD 36. I started temping this cycle but was not consistent with time and stopped when I hit CD 28 because I figured it was AF time. I used OPK and marked it on my calendar on Jan 16th, with a question mark because I did it later so I might have been off by a day. We BD before this (cannot remember exact date) but then Darling Husband was sick so I’m pretty sure we didn’t on the day of OPK+ or for several days after.
So last couple cycles I get breast tenderness for a a couple days then cramping starts, and AF comes within 24 hours of cramping, and the cramping is usually for several days. So I had the breast tenderness starting yesterday and I thought cramping too, but no AF, and today I really don’t feel any cramping at all but still have the breast tenderness.
I’ve read many posts of women who have had an occasional unusually long cycle and kept testing BFN until finally AF came, so that makes me inclined to keep waiting for AF to show. I’ve been waiting even to post this, figuring AF would just come as soon as I posted, and then I’d have to update with disappointment. I’m pretty patient so I don’t have a problem waiting another week.
