Ok, right now I’m 2 days late and still no period. I know how long my cycles are so it’s odd that it’s late. I haven’t really been stressed and all the other reasons that periods are late, really don’t apply to me.
I just hate late periods. I think there is a 90% chance that I am not pregnant but still I hate late periods because it makes me stress out that I’m pregnant.
I haven’t taken a pregnancy test because I think it’s too early and I don’t think I am pregnant. I trying not to think about it but I just can’t get it out of my head.
So trying not to think about it… trying not to think about it…

If you’re late it’s not too early to take a test. Put your mind at ease and just take a HPT. If it’s positive, go from there. If it’s negative, at least you know.

@firsttimemom: Well, see I considered that but then I seen people get false negatives because not enough hormones has built up yet. I read around and some people didn’t get a BFP until 5 weeks into their pregnancy. I just think that if I took a test and it was negative that it would still make me worry still that it was wrong.
Plus, I only have 5 HPT and I kinda don’t want to waste it. lol Yeah, i’m nuts!
I think I just need my period to come today and none of this waiting crap. haha

@BlueDolphin: You don’t have to wait 5 weeks. You can take a test the day you are officially late. It’s recommended to take the test in the morning because more hormones are in the first urine of the day. They make tests for before you’ve missed your period and they are acurate, so take one now and chances are the result is correct. Good Luck.

Tomorrow or the next day, get yourself one of those “First Response” tests or whatever. Most of them come with two in the pack, so you can take one today and one the next day. If one or both of them is positive, you can get yourself down to Planned Parenthood at your convenience for a professional test. I think you’ll feel better if you’re proactive.

@BlueDolphin: You ONLY have 5? Hm, for me I took it the exact day my period was due and it only took one to give me a positive.

@firsttimemom: Yeah, actually I forgot I have 4. I bought a 5 pack a couple months ago and figured I could use them since we were going to start TTC at the end of the summer. But that has now been pushed back.
Do HPT expire?
I guess I wanted to use them while we were actively trying. It’s like one of those things that I really don’t want to know the answer. haha
Ok, well I thought AF came but it still hasn’t. Hope it comes sometime today. If not, I’ll test tomorrow morning.
The one thing hate about scares like this is the phases I go through. First, it’s I can’t be pregnant, we can’t afford it. Then it’s well, we might be able to make it work. Then back and forth. At the end, if I’m not pregnant, I’m sad that we aren’t because I convinced myself it would be okay or glad that we arn’t. Wow, this mix of emotions.

I know you are already married, but I am currently engaged and every month at that time of the month I go “PLEASE DONT BE PREGNANT OR YOU WONT FIT INTO YOUR WEDDING DRESS!” without being late. I know what you mean about worrying for being barely late. Maybe you’re late because you recently have a new lady friend you spend time with? Women will try to menstruate together, so maybe you’re just delayed because your body is trying to “tune into” a new co-worker, room mate, or friend?
