Don't want to do a test :(

I'm so mixed up and don't have anyone to talk to. I feel so sad. sad

My period is definately a week overdue, possibly 3 or more as I can't remember exactly when the last one was. They've become a bit less reliable than they used to be and are so light they barely register anymore. Hormone changes due to my age I think (I'm 40 now).

My husband and I started trying to conceive several years ago but sadly nothing happened. Then as hormones started to change nature became cruel and PMT symtoms became more and more like being pregnant. I spent a small fortune on pregnancy tests each month only for period to start straight after testing. The emotional rollcoaster was killing me, so I got off it and resigned myself to not getting pregnant and to be honest, once I passed 40 I thought the ship had sailed.

Now I feel terrible, can't sleep, get up several times in the night to pee, my breasts are so sore on the outside and achey on the inside. I know I need to do a test but I can't bring myself to do it. I feel like I'm kidding myself and I can't cope with the hurt of being back on the rollercoaster. But I want to know. But when it says negative I'll feel like such a fool. Again. sad

It's probably all stress related anyway. sad

WOW!!
Any longer & we would've seen you pop up on 'I didn't know I was pregnant'!!
What's your due date?

ps. Terrier driven sled sounds awesome, for a pregnant lady, would be a great way to rock up to hospital in labour!

She's put due date down provisionally as 30th April but it will be confirmed at the 18 week scan. They don't do the dating scan here.
