Don't know if any of you can relate (I'm sure lots of you can) but was just so sure that this month I was getting a bfp.....no period (7 days late) but 3 bfns. Just very frustrating.

chocoloulou33 Fri 28-Dec-12 23:13:49

Don't give up hope yet. My friend didn't get a positive pregnancy test til 2 weeks after she was due on. U never know. Is it usually late? I'm always regular

MrsEasingwood Sat 29-Dec-12 00:08:00

Thank you, I'm normally regular to the minute lol. Maybe I've just worked myself up too much over it!! It is just so irritating especially when friends and family seem to pop them out left right and centre with ease sad

Sending u a big and very unmumsnetty hug. It's so frustrating isn't it? I can't help but get my hopes up every month, and when AF is late its even harder not to get ur hopes up. The dissapontment is sometimes just crushing. sad

Wishing u all the very best for a 2013 BFP!! smile

How long you been trying mrs?

I hear you. Sometimes you are sure this cycle is The One, everything ties up. You even have masses of symptoms. But the BFN just laughs at you.

I especially hate the cb tests that say "NOT PREGNANT" - they may as well put a picture of someone sticking 2 fingers up at u saying haha!! Soul destroying. <can u tell I don't buy them anymore>

Girraferama Sat 29-Dec-12 18:20:05

I'm also late by almost ten days and had 4 negative tests - I'm driving myself insane! Had convinced myself I was pregnant then got BFN again and again. I'm going to the doctors to see if they can do a blood test as I need to know for sure!

OrangeLily Sat 29-Dec-12 18:34:31

I can join u....

32 days last cycle
66 before that

Now on day 44 of current and no sign of AF. Negative tests the week before Christmas with a clear blue digi to compound the misery on Christmas Eve.

Thank you all for your support!
And whilst I hope you all get your bfps soon I'm glad I'm not alone.
Choco- been trying for 6 months now which I know in comparison to some isn't very long but just married just bought our house and baby was the next step.
Girraferama- I might do the same just to put my mind at ease
Orangelily course you can fingers crossed for you all xx

Girraferama Sun 30-Dec-12 21:05:49

Let us know how you get on...fingers crossed!

OrangeLily Sun 30-Dec-12 22:17:58

Thanks. Looks like we're in similar positions! It's meant to be part of the fairy tale right??? wink

MrsEasingwood Sun 30-Dec-12 22:40:06

Yep! Here was me thinking it was going to be easy, silly me! Not even sure whether I can have a drink or two tomorrow night? confused

chocoloulou33 Sun 30-Dec-12 22:57:22

Have a drink mrs or do a test in the morning!I will be having a few drinks, Can't let thinking I might be pg stop me. Have done that b4 & been bitterly disappointed. I haven't exactly got the fairytale as married, divorced & now with love of my life lol. Have a dd from ex & 2 stepchildren but wouldn't change it for the world as am finally happy. Been trying 4 months but yep thought it would happen quicker. Hope it happens soon for you.

OrangeLily Sun 30-Dec-12 23:38:21

Test tomorrow and have a drink. You've got to live right?

I've got a test for tomorrow but have absolutely no hope but at least then I can make all the yummy cocktails I'm planning on!

MrsEasingwood Sun 30-Dec-12 23:53:04

You're both right! At least I can drink in the new year smile
How long have you been trying orange?
choco as long as your happy its a fairy tale ending
Sometimes I do think that maybe I'm trying too hard as DH keeps telling me, does any of you feel like that?

OrangeLily Mon 31-Dec-12 00:45:16

Don't laugh but only 2 cycles (three months) but came off implanon in August and only had three periods since!

Although my SIL said there's a difference between trying and TRYING. She is adamant that if you want a BFP you have to do things the proper way. Every two days religiously, no drinking at all, legs in the air, eating really well, etc. She appears to be a master at it too! My body is a temple as of 2am tomorrow.

How much do you reckon you've spent on tests then?

MrsEasingwood Mon 31-Dec-12 00:57:16

Any amount of time trying is hard though!
I did all of that for the first few tries but after bfns I decided it didn't really make too much difference. I think that come jan 1st I might start again though, I bought what to expect before you're expecting and it said you should spend at least 12 weeks getting your body ready which sounded like a lot to me!
Probably about £150....sounds like a lot now I think about it oops

OrangeLily Mon 31-Dec-12 01:03:13

150 pounds does sound bonkers but it adds up so quickly. I can't believe how much they cost. It's like a woman tax!

Sounds like a good book, think il have a peek on amazon and invest.

MrsEasingwood Mon 31-Dec-12 01:20:38

They are so expensive and im too much of a wuss to buy the cheap ones in case I get a false reading, I know that sounds daft but I prefer to buy the CB dating ones so when (if!) it finally happens I can see how far along I am. And not to mention the conception tables and fruit and veg it all adds up and that's before I'm even pg!
It is a good and worthwhile read lots of tips for him as well! I found it really useful.

chocoloulou33 Mon 31-Dec-12 01:31:23

This is my 4th cycle. I don't believe u have to do everything religously for a bfp, ppl get pg everyday without doing any of that. I sure did when I last got pg. I do think it increases your chances so whatever works for people smile

bundle4me Mon 31-Dec-12 11:28:46

Hey, sorry to gatecrash your thread girls, hope you don't mind. I'm in a similar position too but I'm only a couple of days late with a couple of symptons.... Oh and a BFN at the weekend! I probably shouldn't have tested so soon but I was too excited - What a slap in the face the BFN brought! angry

Rasberry, I couldn't agree with you more about the tests that say 'NOT PREGNANT'. You're at least a lot braver than me, the boxes alone intimidate me! I use the ones with the lines but even then I almost go cross-eyed trying to convince myself I see a second line!

Mrs , I really hope you get that BFP. Keep trying! Hopefully there will be a lot less bums under pillows, legs in the air and sympton spotting for us in the New Year! Fingers crossed girls! thanks

I use eBay/Amazon cheapies most of the time.. if I see something I break out the FRER (First Response), and a day after seeing a line on a FRER I break out the digital. Works out a bit cheaper and I get to wee on sticks as much as I want.. also means more of a gentle letdown with a BFN too as you can always "oh it's still too early" right up until AF appears.

First Response's website sells five for £8.99 at the moment, as somebody posted on here recently. Got mine a few days later. Complete and utter bargain!!

Good luck to everybody!! (me included.. heh. Only 2dpo though and that really IS too early!!)

I'd say it was safe to have a drink tonight too.

MrsEasingwood Mon 31-Dec-12 14:28:57

Well ladies I took your advice and did one last test this morning and got my BFP grin
Hope you all get yours soon!!!
