I am now 9 days late but have no BFP sad
I did a pg test early morning on 3rd Jan = BFN. I then did a second pg rest after work on 4th = BFN. Both tests were 'first response - 6 days earlier'.
I'm now very confused and worried. Really thought I was pg but now not so sure.
I have no AF symptoms either. Very tired and struggling to concentrate, bloated stomach, occasional cramping and have been peeing quite a bit. Have felt a teensy bit queasy occasionally but why the BFN?
Has anyone been through this and got a BFP eventually?

I've only been off the pill properly since beginning Oct and Dec was our first month of trying (paying attention to fertile days etc). I don't know why I thought it would happen straight away but when I missed my AF I thought 'wow, this is it!'.
Not so sure now. Think I must be having one of those anovulatory cycles or whatever. My AF's have always been so regular in the past though <wallows in self-pity>.
Just want my AF now so I can move on. Still have an app at Docs Monday but don't know if I can face hearing what I am dreading - I'm not pregnant I.just have an 'issue'. sad

now eating ridiculous amounts of chocolate to console myself.

P.S. I must also be the only person who doesn't even get an evaporation line!

mrsstewpot Wed 09-Jan-13 18:15:56

Good work Jelly!

Chocolate will help Blue. Sometimes you just have to embrace feeling down. But it's not over yet - I will remain (annoyingly) upbeat and positive for you!

Can you imagine what it was like before pregnancy tests? When did they become widely available? Did our parents have to just wait and see?

Good luck all. Keep strong.

I really do appreciate everyone's support. I've said it before, but it really helps to.share smile

not read all the thread, but I was 20 days late. normally always bang on time. and got a BFP,am now 10 weeks pregnant.

It does mean my dates are all screwed up, but got an early scan which confirmed 6/7 weeks pregnant, when I would have been 8/9 I think. but will get due date when I get another scan in a week's time.

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Wed 09-Jan-13 18:45:45

I have now read it and feel bad for posting, as I got a positive outcome.

the limbo was the worst bit, but sometimes it does work out.

Hi Yellowsnow
No it's great to hear all aspects. Did you test before your BFP at all? smile

yellowsnownoteatwillyou Wed 09-Jan-13 18:55:03

did I test, oh yes I did indeed.about 10 pound shop tests, 2 clear blue and about 4 asda a ones. the day my pack of 20 tests from eBay arrived. I got BFP.

Wow, i'm way behind on this thread now! Based on how the ttc threads normally go, i thought id try and summarise where we all are - So i think we now have the following people who are all late but still hopeful until AF arrives - Have I missed anyone? And did I manage to get any of the stats right?

Bluefreckles - AF due 29/12 (now CD 40)
Purplefairies - AF due 31/12 (now CD 43)
Purplepoppyseed - AF due 3/1 (now CD 35)
123234345 - AF due 31/12 (now CD ??)
Jellybeandavey - AF due 31/12 (now CD 41)
Girraferama - ??

Blitzy and Weewee both had examples where AF eventually arrived but Mrsstewpot, yellow, weewee's colleague and I've just found out one of my colleagues all had BFP's eventually.

I'm still not going to get too excited especially as you are all way further overdue than me, but I'm still keeping fingers crossed for all of us just in case!

Just bought a test, a clear blue digi one even though I wanted first response but Sainsbury's didn't have it hmm just stopping off at Uncle Sams for some comfort food haha

JellyBeanDavey Wed 09-Jan-13 19:47:18

Nice one, an Late AF bus! I like it wink

PharmaGirl Wed 09-Jan-13 19:47:33

Hi all, got my AF yesterday which was 6 days late & it was my worst 1 since coming off the pill since August, nearly keeled over with pain, & AF was bright red ( sorry if tmi) but it only lasted a day?? Nothing today except feeling nauseous, bloated & have a pain on my right side?? &#128542;Anyone else had this?

JellyBeanDavey Wed 09-Jan-13 19:50:32

Pharmagirl, I haven't had that before. Every single period I've ever had have last 5-6 days or more, even after I came off the pill in October x

PharmaGirl Wed 09-Jan-13 19:56:19

Jellybean was having 3-5 day Af before this one, but more like the ones u have while on pill more brown then red! Didn't mind getting Af yesterday as my cycle was getting better 28,42,35,34 & straighting out, don't know if its stress related or my mind playing tricks?! x

JellyBeanDavey Wed 09-Jan-13 20:07:47

Testing.... 3mins wait....[hmmm]

JellyBeanDavey Wed 09-Jan-13 20:11:02

PharmaGirl Wed 09-Jan-13 20:13:03

Boo &#128547;what's your cd?

PharmaGirl Wed 09-Jan-13 20:14:02

Stupid face sorry :-(

Girraferama Wed 09-Jan-13 20:15:59

Thanks for the summary! Mine was due 21/12 so I'm well behind the rest of you sad I tested again on 4th Jan with a BFN... Think I may be in the definitely-not-pg group.. Unless I end up like one of the mystery ones who finds out at 20 weeks! Ahh if only..

JellyBeanDavey Wed 09-Jan-13 20:16:20

I'm on cd41 lol Monday will be 2 weeks late.

bluefreckles Wed 09-Jan-13 20:20:11

Jellybean - you and I are having a rubbish evening aren't we sad

As someone else said, we're not out until AF rears her ugly head. smile

Girraferama Wed 09-Jan-13 20:22:00

I might be being stupid but is cd the number of days since last period? In which case mine would be 50!!! Doesn't look good sad

bluefreckles Wed 09-Jan-13 20:23:06
