Don't give up hope completely, but personally I find it slightly easier to cope with if I tell myself I'm not pregnant. Huge task I know, but more often than not it is just a late AF for whatever reason. I for one don't think positivity necessarily works in this situation. It's in the hands of mother nature and positivity can cause you to have a massive kick in the teeth every month and then it's hard to pick yourself up. Having said that, many women are slow to build the hormone and they say until your AF shows you are in with a chance... Good luck staying sane and hope one or the other turns up. (I find doing exercise or having a bonk usually brings AF on and I'd rather be put out of my misery) x
Hi English, I'll echo what AllChat said, don't give up hope but dotemper your expectations.
Same thing just happened to me actually. Period due Oct 7th. Tested day of, got BFN. Tested Oct 8th & again BFN but still no AF. All day Oct 9th & no AF, so I was a bit hopeful. AF finally came in the evening.
So on to Cycle#4 with me.
Good luck and hopefully you have better news than me!
