Just mentioned to hubby about getting a test and he said he thought you couldn't tell until about 6 weeks!

I tested again this morning and another negative. I think I'll try and wait a few days now. It's the not knowing I don't like! I'd rather my period came than just be guessing. It's weird because I'm never late and I showed a positive really early with DS - maybe it's my body playing tricks on me?

Keeping everything crossed for others waiting. smile

soultrain we are in it together!

af has always been perfectly on time for me and I'm now 3 days over. tested 2 days ago and trying to wait it out.

As I said, I mentioned to hubby about getting a test and he almost laughed at me for being silly, but this is all so new to him!

Going to try and wait a couple more days before forking out for more tests (if I can).

fingers crossed for everyone.

My DH thinks I'm crazy. He has suggested three things this morning:

1) I'm pregnant but the test won't show because its too early despite it being a very good test this morning
2) my period is late so just wait and see when it comes. Helpful

3) I've gone through the menopause. I'm 30.


I'm going to try and wait until the weekend, what's your plan Shoe? This has totally taken over my BH weekend!

same here soultrain. We are now on our way to the beach so trying to forget it today. Will buy a test on way to work tomorrow and try again then if still no sign of af.

trying to remain grounded and tell myself its only 3 days over.

shoegal84 Mon 26-Aug-13 11:00:33

Oh and men are hilarious!

SoulTrain Mon 26-Aug-13 11:14:05

Enjoy! We're off to the beach too - what will be will be!

SoulTrain Mon 26-Aug-13 12:22:10

Period has started! Good luck Shoe!

shoegal84 Mon 26-Aug-13 16:00:17

Oh no, sorry to hear that. We stopped on way to beach to suncream. hubby popped into boots and I waited in car. He came back out and had bought me 2 pregnancy tests. Bless him!

Should I test tonight or is it best to do in the morning?

SoulTrain Mon 26-Aug-13 16:14:59

I'd wait until the morning if you can, I know it's hard. Well done your DH!

BNmum Mon 26-Aug-13 16:54:32

Sorry to hear that soultrain.

Fingers crossed for you in the morning shoegal

shoegal84 Mon 26-Aug-13 19:35:34

definitely waiting until the morning. Fingers crossed!

shoegal84 Tue 27-Aug-13 07:02:59

So, I've barely slept all night as been so excited about testing and...a bfn :-(

I'm now 4 days overdue. What's going on?

BNmum Tue 27-Aug-13 09:40:40

Ach! That's rubbish, sorry to hear that. Did you use OPKs this cycle shoegal?

shoegal84 Tue 27-Aug-13 09:51:31

I've been using cheapies but have never had a positive result. Got clear blue ones now for next time.

hubby was away alot this month anyway so just dtd when we could!

shoegal84 Tue 27-Aug-13 20:50:52

Still nothing either way. Think I'm going to try and wait until Friday to test again if still nothing.

BNmum Wed 28-Aug-13 12:14:51

Good idea shoegal, how do you feel? Do you have any af or pregnancy symptoms?

shoegal84 Wed 28-Aug-13 17:31:02

I've been really tired but not sure if that's because I've been busy. I've also had hiccups loads but not sure if that's a symptom.

shoegal84 Wed 28-Aug-13 18:01:00

It's funny isn't it that you notice all kinds of stuff and wonder if it's a symptom. It's just weird as I never get hiccups but had them 3 times in the last couple of days.

Think I've actually convinced myself that I'm not pregnant as surely the test would have shown by now? Just guessing I'm on a long cycle, but it's just frustrating for getting my hopes up as af has always been regular as clockwork.

shoegal84 Thu 29-Aug-13 18:37:41

tested again today and got another bfn. tomorrow will be a week late for af.
Any thoughts? No idea what my body is up to.

shoegal84 Sat 31-Aug-13 08:36:05

Another day, another bfn.

blamber Sat 31-Aug-13 09:41:18

Sorry for bfn shoegal. Maybe you ov'd late or you had an anovulatory cycle. Really annoying, but it does happen now and again.

shoegal84 Sat 31-Aug-13 10:03:50

That's fine if that's the case, annoying but fine. But just wish af would hurry up and get here so we can carry on trying!


BNmum Sat 31-Aug-13 18:57:13

Just checking in to see if you had any answers shoegal, sorry to hear that you are still in the dark. You still be in with a chance if you had delayed ov and continued dtd though.

shoegal84 Mon 02-Sep-13 07:14:16

10 days overdue now and no symptoms either way. I go on holiday on Saturday and I was meant to be ovulating so was looking forward to spending a week of dtd.

Just wish I knew what was going on.

How is everyone else getting on?
