So we proper went for it all the way through my fertile period and about a week later I started cramping x this was around the 17th and 18th

I have had continuous cramping since as well as headaches and feeling sick every now and then... My plan says I ovulated around the 16th but this time around i never felt it as I usually do.

I did 4 tests last week all saying negative and now have very sore breasts and so tired, also all the aches and pains of my AF coming but now I'm 3 days late. I last tested on the 29th x could I still be pregnant with the negative tests?

Might have already answered my question... Just done. A text and have the faintest line you can imagine xxx going to test again on the morning and see if it's my imagination or not smile

Sorry for my awful typing before lol trying to rush a post using an iPhone mid 48hour shift obviously shows lol

So.... I tested again this morning and there is an ever so slightly darker line. Wish I knew how to upload a photo x

I can't take it for real until I see something strong or from the docs x I've been here before x eeeek excited and nervous, waited 11 years for this sigh xxx

Just keep testing over the next week or so and the line should get steadily darker. It's really hard to get a false positive so it looks like it is very good news!

Making an appointment with the doctor today x tests are still very faint. Cramping and pinching is certainly going on, lots of side twinges x I just pray to god it sticks ...... Xx will keep you updated x

The doctors didn't really go to plan. I showed her my tests and she said she would have considered two of them negatives :'( one however is clearly visible but she still told me not to get my hopes up x

She also found blood test result from a few weeks back I had for food intolerances and shows I have coeliac's disease x how on earth I'll cope being pregnant (fingers crossed) and dealing with adapting to a gluten free diet I'll never know. X so much for the happy news day today

Oh Mj this is excellent news. Congratulations! So exciting.

So I am in a similar boat. I followed the Sperm meets egg plan this month (2nd cycle following MC). My first cycle after MC was regular (27 days long) and this cycle I tracked my ovulation, getting a positive OPK on day 14. We DTD as per the plan so plenty of times during the fertile window.

Anyway AF was due on Sun. I did a test on Sunday afternoon (dilute urine) and got a BFN. But AF hasn't arrived yet - My boobs hurt, I have twinges/mild cramps down below, headaches, need the toilet every 5 mins and am burping constantly!! I also just have this feeling that I am PG confused - its really weird. I feel very calm about it all. This is the first time I have felt this.

I told myself (and my DH insisted) that we wouldn't test until Sat. As you have proved, for some it takes a while for the HCG to build up (I know in my last PG I only got a faint line at CD31) so I am hoping that when I test at the weekend it will be a BFP!

Sorry to hear about you having coeliac's but at least you will be able to manage your diet so you won't get the symptoms you may have been experiencing - there are plenty of things out there these days that are gluten free.

Good luck and I wish you all the best in your pregnancy smile

Oooh that all sounds very similar smile if it helps even though docs have confirmed it I'm still not showing a strong visible line on the home tests xx

Good luck and please keep me updated xxx maybe we could move to the October club together xx I hope so x

Just thought I would keep you updated - AF got me today (5 days late!) Can't believe it, I was sooooooo sure! At least I know I can't trust my body anymore, only PG tests!

Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy x
