I'm 3 days late. Did test this am. Negative. What do I do now?

misstiggiwinkle Thu 06-Mar-14 18:54:16

No idea... I'm in exactly the same boat. Marking my place as I'm keen to hear the advicesmile

Wait and see, frustrating but not any other option. How regular us your cycle?

patch77 Thu 06-Mar-14 19:34:22

Every 29 days

I'm 2 days late, BFN too!
Going test one last time tomorrow morning before I leave it to Monday. Just want an answer now!
Good luck ladies! xx

I'm 6 days! And still BFN :/

What kind of test are you using?

If using a blue dye test, wait two days and then test with a pink/red dye test, as these pick up the hormones more accurately and less likely to give your an evaporation line.

If using a red dye test, then wait two days (to give the hormones chance to double) and then test again.

If there is still a negative, you could go the dr's but i doubt they will do much. Or just wait for either af or a bfp. Its not uncommon for cycles to lengthen for no particular reason.

Good luck

I've used sainsburys and first response, may wait till Sunday/Monday now and test1st thing n if not hold off.

Thanks for your reply.
I think first response was pink so I'll get that next
Or do you recommend clear blue?

I'm 2 days late x

patch77 Fri 07-Mar-14 19:08:28

Thanks for that cookie. Mine was a blue one, Tesco one. Should I go for clear blue?

Missmc14 Fri 07-Mar-14 20:34:29

I've heard first response are best patch there pink I believe
Good luck

First response is a good one to use!

I have only used a clear blue when I already knew I was pregnant just to see the words blush

Have you taken vits or been trying long? My cycles gone from 28to 32/33 lately due to b6 in vits finally kicking in giving me a longer LP.

Did you ovulate later than normal? X

Not this time bfn sad

Needtochillax Sun 09-Mar-14 16:40:23

Hey ladies. Can I join! I'm 2 days late and am normally as regular as clock work. Have taken 3 pt all of which have come up as bfn sad have been trying ttc #2

I've used first response and clear blue as tesco's own is always sold out. Must be a popular month ;-)

I guess I am going to have to wait a few more days and hope af doesn't show up. She is being very mean this month!

I'm also symptom spotting like mad. My boobs are a different kind of sore and I am getting a lot of discharge, which I read could be am early sign of pregnancy but once again is it just wishful thinking?

It was so easy first time round sad

I'm in the same boat as you Needtochillax. I'm normally between 24-28 day cycle, but I'm now at day 30 (at least). I've never went past a 28 day cycle. 2 cheap pound shop tests showed the faintest of positive lines, but I had to squint and wonder if those were evaporation lines. A Boots test today was a BFN - no faint line at all.

Was unwell for 3 weeks since just after last months AF (headaches and dizziness) so am wondering if this is why I'm late. My MIL had said at the time that perhaps I'm going through the Menopause. I'm 38 - cheers for that!

We've not used any contraception since our ds was born 5 years ago. I would love another child, but I feel that if I was actually to get pregnant it'll be a miracle. So annoyed at my body playing tricks on me and anxious that I could be going through the early change of life sad

Needtochillax Sun 09-Mar-14 22:08:30

Hi bettergetamoveon,

If there is a faint line maybe you are?? I can remember the line with my first and I did not see it, my husband had to point it out to me! During my evenings of googling I've also read that digital pregnancy tests are not as good as traditional tests at detecting early pregnancies. Was the boots test a digital one? Just wondering :-)

bettergetamoveon Sun 09-Mar-14 22:50:43

chillax - the faint lines were all on traditional tests and showed up AGES later. I have another Boots test that I'll do in the morning. I'm so used to being disappointed that I'm really not trying to get my hopes up.

Hope you have some good news tomorrow - do you think you'll test?

This is torture!

bettergetamoveon Sun 09-Mar-14 22:51:17

Sorry, meant to say the Boots ones are also the traditional type.

Needtochillax Mon 10-Mar-14 00:05:31

You're right, it is torture. I'm going to leave it a couple of days before I test. Although I am off to the supermarket tomorrow so may not be able to resist temptation. Trying not to get my hopes up either. Been ttc for just under a year. Let me know what the results are in the morning, its nice sharing this stuff with someone! Fingers crossed :-)

bettergetamoveon Mon 10-Mar-14 08:08:32

BFN sad
I'm definitely not testing for ages now. There wasn't even the faintest line and I'm now at least 3 days late. It's apparently a Boots 99% accurate one that you can use early. The last time I was pregnant I knew before I tested that I was and I got a positive 4 days before AF due.

Will keep you updated. Hope you have better results when you test.

Needtochillax Mon 10-Mar-14 15:32:42

Didn't need to get a test when I got to the supermarket as I came on instead. Fuck. Came home with sanitary products instead of a pt :-( keep me posted on your progress bettergetamoveon, I hope at least one of us gets some good news

artylady14 Mon 10-Mar-14 15:35:23

I think I am on the same day as you (17dpo?) and I used First Response early result at 13dpo and then confirmed pregnancy with ClearBlue Digital at 14dpo. The cheapo test strip only started to have a faint line today. It may be too soon depending on the tests you are using although I don't know the Boots one. Maybe try one of the two I mentioned again and you may get a different result. Good luck.

bettergetamoveon Mon 10-Mar-14 16:31:52

Aw I was rooting for you Needtochillax, so sorry to hear your disappointing news. It's just horrible our bodies can play tricks on us sad

artylady - if nothing happen today then I'll pop out tomorrow and buy once of those fancy tests. Congratulations to you! Let's hope I'm joining you (although I don't feel positive).

Needtochillax Mon 10-Mar-14 17:08:07

Thank you. I have kept positive and have bought a pack of cheap ovulation strips on ebay. No point dtd unnecessarily next month wink
Hopefully that will help us on our way.
