Hello everyone, hope everyone's well. I was after a bit of advice please. Me & BF started talking about ttc this year I'm 31 and he's 33 so at new year thought we'd dtd and give it a go. I've never been totally on top of the length of my cycles but know they usually come around the 15-17th of the month whatever that means! Last months was 15th and no AF this month. I've been having some mild cramps but no blood which has never happened before. I've also been totally stuffed up in the nose (no idea if this is relevant or not but I have no cold ?!) and super sore nipples at night time. I'm really confused if it's signs of AF late or something else so I did s boots test a week ago which came up as negative in the left box but invalid in the right hand side control panel. I just put it down to AF probably being on its way but still no sign. Has anyone else been in the boat before? Now I am stressing out that I have irregular periods just as we are ttc. Help!

If you tested a week ago, and no AF yet, definitely time to test again.
Remember to use first morning urine. I find the first response ones the most accurate as the digital ones can easily not work and its SO frustrating!
Let us know how you get on. X

Thanks for your reply. I've never been this late before and I know I definitely ovulated late December so something is up. Maybe the excesses of Christmas have caused AF to go into hiding as I can't believe it is a BFP on only a couple of gos....! Will get another test at lunch x

Yeh even with diluted afternoon pee you're far enough past your last period due date to show a positive. Fingers crossed! Keep us posted. X
