My AF is 8 days late.
I have some symptoms- smell of coffee I hate, feel sick, tired.
Sometimes I have similar pms symptoms but not to this extent and obviously being as late as I am....
Tested 3 days ago in the morning and last night in the evening and they were negative
When I had my son (born 2011) I knew at about 4 weeks and I had a early miscarriage in March and that was about 4 1/2 weeks

I would of thought it would be positive by now....

Anyone had/having similar problems?

Thanks x

Hi Jennifer, yeah me too. Been ttc casually since Jan but becoming a bit obsessed about it...thought I was pg (3 days late, massive boobs, could swear they were darker, did a test wa positive) then yesterday felt minor period-pain type discomfort , today bleeding. Made dr appt, took hubby but def period. Feeling crap now. Feels like everyone else just manages it!

Hi both,

I'm the same. 9 days overdue and tested negative today sad some pregnancy symptoms so really thought I was. The problem I have is my AF can be delayed so it could appear some point this week thought I have a gut feeling I am hmm

Been trying to conceive since January and every month I get my hopes up although today is the first time I've actually tested.

Thinking of testing again tomorrow but then think I should just wait.

Peckhr- that's tough with a positive I can imagine how heart crushing that must have been ((( hugs )))

Thanks Pulledapart33. It's easy to focus on the test being everything - but it won't change whether you are pg or not. Wait a couple of days then do test again? Or a different brand? The waiting is the worst though, esp if you're impatient like me! But even a positive test doesn't mean that the result can't change. Life is so fragile.

Couldn't tell dr about positive test as hubby was there and hadn't told him, so looked like a bit of an idiot haha but reasoned that if I was then I'd want to know if there was a problem.

Gonna give it a break for a couple of months (got a couple of weddings next summer) and then try again a bit more focused like ovulation monitor etc in Jan. In the meantime I'm going to enjoy some wine and focus on the positives....! Hope you both get the results you want soon X

Very impatient so did a first response test this morning. It was negative sad

Peckhr - wine sounds good If only I drank wink I do think we stress ourselves too much. Good plan about the weddings too smile

How u doing jennifer any sign of AF?

Jennifer8531 Sat 03-Oct-15 12:36:01

Hi Ladies

Thank you for your messages

Still no sign of AF, but was sick today ??

I hate the waiting around! Either want AF to show up so we can start trying again or get that positive result....
Waiting till Monday now (if I can!) then il go to the Drs either way


wantobeamum Sat 03-Oct-15 14:22:05


I'm having the same issue now...I'm now 7 days late...did a First Response test when I was 4 days late cos NEVER been late before always on time but it said negative. I still haven't had any signs of AF though, just really tired all the time and been getting a bit queezy at times, no actual sickness though.

Any advice? I was thinking of waiting a few more days and doing another test...bit worried if I'm not preggers and don't get AF xx

peckhr Sat 03-Oct-15 15:45:36

Jennifer, the waiting is the worst! Have you done another test? When I went to dr on Friday he just asked if I'd done a test (I said no) so he just said "do a test and come back". But def go if you're unsure, logically eventually you have to get a + result or AF. Good luck!

Hi wantobeamum (great name, sums it up for all of us there!) do another test in a few days? I am increasingly thinking these tests are not all they're cracked up to be... Lying wee-sticks!!

How are you doing, pulledapart33?

Pulledapart33 Sat 03-Oct-15 17:05:00

wantobemum - I'm the same as you just tired all the time plus headaches and queeziness.

Jennifer - Like you I just want to know either way! The waiting is really annoying me.

I think I'll wait a few days if still no AF by mid week I'll test again. Don't know how I'll survive without testing though hmm

Peckr- your right logically we should have a positive eventually. Thanks for asking after me I'm doing ok apart from the dizziness and headache but paracetamol has helped smile

Pulledapart33 Sat 03-Oct-15 18:54:05

Great proper nausea and sick now just threw up and still feel like I will be sick again sad

Is it at all possible that because I have convinced myself I might be pregnant I'm having all these symptoms??? Questioning my sanity levels now confused

wantobeamum Sat 03-Oct-15 22:17:36

Thanks! smile

It's really nice to talk to people in the same situation I must say.

I'm planning on doing a test on Tuesday...that will make me 10 days late then I think it will be Dr's time!

Pulledapart33 - I know what you mean...but if you're now physically being sick...sounds like somethings going on. It's difficult to not get your hopes up when your having symptoms.

Another thing that's so frustrating is that everyone tells you that it's when you're not really trying that it'll happen...getting pretty sick of hearing it. I mean how can you not be wondering whether or not your going to come on every month, definitely easier said than done. xx

wantobeamum Sun 04-Oct-15 07:51:34

Jennifer8531 - have you managed to wait to take your test? Let us know what it says tomorrow...I'm struggling to wait til Tuesday! xx

Pulledapart33 Sun 04-Oct-15 11:39:28

Morning both,

I couldn't wait got impatient so did a first response test this morning. Of course it was negative sad Day 11 here now and still no AF!

I'm thinking of getting the clear blue ones tomorrow although they are expensive. I will try to wait until mid week to do that one though (I'll try anyway)

I might so visit G.P but was wondering do they still do blood tests to confirm pregnancy? Anyone know.

Waiting continue's....

Jennifer8531 Sun 04-Oct-15 13:22:29

Just got some spotting....unsure if it's AF yet

Will keep you posted

If you ask for one GP should give you a blood test


wantobeamum Sun 04-Oct-15 13:24:12

Ah how annoying! Feeling for you, definitely go to the G.P. I heard they do but some people have said they can make you wait longer than it's already been and that they just get you to do a urine test which makes no sense. You'd think they'd go straight to a blood test.

I've got my first response test sat waiting on the side roll on Tuesday, trying to stay busy until then.

Keep us informed smile x

Jennifer8531 Sun 04-Oct-15 13:55:33

Think il go to the GP on Monday regardless as 10days late is unusual (let's not forget cruel when ttc!)
Still don't know if it's a 'normal' AF

Pulledapart33 Sun 04-Oct-15 14:14:43

Ah Jennifer ((( hugs ))) definitely keep us posted and let us know how you get on at the G.P

Wantobemum - waiting is hard so I hope you can stick it out till Tuesday smile

I've just bought 50 ultra early detection test off amazon as I can't afford to keep buying the expensive one and one clear blue test. Should arrive on the 8th which will at least keep me away from vigorous testing LOL I'm sure once they are here I will be testing almost everyday if AF still hasn't appeared.

Oh yes it is absolutely cruel to not have AF show up for this long to when your ttc!

Potkettleblack2 Sun 04-Oct-15 14:17:33

Hello everyone, a few months ago I had this experience so I know exactly how you're feeling. I'm usually very regular but I was two weeks late and only negative tests. I also had sore boobs etc, and googled loads and totally had my hopes up....But on day 15 AF arrived. I was sooo disappointed. I don't know how to explain why I was so late, and I still wonder if it was some form of early miscarriage-but I didn't have a positive test at all so I guess I'll never know. The waiting is horrid though, and I know this probably isn't what you want to hear....hopefully you all get your BFPs soon

wantobeamum Sun 04-Oct-15 16:17:55

Good idea buying in bulk!

I think I'll wait until day 15 after Potkettleblack2's response well I'll probably test day 10 and day 15. I think for me it's the first time since we've been TTC that I've missed a period you're so right's sooooo cruel.


Pulledapart33 Sun 04-Oct-15 16:39:00

Agree wantobemum - i think I will wait till after day 15 also (plus the test I've ordered should arrive by then)

Hoping whatever is causing these symptoms calms down by then.

Hugs to all x

Jennifer8531 Sun 04-Oct-15 20:43:03

AF is officially here sad

At least I know now and can keep trying wink

Good luck everyone! Thanks for messages, it's nice to know there's others in the same situation

Hopefully I won't be back on the same thread in a month!

Jen xx

Pulledapart33 Mon 05-Oct-15 09:43:40

Morning ladies,

Awwwwww Jen ((( hugs ))) yes definitely don't want to answer you on a similar thread next month. Fingers crossed for you for next month x

Well day 12 now and no sigh of AF and last night nausea was so bad I had trouble sleeping sad I resisted the urge to test this morning.

How u doing wantobemum? Hope staying strong in the not testing dept x

Gx91 Mon 05-Oct-15 09:56:37

Hey ladies just been reading ur posts , feel for you! I am only one day late and going insane as also getting negative result , don't think the tests r as good as they say , it took me a while to get a positive for my first pregnancy and doctor made me wait when I asked for a blood test ?? Eventually got the BFP a 10 days after I should have !
Been having the same pregnancy symptoms as last time ( headaches , bloating , cramping , metallic taste and tiredness ) it's driving me crazy not knowing ! Probably not worth testing again coz I got a negative test yesterday .

Don't know if i cud go 10 days , I would still try your doctors to see if they are nicer than mine was last time lol good luck to you all , hope u finially get the result you r looking for ?? X

wantobeamum Mon 05-Oct-15 10:09:21

Aw least you do know now like you said, get busy baby dancing smile fingers crossed for next month for you.

Hey Pulledapart - staying strong (just about) somehow came across people posting live pregnancy tests on youtube though got a bit caught up watching those...not necessarily the best move. I'm as anxious for your pregnancy test results as I am my own! I haven't been sick but last night kept getting a weird taste in my mouth and feeling like a might have needed to run to the bathroom but didn't so just a little nausea.

Hi Gx91 I'm planning on making a docs appointment just because I've never missed a period and the most I've been late is like 2 days so be a little conrned if I do test negative. We'll help you through the wait! These ladies are really encouraging smile x

Gx91 Mon 05-Oct-15 10:40:32

Thanks ! It's really nice being able to speak about it to others in the same situation! Don't think my man gets it , probably sick of hearing me go on about it ! My first child was a nice surprise so didn't have the before period anxiety !
hope all goes well with the doctor ! I'm going to try test tomorro I think will keep you posted X

Good luck for next month Jennifer , it must be hard as everyday seems so long coz it's all you can think about sad wishing u luck for next month really keen to know how u all get on ,this site is a godsend for me right now ! X

Also good luck to u pulledapart! smile
