Hi All

So we have been ttc for about 5 months now, I am due on in 2 days and I am absolutely exhausted! Some slight stomach cramps which I don't normally get before AF but not much else.

The thing that I am wondering about is the tiredness, I have never felt like this, feel like I've not slept at all but am probably sleeping more than usual! This has been going on for about 4-5 days now!

Took a test today but that was BFN - anyone else had anything similar but still been pregnant? I know I took the test a bit early confused

That's how I knew before I got a pos test I was so tired was ridiculous. ..falling asleep at tea time etc ..really har with two other kids to look after and getting up for work haha ..I got a really early pos test but everyone's different good luck xx

Thank you! I am keeping my fingers crossed - it other symptoms which is worrying me but I just gotta keep positive x

I remember being extremely tired when pregnant with my DS. I would literally would fall asleep on the sofa straight after dinner! Perhaps your HCG levels aren't high enough yet. Hope you get your BFP!

Thank you! Took another test this am BFN Still sad I've ordered some FRER tests and am going to wait for a few days - thank you!!!! Xx

I had the same with my youngest DC and I did 4 tests at home,they all came back negative,I was still sure I was pregnant and so was my DH.

I went to our local clinic and had a pregnancy test done there and that came back negative but the Dr I saw there said that she agreed with me and my DH and she was postive I was pregnant as well.

She told me to leave it a week and go to my Dr's and have another test done so I did and the test was positive,my Dr said to me yes you are pregnant,your very pregnant,I was a few months along smile

So it can happen,I had 5 false-negative pregnancy tests but I was pregnant.

Good Luck,fingers crossed for you.x

Tiredness was the give away for me too with both pregnancies.

Both times I was getting negatives on the internet cheapy tests and only got my positives on FRERS on the day my period was actually due and even then they were really faint lines.

Good luck!!!

I found that pregnancy tests were a bit rubbish in general - I ended up not trusting any tests done before my period was due. Do an early response one on your period due date, and do it first thing after you wake up in the morning as that's when your hormone levels will be highest. Best of luck!!!

Yep, extreme fatigue a few days before my BFP. I'd honestly never known tiredness like it. I could barely keep my eyes open for about three days before I found out. Tiredness was definitely my worst pregnancy 'niggle' throughout, especially the first trimester. Sleeping became my new hobby! I'm now 40+2. smile

Good luck OP and let us know how you get on in the next few days.

RoseGoldHippie Fri 24-Feb-17 09:14:00

Thank you all for your responses smile I will keenyou updated!

Congratulations crazypenguinlandy wishing you a healthy pregnancy and baby xx

A quick update - I'm now 2 days late but still BFN on the tests. I think I'm going mad! I'm still exhausted too despite laying around doing sweet FA over the weekend! Will book a gp tomorrow - what do you guys think?

haveacupoftea Sun 26-Feb-17 10:33:28

The GP is really unlikely to do anything for you - i'm afraid you'll have to wait it out!

RoseGoldHippie Sun 26-Feb-17 10:44:13

Yeah your probably right, I'm just a little concerned about why I'm so tired all the time if I'm not pg. I will wait a few more days and see what happens. Am loosing hope of a BFP this month which sucks 😞

FlipKat Sun 26-Feb-17 13:49:25

I agree, GP won't do anything - our surgery has the same urinary pregnancy tests as you can buy in the shops and policy is not to do HCG blood tests. Hang on in there and test again in a few days! Fingers crossed for you

RoseGoldHippie Sun 26-Feb-17 14:29:33

Thank you!! X

RoseGoldHippie Mon 27-Feb-17 10:07:38

Just a quick update - still no AF and still BFN. I am however now getting heartburn like mad to go along with the tiredness. I think I may just be going a tad insane !

TheGrumpySquirrel Mon 27-Feb-17 13:56:18

Hi rose I'm watching with interest as I'm CD28 and my pg tests are negative (possibly the faintest of squinters but may be evaps). I feel exhausted and spaced out and fed up! How many days late are you now? Are you usually regular?

countryred Mon 27-Feb-17 18:00:16

Any updates rose? How many dpo/days late for af are you? Af 3 days late now for me too and not showing any sign of arriving, another bfn this afternoon (I caved! Was going to hold out till Wednesday!!). Fingers crossed for a bfp for you x

RoseGoldHippie Mon 27-Feb-17 21:20:19

Hey guys - I'm now 3 days late too! Still showing BFN sad still exhausted and started getting heartburn really badly, I know it's probably jut wishful thinking but I feel weird and I'm just really hoping for a BFP! How are you guys doing?

TheGrumpySquirrel Mon 27-Feb-17 21:22:46

Hi guys I got another BFN today .. CD29 tomorrow 🤞🏼

NotFromAJedi Mon 27-Feb-17 21:30:44

Just wanted to say my last pregnancy I was 4days late when I finally got the faintest positive of all time ! That little miracle is now sound asleep in her moses basket next to me smile good luck ladies flowers

TheGrumpySquirrel Mon 27-Feb-17 21:36:23

Ahh thanks Jedi !! I was late before I got a positive with my DD too, but it doesn't stop me from testing early madness

RoseGoldHippie Mon 27-Feb-17 22:05:14

Thank you jedi I will test again in the AM- were you seeing symptoms before and testing with BFNs before your 4 day result? grumpy I know exactly how you feel! I keep trying to wait but I just crack haha!

ohtheholidays Mon 27-Feb-17 23:21:41

Fingers crossed for you all waiting for a positive.

I forgot to mention in my PP that when I finally got a positive test I was 10 weeks along.

I hadn't realized because my periods were all over the place and I thought I must have been imagining the symptoms,for me it was falling asleep at the drop of a hat and then the indigestion and a metalic taste on and off in my mouth.

So a positive after alot of negative tests can happen smile

NotFromAJedi Tue 28-Feb-17 01:48:38

Squirrel ttc makes most of us mad wink pretty sure I was testing from a few days po! Lot of good that did me grin

Rose Yes I was! The tiredness I had like you said but it was my boobs that gave it away- sore as hell! And yup I thought I was imagining it too as having BFN everyday am and pm until I had what I thought was an evap line on day four am- got the slightest faint real line that afternoon!- just for the record I tested again after that day's 5, 6, 7 & 8 because had lost pgs before and only really got a bfp instead of a dreary little line (but I'd take anything) about day 8! Think I had super late implantation for whatever reason as had tiny spotting early on the day I was meant to get af smile all very confusing hey!
