Irregular periods moan

We've been TTC for several months now. Wondering if it will ever happen, took and absolute age last time. Since starting TTC my periods have gone haywire. Currently 3 days late and a BFN. It's the POAS and having it confirmed that nope it just didn't happen again this month that feels like a gut punch.

I shall keep positive and keep on fighting the good fight for another month!

I'm in the same boat I'm afraid and although I can't offer any advice, know you're not alone. My cycles since TTC have ranged from 30 to 41 days. It's heart wrenching. I'm currently 7dpo and trying to stay positive but also don't want to get my hopes up x

I'm sorry you're in the same position. I forgot how frustrating it was the last time. Everyone I know seems to get pregnant with nothing more than a look these days. I keep telling myself it will happen when it's meant to happen. Fingers crossed for us both!

Oh god I hear ya! I'm not even kidding, all of my close mates are expecting or have a newborn! It's so hard to deal with. I never realised how much it affects mental health. I'm frustrated as with number 1 - we got caught straight away! So annoying 😡😡 fingers crossed for you xx

Same. So annoying. Makes it impossible to track when I'm ovulating (or am I even ovulating at all?!)

Yes to the ovulation! We've been using OPK sticks and only once managed a positive. I don't know if I'm not ovulating or if I'm missing the surge.

It will all be worth the stress. I keep telling myself this smile

Update; still no period so took another test today and it's positive!! I'm in shock, it has not sunk in at all.

6 days late. I took a test when I was due (2 actually smile and BFN but was feeling bit sick today and thought I might as well do another on my lunch. I was completely convinced it would be BFN also. Had to spend the rest of my shift in a daze.

It doesn't feel real!!

What test did you do? I've been having nightmares with tests this week so loooking for a good one! X

Opk or pregnancy? Opk just cheapies from amazon. Used to use clear blue digital but actually prefer the amazon ones. Pregnancy today has been mix of pound shop and tesco own brands. Bought clear blue last week and they both told me BFN.
