I know, I know, I need to POAS but I can't right now.

Period is 4 days late, maybe 3, I'm usually 30 days and very rarely 31. In extremely predicable, like I can book holidays around my period a year in advance predictable.

We are ttc and have been for a year.

Bubutbut I can't see how I could be pregnant this time - we only managed to have sex one during the appropriate time (normally CONSIDERABLY better than this but taking it easy for a month because of complicated work and house moving stuff.

And my temperature is showing a classic about to start period pattern, and I'm feeling weird Iittle twinges which might be period coming - but that's been happening for days.

So - is there any chance? And if I am pregnant is the temperature thing indicating a problem with the pregnancy?

I promise I will test as soon as I can. But if I test then I will know I'm not pregnant :'( so I've been putting it off because magical thinking.

Being late is probably the best possible and most accurate symptom of pregnancy (unless your periods are usually irregular). If I were you I'd take a test.

I'm stuck with no access to test taking until at least late this evening, aaargh. Why didn't I just do one yesterday??!

We've had so much disappointment. Not like some people, it's only been a year, but I can't bear to get our hopes up. But yes it is very late and that is very unusual.

I'm excited and yet also terrified. Everytime I go to the loo I think it'll be there but still no period...

I don't want to get your hopes up but the one thing that made me POAS was the feeling I was about to come on but nothing was positive after 14 months of trying.

Good luck flowers

That's exactly how I feel New. It just seems so unlikely!

The stupid thing is I best there's a teenager or someone who doesn't want to be pregnant somewhere moaning "but I only had sex once!!". Which is all it takes... Unless you are my brain and convinced it can't be happening!

That comment you have made right there is exactly what I used to say!!! Every month was soul destroying sad I had the added complication of having no idea if I was ovulating as my cycle was anywhere from 20-40 days and it couldn't be pinpointed with bloods.

I so hope you get the result you wish for.

Thank you all but alas it turns out my body is a giant troll. Period has started. On the plus side, wine with the friend I'm meeting later this week, and at least I didn't waste an expensive test. (I only had the frer ones in).

Oh well, back to the shagging board.

Sorry to hear that flowers

LadySalmakia Mon 24-Apr-17 16:28:06

Thank you. There's always next month and we've had some testing so we know there's no obvious issues. Just need to do more shagging. How terrible. puts brave face on

I just want to sympathise. That was me on holiday last summer. Never normally late by that much. Ended up being five days late and not pregnant. Just a late ovulation due to stress. That was the nearest I've come to really really getting my hopes up in over two years of TTC. The only occasion I believed it might have happened. Makes it so much worse when af arrives flowers
