Who else is suffering this annoyance? I was expecting my period at the weekend, so it's not terribly late, but it's not usually late at all. But of course BFNs confused had a squinter yesterday but it didn't really turn into anything.

This happened once before a few years ago when I was TTC DC1 and i had skipped a whole cycle for no reason!

Hunker down cause it's gonna be a long few days til we get answers envy <- not envy

Ill join you @BuntyII because I’m sure the very act of posting will mean AF arrives next time I visit the loo! 😂
AF is due today by reckoning but a day late according to Glow and Ovia.

EverythingNow Mon 28-May-18 18:36:45

Well that did the trick, sorry @BuntyII I can’t keep you company any longer. Good luck!

That was a short trip on the bus @EverythingNow 😂 good luck for this cycle, I'll join you soon on the June bus I'm sure

Hey I'll join in..,

AF 26-28 days. Today is day 27
Brown discharge on/off for 2 days.
Bit more regular now and usual AF cramps.
Clear blue advanced asked for a test yesterday. Said not pregnant, but I could see a faint line.
Maybe chemical? (Again confused)
Pretty sure AF will be with me by morning, bang on time!
If not, I'll test again 🤞🏻

Count me in. 6 days late and whole lot of bfns. Not even a hint of AF at the moment, no idea what's happening.

It's driving me nuts!

Af due today but no sign yet. Bfn this morning with ic, not sure how long to leave it until I test again. Have one frer left but have had a few cycles at 27 days so not sure if I should wait until Thursday to use it.
No symptoms or anything last month but this time ive had a fair few. Not sure if it's something or just that I've caught a virus or something at the exact time I'd expect symptoms.
Just a waiting game I guess to see if it rolls on to start ttc again next month instead.

Newbie here! I'm on day 34 currently have no idea when I ovulated if I did! Stopped taking the pill in march and have had 1 full cycle that was 31 days. Took a test on day 31 this time and was BFN, so no idea really!

I wish I saw this a few days ago I was 4 days late for period this month with continuous bfns. Never had late period previously. Started spotting yesterday which stopped and at arrived today with terrible right groin pain. Not something I've had before, sas wondering if possible chemical but didn't have a positive hpt. It's only my second month ttc #1 but not worried as I'm usually regular as clockwork.

Hiya ladies welcome to my bus of HELL! 

Sorry AF got you @sprinkleofsunshine thanks

Still nothing here! I'm going to give it until Friday and if still nothing will test again.

How's everyone else getting on?

Wishful30 Tue 29-May-18 11:14:46

This suuuucccckkkkks!!!!!

I have no idea what my body is doing. Af supposed to be here but not... we'll not really. It's all a bit light brown and scarce.
Preggo test bfn but as much as the monitor says no, I can see a faint line 🤦🏻‍♀️
Chemical/not chemical. Screwed up cycle after HSG??
Who knows, I don't 🤷🏻‍♀️

Ohnonotanotherusername Tue 29-May-18 11:52:11

I feel you @Wishful30 this cycle is just one big 🤷🏻‍♀️

Frizzy1986 Tue 29-May-18 13:18:16

Symptoms galore here but still nothing. Starting to get a bit more cramping now so assume af is just delayed.
Bfn on frer this morn and surely that would pick it up at 1 day late.
Weird heavy feeling in my tummy though, like there is a mass in there. Probs just the food I'm consuming 😂

BuntyII Tue 29-May-18 14:45:44

Still nothing here as well. BFN and on CD 31. Funny thing is I had all the usual after ovulation symptoms well over 2 weeks ago - sore breasts, cramping, thick cm etc. I thought if you ovulate your period comes without fail after 14 days 🤷🏻‍♀️ I guess I was wrong!

All I have now is very mild breast pain.

Frizzy1986 Tue 29-May-18 18:14:57

I'm just down to slight breast pain and crams now. Cramps are increasing so maybe that's a good sign that she's on her way. Not sure I could've had more symptoms this cycle but hopefully I'll be more chilled next one as I'll know they mean nothing.

sprinkleofsunshine Tue 29-May-18 19:24:59

Thanks @BuntyII

Good luck to you all!

Frizzy1986 Tue 29-May-18 23:16:01

I'm jealous reading about people getting af now. It's the not knowing that's killing me.
Yeah of course I want a bfp, was going to move jobs but it doesn't quite fit with the ttc plans and we don't want to hold off longer so I have an "end game" in sight sort of thing so just want to be able to get started on the next month.
Increased cramps now. Weird to have had such swollen boobs last week as I only ever get that a day or 2 before af. Clearly my body was just being a pain and having a laugh.

Wishful30 Wed 30-May-18 06:58:36

Well, game over. AF is finally here.
Looks like another chemical 😞
Onwards to IUI 😐

Ohnonotanotherusername Wed 30-May-18 07:10:09

Well, I'm out. AF got me this morning (one week late). I'm actually a bit glad, at least I know what's happening. Bring on cycle 5.

Good luck ladies.

Wishful30 Wed 30-May-18 07:25:34


Cycle buddies 😂

How long is your cycle usually?? Xx

TillyTheTiger Wed 30-May-18 07:31:26

Yes! CD37 here (normally 30 day cycle), nothing but BFNs and no sign of AF - it's like my body is just trying to get my hopes up before the inevitable disappointment. Been trying TTC #2 since August and getting a bit fed up now.

Ohnonotanotherusername Wed 30-May-18 08:02:55

@Wishful30 snap! Normally 20-22 days. I only came off the pill at the beginning of the year though, so hoping that this is just my cycles stabilising a bit. What about you?

Wishful30 Wed 30-May-18 08:06:31


26-28days tho usually 28.
All this ttc lark does seem to mess it up tho.

BuntyII Wed 30-May-18 08:42:22

Sorry @Ohnonotanotherusername and @Wishful. Good luck in your next cycle.

I've had another BFN this morning. Realistically it's past the stage now where I could get a BFP even allowing for late ovulation and late implantation sad
