Hi All, apologies in advance if this has been discussed before but i haven't got time to go through the archives.
My AF was due on Saturday and my cycle is 28 days and as regular as clockwork... until now!! I normally get niggly tummy aches and dull back aches when i'm due on but haven't had anything this month. I did a pregnancy test lastnight which appeared negative. So, i'm at a bit of a loss as to why i'm late. I'm not stressed and i'm not taking medication and my dh and i are currently ttc. Any ideas ladies?? My dh has convinced himself i'm pregnant and that it was just a faulty test. I'm loathed to spend more money on tests at the moment.... but... this is driving me mad!!

I would get another test or get your GP to test for you.

Nbg.. i just wish the tests weren't so expensive! We've also recently relocated and as yet haven't got a Dr but i guess i better start looking!

I know the tests are expensive.

TBH I think I may be PG but it's a few days before my AF so I'm going to wait but if I was in your shoes I would buy another.

I think i'll get my dh to bring one home with him tonight.. that is is i can wait until 10.30pm!!
Wishing you lots of luck too x

I don't know how you can wait that long!

I'd be straight out buying a test

All the best to you as well.

I think it's because the test yesterday was negative, that i don't think i am pregnant. I know mistakes can happen but i also think that maybe a little part of me wants to continue believing i may be and another negative would dash my hopes. I think that just about makes sense!!!

Right, go on get yourself to the chemists and buy another test

First response or Clear Blue Digital.

i am going through the same thing, i have decided to wait a little longer and then buy another test

My ds is asleep at the moment but if he wakes up soon, i'll go and get one. If he doesn't... i'll wait until tonight!! I suddenly feel very sick...

Newbarnsleygirl Wed 04-May-05 14:52:38

OOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, it's sooooo exciting

womba1 Wed 04-May-05 14:53:28

Hi Lucyjo... it's awful isn't it?? It's surprising how quickly you get your hopes up.

womba1 Wed 04-May-05 14:55:41

I'm now singing at the top of my voice to wake my ds up!!!! What a wicked mother i am!!!!

Newbarnsleygirl Wed 04-May-05 14:57:02

Get the hoover out

womba1 Wed 04-May-05 14:59:23

He sleeps right through that... trust me...if my singing doesn't work then nothing will!!

Newbarnsleygirl Wed 04-May-05 15:00:38

Waft a bar of chocolate under his nose.

That'll wake him up

lucyjo82 Wed 04-May-05 15:00:43

womba1 Wed 04-May-05 15:03:25

lucyjo.. i've got everything crossed for you hun x

Nbg.. hmmmmmmm... that might just do the trick! I'm sensing that you've tried this method before?!?!

Newbarnsleygirl Wed 04-May-05 15:04:27

Me? No never

Newbarnsleygirl Wed 04-May-05 15:04:55

It works on Dh's as well

womba1 Wed 04-May-05 15:06:58

I'll bear that in mind.. thanks for the tip!!

Newbarnsleygirl Wed 04-May-05 15:08:34

I'm gonna have to go now but I'll keep my fingers crossed for you both.

Hi, have you tried Poundland? I kid you not, tests are only £1 and I got a positive maybe 5 days late - I did a clearblue (for £8!) the next day and it confirmed it. I did an internet search on 'babystart' - the manufacturer - and they are available online for £2 - I really don't think the expensive tests are any better.
