Must run to a meeting, but am hoping talking about it might make me come on! Wearing white knickers usually does the trick, but not this time.....

Bouj Thu 26-May-05 03:22:04

Ok, more info: am regular as clockwork, have only ever been this late once before.... hence ds! God, what if I'm pregnant? What if I'm not and I have been chatting to a non-existent being all day!?!

Bouj-not sure what to put as you don't seem to know whether you will be happy or not. I really want to say Congratulations.

Bouj Thu 26-May-05 05:57:01

Am in that frame of mind 'don't be silly, bouj, it was one night (admittedly in middle of cycle)and not proper (iykwim!!), you won't be pregnant'... But then the fact remains, I am late!! We had planned to start trying when we move house (end of next week), so it wouldn't be bad, just a bloody shock that I am that fertile! I have been looking for signs in everything all day (am in Australia btw!) from counting pregnant women to accidently flinging a tampon at someone....

Bouj Thu 26-May-05 05:57:49

I know you're all going to say, do a bloody test! would make sense.....

Toothache Thu 26-May-05 08:18:39

lol Bouj! TEST!!!!!!

My dd is the result of a half heart bit of action one night mid cycle.... and my DH withdrew at the crucial moment!! It was the one and only time that month we went near each other (so sad)!

flamesparrow Thu 26-May-05 09:12:01

DD was like that too It was makeup sex, but I was tired so asked if we could make up later and we stopped halfway through

desperatehousewife Thu 26-May-05 09:19:27

come on bouj - DO A TEST!!!!!!!!

Tabs Thu 26-May-05 10:17:41

Yes test - we could use some more people on our Feb 06 ante natal thread (assuming you'd be due Feb and not Jan?)!

hotmama Thu 26-May-05 10:22:21

Do a test - you know it makes sense. I had a thread yesterday called "Anyone had a negative pregnancy test but were really pregnant?" I did my third test yesterday and been to the drs today - I have now joined the Jan/Feb threads. Come on Tabs is getting lonely!

Toothache Thu 26-May-05 10:23:12

Hotmama - Congratulations!! Think you've got Oliveoil quaking in her boots though.

Bouj Thu 26-May-05 10:25:33

Bloody hell Toothache, thats exactly what happened to me! Will have to test on the weekend I think as am fairly sure DH will want to be involved in this one (with ds, I rang him at work and told him - not hugely memorable) and besides, that will be a week overdue. would be quite lovely, actually.....

Toothache Thu 26-May-05 12:18:01

NOOOOOOOOOOO We are much more important than your DH! TEST NOW!

MarsLady Thu 26-May-05 12:28:19

You can't just drop a piece of info like that and expect us to wait. For the love of all that's the test!!!

then post and tell us. I'm not allowed to be stressed, my BP is far too high! C'mon woman.

Toothache Thu 26-May-05 12:32:16

I finish at 4'15pm. PLEASE GOD WILL YOU TEST!

You could be responsible for Marslady's serious deterioration in health. Can you live with that?? *CAN YOU?

MarsLady Thu 26-May-05 12:33:51

thank you toothy! If she's an ounce of decency.......

tillykins Thu 26-May-05 12:34:57

I know, test and tell us
then if its positive, test again at the weekend with your husband and act surprised

Flum Thu 26-May-05 12:37:17

been a few of these recently. I think there should be a topic called 'Could I be pregnant' with live real time pregancy test.

that would be brilliant!

webcams too?

..... waiting in anticipation Bouj

Tabs Thu 26-May-05 12:38:08

Well if your DH can't be bothered to follow you around all day and night in case you want to test, then it's his fault if he's not involved! You can always test and not tell him the result, then test again at the weekend so that he feels involved!

Lonelymum Thu 26-May-05 12:39:36

Didn't she say she was in Oz though? She might have gone to bed now!

MarsLady Thu 26-May-05 12:41:28


Flum Thu 26-May-05 12:43:06

I don't think men actually place quite the importance on the whole thing as us! I'm sure he won't mind!

Toothache Thu 26-May-05 12:54:06

Someone wake her up!!!

Bouj Fri 27-May-05 00:05:00

Crikey, sorry! Yes, had to watch ER and go to sleep. But did the test, and ho hum, it is negative... But saying that I had 3 negatives before a positive with ds, so we will see! I am at the moment placing more faith in my cycle - that has never been wrong! Told dh last night as we were almost asleep that I might be pregnant, and i was going to do a test. He gave a dramatic sigh, and said 'ok dear'.. Now, I know I am CERTAIN every month I am pregnant, but this time is different..... So I tested without him, and then didn't tell him the result for fear of told you so!
