Why is my period late?????

I'm not PG, 4 tests have confirmed that. Although there is a very very slim chance I could be but it's very unlikely.

I'm not stressed.

Nothing has changed in my life.

It's never late and is now 4 days overdue.

Am starting to think all sorts of sinister things.

Does anyone have any idea????

You sound stressed out about it being late, that can be enough to delay it!

hi what are you going to do? are you going to the dr?

is there anything you are worried it could be

emmatmg Wed 13-Apr-05 21:03:30

I don't think I am though......confused about why it is but not stressed.

It's only ever late, with no signs of it starting when i'm PG but I know I'm not.

Was godmother at christening at the weekend but thats hardly a huge event. Certainly wasn't worried about it, looked forward to it actually.

i knew you were hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm . sorry, no helpful ideas though.

vict17 Wed 13-Apr-05 21:11:06

are you on the pill? are you always on time?

emmatmg Wed 13-Apr-05 21:13:53

Always 28 days, with signs it's going to start a few days before that.

Not on the pill, haven't been for yrs.

Hoxtonchick, it's too much like hard work changing back anf forth. Am I that obvious??

ha! the same part of your brain which controls thoughts, emotions and stress and worry also controls your menstrual cycle. Just the fact that you are concerned about this (and posting about it on mumsnet!) will probably be working to delay the period by at least a day! Stop thinking about it and it will start, I could almost bet you (easier said than done though I know!)

emmatmg Wed 13-Apr-05 21:24:01

Did defo ovulate, learnt about knowing I have from here.

I not in the slightest bit worried about being PG. I'd love to be, Ok it wouldn't be ideal having 4 children in a 3 bed house but it really wouldn't be the end of the world.

I don't know how you girls manage with erratic cycles all the time. Must be a night mare.

piffle Wed 13-Apr-05 21:29:55

who says we manage, do you have any idea how many preg tests I've peed on in the last week
nopw I'm eying up ovulation piddle test sticks
sad huh!

emmatmg Wed 13-Apr-05 21:34:47

Has your Dh cahnged his mind then piffel? i remeber your thread from a while ago where he wasn't keen.

Let me think.........................Hmmmmmmmmmmm yes

emmatmg Wed 13-Apr-05 21:42:31

don't know why I bothered really!

LGJ Wed 13-Apr-05 21:45:06

Well for what it is worth, I thought you were NDP

BTW DS was late for his first day back at nursery due to the other thread, so fair is fair.

SleepyJess Wed 13-Apr-05 21:51:18

Emmatmg, mine was ten days late once last year for no apparent reason!! I was starting to get seriously alarmed.. DH has had a vasectomy!!

Around that time (apart from the ten days late month obv) I starting having 26 day cycles for months on end.. when I had always always had 28-29 day cycles. There are back to normal now. But my friend who knows about these things said that once you are 30ish, your periods can start to do odd things occasionally. not early menopausal.. just a not quite as regular. Are you 30 or over?

will be 32 in june.'s because I'm getting old!

SleepyJess Wed 13-Apr-05 21:55:17

Chill love chill! But PML.. that's just what I said to my-friend-who-knows-about-these-things! You're not getting old.. it's just one of those things! I was 33 in Feb.. and have suddenly noticed I have wrinkles.. currently awaiting delivery of v.expensive wrinkle from Avon..! So dodgy periods be buggered! ;)
