Really hoping for some good advice mums, Im in the situation were my period is 9 days late, im bloated, spotty , mood swings are every few hours and has now been sick and sent home from work but had a negative test?

Just back from the doctors, she did a test and came back negative and told me to wait another 8 days then do a test but I'm going out my mind and a I feel that 8 days is so long away lol?

Please any help would be great, I dont have anyone I could speak to except my partner on this, my friends haven't had children yet so they will be saying Ooooooh your pregnant, but I would like to hear from people that's been in this situation,

How did it turn out for you? Were you pregnant or just a really late period?

I know it is hard when your ttc and your period is late, but I was over 10 days late once (I think maybe even up to 15 days) and was convinced I was pregnant. But alas, it was just a really late period. I had never had that before or after. Period came and it was totally normal, I don't know why it happened.
Try to think its just a late period then if you are pregnant it will be the best surprise ever!

Thanks very much for the reply, yeah I think I will just treat it as a late period! I didn't think they could be this late lol hmmmm we will see what happens! Xxxx

Are you usually pretty regular? While 8 days late does seem like a long time, my periods could come up anything up to a week later and that was completely normal, on the flip side, they could also turn up 5-7 days early and that was normal for me too!

Unfortunately at this stage it is just a waiting game! You can choose to test every day or just wait another week and re-test then, there really isn't much else you can do

My periods are normally regular, within a day or 2 this is the longest I've ever had to wait! Yeah it's some wait, my mind is racing but I'll try next week!

This happened to me, I could not get a positive test for weeks and I’m now 28 weeks pregnant so it can be possible! Keep ya posted and good luck x
