Hi all, I’m currently 6 days late (cycle day 35, 20 dpo) and I’m so afraid to test. I’ve been ttc #2 for 13 months and was going to start a iui cycle but my period never showed. I did have some stressing situations my last week of the tww but other than that I’m not sure what’s going on. I’ve read so many posts where people keep getting bfn even after being so late that I’m super scared to take a test and it be bfn. My cycles are pretty regular and are 28-30 days. I have sore breast’s, weird wet feeling making me think I started af but nothing when I go to the bathroom, af like cramps on and off and indigestion. I have also symptom spotted before so I’m super cautious about all this. Dh wants me to take a test but I just want to wait until I’m like over a week late. Anyone gotten a bfp with symptoms like these? I also get super tired after doing almost nothing or climbing stairs or showering my 3 year old.

Hiiii, I was exactly the same. I was sooo scared to do a test, I tried to convince myself it was all just in my head. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Everything was adding up, my boobs were sooo sore, couldn't lay on my front in bed, i too was alot wetter and had many opps moments when I thought I'd come on and nope, nothing. I had daily crampings which I convinced myself it was AF on her way. You need to find out 😊 I got my bfp after waiting 11 days and I'm now 6 weeks pregnant and I'm so glad I plucked up the courage to just do it.

Good luck !! ❤

Thanks, I will have to do it eventually if it Dosent come. After 13 months of negatives it just seems so hard to believe that this would be the month you know. I haven’t really done anything different.

I can't offer much help but I really have my 🤞🏻 for you! I think if you can get up the courage then you should test today using a FRER. If you're pregnant you'll definitely get a positive at 20DPO and 6 days late, so at least you'll know for sure either way. I really hope it's your lucky month 💕

I really feel for you! I was 9 days late once and not pregnant, so confusing.
The month I actually was, I convinced myself that I had to wait until I was 10 days late to take a test, but I could not stop thinking about it and the boob pain was unreal.
Ended up testing at 6 days late, but not first morning wee and it was negative. Tested at 8 days late, very very faint and thought I was making it up. Finally got a BFP at 9 days. All I would say is definitely do your test first thing in the morning to know for sure. Fingers crossed for you ☺️
