Hi everyone 😊

So, this is 3rd month of ttc our second child. What a crazy 2WW this has been! I have 28 day regular cycles, ovulate (according to test strips) on day 14 each month and normally have the same build up to af so I know what to expect and when.

Last month I was a day late so I decided to not stress this month (that’s not going so well atm). This month however has been so weird! I have been having prodding in my lower abdomen since 9dpo, muscular twinges in my groin, side of boobs/armpits, lots of lightheaded moments, a stiff neck and hot sensations in my ears. I have been having mild af type cramps since 9dpo on and off. On top of all of these symptoms I have also been completely exhausted since 9dpo. I tested using a frer test yesterday and couldn’t see a line. I am due af today (14dpo) but no sign as yet. With my daughter I didn’t test until the day after my missed af so I’m not sure if I would have tested negative at 13dpo or not. I feel pregnant. I have so many physical symptoms and yet no positive test 😭

I wasn’t able to test this morning as I am waiting for some more frer tests I ordered online to
arrive today 😩 Did anyone else have a similar situation re the symptoms and negative test so late on? I read that implantation can take up to 14 days after ovulation so in theory I could have had a late/long implantation? This is sooooo frustrating! To top it off we are booking out family holiday this weekend as we wanted to make sure we aren’t pregnant before booking anything abroad. Will be a UK trip for us if wr get a bfp . . . Stuck in limbo right now! Help lol 😆 I have added a pic of yesterdays test as if I squint I think I can see a grey line? 🤣🤪

some people let a late bfp so it’s possible but all you can do is keep testing

if you had implanted late you wouldn’t have been having pregnancy symptoms at 9dpo though as you’re not pregnant until after implantation. Any symptoms before implantation is usually due to a rise in progesterone. Last cycle I felt so different to usual with very different cramps to AF but AF still came it sucked as I really thought I was pregnant so now I won’t trust anything until I get a bfp

It can take a couple days after implantation to show up on a test though I think so if you had a late implantation it’s possible. If you had implanted at 9dpo I would have expected it to show up on a test by now but our bodies do strange things so who knows

@allgoodthings84 thank you. Since writing this post I have had what could be implantation bleeding. TMI but a 20p coin amount of very pale pink with a minuscule piece of brown. No sign of af though and this never happens to me normally. Fingers crossed 🤞
