16 days late but bfn and blood test negative?

Hey ladies this is my first time on here so bare with me with the shorthand! This may be a long post but I don't have many people to talk to! So we were not planning a baby but also not using any contraception (came off the pill over 3 months ago) and thought if it's fate then it'll happen when it's meant to be. I have never checked my body temp or used opk(?) but I've worked out I'm 16 days late, I have had no bleeding whatsoever, no agonising cramps which I usually get and bfn every single time. I went to my gp last week, urine test and blood test came back negative and she was great about it, told me to go back if I still don't come on. I've had every symptom, even ones I didn't realise were symptoms! Sore boobs, they're feeling heavier too, little twinges where my uterus is, feeling sick and peeing a lot more! I've hardly been eating (not like me) and the only thing I've fancied is chocolate - I rarely eat sweet foods as I love my savoury! Lots of watery cm (Tmi sorry!) and feel exhausted constantly. Has anyone else been in the same boat and what was your outcome? Thankyou for reading and hopefully we can all help each other out! Grin

Hey Hun, I've been in the same situation but in my case I am trying for my sec baby and only started in Dec. Anyhow I'm always on time with my period and the signs I get is back aches.. never really been late however this time round I've been 10 days late and my body was completely different.. I was convinced I was preg as I got sore boobs and constant peeing.. however it all changed today as I've come on!! I'm sooo gutted however I don't understand why I didn't come on for 10days.. it really upset me as I was convinced and today was the day I wanted to take the test and then it all got ruined 😩

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear that! There's always next month! I'm not really stressed just confused and skint from all of the tests I've bought! Blush

Just give it another week or so.. would you mind being preg?? If not then just go with the flow 😊

Jessiecat27 · 30/01/2017 12:29

No I'd be made up! I'm just confused more than anything! Got an appointment on Wednesday just to see what the go suggests but I'm so impatient haha

Oh god I'm the same.. trust me the docs won't say anything.. they would check and tell you if your preg or not. I'm gonna get some ovulation strips as I would then know when I'm ovulating and hoping I fall preg 😊

I was waiting until we'd moved until somewhere bigger and got ourselves sorted but if it happens before then I'll still be happy! It's more for my peace of mind seeing the gp, feeling like a loon now because it's all I'm thinking about!

I'm afraid that if blood test sayes your not pregnant, you are very likely not pregnant.

Blood test picks up tiniest HCG levels.

I had that, turned out it was stress because of DS2 starting school (he has SN). DH wasn't helping by saying it was probably an ectopic pregnancy and we should go to A and E Hmm. I came on in the end, about 3 weeks late I think.

You're newly off birth control. That can make your cycles very unpredictable. I had a 50 day cycle, 23 day cycle. You just can't guess it. Try not to worry and just wait for AF. You're not pregnant so it's unfortunately just a waiting game. X

So now I feel like an idiot! I've just worked out my dates properly, turns out I'm only a week and a half late, I had my blood tests done only a few days after missing af! πŸ™ˆ so the blood tests may not have picked it up with such low levels? I've been told to go back when I've missed af for the second month unless anything changes!

Blood test picks up 7-10 days after conception. Teeny tiny amount.
