Still nothing going here.

We went peach picking today for the first time...so, I am going to make a peach pie (for the first time) and justify it with being in limboland.

Wait a minute. I just put my numbers into a calculator.... and I think I messed up something. So I am under the impression that I ovulated on 7/22/13 so I'm like 12DPO. My cycles are a bit irregular, so I usually assume about 32 day cycle (though it varies)... so i'm not due for 9 more days??????????????? Isn't that a LONG time? Maybe I misred my OPK? I sure hope not, we haven't been great about dtd after I got what I thought was positive timing for ovulation...

So does this mean I should just expect 9 more days of negative tests before AF? ugh. Please sort me out.

Now I'm really going to get my recipes together for that darned pie.

Oh..p.s. not for too much TMI, but my vag hurts when I wipe. Sore. The only time it's ever felt tender before was when I had my m/c. No idea what that's about.

Ok, I'm no expert at this, but let me try calculate this for you.

So a luteal phase 'should' be at least 12 days, roughly between 12-16 days, give or take.

If you ovulated on 7/22 (meaning you got a positive OPK before that, right?) then lets say, 12 days past ovulation would be today actually. So, AF could show up anytime between now and the next few days. If you did actually ovulate on the 22nd then you would get a positive on a pregnancy test pretty soon (depending of course when implantation actually occurred) if you are pregnant.

I would keep testing.

When did last months AF start/when was cycle day 1 for you? And how long are your cycles normally?

Ok so positive OPK was 7/22... so when do you project ovulation? It could be 12 hours up to 72 hours later.... how do you know? (I'm not super in tune w/ EWCM and don't "feel" ovulation)... so that adds a couple days which I didn't think about. So if I ovulated 2 days after a positive OPK, it'd be 7/24 (CD14), and I would be 10DPO today. Regardless, I still have possibly 9 days until AF if I have a 32 day cycle. My result would be a luteal phase that is @19 days, which I guess is in the realm of possibilities right?

So..... if someone can be my second set of eyes, and let me know if I'm calculating wrong, that would rock. It makes me think that it's still possible, right? I just read it can take 12-19 DPO to get a BFP.... so, happy thoughts.

I guess where I was way off was thinking of a 2WW. I don't have a 2WW. I have an almost 3WW since I tend to have longer cycles. Nature is vicious.

You are correct on your calculations. When did AF start last month? You always have a 32 day cycle? So, by your calculations, Cycle day 32 is on the 12th of August, right? So, then calculating backwards AF started on the 12th of July, is that right? I'm getting confused now. By these dates (if they are correct) then you would have had a positive OPK on cycle day 11 and 48 hours would have been cycle day 13. So today you would be 11 dpo. so, you still have lots of time to test if that is the case!!!

Correct me on the dates if I am wrong. I was using a calendar and the dates you provided already, counting the first day of AF as cycle day 1.

Yeah pretty close. CD1 was 7/11. I don't always have any certain number of days for a cycle. In the 4-5 years since I started keeping track, I've ranged from 16 to 45 days in cycle length, but I usually just average around 32. I really never know.

Tested again this morning. Nothing again.

Thanks for your help, sugar!!

I hear ya .. I will admit I've done it multiple times in a day, just because I've seen people say on here they've seen BFPs in the evening. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one!

I have zero chart advice, but I really hope you aren't in limbo land for long. It's a cruddy place to be. Hope you get a BFP somewhere in the very near future!
