15 DPO today, no spotting and temps still high. My usual pattern is that I get some spotting, however light, the day before AF, and my temperature also drops a bit before AF. AF usually comes on 14 DPO, once on day 15 in the last year, and I'm not getting any symptoms like cramping or the C CF I usually start seeing a little bit before AF, too. My nips have been sore like usual, and I can't tell if my bbs are sore because of a workout 2 days ago or if it's a pg symptom like I had before, so I've been totally disregarding that.

SO.... The million dollar question! Should I test??! I would normally look at someone else's stats saying these things and tell them go ahead...but I'm so tired of BFN's that I am really, really hesitant about testing again. Should I $-store test tomorrow? Should I just continue to expect AF this weekend, and then if I am pleasantly surprised with her absence on Monday test then? (My husband teased me I should not test until next Friday!)

I would say to test on Sunday if she still hasn't shown. I want to say test tomorrow, but I can tell you are hesitant, so sunday shouldn't hurt

I'll be the odd ball because your cycles sound a lot like mine and you sound like your heading just like I did when I was preggo with my son, I usually always spot the day before af with temps starting to drop that day, af usually arrives 14 DPO for me but when preggo with my son, no af 15 DPO and temps still high, I tested that day and got a BFP...I say test Saturday morning

Since you are tired of getting BFN's I woud just wait one day longer. You said your longest LP was 15 days so if you get to day 16 than that would be a good sign to test. I hope AF will stay away!

Thanks for the input.

Well, honey and I BD'd this morning, which would usually bring on at least some spotting if AF were due later that day, but I've had nothing... I'm feeling a little more hopeful. I'll still be telling myself "I told you so" if I get a BFN, but I think I am going to test this weekend. $ store tests, though. No FRER for me unless I get at least one + from a cheapie brand first. I'm going to go pick up a couple of tests in town while my honey is out playing basketball this morning (Saturday) and test sometime later when I can save up pee a bit! Will KUP.

My husband just came over and read this thread. He doesn't do that often, but he got a cheeky smile on his face and told me I could avoid testing for longer by making him a promise to buy him a bottle of scotch every time I test! Chuckle. We compromised, and have agreed that every time I tell him the result of a poas, whether it is negative or positive, I preclude my news with putting some kind of stiff drink in his hand first! That way he has a little Dutch courage for my respective tears or bubbling over.

i agree with the waiting to test. Though it does sound very promising. BD usually brings AF on for me too so if it hasnt for you maybe you are preggo. Hope you are!!! Let us know what happens when you test!

Yea, wait one more day...that way if AF does show today you will have avoided that BFN. Hope she does not show though!

$ Store test. BFN. If AF doesn't show tomorrow I'll test again in the morning, and the next day, until I get something conclusive. The absence of my period still makes me wonder.

Are you positive of your O date? I know you said you chart, but I didn't see a link in your siggie or anywhere. My test of choice this time was FRER- I know they are more expensive, but I always found the 3 for 2 pack Good luck!

I am quite certain of my O date. My crosshairs follow all the rules, correspond with EW, and my temps take a more significant jump up at 6 DPO and are staying high. My chart this month isn't as perfect as I might hope -- 1-5 DPO are not as high temps as I would prefer, but there is a clear thermal shift -- but it is by far clearer than many I have had and determined O correctly with. I chart at home, but I do keep a backup on FF and that confirms what I saw on my own. Haven't figured out how to post my FF chart successfully or I would.

Dear friend came over for a haircut this afternoon. She was with me through both mc's in '09 and has been a great support with all this TTC stuff. I showed her the test... She thinks it is a very faint positive! It looks like an evap line to me, since I have to squint at it, and my husband is certain it's an evap line and a negative test. But I still don't have any AF symptoms yet, no cramps or spotting or anything except feeling a bit more moody and less energetic, and my bbs are still quite sore, so I am not giving up hope yet and will test again in the morning with FMU. If AF comes I won't be entirely surprised, but this is the longest LP I have ever had without being pregnant.

Updating on Sunday morning. Still no AF. Occasional cramp twinges, but they last about 10-15 seconds and go away for an hour or two, and they feel like AF coming on but also just like my first pregnancy. And my boobs hurt so much I actually did the BFing trick and stuffed my sports bra with cabbage leaves last night.
17 DPO today. I got 2 negs yesterday, so am going to just wait it out for another few days and test again. It's not over until the fat lady sings!

Oh I hope this is it for you... It might just take some time to get the BFP I was 5.5 weeks along with DD when I got my BFP
