I'm 15 dpo (or so I think)...AF is now 2 days late. I have no symptoms of anything (AF or pregnancy). My bbs were very sore and tender/achy around my armpits which is odd but not impossible to have as an approaching AF but that has disappeared now too. No crramps. Nothing. I'm really tired but then again thats also not unheard for me as I LOVE my sleep
Anyways, I got my ICs in th mail yesterday and used one of the first HPTs this morning after about 6-7 hrs of sleep. But NOTHING. A stark white as snow BFN. Ugh! WTH is wrong with me??? I am NEVER late! Why does this have to happen when I'm TTC??! I feel like crying. I'm getting really discouraged. I wouldnt even be so upset as to see AF right now...just as long as I know the wait is over and a new cycle has begun. I know I'm out...by now I'd be getting a BFP, at least on the sensitive as hell ICs. But the stupid has to screw with me and get into my head and get me all emotional
I'm sorry--I needed to vent. When I tell S/O about it he just says "I'm sorry babe. Theres always next cycle." I know he means well but he just isnt grasping my frustrations
Ok...sorry. Vent over. Thx for listening
TTC is very stressful hun and stress definitely impacts your cycles. I was a week late last month when I never am normally. My advice to you would be to stop testing and just wait it out, all those BFN's are too discouraging. If you're a week late and AF doesn't show, call your DR and ask for bloodwork. Good luck hun!
I thought that my AF was late, but it turned out that I Od late (according to my chart). So now I am about 11dpo and testing tomorrow. I am usually a 28 day cycle girl and this one is on cd35. So it is possible that you you Od late and now you are in the 2ww
Same here; a couple of cycles ago when I started temping, I stressed about my temps so much that I delayed Oing and af by 6 days!! So you could have very well Oed late... Sorry things are looking so bleak now. I know how it is! And like you said, DHs mean well, but they don't truly understand. They aren't battling with these mothering hormones! Hang in there!!
I agree with the other ladies... it is totally stressfull and don't be sorry for venting! WE all need to do it from time to time. Im also 14or 15dpo and getting a BFN and having no symptoms of AF. I usually have long cycles though so it wouldnt be out of the ordinary for her to show her ugly face soon!
Hope you get your BFP soon!
And my DH is the same way... sometimes i feel like im the only one truly let down when i see that BFN even though I know he wants it bad too. In fact, my DH thinks that because AF is late it still could mean i could be pregnant. He doesn't get the whole symptoms and dpo thing!
I am sorry. I think that is one of the hardest parts about TTC, when you feel stuck in-between two possibilities with no end in sight. If possible take it out of your mind for a bit and give it a couple of days. The body can do weird things during times of stress and play mean jokes on us. Best of luck hon!
i completely understand!! it is very difficult for me too. My husband already has two children so for him, it is not as sensitive when I don't get pregnant. It feels like we are trying sooooo hard and getting no where!! just remember that it takes time and try not to get to frustrated because from what I am told stress can effect your ability get pregnant as well. Good luck to you!!!
