I expected AF Saturday - no show. A bit of cramping here and there, but nothing. Sunday, no AF. I tested this morning with FMU and got a BFN. If I was pregnant it would definitely show up by now, right? With my other pregnancies I've always tested the day AF was due and gotten light, but definite BFPs. A few times today I've thought AF showed up, but when I go to the bathroom it's only a bunch of creamy/white CM.



Is it possible I'm pregnant and it's not showing up yet? It should show up by now, right? My periods have always been very regular and on time. I've never skipped one without being pregnant. I don't 'feel' pregnant. My other experiences have always been that I have that feeling before I test that it will for sure be a BFP - and it is. This time I'm just feeling lost.

Thanks, ladies.

Do you know your O date for sure? Is it possible it got pushed back and you may not be late yet?
Sometimes it does take a little longer to show up on a test. What type of test did you use?

I don't know for sure when I O'd. I'm fairly confident it was sometime around August 8-10th. I was crampy around that time and also had an increased interest in DTD which seems to be a sign for me. After that the cramping stopped. I started cramping again this weekend, which I took to be a sign that AF was coming.

I tested with a FRER.

Hmm. Well you may still get a BFP. And you are rather late. I hope you get some answers soon, I wish I was more help. I would say wait two days and test again.

Sometimes HCG just builds slower. They say it doubles every 48 hours that's why I say to wait two days to give it time to build and show on a pregnancy test. Some women don't get a positive till 1 week or two late. So there's still a chance!

Sorry you got a BFN. Do you chart, temp etc. The cramping this past weekend could possibly be O maybe your body geared up to O and didn't or maybe like the other ladies suggested that your just too early still for it to show + on a pregnancy test. Hopefully you get some answers soon. Limbo sucks

Good luck..the ladies covered what I was going to say about maybe not ovulating when you thought you did...I'd wait and test again if AF doesn't show. Best of luck to you!

Thanks, gals! If I don't get AF by Saturday I'll test again then. I hate not knowing. If I'm not pregnant, I'd like for AF to come. If I'm pregnant, I'd like a BFP. The universe can really be a pain sometimes.

I'm in the same place as you are! If I o'd when I thought I did, then AF should be here! I'm on cd 43.

With DD2 I didn't get a BFP until almost two weeks late. It was so frustrating! Back then though they didn't have the awesome early tests though, they had the tests that read at levels of like 100 or higher. :/

I hope you get your BFP soon!!

I had one pregnancy that didn't show on a test till 8 weeks, one that never showed and I only knew because I had an obvious miscarriage(8 weeks along), several to show at 7 DPO, some to barely show at 13 DPO... Every one is different! Good luck!

It's interesting to hear from you ladies who got BFNs, but were preggo. Still no period! I feel a bit nauseous here and there and have been feeling fatigued...napping and going to bed early. No more cramping. I just think it's strange that the first month we stop using protection is the same month my period decides to go MIA? For the first time in my life? So weird!

If it's not here by Saturday I'm going to retest.
