I usually have normal 28-day cycles. Occasionally, AF will start a day or two early or a day or two late, but when that happens, I've always had spotting right on time. AF is 3 days late, and I haven't spotted at all. My bbs and lower back are sore off and on. I also have a little cramping occasionally. I keep swearing that AF has started, run to check, and nothing.
I've taken 6 HPTs now with the last ones being taken yesterday, and they were all BFNs. Unfortunately, I have no idea when I ovulated or what my temps have been so no way of knowing how many DPO I am.
I don't really know what to think at this point, and the wait is killing me. Is it possible that I could be pregnant or more likely that I'm not? Any advice, stories, etc.?
Sounds like you ovulated later than normal. I'd give it a couple days and retest if no period. When I was TTC with my daughter Ava I started charting and using ovulation predictors tests, anyways I ovulated 2 weeks late, I have never ever done that before,I would have missed my chance to conceive if I hadn't charted,I would have been waiting 2 weeks not knowing what was going on. I can say even if you have always been like clock work,never late,you can have an off cycle,I hope you find out either way soon,waiting in limbo is the worst!

Thank you! Waiting is definitely the worst! Obviously, I desperately want a BFP but even if it's a BFN, I just want AF to arrive so we can try again. If nothing has happened by the end of the weekend, I'll probably schedule an appointment with my doctor since then I'd be a week late.
I talked to my nurse today, explained what's going on, and asked her advice. She told me that given my medical history and current symptoms, she would be surprised if I wasn't pregnant. She also told me that she doesn't consider a HPT 99% accurate until AF is at least a week late.
While it was nice to hear that she thinks I'm pregnant and it's just too soon to test, I'm still not getting my hopes up. I would hate to assume that I'm pregnant only to get crushed.
5 days late, no sign at all of AF, and another BFN.
I'm leaving on a trip to go visit my family on Friday, and since I only see them twice a year, I really want to be able to tell them the good news in person if it turns out to be a BFP. Waiting is the worst.
At what point should I resort to a blood test if still no AF and no BFP?
