I am really struggling with accepting this cycle as "unsuccessful", I was suposed to start AF yesterday, woke up this morning with some bright red spotting, still getting negative HCGs, suposed to go in for a blood test this morning but dont know if I should bother with the spotting this morning. Normally during period I am bloated, have pimples, crampy ect...I have some cramps 4-5 days ago, they only lasted a couple hours and went away, no pimples, I am not bloated. Do you ladies think its possible that I implanted really late and that may be the spotting or do you think I am just making up excuses because I want to be pregnant and that I should just move on to next cycle? I was really hopeing for some good news this week, my cousin was just killed in a car accident on Tuesday, big truck jack knifed hit her head on, she has a little boy who will be 3 years old next week, then my Mom lost her job yesterday so if I am able to afford to try again everything bloodwork, ultrasounds, all of it will be out of pocket because I was on her insurance. I know we can do it again if I am not preggo but we will need to save some money this month and not do another IUI until April cycle.
If you haven't gotten full red flow, then there's always a chance. Though I've never been pregnant, I have read that a lot of women experience spotting and end up pregnant. I certainly wouldn't compare how your body responded in previous cycles compared to now; I've done that several times and I'm starting to notice that it's never consistent-- especially if you're on any fertility drugs. Try to hang in there and keep your head up-- there is a lot of power in positive thinking!
Born 12/30/11 and absolutely perfect!
I am also 15 dpiui and was holding out hope as well, but I am spotting and my temp dropped this morning, so I know AF is right around the corner. I don't want to be a Debbie Downer, but I would guess if you're getting negative HPTs and spotting this far out, AF is probably coming. Go for the blood test just to be sure though (I'm going today as well). Sorry!!

I'm really sorry for all that you're going through right now!
I agree with the previous 2 posters, but I suppose it could go either way. Most people have enough hcg in their system at 15 days to show on a pregnancy test, but I've read some women couldn't get a positive until day 17.
