Hey Ladies!

I'm not trying to get pregnant, but not really doing much in the way of preventing other than trying to avoid mid-cycle (not so effective I know!).

Every once in a while I can feel when I ovulate, and during those times I will spot mid-cycle with sharp pains. That happened this month, and I was expecting my period on the 24th, still no sign of it! I haven't had any symptoms except sore boobs which is unusual for me even before AF, fatigued, and I have a cold. I'm not bloated like I usually am before a period and I actually have less CM then I usually do (odd!). With DD1 I was ultra bloated before I found out, DD2 I had cold symptoms, and with both my previous pregnancies my boobs never started hurting until around 8 weeks. None of it is scientific, and I'm not trying to read into any "symptoms" or lack thereof.

I am confident that I ovulated, no AF, and negative tests! I am confused! I've been late for a period before, but the part that confuses me is the ovulation signs and my LP never being longer than 14 days! I've heard stories of people not getting positives until weeks into their pregnancy, even when they got early BFP in previous ones, but does that really happen? Any insight at all?

Hey M-A-momma!

I'm going through the exact same thing right now. I don't know what I would do without boards like these to get the frustration out

I'm also not "trying" but not preventing - I am 11 days late for AF and still negative urine tests

I went to get a blood test done at the doctor's today so I will find out for sure based on that.

Regardless, isn't it frustrating? I hate that I'm so familiar with my body and yet at the same time have no clue what is going on when stuff like this happens!

You could have either ovulated later than you're thinking and therefore it isn't showing a BFP yet, or it could be the classic symptom of stress etc.

I hope you get whatever you're looking for though! Keep us up to date.

It is SO frustrating! I've always been very regular even though I am a constant ball of stress ha! I think I would be more passive about it if I hadn't got such strong signs of ovulation, and usually when that happens my period is right smack on time! That's what's throwing me! But I will say anything is possible and I may just be late all around! I just hate not knowing what's going on! My boobs are getting even more sore! I don't understand why that would even be happening, that was never a sign for me! My pregnancy symptoms were so different each time, the first I knew well before my BFP, I could just feel it. The second was a total shock, I had no idea! So I'm no good with analyzing symptoms! I feel like our bodies are just so full of surprises lol. Have you had any notable changes?

I'm glad you were able to get your blood test and I hope they have the results for you soon! Be sure to keep me posted! I hope you get the result you are hoping for!

When did you notice the ovulation pain/spotting? How many dpo do you think you are? I think I would use that as your guide more so then when AF is due. Your LP may not be quite as long as you think because you can't really pinpoint your o date based on spotting and ovulation pain. You may have noticed that a couple of days before you ovulated. I usually give myself a little window around that time (when I'm not charting). So, you may get AF in a couple more days. I tend to think you aren't pregnant just based on your tests but if your o date is off by a little bit that could be why your tests were negative.

How many DPO are you? When did you test?
