nero1281: You never know, I was 2 weeks late before I got my BFP, I tested 2 times before this last time and both were BFN.

Yeah, I'm on CD29. I tested on CD 27. It was in the evening, but when I tested with DD on CD 28 in the evening, it was a definite BFP so I figure something should have showed up on Monday. But there was no sign of a line. Still no AF here so I figure I'll wait til tomorrow AM and test again. Perhaps a little turkey day surprise Wink At least I'll have an excuse for overeating tomorrow Biggrin
I keep getting this awful metallic tast in my mouth, and occiasional unsettling in my stomach and/or heartburn at night. These symtom's lead to believe something is up. I didn't have anything like that with DD though, except the hearburn.

Good Luck and baby vibes your way. I am excited to if you get the BFP tomorrow. That would be an awesome turkey surprise. Then you would call him/her your little Turkey!! I hope you get to join me in July!!

I'd actually have to call him/her something related to Ft Meyers since this would be a vacation baby.

I can't believe how impatient I am for tomorrow morning. I hate not knowing. Sad

What CD where you on when you got your BFP? And what brand hpt did you use? I've been using clear blue easy.

Boo.. I was hoping you got a BFP. I'm not sure what CD cause I had only had 1 period since my son and we what was normal 30 days before his pregnancy I was about 3 weeks late by the time I got the BFP. I know that isn't help. Sorry. I just used the dollar tree $1 pregnancy test. Hopefully you get an answer either way soon.

A BFP would be nice. But I'll take some kind of concrete answer at this point.

I think I'm going to buy some of those dollar store tests. Can't afford to waste the expensive ones every few days. I think I'll wait til Sunday or Monday and try again if AF is still a no show. I'll be on CD 33/34. And if nothing by Monday I'm wondering if I should contact my gyno or GP?
Have you seen a doc yet? Is there any explanation why you would get a neg hpt result for two weeks and then a positive?

Besides all the common reasons knowing if I'm preggers is good, I've been on an anti-anxiety medication for a while now and really shouldn't be taking it if pregnant. Luckily since I've been planning on TTC soon I've been weaning off of them so stopping shouldn't be an issue. I hope:(

Do you have a due date yet????

OK so we were pretty busy yesterday and I didn't get a chance to hit Dollar Tree, but DH was nice enough to go out for me. He didn't feel like going all the way out to DT, he went to our local Pharmacy down the street and got a 3 pack of EPT.
I had a bit of cramping on my left side yesterday that went all the way to my back. I though for sure that was a sign for AF, but to counteract that I was A RAGING LUNATIC (B)WITCH for most of the day and nearly came to tears a few times to. For what? I don't know! Maybe just the stress of it all?
Any way long story, short. Another BFN this morning. And no AF. So I may be jumping the gun here, but I'm calling my doc tomorrow.

This is really freaking me out. If I AM pregnant, what's going on? Is there some thing wrong? Could those cramps be ectopic? Did I not stop taking my lexapro soon enough? I'm 36 and know being over 35 carries its own set of issues....
If I'm NOT pregnant? What's going on? Just before I get ready to start TTC my cycle does this. Is this going to screw things up for me come dec/ jan? Is there some wrong with my thyroid? I have hypo-thyroidism and recently had a slight change to my meds. Is this the culprit? If so will this be an on going issue?

So as you can see, I'm greatly over stressing this. Which may be the cause of my uber nasty attitude yesterday. Or maybe it was a reaction to stopping my anxiety meds?
But I will say this: at about 8:30 last night I saw hot wings on the TV and decided I wanted some. DH said, "You ARE preganant!" bc this is something I would never ask for, especially not at that time of night. And being a great husband he went out and got some ( not to mention it got him out to the bar for a beer while he was waiting!) and I devoured them when he got back. :eek:

Ahhhh....vent over. Feels really good to get that out. DH just doesn't get it and I don't really want to discuss it with anyone else. Thanks for listening :0)

Hey,
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner. This weekend has been crazy, my dh's grandfather passed away so we have been super busy. Anyways, wow that is a lot to work through. I would maybe guess that between all the stress and the different changes that have gone on in meds that may have changed your cycle some. You may have also o'd late due to any of the above.

I go to the nurse for the blood work and paper work on the 16 and then I see the dr and she will do the dating sonogram on the 27. Super excited for that. I think mine was all late cause I am still breastfeeding. Even though I got my period back it def was not regular or going to be regular. So me being late on the calendar and numbers my body didn't think so. I should find out more when I go but I am guessing it is something to do with breastfeeding that through my cycle way off and making me ovulate pretty late.

Did you call the dr? Did you get an appt? I hope you get some answers. Either way a BFN, BFP, or AF I am sure would be great at this point in time. I'll check in on your tomorrow and KUP please. I have a really good shoulder to lean on and am a great listener.

THANKS!

I feel a whole lot better just getting it off my chest :O)

I think I left my cell at my mom's house on Thanksgiving so that is a problem with getting in touch with my doctors. My GP is local to my job so I called her but she's going to have to call me back. Problem there, no privacy in my office. But the receptionist said she probably won't call until this evening.
My Gyno is local to my house (an hour away) and I can't make long distance phone calls from my office :0( I'm hoping to head to my mom's when I get out of work and find my phone so I can call her on the way home. Either way I won't get an appt until tomorrow the earliest.

On a brighter side. Those cramps never came back so I probably don't have to worry about an ectopic pregnancy. Wink

If I had to guess, I'd say it's the meds. And hopefully a quick fix. Another good thing is that with this delay from AF, it puts me in a spot that when she does show (if she does!) i can start TTC right away as long as my docs approve. It'll put me in Sept. After closer examination to my work schedule a Sept baby would actually work out better for me as far as time off. But I'll take whatever I can get at this point Dirol

You must be so excited for the sonogram!!! With my DD i got to have one every month bc of my Thyroid. I'm sure that will be the case again if I get a #2. Plus being over 35 it's almost certain. I dont' know how mommas that only get like 3 sonograms do it????
If this situation turns out to be the real deal, my date -according to my LMP-would be August 1. But I'm not marking my calendar quite yet :rolleyes:

Deirdre- d@mm body! (((hugs))) I had a simular sit. two months ago when I reeeeeally thought I was preggo. My TOTM has been like clockwork of 26 days since I started tracking and then suddenly it was 3-4 days late. And the whole time I *felt* like it was going to start and lo and behold..... nothing. That exactly how I felt when preggo with Drake too. But, eventually, that witch showed up. I hope yours is just late and being evil. >Sad BUT.... maybe baby still? I would be so excited for you! How late are you?
As for U/S, my SIL only got one (the sex) and it was horrible quality. I felt so bad for her. Sad you are lucky to get so many!

Sorry to hear about DH's grandfather. Was he close to him?

Can't wait to hear about your appt! Yay!

Marie - My cycles have not been consistant since AF returned in April. I've been using the App on my iPad which averages your cycle to calculate when your due. According to that, I'm a week late.
The one thing that has been consistant both this time and last time I started tracking after coming off BC, all but the first or second cycle is under 30 days. My last 7 cycles were 34, 30, 24, 24, 28, 26, 25 days. I believe this cycle i was "due" on day 27. I'm on CD 34 today.
So that's a bit odd. On a side note, when I conceived Erin, my cycle had "regulated" to alternate from 25 to 27 days.
Also, according to my app, I O'd on the 7th and DH and I and DTD on the 6th. So if the O date is close there is a good chance something caught.

These darn negative HPTs are driving me batty though......

I don't really feel anything any more as far as the bad taste in my mouth and the sporadic unsettled stomach so Im really started to think there is nothing there and it's just the meds. So weird. The only thing I change was to take a half a pill instead of a whole on Sunday. i wouldn't think that would screw with me so much ????????

I got an appt to see the other OB at my office on Friday. (I think my OB must be on vacation) If AF arrives before then I can cancel. But if not I'll be on CD 38 and I assume a pregnancy test or blood work should show positive by then if I'm pregnant.

I also spoke to my GP and told her I stopped taking the lexapro. She said I should be fine but I should observe how I'm feeling in a few weeks. She's also going to check if it could be a cause to period disruptions but she doesn't really think so.

So no answers, but for some reason, I'm stressing a lot less over it. It is what it is, right?

Thanks for listening.

Good luck for Friday. I'm excited for you, that you should at least get some kind of answers by this Friday. Still hoping you get a BFP.

DH was pretty close to his grandfather. He got really sick about 2 weeks before he passed. At that point my DH and his father rotating nights staying with him to make sure he was ok and if he needed anything someone was there with him. He was also able to be there and hold his hand as he passed away, so that was pretty hard on him the image but I know it was good for him to be there with him and saying good bye.

KUP about this week and Friday.

I'm sure your DH is grateful to have had his grandfather in his life and to have been with him at the end.

Thank you so much for your support. It's been rough on me mentally. I feel so silly about getting so worked out over it. I'm trying now to just take it for whatever it is and hope that I'll get an answer on Friday.

I have one more hpt. I'm debated on trying one more time before my doc visit on Friday. Any thoughts?

Come on BFP!!!! just cause it would be exciting! Wink Is it Friday yet??? How ready is hubs for a BFP? I can't help you with test thing. Remember when I bought all those HPT tests for Feb? I have ONE left. Good lord! Those things burn a hole in your pocket worse than a dollar and a ten year old. Lol!

If I had a test I would of course try either Thursday or Friday but that is me. When you have them they are hard to keep around. I hope you get lots of answers on Friday and I'm all ready to welcome you into the July 2012 board if/when you get your BFP.

Well, ladies I have good news and I have bad news.

The Good: AF showed up this morning.

The Bad: AF showed up this morning.

BUT.....I am not at all upset. I'm actually excited. With this delay, this new cycle puts me in Sept for TTC and well, I can now officially say, I'm TTC. Biggrin

Thank you for all of your support!!!

Weimerbaby1- I'm a little sad that we won't be BB buddies, but I'll definitly be stalking you for the next 9 months!

Marie - You crack me up! I know what I should be sending you for christmas :O)
And we're still in the running for Oct/Nov babies Biggrin

Stupid AF. At least you have an answer though. Yeah, DH can't believe I went through all of those tests. What is my problem?? I have made a pact with myself to not test again until AF is ACTUALLY late. I've never taken a HPT early, while preggo, so I don't even know if one would work for me. So far, I just like POAS I guess. Biggrin

Can't wait to stalk you on the Sept board!!

1st off I just need to ask:
"WHY did I have log on SIX times to get to this reply?????"

Anyway, Thanks Ladies. I have little faith that I'll actually be on the September boards since I now have absolutelty no clue how long my cycle will be or when i'll be Oing, but I figure it can't hurt to start trying now and increase my odds :O)
