Freaking out a bit...***Updated 1st post

Just took a First Response and BFN. CD34. So my system must be all screwed up from stopping the pill. So waiting for AF.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I stopped taking the pill last month. My last period was on Aug 31 so I am on day 29 of my cycle. I should have my period by now??!!
When I was off the pill to get pregnant with my son, my cycles were 21 days tops!! I'm hoping it's because my system is all mixed up for having stop the pill....
We used condoms all month so the possibility of being pregnant is very slim.
I don't have pre period symptoms... so that is bothering me??!!
When I finally became pregnant with Hunter (after 11 cycles) I didn't have any symptoms of pregnancy and tested just because I was late (3 days).
If I don't get AF by Friday, I will test first thing Sat morning just to get my mind at ease.
Probly worrying for nothing... I would be ok with it of course but I'd prefer to wait a while.

You're probably right... coming off the pill can make your cycle screwy for a while. Do you think you'll test, or just wait it out?

Give it some time. When I got AF back after DD, my first cycle was 35 days! And before I had her when I came off BC it took at least 3 cycles to regulate

Yep, took me 3 or 4 months for my cycle to go back to normal after BCP. I'd say you're pretty safe unless you know for sure you were ovulating during sex and that condom broke. We have been using withdrawal method for 4 years, sometimes during ovulation and still have never gotten preggers.

If you used condoms the chances are very very slim. I hope you get the answer you want this weekend!

Okay first...deep breath. haha I freak out every month (but we don't use anything but withdrawal) so I know exactly how you feel. Anyways I see almost every woman on here who comes off the pill freak out for the first couple months because their cycles are different then before they went on it. I'm sure you are just fine if you used condoms all month.

So I gave in and bought a HPT on my lunch break. Didn't want to waste a lot of money on a FRER so I bought a cheap kind for less then 5$ (cause I'm almost sure I'm not preggo).... so I'll test tomorrow morning with first morning urine.
I'll keep you guys posted.

POAS this am and BFN. It was a blue dye test (I know, I know) but it was the cheapest and I didn't want to waste a lot of money on it. One line only...so day 32... still waiting on AF. Hope my cycles becomes regular so I can start planning on TTC.

On another subject... we had unprotected sex last night... I figured, WTH, I'm surely not ovulating on day 32!!:rolleyes:

Do you know when you ovulated or just what CD you're on?

Pretty sure it was on the 11. Lots of CM . Like I said before, I usually have very short cycle. (21days) We did have sex that day but with a condom.

When I took the test it was a BFN. I took it a 6h30am. Then went back to bed. Looked at it when I woke up at 8am and it was positive.... but read on the box to believe only results in the frame time so....

Still waiting for AF....:confused:

With Ryken, that's how my test were early on...it took a while to show the positive. I know that the boxes say after so many minutes to not believe it, but I dunno. Will you be testing tomorrow morning?

Hmmm... I'm not sure I would discount that test. I would definitely try another one... Preferably a pink dye test... Can't wait to see what the future brings for you!

Hmm...every time I've tested I got a BFN and I would go back and check it hours later and it would still be snow white. So the line there hours later sounds promising. Do you have any symptoms? Looking forward to your update.

Could it be an evap line? Blue dye tests are pretty notorious for those. Either way, I hope you get an answer soon!

Well if you know when you ovulated and you are past your normal luteal phase length and you got a weird postitive test I'd be leaning towards pregnant lady! Take another test!!!

You guys are really FREAKING me out now!! How can I be pregnant while using condoms that didn't brake??
I feel like testing again but don't want to waste $... I really don't feel pregnant (but I didn't feel pregnant with Hunter either...so???)
NO signs of AF coming either??
Had cramping yesterday so thought for sure it was AF finally showing up but nope, nothing~...
I may go buy a test tonight and try to wait till tomorrow morning....
