5 Days Late - Negative Test (Can I still hope?)

Hi all,

I joined the board about a year ago, but my DH and I have been on and off with TTC for the past year. We kicked it back into gear this spring and, low and behold, I'm 5 days late! Hooray, right? Well, I'm not so sure. I took an HPT (several, actually) and they're all BFNs. I'm NEVER late and I am EXHAUSTED, my breasts ache, and I swear I got heartburn for the first time ever over the weekend. I also have had cramps on and off for about six days.

Can I get excited? My doctor's office seems to think I may just be late, as I haven't gotten a positive HPT, but I feel different and I've never been this late before. I've seen on boards also that some people wait weeks before they get a BFP. Also, my BBT is about a degree higher than usual, which it's been for 19 days (but who's counting).

What do you guys think?

Hmm so you've already seen your doc? Did they do a blood test? That does seem weird that's its almost a whole week late. Are your cycles usually regular? I'm not sure I have any good advice for you, but I hope you get some answers soon. That's frustrating for sure.

I would request the doctor do a blood test. If you temp and know when you ovulate then odds are you could be pregnant. I've heard of women who never get BFPs on HPTs for some reason.

I agree with requesting a blood test at the doctor's office. Some women are weird and never get a positive on an HPT. I would keep POAS though until I got that blood test. Maybe try a different brand if you have only tried one.

KUP!! and :goodluck:
