Trying to Conceive

Missed period, negative test.

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 6 months, no luck. About 2 months ago i got orders to deploy this january, so we decided we wouldnt "try" any longer until i got back. Im not on any type of bith control.

My periods are very regular, i usually start between the 15th and 18th of every month. But this month, its late. Its the 23rd and nothing. No cramps or anything.

No Baby today

Went to the doctors today, officially two weeks late. Got tested again and it was negative but was advised to come back in a week if AF didn't return and have a blood test done. Sadly, not even a couple hours after I got home, AF returned. I am so dissapointed. I never felt this bad before when I got my period.


My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant since March 2010. Since I was on the pill for 16 years I did not have any expectations of getting pregnant right away but my periods have always been very regular. My last period was due 8/31/10. I've never been more than a day or two late so by Friday 9/3 I went out and bought a pregnancy test.

Too Tired

So I wanted this to be the month that I conceived. I wanted it so bad! I ovulated around my birthday (last weekend) and it would have been the perfect birthday present! Too bad I was too tired to have sex. I think my boyfriend is getting frustrated too. I'm working 40 hours a week at my new full time job, plus I'm still working between 3 to 5 shifts a week at my waitressing job. I wish I could give up the server gig, but I need the money, especially if I'm trying to save up some extra cash for when there's a brand new baby around the house.

How to start looking for symptoms

I'm only a few weeks from conception and my period is due the 7th of Sept. I know I have to wait for my missed period but I feel very different. Its only been a could weeks but I'm getting headaches everyday, I'm very exhausted when I even wake and can barely do anything through the day. And I am hungry all the time. I'm very impatient. I took 6 tests and they were all negative. Too early?
