I understand what you mean ..... but it could just be a surprise PG! But yah, with my first, I just *knew* I was PG. But I only got the feeling one day before AF was due and took a test and got my BFP.

So today is the day. AF is due and all I can do is wait for her arrival. I'll be surprised if she doesn't show sometime today and DH has decided we need to take a month off TTC if it didn't work this time. :(

Nope! I'm officially two days late now. I have been testing on internet cheapies and all negative. Last night I used a clear blue test and it was a BFN. I'm not really having any symptoms except extreme exhaustion, some tough headaches, and slight back pain. Those could be from anything though. I'm beginning to think I might have just ovulated late this time. My OPKs were hard to read so I can't be sure. My DH has been asking everyday if this is it. He is so excited and it makes me extremely nervous that this might not be the month. Who knows though? guess I'll wait it out and see.

That's what happened to me last month, I didn't know my exact O date, but I know I O'd late and forgot. AF was a week late and I was getting excited ... over nothing though. This time I know for sure when I O'd and wrote it down, so I know not to expect AF until next week. Still, I am going to test early!

I'm pretty sure I know when I O'd now but at the time I wasn't really sure. Definitely won't be using those OPKs anymore if it comes to that. Right now I am still waiting on AF to arrive. She is three days late and there is still no symptoms of baby or AF. I'm never late like this. Usually you can depend on AF arriving on day 30 with no problem. I really want this to be it but I guess all I can do is wait. Mother Nature can be so cruel sometimes.

Aw sorry about AF showing up. So this cycle was longer than you usually get?

I took a test yesterday afternoon, BFN. Then this morning with FMU at 13dpo and anther BFN. My DH says maybe it's too early. Just trying to keep my spirits up. I have werid symptoms so if I am not PG what are all these fake symptoms? Yesterday I was nauseous when we were driving to a dr's appointment, but I felt fine the way back. Today I got cramps and when I was brushing my teeth I felt like I was going to puke. I guess I will just wait and see if AF shows up.

Hope this is just too early for you! The symptoms sound legit to me :) I'm crossing my fingers and toes and sending baby dust your way!

Yes this cycle was almost a week longer than usual but I think I ovulated a week later as well. I've recently found out that I'm diabetic ( Yikes!) so I think that has played a big part in my TTC problems. Maybe since I'm getting that under control then the baby will fall into place for us :)

Stupid AF showed up for me Saturday night .... I knew I might have missed O since I was out of it because of a nasty cold. Well, at least AF came earlier than I expected her and not late so I didn’t waste any more $$$ on tests, and so I can get started on the next month!

Sorry about AF. Looks like we both are starting another month. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope this is the month (again)
