AF 3 days late but BFN

Postby Flinty1906 » Thu Feb 16, 2017 4:40 am

Hi all,
My AF is 3 days late but got a BFN this morning. Strange thing is ive been having weird symptoms. Last week I had terrible heartburn, my boobs were not sore like they normally are in the run up to my AF but since the due date for AF they have been aching and heavier. Woke up this morning with cramping in my calves, and have been feeling tugging sensation in my tummy. Do you think I might be pregnant, or more likely my period is just late? TIA

You could be pregnant, but you might have just ovulated late. Give it a couple of days and test again :)

Could have just have a late implanter and you could see your bfp soon. Your symptoms sound promising, especially that tugging feeling :)

Your symptoms definitely sound promising. I had sore calf muscles and the tugging behind my belly button right before my bfp with my son. I hope your answer comes soon!

Thank you for your replies, just to update, I had a small amount of pink blood when whipeing after going to the toilet this morning (sorry if tmi) so I thought OK well that's my AF starting. However, nothing since, all day and all evening! Been going to the toilet a lot, boobs are on fire and now 4 days late! Don't know what to think! If you have late implantation, how many days after implantation roughly would you expect to see a positive pregnancy test? X

Anywhere from 2 to 5 days after implantation, HCG should be reaching the urine. But you always hear stories about people who didn't trigger a urine test until really late. Maybe ask your doc for a blood test? I think the experts say that if you are a week late you should be getting an accurate result.

Thanks Becca. I'm in the UK, so the docs won't routinely blood test here! Guess I'm going to have to play the waiting game! Will test again in the morning and see if there is any change x
