AF Arriving later when TTC

Is anyone else having this problem? AF used to be pretty normal, every 27-29 days...28 average.Ever since we started TTC, AF is arriving late. What up with that? almost a week, which makes me very excited and then totally bummed when she finally arrives.


I've heard of chemical pregnancies--could this be it?


I'm also thinking my mind is telling my body to hold on to that egg to give it more time to get fertilized..:)


Anyone else experience something similar.

As far as chemical pregnancy... have you been receiving positive tests when AF is late??


My cycle has been all over the place when TTC... but that might also be because I have only been charting for around 5 months (we're on TTC cycle#4)... your body can vary from cycle to cycle!!

Yap, chemical pregnancy would had lead to a positive test even before AF was due...


Can't remember if you said, somewhere, when you stopped BC? As Kristen said, could it be your cycle that isn't fix already? It doesn't take that much to mix a cycle...just a little bit of stress and you might be a couple day late!

I went from a 28 day cycle to a 31 day cycle when I started TTC...the only thing different that I can think of is the pre-natal vitamins I started taking. They have quite a bit of B6 in them, which  I've heard lenthens the luteal phase (part between ovulation and period) of your cycle. Could that be it?
