Update from me

Hey lovelies! Instead of ruining the entire December Testers thread with my pity party - I'm going to start a new thread!


Took a PT this morning... still BFN *sigh*


*TMI ALERT* I haven't had any normal AF symptoms, and as of today I am 6 days late (CD 35 - longest cycle I've ever had was 31 days). I did wipe after taking my PT, and had some dark brown blood (not enough to even get on my underwear, just when I wipe) that I only had this morning. I've had no additional blood when I wipe since.


I have had some slight cramping... nothing like AF cramps just slight on and off that I've had yesterday and today.


I might try and take another PT Sunday, but I am going in for bloodwork on Monday to see what's going on. I'm trying to relax... because I know stressing out about every little thing and every little detail won't help me one bit!


I appreciate all the baby dust and prayers that you all are sending my way, please keep them coming if you can spare! I swear I'm a crying fool every day this week because I'm so frustrated (I cry when I'm stressed, so not too unusual but still). I appreciate you all so much that I can come to you all and vent. Besides my DH and my sister, you are all the only people I can talk to about this.


 


Can someone let me know if they think I'm crazy and this just sounds like a super late period?? I've never been PG before... so I have no idea if this is normal :(


Love you all!! Hope you are all having a better Friday then I am :)

Kristen! You are not crazy!!!!!! 6 days late with no normal AF signs, when you are never late, is kind of a big deal to ignore! 


I am sure you have read that some women never get a BFP when they POAS, only through Blood work. Keep testing, since I know you wont be able to stop until your MD appoinment on Monday.

Kristen, I just want to hug you! I don't have any advice, because I haven't been there before. But, I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I imagine the whole situation is so frustrating!

Oh Kristen! Vent away, I know once I start to TTC I'm going to be a complete basket case. Look at me I'm already stalking this thread and it's 7 months away for me. Keep us updated!!

My first + pregnancy test with my first pregnancy came when I was 9 days late.  So it could still happen!

Oh Kristen...*BIG HUGS*. I can understand why you're so stressed out and frustrated.


I tested + 4 days late at my first pregnancy. Before my BFP, I hade 4 days of brown spotting.


Are you sure about  your O date? Cause if so...there must have an explanation why AF hasn't showed up yet and the most probable is pregnancy.


I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.


Hang on there sweetie!xx

Thank you all!!! :) I appreciate all the support and knowing I'm not crazy :P ha


@AuntTate - Thank you honey... that is good to know!! :)


@Pavez - I was actually thinking about that today.... Today I'm on CD 35... and my O date was CD 16.... but let's say my O date was actually CD 20 or 21... I would only be 13-14 DPO versus 18 DPO which may still be too early to tell. Even with that though, no matter how long my LP is... My CD has never been longer than 31 days and my estimated period date on FF has always been 100% right... I was bad this month and didn't temp every day like I normally do (holidays + travel = inconsistent wake up times and less sleep) so I'm not 100% that CD 16 was my exact O date.


@MNM - what is the difference?? lol - should I ask for that right when I get there?? I'm pretty much just going in to get bloodwork done and that's it, I won't actually be seeing a doctor just going to the lab for a blood draw. I want to know what I'm (kind of) talking about when I get there ;)

Great info and description, Laurie! 


K -- I'm still so hopeful for you! I can't even imagine how frustrating this is to go through for several long days. Have you still been taking the B6 (I think?) supplements? It seems like they really had an effect on your LP last cycle, so I'm wondering if they are just highly effective for you and are truly extending your LP (giving you longer cycles than you are used to having). My other thought is also that you O'd late, especially with the stress/activity of the holidays, travel, etc. It sounds like that could be the most likely option, which means there is still plenty of hope for a BFP :-) 


FX FX FX for you! I hope this weekend is not too stressful and all goes well at the doctor on Monday.

Aww, that's terrible not to know! I'm so sorry that you have to endure all the waiting and wondering--it's got to be beyond frustrating. Hopefully you will get some answers with your bloodwork! FX for a late BFP for you:)

Laure - thank you for the explanation!! :) That is very helpful!!


@Debbie - I actually haven't been taking my B6 this month (like my temps... they fell to the wayside the last 4 weeks with the holidays). That's the odd part about it!! :P


 


Today the same thing happened this morning when I wiped, except this time it's dark red blood - not brown like yesterday :S Still just some slight cramping.... nothing that normally accompanies my period.... and the blood is only when I wipe... nothing heavy and nothing on my underwear. I'm so confused :S I think I need to stop reading into it all and see what tomorrow/tonight bring :( ugh

Hi all! AF came to town last night...... It's like this whole thing was just a cruel joke :,(. I'm so devastated and frustrated I really don't know what else to do. DH is amazing and has been so understanding and supporting through this whole thing. We decided this next cycle I'm not going to temp or opk or anything.... We are just going to do it the old fashioned way. We are hoping that will help me not stress too much!

I love you all and thank you for your support and kindness over these last few days. In so happy for everyone getting BFPs, but it also reminds me that I'm just not. I'm going to take a week or two break from the boards just to decompress. I will be back soon, I just wanted to thank you all for everything!! Keep getting those BFPs while I'm away so we can start 2013 right!!! Love u all!
