My period is late .... Thought that was amazingly fantastic, I'm must be pregnant .. Right?!
Nope, I have take 9 pregnancy tests and every single one has come up negative.  I feel like the past 2 wks I have been consumed by ovulation research, baby talk & even baby names.  
Maybe me stressing about being pregnant has made my period late???
Has this happened to anyone else or am I going bonkers?!

Yes, Yes, I skipped a whole period and no pregnancy. Went to the doctor every week all negative. The stress of life just added to my tears .

How late? It took me being nearly 10 days late before I got BFP so dont let it get to you just yet test again in a few days from now and see how you go. Fingers crossed for you that you get an answer one way or the other just to put your mind at ease. biggrin.gif

The first month we tried to conceive my period was 7 days late. I'd been off the pill for 4 cycles and I could set my watch to my period. It's never been late my entire life.

HPT every couple of days and still nothing. I booked a doctors appt for the Monday but over the weekend my period arrived. I put it down to a blighted ovum, early miscarriage.

Sorry to say, but my first cycle TTC was a bit longer than normal. Usually a 28 or 29 day girl, but that month was 32 days. Got me all excited of course, but BFN sad.gif

Even thought it may be hard, I'd recommend waiting four days, then if your period still hasn't arrived, test again. At least you'll save some money by not testing every few hours. It's not unusual to have a bit of a change in your cycles due to stress (which can happen when TTC).

Best of luck original.gif

I haven't had a period for 4 months... everytime I would get my hopes up and think that I had a few symptoms but were most likely me over thinking it.

good luck remember not getting a period every now & then is 'normal' and nothing to worry about

I've had 27-30 day cycles the past 12 months since coming off the pill, for some reason this one looks like its going to be around 6 weeks! Not TTC for another couple of months but I'm sure if I were this month I'd think it had worked!

I love this thread considering your BFP news!
How many sticks did it take Sarz? And how many days late was AF when you got it?
