BFN 12DPO- is it still possible I’m pregnant?

Hey :)

My cycle lasts anywhere from 25 to 29 days- different each month. Last cycle was 25 days. This cycle the predicted ovulation was CD11.
It’s now 12DPO and I have had cramping for the last three days. I’ve also had the letdown sensation and sensitive breasts since like 5DPO (which isn’t typical of me before a period).
With my last pregnancy I got a clear BFP on 11DPO.
All the symptoms make me feel I am, but after today’s BFN and that fact that last time I had a positive earlier I’m losing hope. Anyone else been in a similar situation and gotten a BFP later?
I’m due on Sunday according to my last short cycle but could be Wednesday if I go 28 days this time.

To add... I haven’t been temping properly this cycle as we went away and I forgot my thermometer.

I think if you are unsure about ovulation then anything is possible. I think 12dpo is a reasonable time to test when you know for sure ovulation date. Given your cycle fluctuates, give it a few more days and see how you go. Good luck!

I was in a similar position and it turned out that I must have ovulated almost a full fortnight after I thought I had (despite fairly predictable 28ish day cycles previously!). My BFN turned into a BFP a few weeks later (I thought I just had a really long cycle...), and I'm now 34 weeks pregnant :)
My first pregnancy was textbook. Tested at first day of missed period, had a strong BFP and so on... so weird how every pregnancy is so different!

It really depends on when implantation happened and how fast the HCG is increasing after implantation.
With my second, I had negative tests from 10-12dpo, then a positive at 13dpo!
With my third I had a positive at 9dpo!
You aren't out yet, all the best.

Any changes?? Good luck!

On CD27 today and still no AF, still crampy and tired with the letdown feeling. But! Still testing BFN so I reckon it’s a longer cycle for me this month and potentially a bad one because of all these symptoms 😩
