14DPO!!! Freaking out!

Ok, so now I am 14dpo and I am scared to death to take an HPT!! My AF is due today, no signs yet, but it is still early in the day where I am. My temp was up this am and I have heard that your temp is supposed to drop right before AF. My normal temp is about 93.1-97.5 (usually low) and the last 2 days it has been  about 98.0-98.1. Is that triphasic? AHHHH I am going crazy. My cervix was low this am and now its high and soft. Any thoughts?

I took an HPT yesterday and got an BFN, and I just cant bring myself to take one today. Should I wait all day to see if AF shows up and then use FMU in the morning tommorrow if she doesnt?

Thanks, Good luck to all!!! We are all in this together!!

Higher temps with a rising cervix and no AF are all VERY good signs.  

You could definitely try an "early detection" hpt today; you don't have to use FMU.

I would wait and use FMU tomorrow.  Just to be on the safe side.

GOOD LUCK

Wouldn't a early detection test have shown up yesterday? I took a FRER but not with FMU. Thanks

I understand what you're saying, but not necessarily.  The detection level is 25 mIU on that brand.  If you were lower than that the test would be negative.

I've actually heard conflicting stories about First Response tests.  I personally don't buy that brand because of what I've heard.  I've had great luck with Answer brand.

Try again tomorrow, the hcg (if any) has had time to double.  Good luck and baby dust!!!!!!!!!!

I tried those early tests too and the all came out negative....  I was a week late and FINALLY saw a positive....went to the Doctor's to have it confirmed.  So, I don't trust those early detections!

I got early results with the normal ept test, so it might be one to consider.  Use fmu in the morning.  Good luck!

You need to stop stressing over the cervical position. It is one of the worst indicators of pregnancy. I worked 5 years in ob-gyn so I tell you this from experience.  Every woman is different some are pregnant and it is still low and firm where others it sits high and soft. In pregnancy it does move up but that differs per each women per pregnancy.   Also the more it is checked the more likely it will be poked too much and cause some light bleeding.

Leave the almighty cervix alone and wait until AF is late then take a pregnancy test.

You can request a blood preg test for a definite answer. Or like me in prior months you may have a delayed period or a missed period. Are you sure you are ovulating? Do you take your temps?
I know how frustrating it is trying to get preggers, I went through months of trying and I am certainly not trying to burst your bubble but this month may not be the one.

There is no possibility of pregancy if you are not ovulating. It is also quite common to miss a period if there is no ovulation. a doctor can prescrbe provera to bring on a period and Clomid to bring on ovulation. When taking your temp it needs to be done on cycle day 1 which is the very first day of your period with actual flow spotting does not count.

WELL I POSTED CERVIX QUESTION. AND IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN CHECKING YOUR CERVIX YOU REALLY WOULDNT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. BUT YOUR SUPPOSE TO HAVE CLEAN HANDS AND USE YOUR MIDDLE FINGER. THEY SAY ONE FOOT ON THE TOLIET IS THE BEST WAY AND YOUR CERVIX IS SUPPOSE TO SIT HIGH AND SOFT. I HOPE THAT HELPS
