I ALWAYS run a 25 day cycle.  so this month I have had strange symptoms, and was suppost to start my period yesterday on the 8th,  nothing yet. This is very uncommon for me,  I took a test 3 days before my period it came out negative,  have gotten so many BFN, and afraid to take another,  how long should I wait to take another if I don't start soon????

Remember bfn is really a bfm (a maybe!) so your not out yet. I wouldn't be able to resist doing one tomorrow! Good luck x

(I had bfn 2days before and only really faint bfp 2days after.)

I have a question....  If I go by the first day of my last period, then Saturday would be 4 weeks.  If I test today which is the 10th would that be to early even though today I am 3 days late on my cycle???  I don't want to test to early even though I am having NO SYMPTOMS of a period coming on..

I hear ya......Im thinking I should wait for my next cycle. Im frustrated because I'm having cramping (light....doesn't hurt at all) but I'm not peeing a lot, no sore boobs , no nausea. I hate waiting but I'm hoping for the best. I'm looking forward to your results!

You should be able to test now. Make sure you test with your first morning urine. Good luck! I'm so excited and I just can't hide it!

was at Walmart and walked over to the HPT isle and walked away,  then back, then away.  Then back and grabbed one after all that.  Lol.  Couldn't decide if I wanted to buy one now or wait till later.  Now that I have it I just might test in the morning idk yet for sure, might wait till Friday.  Have t decided.  But will definitely keep u posted.  The only symptoms I have r boobs r a little soar, had a sensation in my nipples and Areola area yesterday,  felt like pins and needles poking them, have had a headache today, insomnia like CRAZY.  Light cramping, gas.  Ok it's 6:55am and I haven't been to sleep and I just peed again,  how long do I need to wait to take test in between peeing???

It would've been best to use first morning urine.

Does any one honestly think it might be my age is why it's not showing up like it should?? (44).
Blank
Avatar_n_tn
Dang it! I'm not sure but it may be too early..... I'm 35 and I'm thinking maybe Its just all in my mind. But.... Only time can tell . Another factor is you didn't use the morning urine.

I work nights I get off late I can't sleep at night I never get to sleep before 6 or 7 am in the morning.  So how do I do that.   Will wait till Sunday and try again,  maybe Monday.  It might all be in my head to.   I want this so bad.  Maybe I just want it to bad.  But the thing is I NEVER am late or miss any of my periods.....I try not to think about it....

My birthday is this month and that would be so GREAT to get a BFP...

Avatar_n_tn
I hear ya! I'm in the same boat! Didn't miss a period though. Just spotted. No major cramps like normal. I want it but I'm thinking it's impossible cause I'm 35.

Here is my  Delima also girls.  I miscarried with my first baby over 20 years ago.  Had my second  child about 4 tears later after that, miscarried again with my third baby about 4 years later. Then had my fourth child shortly after that.  And had another baby again 7 years later with no miscarriage in there, I'm scared if I am pregnant I need to find out because I am high risk and its scaring me, especially at my age.  Even though I do not feel my age at all....

All I do is talk I know and probably driving u all crazy but I am having so much confusion,  my last period was so ABNORMAL just so out of the ordinary.  NOT NORMAL AT ALL.  This month 3 days late,  but not into it enough to know if it is abnormal.  I'm so confused.  Can anyone help me understand?????

I hope I don't sound rude but just by reading your posts you sound very stressed and anxious. Do you normally feel anxious or stressed? I know it's hard not to think or worry all the time but I know I personally think about it most all the time. Just that can through your cycle off just the slightest bit. I know when I thought I might be prego I was very very in tune to everything not normal! So sorry for your disappointment and I'm praying for you!

Avatar_f_tn
Yes but even them they r never off like that.... And according to my ovulation calendar it says  Suppost to ovulate tomorrow is that normal the day after u start????
Blank
Avatar_f_tn

Blank
Avatar_f_tn

Mia, is your peroxide flow normal? Or is it lighter than normal and brownish? Could it be implantation bleeding? Or is t actual period?
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
I don't know what peroxide flow is??  And it's nothing at all like what I usually do.  This is day 2  an I am keeping a close eye I it, color flow and how long it will last.  
Blank
1907180_tn?1329454377
Sorry, my autocorrect changed the word. Peroxide flow was suppose to be normal period flow. I found when I was first pregnant I have brown spotting for 2 around 3 weeks or so. I was worried I was going to lose baby. But it just ended up being implantation bleeding.
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
It's just light, I can change maybe once they the day,  when usually I go thru a box if tampons on like 2 or 3 days.  And it's so bad I have to wear a pad doubled up with the tampon.  Nothing like that at all the last two months at all.   Just very light.

you do have a short cycle, so maybe giving it a couple more days, and see what happens, or call the doctors and see if they will run a blood test for you?
Blank
Avatar_f_tn
Yes I will wait a couple  more days to see what happens. I am going home next weekend. So maybe I can get I to see a doctor....

Update ladies.  I was Suppost to start my period on the 8th but started on the 11th and always run a 25 day cycle the 8th would have been 25 days.  So my period has been lighter than usual, and have had very little I'f no clots. No cramping accept for the week and half before my period started, it was low an painful, which I never get that early. Have been reading over 100 post on women who have bled and still to find out they r pregnant,  it is just out of the norm for me to have such light periods and no clotting like I usually do.  The only symptoms I think I might have are headach. Lower back pain alot, stuffy dry nose for weeks now, ringing in ears and what I think is sensitive hearing lately.  It's so weird,

A light period doesn't mean you're not expecting.  A blood test would also give you an accurate result.
