late AF



**WARNING may contain TMI (too much info)** It is 2 in the morning and I am still awake. So much on my mind tonight. We have been TTC baby #3 for last 3 cycles. I am officially on CD 38. AF always shows up on CD 28. I have never been late or even skipped AF except when I was pregnant. I have taken multiple HPTs but have got a BFN everytime. I'm starting to get frustrated with the whole situation. My doctor finally agreed to see me but not until September 21st if AF doesn't show!!! I think I will lose my mind by then! LOL. I am not having any symptoms of AF even showing up...my chest ALWAYS hurts and I have cramping when I am going to get my period but I don't/haven't had either of those. I am having a few pregnancy symptoms but nothing to major. **WARNING may contain TMI (too much info)** For the previous 10 days I have been:
1.) Gassy, never had that problem before.
2.) Constipated, never had that before either.
3.) Headaches, they have been going on for a little over 2 weeks now and I never used to get headaches before.
4.) Bloated/Fullness
5.) Pelvic soreness, on a scale of 1 to 10, my pain would be about a 3 so nothing major.
6.) Sore nipples, weirdest thing ever.
7.) Increase in CM but it isn't the infection kind (no itching, foul smell, or funky color)
8.) Peeing every 2-3hrs which is driving me nuts lol, I'm used to going like every 5-6hrs.
9.) Fatigue during the day and then trouble sleeping at night (obviously if I am still awake lol)
So even though I am 9 days late, have no symptoms of AF coming, and have what could be some pregnancy symptoms I am still getting BFNs!!!! At this point I want to get my BFP or for AF to show up. Until either one of those happen I can't continue to actively TTC. UGH!!! I just want to make sure I don't have a cyst and that everything is working properly down there. If there is an issue I would like to get it fixed so we can resume TTC #3. I really really want to try and have a daughter but of course I would be just as happy/excited/pleased with a baby boy too :-)
