I've had a regular 34-day cycle since October. Well.
Oct - Nov. was normal. Dec. 4, I had emergency laparotomy to remove a ruptured ectopic, but got to keep my tube.
Jan. 18, I got AF. 34 Days later, as normal, I got AF again on Feb. 21.
I normally spot on cd34 and begin AF the next day, and I always have cramps 1-2 weeks leading up to AF, swollen, sore bbs, moodiness.
But this cycle, I've got NOTHING. No swollen/sore bbs, no cramps, no spotting, no AF.
I don't know when I O'd this time. I'm pretty sure I did, since I had O pains a bit ago, but I forgot to mark down when I had it. O__O;;
But I was good at documenting all the days DF and I bd.
BD: CD6, 8, 11, 13, 15, 16, some days between, 24, 26, 28, 33, 34.
Heh. I almost want to ask if too much BDing can delay AF... But I'd feel stupid.
I'm just so tired of jumping on the scare wagon only to fall off very ungracefully. >>;;
But that tiny hopeful part of me wonders if there could be a little sea monkey swimmin' around in there or if I'm just thinking too much.
I haven't really had any symptoms of ANYTHING lately, except for gradually (over the last week) being increasingly EXHAUSTED, serious gas (sorry TMI) and just an hour or two ago I got the WORST heartburn. I can't even burp to relieve it it's so awful!
Any guesses to where dear AF could be, or if maybe it's my month?
I haven't yet! I'm kind of afraid to test and get a scary BFN. Even though we're only NTNP, it'd still be, obviously, life-changing to get a BFP.
I'm trying to relax, wondering if maybe getting all excited about being late maybe is delaying it or something... But my cycles have been a solid 34 days for the last while! And I've never NOT had PMS symptoms.
wow you have some amazing willpower! i can understand wanting to wait for those reasons, though. i've been thinking i'm crazy the past couple days, but when i get to af due date i will prob poas every time i go to the bathroom
why not get a blood test since they're more sensitive? i'm going to be anxious for you until i find out! good luck!
And I'm waiting to get a blood test, too. See, I'm about to spend about a hundred plus dollars making prints of art I've done to sell at this convention coming up April 6-8th. So, I'm trying to conserved my funds. And besides, I don't want to go get a $30 blood test (my copay is silly!) just to have it be too early...!
I HAVE to have willpower, or I'd go nuts! Hahahaha.
Ohhh, yeah that makes sense. That is crazy to have to pay $30 though. I live in WV and work at a drs office. We can bill insurance for ua/blood tests but you don't have to pay your copay since you are just getting labs done and if you pay just straight out of pocket, no ins involved its only $11 period, no underlying charges. Maybe you should call around and see .if anyone around there works that way for whenever you are ready to test.
This is our first pg "scare" if you can call it that. I've never kept track of my cycles but after some major research and thankfully being able to track my past periods by holidays and important dates I'm pretty sure I have a 26 d cycle and if that is true then I am due next wed. We bd'd last week, we have been pulling out for nearly 4 years without incident, but this time he didn't get it in time. It was no biggie until 3 days later I felt my typical ov pains. I was really scared about it at first, but we have always talked about having kids, we were just going to wait another 2-3 years. Now we are both ecstatic and hopeful and he already said if it was bfn this time, we would actually try next month. I've decided to start testing Sunday and we'll see how it goes.
Sorry for the book. It's just really nice to have someone to talk to since no one else knows.
Oh, don't worry about it. I like to read and write, but I'm always afraid of other people getting on to ME about writing a novel! :P
Awwwww, that's exciting! Yeah, I'm pretty sure my DF didn't want to actually start trying for another 2-3 years, buuuuuut he lets me have my way a little bit. He knows how badly I want little ones, and he wants them, too, he just wants us to have a house first. But I'm impatient and overly optimistic, I guess. So right now we're not even thinking too much about the possibility of being pg BUT the longer I wait, the higher my hopes get. I'm late! And don't feel as if AF is coming at all! Of course my hopes are wanting to burst through the roof, hahaha.
Oooh, sounds exciting! I would love to start testing Sunday, but I promised DF I would wait until at least Tuesday, when I would be 1w1d late. I've been being silly though and looking up an estimation of when I would be due if we ARE pg...
The dates are all a little varying, but one of the EDDs was December 4th. That would make EXACTLY a year from when I lost my first "baby". December 4th, I had an ectopic pregnancy rupture in my right fallopian tube and had to have an emergency laparotomy. I got to keep my tube, though, and I would have only be 3-4 weeks along, so it wasn't even a viable child... But still, y'know?
So I'm REALLY hoping this has been my month. It would be amazing to have the baby a year after going through such a horrible thing. Maybe it sounds morbid, but I don't mean it to be sad.
oh my gosh you are insane! lol. of course you're hopeful and from what i can tell, it sounds very promising for you! I'm so excited to find out your results. i wish i could poas for you haha.
I'm so sorry about your last pregnancy. I can't imagine having to go through that. Idk what I would do or how I would make it through.
& for what it's worth, I don't think it's at all morbid to hope for the Dec 4th due date. I think that would be a really, really special thing, and it's something that I, personally, would share with my child when they got old enough to understand. I think it would make the bond between the three of you even stronger, not that you intentionally tried to make it that way, but that it's one of those wonderful crazy coincidences.
On a lighter note, I'm way earlier in my cycle than you, and I've already done the due date calculators! haha. I grow increasingly hopeful by the minute, and I'm afraid now that a bfn would destroy me. =/ Anyway, my EDD would be Dec 15th..IF.. and that's 3 days before my bday
I hope this weekend soars by so we can both test and hopefully get the +++ we are hoping for
