So I figure that others may have some helpful nuggets of information. Wife normally has 28-29 day cycles. The 29th day would have been Tuesday. She has experienced no AF, no cramps, nothing. She was nauseous last week, dizzy, couldn't eat certain things. Took the test yesterday (1 day late) and it was negative. However, no spotting, no discharge, no cramps (which ALWAYS precede her flow). Could she be pregnant?
I have been telling the wife not to get her hopes up (too late) and I am trying to temper my own hopes as well since the odds are not in our favor. The one difference to some other stories I read is that my wife has not experienced ANY cramps or spotting, which always precedes her period (without exception). Other than that she has the odd food aversion but no symptoms.
Not really. Whats more we have been to a specialist who did an ultrasound and saw a follicle that was days away from being release and they did hormone tests which showed that everything was normal. So I think it unlikely that (but possible) that her ovulation was thrown off. This was done like 3-4 days before the doctor said ovulation looked like it was going to occur, which was about when it was supposed to.
Hmm difficult to say. Even if she did get cramps she could still be pregnant, I did - implantation pain!
BUT modern tests are very accurate (as long as the instructions say it can be used as soon as AF is late). Did she do the test first thing in the morning? Doing it at any other time is the number one reason for false negative tests.
Is she under any stress? I remember in my Uni days exam stress made me 10 days late.
No cramps at all punk. First thing in the morning yesterday (1 day late). BFN. We are scared to test again. She made an appointment for Monday to do a blood test. If she gets her cycle before then we cancel. Needless to say, her hopes are stratospheric since she has not had any indications at all that her period is coming. I cannot help but begin to be hopeful, in light of everything.
