WTT But Late Period


Just want to get this off my chest... We are WTT to pay off some home renovations we did over the summer. We use the withdrawal method, and we have for years with no problems. My husband hurt his back running last month, so we didn't even DTD during my estimated fertile days. I say estimated, because the only way I am tracking is my iphone app. We did however DTD 6 times between cycle day 4 and 12 (sorry tmi) and once more on cd 26. I am thinking there is NO WAY I could be pregnant. I did test on Wednesday (two days before my period was due), because I spent too much time on here. I was not surprised to see a BFN. My cycle is on average 31 days. My shortest cycle in the last year has been 29 days, and my longest cycle has been 36 days. Last time I tested on cycle day 36 I got my period a couple minutes later.

Not sure when I will test again if AF doesn't show. CD 36 is Tuesday. It will be definitely before Christmas. (I want to make sure I am allowed to have my Christmas morning mimosas!)

Let me just say I would be thrilled if I were pregnant since I am 34, and I have never attempted to get pregnant before. BUT it's not really in our plans for a few months, and I was looking forward to the excitement of trying.

well being ready in a few months isn't so bad if you are preggers now.

I'm torn for you! excited if you do get a BFP but ... happy if you get your mimosa!

you could always make it with sparkling juice if you do get the BFP

good luck

Ya, it wouldn't be so bad if it happened now. I still just don't see how it is possible. Good idea on the sparkling juice I don't want to start my Christmas morning empty handed!

Just a thought but if your average cycle is 31 days then you could have ov'd around cd17. Given that sperm can live up to 5 days that would make cd12 a potentially fertile day for you...
Hope you get the result you want. Keep us all posted!!

AF was due on Thursday. I decided to test again today. It was late afternoon pee (TMI), and it looked pretty diluted. I just figured that if I am that many days late if I was pg then it would have showed no matter what. Not even the faintest hint of a line. Still no sign of AF, but I have a feeling she is going to show up soon. Tomorrow will be cycle day 36. If she doesn't show then it would be my longest period in at least a year. (I didn't start tracking until last December.)

I haven't really been doing any other symptom spotting, but if I think really hard about it nothing seems to add up to pg. I had super sore bbs from Saturday to Wednesday- now just slight discomfort on one side, super dry in the CM dept (again sorry TMI), and now I feel like I am getting a bit of a cold. (store throat and a headache).

I am wondering why my cycle is so long. I used to be standard 31 days. Even before I was tracking that seems about right. Only a couple of things I can think of that would throw it off. Last month is was only 29 days, so maybe it is just trying to reset itself. And, I am pretty sure I had a chemical back in August. I got a positive test on CD 32, and then negative on 33. Then AF on CD 34. Oh, and my final theory... that I think SO much about having a baby that my body is trying really hard to make me happy even if the stars aren't aligning just right.


If this isn't it. I don't like to think that I have an irregular cycle. I'm worried that might make it harder once we actually start trying.

So, AF finally arrived today.

It would have been amazing if I were pregnant, but I still have good news.

1. Mimosas for me Christmas morning!
2. I don't feel sad, because I didn't "feel pregnant" they way I felt in August.

Moving on... super motivated to pay of the rest of the renovations now!
