    Hi all, I'm new to this board so be gentle with me. :blush:
    My last period started on 17 Sept and my cycle is normally 28-30 days long. Going by EWCM and ovulation sticks I think I OV'd between 5th and 7th of Oct (between last Sunday and Tuesday). I'm now on CD28 and no :witch: yet. I did a FR test today but :bfn:. On Sunday I had slight cramping and pulling in my lower abdomen, runny nose and breathlessness.
    When I was pregnant with my DD it took a while to show a :bfp: which I think is because I ovulate quite late in my cycle roughly CD20.
    I don't want to waste another test but I'm very impatient. :blush:

    hey i think you should leave it a few more days, you said your cycles can be 30 days so in theory you may not even be late yet. then again, a FR test would be likely to detect a pregnancy on day 28 of 30 day cycle. i would suggest waiting for a couple more days until AF is late then go in for a blood test at the doctors. i know its horrible waiting to test and the last thing u want anyone to say is to wait but other than that i dont know what to suggest. it can take women a long time to show a bfp so the longer you leave it the more your hcg levels will rise (if u r in fact PG) so will b easier to detect. good luck x
