Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

My first time starting this thread.
Tested this morning as AF still not showed, but sadly not pregnant flashed up on my test. Feeling pretty crushed and a bit confused about where my AF is!
22/11/2013 at 09:19
So sorry to read this, how late are you?
22/11/2013 at 09:21
Thanks BK. I usually get AF any time between CD23-26 and I'm on day 26. Had symptons of AF on friday which I usually have a couple days before I come on, but that's now a week ago....

Cycles are very strange, fingers crossed strangeness equals a positive for you, I assume you'll be testing again tomorrow, good luck with that x
22/11/2013 at 09:41
Thanks BK. Do you really think worth testing again tomorrow? The test says it's 99% effective and I did it twice. Plus my CBFM is flashing up that my period is due.

Morning, happy Friday to you all!
CJ - Sorry it was neg, might be worth testing again in a couple of days if af hasn't arrived I'm sure there have been a few ladies on here who got bfns at first, fingers crossed for you xx
AFM - still spotting was hoping af would arrive properly today but not yet, hopefully tomorrow hate spotting it just seems to drag it out. Popping out at lunch to get some vit b complex so fingers crossed it helps.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend xx

Cd1 here. Pretty pissed.

Hi all. Still not come on and I'm getting really effin annoyed now. 2 days longer than my longest cycle in two years. Had a tiny amount of spotting this morning and my temp plummeted so I know it's on the way, but why does it mess up now. For a year or more Ive been between 24-29 and day 31 and still nowt. Sorry to hear about cd1's and none showing af's. I know how irritating it is.

*crash* Sorry to crash your thread ladies. CJ the Clear Blue Digital tests aren't as sensitive as some of the other tests. I had a positive on an ic and a FR and still a bfn on the CBD until the following day. I would maybe test with a FR if AF hasn't appeared tomorrow. Good luck!
22/11/2013 at 11:34
ahhh seems like a pretty sh*tty Friday for everyone.
Figaro - thanks for your comments - please excuse my ignorance but what is an IC and an FR? I tested at 5am this morning on a boots own brand and then convinced myself because it was a cheapie it may not be accurate so tried the CB which actually lovingly actually spells the words out for you "Not pregnant".... ;o(
You girls all think worth testing again tomorrow morning? Ha I was going to drown my sorrows tonight in some red wine but maybe not...
22/11/2013 at 11:43
Ic is Internet cheapy, FR is First Response - they're generally considered the most sensitive. You're not out until AF shows up CJ, no red wine for you tonight lol x

Veecee - so sorry it's cd 1, seems like there are a few of us at the same stage, let's hope it's bfp's all round next month xx
Vikster - Would it be worth you testing again just in case?
Hi Figaro! I hope you are well :-)
I would def say test again CeeJay if af hasn't arrive!
22/11/2013 at 14:18
I would test again tomorrow CJ, they don't always pick them up straight away.
Well lots of us in the same boat. Still a very small amount of spotting, but too be honest a small or large amount of spotting is still spotting. Just want af out of the way. It seems the pregnacare that I take has B6 & B12 so not sure if I can take another dose of both to help reduce the spotting (really wished I hadn't googled about it last night! No good can ever come from googling medical things!!)

Hi all, late again here since just woken up.
Really really sorry to hear about CD1 veecee.
Ceejay, I wouldn't test daily now if you can help it. Can you just wait until after the weekend to make sure that any positive does show?
Vikster, that's very frustrating, hope AF shows for you soon x
I'm CD14 and really not sure if I've ovulated or not to be honest. IC opks are consistently negative, while the still cheap midstream tests have a line that yesterday was darkish after a few mind and today is there but fainter. Neither were darker than the control line after 5 mins but yesterday was the same colour later on. Ewcm this morning but back to watery now. Anyway, I'll keep an eye on temps over the next few days and hopefully that should give answers. Meanwhile, still wearing OH out but told him he can have a rest over the weekend!! I feel optimistic this month for some reason, but don't want to since the disappointment will be worse. We're taking the camper to the Lakes this weekend and last time we went I was pregnant and we were having fun taking photos of "lentil's first mountain" etc. Hmm. Anyway, must dash, need to drop the cat off with my parents and do some shopping. I'll check in again after work on Monday when hopefully my temps will confirm ov. Xx

CJ - I'd give it a couple of days before testing again in case AF doesn't show up. ICs have a sensitivity of 10mIU whereas CBDs are 25mIU, making them less sensitive than ICs. Have some red wine tonight, even if you are pregnant, LO is taking their nutrients from the yolk sacs rather than you, so it won't transfer across. I have plenty of gin the day before I got my BFP with O. x
BK - That's annoying about the spotting and Google x
Lulu - Again, very annoying about the spotting x
VC - Big hugs xx
Vik - So annoying for you too x
AFM - Nothing much to report, I've been feeling sick and had cramps but I've also been feeling run down, like there's a cold just waiting to strike me down. I'm not due on till the middle of next week, so just counting down the days.

Barefoot - missed you there, fingers crossed for you and have a lovely weekend x
