I haven't been lucky enough to ever get bfp yet, but sounds like your symptoms could be consistent with early pregnancy. You're only 11dpo though, which isn't particularly late into your luteal phase though - how long is your lp normally? It might be that tests just won't pick pregnancy up yet - if implantation only happens between 7dpo and 10dpo, then your hCG hormones might not be strong enough yet to be picked up on. Must be insanely hard, but can you hold off testing for a few more days, up to when your luteal phase would normally end? Hopefully a test will then scream out bfp to you!!!
Wishing you lots of luck!!! Keep us posted!!

In the same boat, tested 11 days DPO today and BFN. my cycles last around 25 days only, though. And I have some "supposed to be" small fibroids. I have a son who is 4 and was conceived on accident. But now I can't wait to get pregnant again! I will try to wait till August 21st to test again. Hoping not to get my period on the 20 th. Fingers crossed for both of us, starangels83!

Starangels83, I am feeling as if I am about to get my regular period, nothing different. Up to about four days ago I was having pins and needles in my breasts everyday in the evening, heightened sense of smell and runny nose and sneezing, cramping off and on very mild. This night my breasts bothered me and I am feeling abdominal discomfort and bloating... all pretty much the same of when AF is coming.
With my son, my periods were irregular due to a progesterone pill I stopped taking two months before. I ended up having unprotected sex in the 18th day of my cycle and 10 days after that, started to have sharp cramping on my left side, my breasts were so, and I was just feeling strange. I tested the next day and had a BFN, too. Tested on 13th day and got a faint positive, confirmed by other hpt and blood test. This time, I just don't feel like it happened, I am not feeling anything different. But good luck to you, dear! I will be cheering for you here!

Hi, starangels83! I am here still waiting for AF. Tested again today, at 13 dpo, and another BFN too, so now I am convinced it didn't happen. Only mild symptoms of PMS, as usual. This next month I will try not to get anxious or let "progesterone symptoms" fool me again. I was going crazy here, it was awful! Well, hope my AF comes soon so I can start over. I have an appt with OBGYN on de 6th to check the fibroids and my reproductive health in general. Good luck to us, dear! And hope you get either your BFP or at least your AF soon, too!
