Yes, I know nobody can tell me if I'm pregnant...but has ANYONE been REALLY late before getting a BFP? How often should I test? The hpt's are getting pricey so I finally ordered 12 strips from online for a few bucks...but sheesh.
Right now I am 19 days late. I have taken many tests. Before someone asks, my doctor doesn't want to do a blood test yet until I am a month late since occasionally you can miss a period for no good reason. Normally, I would accept that as face value...and I did. I was thoroughly convinced I was not pregnant...
Well, then I started waking up in the morning thinking "Wow, I feel like I haven't even slept...it must be early" only to see that DH let me sleep til noon. I don't sleep til noon! How did that happen?
A few days later I was working and suddenly my boobs were just throbbing. Not like the obsessive "Oh, did that hurt? Was that more sensitive than usual" all in your head BS... like they REALLY hurt. Whether I was thinking about it or not. "Okay..." I thought. "AF is probably coming...that's why my boobs hurt...just a coincidence."
Two days after THAT I woke up wanting to puke. Again, not like when you ask yourself if you feel nauseated which causes you to feel slightly nauseated...this was pretty blah. I had to stay in bed for a couple extra hours and then I got up and forced food down my throat and felt better until that evening when it happened again. Now I just have off and on periods of nausea and then I'm fine.
Backed up plumbing? Check. Heartburn? Check. Getting pissed off for no reason (typical of pregnant me) check! Then today, I wake up feeling like it was literally 200 degrees in the house even though it was no hotter than usual...I had to stand outside in the nearly freezing temperatures to cool off.
For now, I've just been told to pretend I'm pregnant until something happens. If I'm not pregnant, then I'm really worried about what is going on with me. My doctor doesn't seem concerned and is just all "wait and see." All tests have been negative so far. One friend tells me your hpt can be off by WEEKS sometimes...another says I would have gotten a bfp by now.
And if it would never in a million years show up THIS late, does anyone have any idea what would cause all these symptoms aside from a bun in the oven?
Seriously, every time I get calmed down and just decide to wait for AF because I'll be convinced she's coming... some new and exciting symptom shows up and confuses me all over again. I've done the "all in your head" symptoms thing...but this ain't it. I didn't even WANT to be pregnant. At this point, I don't care one way or another... I just wanna be done with this!
