Joy. On CD36 - Period was due yesterday. I chart (fertilityfriend.com) So I know I ovulated on CD23. My luteal phase (time between ovulation and beginning of period) is never more than 11 days, but now I'm on 13 DPO. I always have spotting for 2 days before my period comes in full force, and I have had NOTHING but the barest speck 3 or 4 days ago.
We weren't actually trying to get pregnant...just not really preventing. If I'm pregnant, my hubby has super sperm, because the only unprotected sex we had was 4+ days before ovulation.
Considering the timespan between "insemination" and ovulation, pregnancy doesn't seem like a very likely possibility. I have NO symptoms other than the missed period. No tender breasts, no unusual gassy-ness, no frequent urination, no nausea.
But considering the fact that I'm very familiar with my cycles and know for a fact when I ovulated...it seems like the only possibility. I didn't have any symptoms with my daughter, either, until around 6 weeks - just the conspicuous lack of spotting. With her, I didn't get a positive pregnancy test until 18DPO. So right now...I'm waiting. If I test tomorrow and it's negative, it will just drive me crazy(er). So I'm trying to hold out and wait until Wednesday, and if AF doesn't show, then test. *sigh* Anyone else waiting???
