Hi everyone, I'm new here :).
A little background: DH and I are on month #3 of TTC #2, we got pregnant with #1 on the first try and have never had any fertility problems. My normal cycle is 30-33 days, I am not charting right now.
Last Friday was day 30, today I am on day 35. If AF doesn't come today, this will be my longest cycle in the 16 cycles I've had since DD was born. I always have the same physical symptoms before getting AF, and I have had none of them this cycle. Honestly, I feel the way I did when I found out I was pregnant with DD - slightly heavier breasts and nothing else. I've taken too many tests to count in the last week, and all have been as negative as they come, not even a squinter in the bunch.
I did something dumb yesterday and took and OPK and it was very, very positive. So now I'm completely confused, since I know that OPK tests can detect either the ovulation or the pregnancy hormone. It would be extremely unlikely that I am ovulating now, wouldn't it?? But if I'm pregnant, shouldn't it show up on a more sensitive HPT??
Ugh, so confused. What do I do now? Do I just wait and keep taking HPTs? Go to the walk-in clinic and ask them to do a blood test? I got my +ve with DD when AF was a week late (but I hadn't tested at all previously), should I wait until Friday (or after the weekend) to consider it a definitive result??? I know I've heard that if you're not charting, you should wait until 19 days after having unprotected sex to test for a conclusive result, the latest date that gives me is Friday. What is the latest I could realistically expect a positive test??
I'd really appreciate advice from anyone who has been here before! TIA :).
