I am 22 (23 in 2 months) and recently married. We just started to research pregnancy and birthing options to ready ourselves for when we were ready to start trying for a baby. Well, my day I was suppose to get my period came and went. The next day came and went. And so on and so forth. I am 3 days late. I get my period every 24-26 days. I am on day 28 and still do not have it. I know my body and I get very bad cramping, breast tenderness and mood swings the whole week of my period. This month I had no PMS symptoms. Last monday however, I did smell chicken that put me off and Saturday (the day I should have got my period) I was very emotional. I did a pregnancy test yesterday and today and both were negative.
I am just curious how many people had negative results and for how long. When does the nausea start (if I am one of the LUCKY ones who get it....HA Ha HA...just kidding) I am going out of the country in 3 weeks and am nervous about being away for 16 days and possibly experiencing all those symptoms.
Another question: Who has done natural/home birth or is looking into doing it? How does it work with insurance?
And what literature or websites are good? I live in New Jersey and have Aetna.
Thanks so much!
