Hey there everyone! I'm new to this site, but not to TTC. My husband and I have been trying off and on for a year and a half now. I say "off and on" meaning, some months we were crazy with trying everything possible, and other months we had the idea of "well... if it happens...". So far, nothing. I'm 28, husband is 31. Been married for almost 2 years, with 2 dogs and 2 cats. We both have full time jobs.
My hopes haven't been up in months and months, but this cycle seems different. Usually AF starts RIGHT on schedule, with spotting 1-2 days before. Today, is the day AF is due, and I'm 15 DPO. There's been NO sign of AF at all... not even spotting. It's also pretty typical for me to have "phantom symptoms", but this month really has been different. I've had HORRIBLE gas for the last week, which is seriously unusual for me. I got dizzy twice today, and have been having random bouts of nausea for the last 2-3 days (this one is weird though considering even the earliest of morning sickness starts around 3 weeks, right?)
I've been testing daily for the last 3 days. However, I got the cheap strips from Amazon when we first started trying and the expiration was 4/13. Also, I must have the tiniest bladder in the world as I never go more than 2-3 hours without peeing (even at night) so I'm not sure that even FMU is concentrated enough.
All of the BFNs and no AF is starting to drive me crazy. Anyone in the same boat? Cycle buddy? Anything?
Is it possible to re-test with another brand of pregnancy test?
Any word, BabyButterfly? tracyamber is right. You might have better luck with a First Response or Clearblue test. Good luck!
