So DP and I are trying to conceive. I am fairly certain I felt ovulation happen on 6/30. We dtd several times in the days surrounding that. I am nauseas, exhausted, dull cramps since 5 dpo, increased white CM, absolutely no sign of AF. I just "feel" pregnant (or at least I did until all these BFN's started making think I am totally insane)
I was checking cervical mucous during my cycle but not temping. I had EWCM the three days leading up to when I felt ovulation. Here I am, 18 dpo, with too many negative tests and an AF that is 4 days late....I think the most frustrating thing of it all is that I have had, no lie, 6 different people all tell me that they feel like i'm pregnant, that I have that pregnant glow or they somehow intuitively know I'm pregnant and they didn't even know we were trying to conceive. When it came up they all had the same response of, "I was wondering when you were going to tell me! You're totally already pregnant, just go pee on a stick already!" When I randomly got a text message from a dear friend telling me I needed to go pee on a stick because she just knew I was pregnant, I decided this is all getting to be comical how certain everyone seems. I think their validation of the fact that I have felt pregnant for the last week is only making me feel crazier! If I'm not pregnant, I just wish AF would show up already so I can move on. But I feel like until I start bleeding its hard to trust the negative tests.
I had one $store test yesterday that was either a very faint positive or an evaporation line, but FRER was negative this morning. With my other three kids I definitely had a positive test by now. I've definitely heard stories of women getting really late BFP's but at what point do I stop holding out hope for the results to change?? This whole process is totally crazy making!!
