Hello,

I'm in need of some advice. AF hasn't shown up yet, 7 days late, been having light cramping off and on for the last 2 weeks or so. I'm not one to have PMS so... anyway I took a pregnancy test, I had one left... didn't remember opening it, but it was and has been for a while... since July of last year... SO should I just wait a few more days and take another one... just wait and see?

I'm such a bundle of nerves, I know stress can throw you off, and my doctor told me the last time I was late to just 7 days after I should have started and if nothing wait until the next month. It's normal to have a late period at least once a year...

For the first time in I don't know how long I'm happy and I can't stop it. And I'm talking about an inner happiness. While I'm not sure I want a baby with the man I'm with (really it's his family) I'm getting up there and as much as I tell myself I'm ok with never having a baby, down deep I desire it so much it hurts.

What did the pregnancy test that you took say? If you want to wait a few more days and then retest, that's one option. You could also request a blood test from your doctor if you don't trust the HPTs. Good luck!

It was neg, and my Dr. won't do a blood test if I don't have a positive HPT and or if I've missed 2 normal cycles.

At this point I've given up getting pregnant, I'm about to chalk it up to hormones even though it's not normal for me and just get on with things. If the dear man goes and gets a HPT I'll do it for him. It's not like it matters how much it hurts to see that single line...
