Should I wait???

Ok so this is the question... By my calculations I'm 2 days late. At least from last month. The month before I had my period start the 27 th. Last month the 22nd, this isn't unusual for me to do at least once a year.
Should I wait a few more days or take a preg test?
I don't really have any other symptoms other than a back ache, being extremely tired once the afternoon hits, and feeling slightly sea sick for the last two days in the afternoon. Otherwise I'm feeling fine.

Hi there!

I think it is completely up to how long you are able to wait! I could never wait longer than one day of having a late period. I say, if you are fine waiting, give it a few more days. If it is driving you crazy and you want to know now, get a HPT and test- it'll give you some peace of mind. Best of luck to you and please let us know what you find out!

Ok I couldn't stand it and took the HPT. Came out neg. Mixture of emotions there. Still haven't started my period, tired like you wouldn't believe. Will take another test next week if no AF. Set to go to dr the 29 so I'll talk with them then.

Hang in there! The waiting game can be so difficult. I hope you get some answers next week either from the next test or from your doctor. Keep us posted!

Well I took another HPT on Monday. Still neg. Talked with dr. He said I'm not preg. and didnt feel the need to do a blood test. If I miss another period then maybe he might do a blood test. As he said... You just missed one it happens. So I guess with that I'm not preg. of which I'm somewhat releaved as now isn't a good time, but I'm also sad and weepy at the thought of not being. Silly isn't it? Oh well... I'm 35 and my clock seems to be ticking ever so loudly... Is it so wrong to hope for a little one??? Sorry... Just a flood of emotions here...

I can certainly understand the flood of emotions and it isn't silly to me at all. It sounds like you are really wanting a baby so maybe it is time to actively TTC (if you aren't already)? I hope you get some answers soon as to your missing period and hopefully this was a one-time thing. It's too stressful to go through more often! Huge (((HUGS))) to you!

If you didn't get your period then you probably didn't O. It must have been an annovulatory cycle. It is common for women to have 1-2 of those a year. I totally understand the emotions. I have been TTC my first for over 5 years now and it is a constant emotional rollercoaster. If you are wanting to TTC I encourage you to start charting your basal body temperature. www.fertilityfriend.com is a great site to use to get to know your fertility.
