Just wanted to pop in here and say hello! I'm a nearly 30 year old Texas girl who's about to start trying to conceive with my husband of nearly 4 years. I've been off the pill since Dec. 26, and my last period ended Jan. 3. Haven't had a period or a single symptom since. We aren't planning to start "trying" until March, but we're not trying NOT to get pregnant either, if that makes any sense.

I guess my main worry is, well...should I worry that I've had no period yet? I'm overdue by nearly 5 days now. Then again, I was on BC for 10 years. When should I worry?

Sounds to me like you may have already gotten the job done!! Go buy a pregnancy test and pee on it already :) :) :)

Wouldn't I have other symptoms though?

Sorry if I ask stupid questions, but I literally have no women in my life right now to talk to about this!

I live in a small, tiny and gossipy town...not buying a test here or else it will be all over town that I'm pregnant, whether I am or not! Will do one tomorrow or Sunday after a trip out of town....Wish us luck!!!

^^^^^^^ This made me laugh! That's how I feel too! Exactly the reason I buy HPTs on the internet (and that

Hahaha!!! How adorable!! I just moved from the "big city" to a relatively small town... I am starting to 'get' that ;)

Good luck!! You might be one of those lucky ladies who doesn't get a load of yucky pregnancy symptoms... just a late period that turns into a BFP!! :)

Thanks, y'all! We're going out of town for a little bit tomorrow, so a stop in the "big city" for a test is in the plans. I'll report back....

I'm a bit late, but wanted to say hi and welcome! I have a lot of family in TX... do you mind if I ask where you are?

Good luck - can't wait to see if you got that BFP!

Tested today...BFN and no AF (did I get my letters right?!). So I guess it's just my body getting used to no longer being on BC.

I'm from north central Texas, kinda close to Wichita Falls.
