CD36 and still no AF

I have a 31 day cycle, and I'm now on day 36 with no AF. BFNs every day, and chart was not good this month so I was convinced I was out. There have been signs that AF is coming. Sore bbs, backache, wicked cramps last weekend, mood swings, though these could all be signs of pregnancy too.

I don't want to get my hopes up, but what's happening here?! 1 or 2 days late I could understand, but 5 days and not even a spot?!! However, if there was a pregnancy to report then surely the sticks would be showing positive by now?! :-(

CONFUSED!!!!

I think I would call the doctor soon - perhaps they have a more sensitive test they could perform? Have you had success with hpts before? Maybe they don't work for you. I hope you get answers soon - hopefully BFP

Have you been stressed? I've had regular cycles my whole life and once I went 61 days without AF showing. I still dont know what happened but.. I think it was stress for me. Like newlywed said, maybe hpts wont work for you, i've heard that. Hope this is your month!!

Maybe you should go have a blood test done. I have a friend who didn't get a positive pee test until her second trimester. :smileyhappy:

That is so frustrating! What CD did you O on? Did you O later than usual?

Thanks for your support everyone.

I'm on CD38 now and still nothing. With my DD and DS I used hpts at around 5 weeks pregnant and they were very strong positive...both showed up almost instantly.

I don't feel stressed as such, though I know that the body can be sensitive to even the tiniest amounts of strain. I'm trying not to think about it or get my hopes up but I just keep thinking 'you're not out until AF shows'. I dont even feel pregnant though, no sickness or anything, which came very early on with DD and DS and was bad.

My chart looked really bad this month. Had the temp dip and rise indicating ovulation, but couldn't get a strong line on an opk, DTD every other day, but temp plummeted shortly after 'ovulation' and stayed low then rose and fell again. I had made my peace with this cycle 3 weeks ago, I considered myself to be out and was just relaxing and waiting for AF so I really don't know if stress is a factor. Oh I don't know :-( This sucks. Me and DF have been arguing this weekend too, he's clammed up about this whole TTC thing and had bottled lots of feelings that came out this weekend. :-( He thinks it's him as I've been pregnant before.

I have an appointment with my doctor on Weds morning. Will keep you posted.
