Period didn't show and having lots of symptoms

AF was supposed to show up 2/16 but I still no sign of her. Having a lot of nausea, cramping/ abdominal pain, breast tenderness and very moody. I took a hpt yesterday morning but it was a bfn. Is is possible that my hcg levels were just not high enough and I need to wait alittle longer before testing again. I have been this way for 2 days and I am miserable. What do you all think?

So hard to say if they're pg symptoms if you're not sure when you ovulated. It's possible that you O'd later than normal and it could just be AF symptoms. I would wait a few days and try testing again. It's early for symptoms, but some women do have pg symptoms earlier than others. Sorry I don't have better advice than testing again in a few days.

It is possible, but the same thing happened to me... AF just arrived late. :(

Keep us posted and so sorry you have to wait it out. AF can be so mean sometimes.

Thanks ladies,
I'm still miserable from cramping and now fatigue. I had to call off today because of how horrible I feel. BTW I never call off work and I love my job.
My fiance feels so bad also because he doesn't know how to help me. If af is coming I wish she'd get here.

hello!! i would test again. maybe tonight or tomorrow morning. i had this same experience in september. i was pretty sure i ovulated a week later than normal and there was a lot of CRAP going on that month...my period was supposed to show up on the 24th-26th and it didnt show. i had an exam scheduled at the gyno on the 30th. he did a blood test. it came back negative on monday...and finally on that day-af showed. then 3 1/2 weeks later, she showed up again. i felt like you did when i was pregnant with my first...i was always tired, i was sick from time to time, etc. i would call your dr to get a blood test if you keep feeling like crap and keep getting a bfn. i worked with a woman who had 2 kids and didnt find out she was pregnant with her 3rd until she was 6 months along. she had quit smoking and blamed that for the weight gain and the irritabilty. i dont know if she had af or not-but she did tell me she had taken quite a few hpt and they were all negative. take care!!

UPDATE: Still no af but the cramping has lessened. Its not completely gone but it is better. We did the deed on Jan 29 and I should have o'ed on Feb 1 or 2. My body is really good about telling me when af is on its way. Sore breasts for almost 2wks before and some mild irrationality. I usually have some brown show a day or two before also.
I have been horrible to be around and I think my kids and fiance are ready to move out. I have been easily upset and wanting to tackle all the household chores(you know the ones you say you'll get to on a rainy day) in one day.
Called my gyn and its going to be like $100 for a visit. I am currently uninsured because my job dropped our health coverage :( . I work for a doctor so I am going to take another hot tomorrow(1wk after af was supposed to show) and if it comes back a bfn, I'm going to see if I can have my Co worker draw my blood and pay the test fee. Well that's all for now, hopefullly I will have some news(good or bad) in a few days.

Thanks for all your concern

wow. that sucks about not having health insurance...theres always the health department too if you cant get your coworker to do it...or free clinics. but you definitely need to get a blood test. with my oldest, i had cramps for a few days then they went away...no af though. my period in september-i had a mild yeast infection and the doc said that could be why my period was a no show. i just think it was all the stress i was going through...hope you get the result you want:)

This is ironic because the EXACT same thing happen to me. I just wanted to get my period or be pregnant. I kept taking tests while I was waiting around for my period and that gets expensive. I got my period on the 22 and its kinda funny how the same thing happen to you. Sending baby dust your way. Maybe we will be on an EC since we are both dealing with AF. Are you going for next cycle??
