Well, 19 DPO and BFN.
Sat, 12-03-2011 - 9:21am
Sorry I haven't been around, I have been in a total funk. I feel so ashamed. :(

But here we go ladies, take a look at my chart, I'm pretty sure my O date isn't wrong. I am 19 DPO with no AF or BFP. On 13 DPO I gave up testing and 14 DPO I stopped temping. My temp dropped slightly and I assumed it'd be on a steady decline and AF would arrive. Well she's still not here! So I started testing again on 17 DPO and I'm still getting BFNs. I took my temp today for the heck of it and it's 98.62! Grrrrr what the heck?! And during the days I wasn't testing I actually starting to convince myself I was pregnant because I had increase thirst and I wanted to put hot peppers on everything. I even convinced myself the IC's I bought were bad so I went and got FRERs and that was negative too!

What gives? I have an appointment with my OB/GYN on Tuesday but if AF still isn't here by Monday should I go in for a blood test? Is there something more serious going on here? Ugh, why has this been the worst cycle ever? :(

I think your chart looks great. I have a friend that never tested positive on a pee test with either of her two kids. She had to go get a blood test with both. I say have your ob run one on Tuesday or if you can't wait go to the health department on Monday. If af hasn't shown you are definitely not out! Fingers crossed for you.

Oh Lex, how confusing! I'm sorry you're having such a strange cycle. If AF still isn't showing by Monday, I'd get a blood test just so you can know what's up either way. Hang in there, being in limbo is the worst.

Don't be ashamed! Our bodies can play some cruel jokes on us to get our hopes up. I would be frustrated too. Fx that your appt brings good news or at the very least some answers for you as to why AF is a no show. Sending ~~~baby dust~~~ your way!!! KUP!

Sorry you've been in a funk. 19dpo is downright crazy!! I really hope you're just one of those girls that just takes forever to get a positive on an hpt...we know they're out there so why shouldn't you be one of them?

Hopefully af isn't being an effing wench & stays far, far away. Totally ask for a blood test on Monday. I'd also ask about the crazy long lp's -I know that clomid can do that, but I've always wondered why.

Fx'd for you hon! Btw I totally missed you around here!!

Lex I was wondering where you'd gone to. I hope that it just isn't showing up on a pee stick. I would ask for the blood test and at least you'll know. I'm sorry this feels like the worst cycle ever.

Hi Lex. I still drop by once in a while to check on a few of you. I wanted to let you know that a coworker of mine has 4 kids and NOT ONE of them ever came up + on a HPT for her! She ALWAYS had to go get a blood test. Weird, huh? But maybe you're like her! Def ask for a blood test when you go tomorrow if AF still hasn't shown! Good luck!!!

I agree with everybody else.

1) You poor thing. 19 DPO is way too long! You should have an answer by now!
2) A negative doesn't mean "no" it just means "no answer yet."
3) I know a lady that never got a positive with both pregnancies.
