Tomorrow I'd be starting week number six. I'm afraid to take a test because all the negative results I've had in the past months. I was wondering if I was being paranoid and I should go buy one right away because all the time that has passed. What do you think???

Hi Elaine, Have you gone to the doctor for a blood test, that could be your best bet at this point, I would be highly frustrated as well!! When was your last period?

 

Elaine - January 13

My last period was Dec 10

Oh! So really your only 19 days past ovulation, if I'm correct??? It could still be too early! Because if you indeed did concieve it takes about 12 days for the egg to makes it's journey while it is spliting into millions of cells and then embed, so really you can't detect hcg until the placenta develops which produces hcg in your bloodstream. So if you concieved later than anticipated it really could still be too early. Because I'm guessing you ovulated around the 23-25 but that's by the book, our bodies are soooo unpredictable!!! You could of ovulated five days later!! Who knows! Just be patient!! Are you having any symptoms?

The only symptoms I've had are that my b___sts hurt so much and every day I feel like my period is coming but it doesn't. The thing that's different this month is that I've never experienced this pains in my b___sts before...

You should go right away and buy a test. It's been 35 days since your last period. I think that's a long time!!!

That sounds promising!!! It never hurts to give it a try!!!

NEWS: I just went to buy a test. I took it and it was positive!!! The line is not as dark as the control one, but it's definetly there. It's no faint or light, it's just not as intense as the other one!!!! I'm going to buy another one, and tomorrow I'm going to get a blood test just to be sure!!!! I'm so happy!!!

Congrats, Elaine! I wish I had some of your patience!! I am only 9-10 dpo, and so darn impatient!------- Payton, your 2nd post is very interesting to me. Will you do me a favor, and check out my post in this same forum? It's t_tled "WHO HAS HAD A FALSE NEGATIVE BLOOD TEST???". It's interesting what you say here about the placenta and hcg, etc. Will you check out my post and let me know what you think, and maybe tell me some of those time frames (placenta developing, etc)...... THANKS!!!!
