Hi everyone, I still have not gotten my AF Monday will be two weeks. I have take two HTP and both have come out negative. I called the advice nurse last night because I am really stressing out about this. She told me to wait a week and then take another HPT and if that still comes out negative and not AF I will have to take a blood test. I hope the blood test is 100%. I am so sick of waiting and stressing.

The blood test tells you exactly the concentration of hcg in your blood. After I took a home pregnancy test I went to the emergency room on base and my levels were 128ml/miu (I think those are the units for hcg levels...don't remember) but it was 128. They also tested me like a week or 2 later and by then it was 4702. So, if you're pregnant, the blood test is the most accurate by far!

My second period was 2 weeks late so it could just be your hormones aren't back yet.

Oh yeah...I was off a little. the units of hcg are mIU/mL

also, stress can play a BIG role in AF not coming too. try to relax monica.

Don't stress yet! My 3rd period after the baby was two weeks late... Not sure why but all is well now!

I had a late period, too - but, when it came, it came exactly 14 days after I ovulated. :)

How soon after having your babies did AF return? I am almost 11 weeks after and still no AF.

 

Kristina - January 12

Cora, I am 10 weeks pp and I have not had a period yet either...however I bled for 8 weeks after!! =S So the break is definitly nice...

 

Cora - January 12

Kristina, I bled for about 6 weeks after wards as well, did you have a natural birth or C section? I had a c section, and believe me I agree the break is nice, but I am kind of looking forward to getting mine, so I can start my birth control pills...lol. I dont want to get pregnant again right away

hi! my baby is now 2 1/2 months old, and i had my first period dec.7th, and i am now a week late based on my normal 28 day cycle. i've had slight spotting and feeling like its gonna start any second, but nothing. i will be doing a preg. test sunday if i dont get it by then just to make sure. do you have any symptoms?

 

Cora - January 12

I have absolutely no symptoms at all, I was starting to worry that I was pregnant again already...yikes !

 

angela - January 12

hi, cora. i thought the break would be nice too, but when i got my first af i just a__sumed i would always get my af every month, and now...... its weird not having one... unless im preg. im even trying to wean my baby so i can just have a normal af. the cramps and the spotting is just too much for me.

 

HELLO - January 12

WHY ARE WOMEN WRITING IN ABOUT THEIR LATE PERIODS. THIS IS A BABY CARE FORUM.

 

Kristina - January 12

hello, why are you writing at all? Like you said, this is a baby care forum...how often do you talk about your baby?

 

Cora - January 12

To HELLO , I do believe this entire section is in regards to life after having your baby. A place for everyone to discuss all things that may be happening after a baby is born and any concerns. I think this topic may fit into that category, dont you think? Now if you dont have anything constructive to say in regards to the situation, stop wasting our time and move on.

I think hello just doesn't understand the concept of "friends" and how they share things with each other.
