So I'm on cd 31 just I'm having all the signs of af getting ready to start but still hasn't. I figured I should have started like 3 days ago but still nothing. I don't think I'm pregnant. I'm just curious as to when my af is going to start. AAHH its driving me nuts. Wish she would just come already so I wouldn't feel like this anymore.lol

If you are not temping, you have no idea when AF is coming. Temping will show you whether there are temperature elevations (post ovulation) and if there is a drop of to that...which signals impending AF...My temps are at about 98.1 during the luteal phase before usually droping to 97.9 right when AF comes. Hope that helps...

If you know you are not preggers, and really think AF is just "teasing" you, there is this old remedy that I use to facilitate AF, heat up parsley in water and bring to a boil (parsley is filled with all the vitamins and minerals you need), once you do that drink the water (it will be green) and do it a few time throughout the day. You may even eat the cooked parsley too (gross, but I do it cuz it is healthy)...the result, I usually get AF within 12-24 hours later...OR drink a gla__s of Red wine, for some reason, people in Europe do it all the time and it triggers AF, I don't know what is in it though that causes the trigger, if it in fact does that.

Well another day gone by and still nothing I don't want to test unless I'm like at cd40 so just got to keep the wait going. lol. But I still haven't tried that remedy hoping she'll just come on her own. But I decided if shes not here by tomorrow I will try the remedy.

Oh yeah I temped this morning and my temp was 97.9 if that helps any.

I agree with Lin, if you really want to know if you are pregnant or not just take a test.

i sympathize. I just turned 31 April 19 and I am 10-14 days late and haven't tested because i don't thnk i am, but maybe, who knows? GL, and I hope the test turns out the way you want

Ok so i think af if right around the corner with all the cramping i'm having so maybe i am just having a really long cycle like i though.

 

Lin - May 8

You haven't taken a test yet?! You're a patient woman!

I know I'm not to concernd about taking a test yet I figure I still have a while longer before I'd really have to test. Besides I don't really want to spend money I don't have I feel that my af is comming. Ya know what I mean.

 

Lin - May 8

I know what you mean. A test should be accurate by now, but if you're short on cash, then I guess it's a good idea to save your money (unless, of course, you just buy a Dollar Tree test). Keep in mind, however, that many women feel like af is about to start when they find out they're pregnant. I do think that your temp seems a bit low. Mine is normally 98.6 in the luteal phase with a coverline around 98.0, and it drops to around 98.1 or 98.2 before af, with another drop afterward to 97.8. Of course, all that said, if your follicular phase temps are low with a coverline of 97.5 or 97.6, then 97.9 could be a high temp. At any rate, you have the patience of a saint!
