You are definitely past due for AF - I am 10 days late and my LMP was Feb 16th. You don't have to have prego signs - some people don't. I thikn you could take a test now and if it's negative, wait another week and take another one. Good luck to you!

Well....I'd say tomorrow's first morning urine on a First Response Early pg test stick would probably let you know. Even if you went back to 34 day cycles, you'd still be 3 days late. If nothing shows up on the stick if you test tomorrow, and af doesn't come by Sunday - I'd test again Sunday morning. First Response comes in two and four (special) packs right now. I'd check out one of those. I DOES sound like you MIGHT be pregnant. I'd test if I were you - by now, I'd have gone out of my mind. But that's just me.....I wish I'd bought stock in First Response when I had the chance and the price was right. (darnit!) lol

I MEANT to type IT does sound likeyou might be pregnant.... not 'I does sound like'. Damn! I hate it when I do that! Bugs me! (as a disclaimer - I'd like to state that it doesn't bug me in the LEAST when someone else does it - just when I myself, do it)

We're rooting for you, jj. One of the early signs is indeed a runny nose, as progesterone affects the mucous membranes. It isn't often commented on, perhaps because it such a normal occurrence. The lower back pain counts for something, too. As you know, we do have posts from women who have scarcely any signs. Why don't you wait for a week longer than your previous longest and then test - I think that would mean this weekend. Then test at weekly intervals until the situation resolves. Good luck!

yes, I've taken a test - BFN :( but I'm still 10 days late for AF.. even a blood test said no - so I'm just waiting for my period! So I'm on day 35... after you take a hpt, if it's positive, obviously call the doctor to make an appt., but even if it's negative you could get a blood test in a week to see what's making you so late... that's what I'm trying to figure out! good luck!!

well i took a hpt test at like 3:30 this morning BFN and still no sign of af....i guess i will have to play the waiting game and see what happens....just wish i knew what was going on..

JJ, my LMP was also feb 15th and I am also late. Tested negative. Having nausea and bloated feeling, wet cm, a bit of constipation and a bit of pulling feeling in the lower adomen, body temp seem to be a bit high for the past couple of days (not sure if I am sick or what).. been having a runny nose for two days (though I may have caught a cold). No sore Boobs though. U want to wait out together? Good luck to u.

hi grace..that sounds like a good idea i could use a waiting buddy....havent really felt any systems the sore back and the cold like symptoms i have been having....and yesterday i did have a funny taste in my mouth...not sure if that is the metallic taste that everyone has been talking about or if it is from something else

 

jj - March 24

grace keep me updated with what is going on with you....best of luck

 

jj - March 24

bumpin it up

JJ, I just took a HPT this morning and it was also negative. Seem like it is still possible to be pregnant even if your HPT is negative (from some of the post I read, some pregnancy didn't even show up on blood test even after two months). Still waiting for AF. My AF have been pretty regular for the past 1 year (it usually come on that day or earlier). I am not sure if it is because I am a bit stressed from work or suspecting that I might be pregnant that cause its delay. Your funny taste in the mouth might be the metallic taste everyone is talking about. Good luck to u. Keep me posted ok.
