Pregnancy Or Wishful Thinking

Trinityjae - May 9

I need some support before I go insane. I went to my Obgyn for a routine check up last week. I told her that I was 12 days late. She didn't bother to test me. Now I am 18 days late with NO signs of AF other than very light cramping. No spotting or bleeding. I took a test monday morning and it was negative. I also usually have an unusually strong stomach however twice today, my mouth filled with saliva and I nearly vomitted. I am due for my next AF in 12 days. I'm not sure what to do next. Do I wait and see if I miss my next AF? Do you think it's possible that I could be one of those people who don't produce enough of the HGC hormone? This has never happened to me before. I'm growing very frustrated since I've been trying to conceive for the last 8 months.

I think it's more likely that you're one of those people who ovulated late. That's not to say you're not pregnant, just that if you ovulaed yesterday, you'll have to wait a couple more weeks to find out. Every woman has an anovulatory cycle at some point in her life. Maybe this is yours. A negative when you're 12 days late is pretty rare (for someone who's pregnant, that is).

I think you need to get a new obgyn if they didnt even check you! When you go in to see docs sometimes you have to tell them what you want, tell them you want a blood test and if that is neg and u/s if you dont start! It is up to you if you want to wait 12 more days, i had never heard of an unovulatory cycle until i came on this sight but that is possible too. Has this ever happened to you before? That has never happened to me and i would really have tripped if it did seriously thinking i was pg. I think that whichever route you take, until you know for sure at least eat healthy and dont drink just in case. i believe both unovulatory cycles and not enough HCG seem more common than you would think. I think a blood test would give you more answers especially the quant_tative ones though they are more expensive to have done. Maybe see if your doc will just give you a lab slip over the phone so that you dont have to actually go back in. Good Luck!
