View Full Version : Late & like clockwork
03-23-2012, 06:53 PM
So my husband and I are TTC. We started trying Feb 28 (right after my last cycle) then again on March 17th and 18th. I'm like clockwork. Always on the 20th & though the time doesn't make sense....I'm officially late. I took a test the day after I missed my period but negative :(. Hubby is convinced I'm expecting as I started with signs I was going to start on the 20th but never did. I've had a constant pressure in my abdomen and lower back, swollen & tender breasts, headaches & tired all the time. No frequent urination, no bleeding, no constipation. I am planning on taking another test on the 1st so I give the whole 14 days after conception a try & if I don't start by then, you can bet your bottom dollar I am bc like I said, im like clockwork. Anyone go through the same thing & have a story to tell? Seems to good to be true to get pregnant my first month trying. Any comments, recommendations, good stories are welcome! Thanks :winks:

I'm a little confused, i'm thinking if you tried around the 17th & 18th then it would be to soon to tell if you are pregnant. i agree to wait until the 1st to retest. sometimes the stress of trying or if the excitement of this might be it can throw a cycle off, i know this because we've tried for 4 yrs and i seen it on this site many time. i hope this is it for you and that your ttc journey is a short one. good luck

I'm confused as well. Are you doing any OPKs or temps to see when you ovulated? Because most people don't ovulate just before AF, it's normally about 2 weeks after your cycle begins--and you said you tried right after AF and then just before it was due? If you're TTC, I would maybe recommend visiting the TTC forum, you'll learn a lot of valuable information there.

Definitely come to the TTC room! Also, can I recommend signing up for Fertility Friend? It's free for the basic membership and can really help track your cycles, plus there's a tutorial course you can take that's also free. I learned a lot about charting and about my body by taking the course, and reading through the FAQ section as well. :luck:!!!!
