Hello to whoever is out there reading this. I hope that I have posted it in the proper category. Here is my question/issue/concern:
I am TTC. I have been very regular since I began menstruating again after having my son. I am typically 26-28 days apart. We have been trying for a short time, so I have not been tracking ovulation. The date of my last menstrual cycle was October 21, 2012. We had intercourse when a normal person would ovulate, several times around November 3rd and 5th. But then, I did not have cervical mucous until the 11th and I swear I feel like this is when I actually ovulated, so again we had intercourse. Now I am 9 days late for my period. But I am not passing pregnancy tests. I called the doctor and they are having me come in for blood tests on Monday to see if I am pregnant but not producing the proper hormones to have a successful pregnancy. However, after reading and searching on the internet I have ran into several threads and websites of people asking this same question and many have responded that late ovulation can cause you to not pass a pregnancy test until 14-16 days after implantation. If I got pregnant on November 11th, then 14 days would be today, the 24th. Can this be true? Has anyone ever had this happen or heard of this happening? My worry is that I will go in on Monday and have this test and because I still won't have a huge amount of hCG in my blood they will think it isn't a viable pregnancy.
A little back story from my first pregnancy. I had a 42 day menstrual cycle, tried for two years and gave up. While we were on a vacation to the U.K. I found out I was pregnant. Thinking back, I got my pregnancy symptoms about 5 and 1/2 to 6 weeks after my missed period. Perhaps I ovulated late then too? Perhaps if I were testing this same thing would have happened? I don't know. But now I wonder.
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
