We're TTCing DC2 and it's taking a while. DH was away the weekend of my most fertile time but we DTD loads the day before he went so there would have been sperm alive and kicking over the next couple of days.

AF is two days late and I had cramps the week beginning of when it was due, and had back ache and cramps this morning. I've caved and done a few OV strip tests and while not conclusively positive, they're getting darker. I almost daren't get a HPT though because I did some a few days ago and they were negative.

I daren't let myself hope, I keep feeling something coming and going to check...but obviously I am hoping because I posting this! Oh this is a special kind of torture.

Just do a test, you will just torture yourself not knowing xx

Two BFNs. I guess it's just a longer than usual cycle sad

MrsCouchman Mon 02-Jun-14 12:37:39

You could have ovulated late so it's just too early to tell. Good luck x

I see a line!!

Hurrah! Fingers crossed the next one is darker too wink

It's incredibly faint - can't pick it up on a camera but DH has confirmed it. I don't think you'll see it but if you look verrrrrry carefully...

WipsGlitter Mon 02-Jun-14 13:21:29

I think I see it!

hanflan Mon 02-Jun-14 14:19:43

No line this morning sad Different brand. No period, feeling sick and sweating. This is difficult.

MrsCouchman Tue 03-Jun-14 08:41:06

Did the line come up straight away yesterday? Could be an evap line sad I found tescos own tests very good also superdrug are meant to be good xx fingers crossed for you xx

ZebraZeebra Tue 03-Jun-14 08:48:41

Yeah, the line came up yesterday straight away. That one was a Superdrug one. The one I got the BFN on this morning was Sainsburys - though I did another and got a very faint line - very faint but there nonetheless. Crossing everything. I think I just have to wait it out.

I had a really faint line like that with DS2 [he is now 3!]

I think I tested on the day my period was due or pretty close to it. A Boots test I think it was.

Wait a few days and test again... but I think you might be pregnant.

Congratulations!

Use a first response, it will give you a definite result. If your AF is late and you are pregnant there will be no mistaking the result, IMO.

hanflan Tue 03-Jun-14 11:56:52

Superdrug are very sensitive and that is only a faint line, which might explain why other (less sensitive) brands aren't picking it up yet! Test tomorrow with another superdrug one or a FRER and you should get a decent line! smile

woodwaj Tue 03-Jun-14 12:27:12

Im sure I recently saw a thread complaining about sainsburys tests! Try a frer!

ZebraZeebra Tue 03-Jun-14 14:11:46

Thanks everyone - it's all so helpful. I've been feeling very, very nauseous so I'm hoping and crossing everything.

ItStillLooksLikeRainDear Tue 03-Jun-14 22:55:53

Still keeping them crossed for you.

MrsCouchman Wed 04-Jun-14 14:13:31

Did u do another today?.

Cardinal Wed 04-Jun-14 14:17:51

Fingers crossed Zebra!

ZebraZeebra Wed 04-Jun-14 16:12:01

More BFNs today but still no period. So to conclude - one BFN on Monday, BFNs since, AF four days late. I'm thinking - from most to least likely - chemical pregnancy / somehow I am extremely rare and just not getting a bfp when i am pregnant sad

It's just not looking good. The very faint BFP, then the subsequent BFNs.
