So I have been ttc for 8 years and never been pregnant. My cycle is like clockwork and the latest I have ever been is only around 4 days max and that has only been a couple of times in my life. I am currently 12 days late and no signs indicating it going to start anytime soon. Ive done two tests (one done yesterday morning) and not even the faintest line 😔 I have to wait until the 18th before I can get some bloodwork done. I have been using donor eggs because I have DOR and suspected endometriosis. Just curious if anyone has ever gone this long getting a negative hpt and actually been pregnant? Any ideas as to why I could be late this long?

Aw Carter what a roller coaster. Wouldnt it be amazing if this was a miracle?!
But it is possible you ovulated late? Maybe after the last FET your body is taking lots of time to regulate and ovulated later than usual or maybe not at all?
Or maybe you did ovulate late and thats why its too early to see the positive line?
Im sorry you have to wait so long for blood work to find out.

Thanks Daisy. I would have expected something like this the first cycle after my last FET but this will be my second one. I will pick up more tests but I hate to waste the money and get my hopes up - even if it's only a little bit.

Ah yeah that is weird it is the second cycle post FET. Gah bodies are so frustrating. I will keep fingers crossed for you but hopefully you can get a definitive answer soon.

Thanks ladies...still no sign of my period and unfortunately I can't get in for blood work until next week! Just want some answers now but I am glad its happening when we are waiting anyway. I would be so much more anxious if it was during the start of a FET cycle.

Carter - thinking to you too. I have been a silent follower on the forum since last year and follow your story. I was 'with you' as you travelled to Ottawa end of last year. I even have notes on you on a post it. And on Daisy too!

I dont really have experience with late periods (mine stopped) but hoping everything stabilises for you.

Thanks everyone...blood work showed that I am not pregnant - no shocker there. My estrogen and LH levels are high so they just think I will start a period over the next little while and don't seem to be too concerned with me missing a cycle dontknow.gif  I have to wait for a follow up appointment Feb 10th before I speak to my doctor so we will see then. 

 

Jewels - I was a silent follower for a loooong time too before I ever posted! Thanks so much for sending along your good thoughts!

Carter I'm sorry that it ended up being nothing. My period has been really wonky too but my last two periods have been good and my latest one was my pre-pregnancy normal.
