Thank you so much - just can't believe i have been blessed!! Hard to believe - must be positive though - asked the doc if he can please tell through the blood test how far I am - will know on Friday - just wonder if the results weren't mixed up with someone elses - especially in our country anything is possible Laughing

OH MY GOD!!! Dee...that's such a comfort to me cos my last period was the 5th May and I did a test last week as well and it was negative! Congrats! So pleased that you are and it gives me way more hope that I could be as well. Are you having any symptoms? Or is it just the very late period? How long are your cycles usually? Sorry for all the questions! Lol! xxxxx

Hey thank you!! My boyfriend and I were not expecting it. I was on the pill and went off - try and give myself breaks sometimes. I had no periods for March and April - I read that if I took a preg vit it helps so I did and 5 days later my period arrived! So I was waiting this month for my period and nothing - did the home tests and nothing - so weird - went to my gynae and he gave me the look and did an internal and said my uterus is still small so he said he wants me to go for blood tests - been having a pain in my left breast - one weekend I was nausious and had bad back ache - had the feeling that I was going to be having my period but no. So confused as to why the home tests are negative

Hi Dee,

First of all congratulations on your bfp, hope you have a h&h pregnancy Smile

Your story leaves us all with hope. My last period was the same date as yours and i got a neg test yet been having lots of symptoms etc.
Thanks for sharing that with us.

Sarah are you dancing around like me hunni? Razz How fab is that Very Happy
Should we not just go get our bloods done as opposed to waiting for our re-scheduled testing date? or both lol.
Im made up

It does sound promising and makes that light at the end of the tunnel much brighter.

I`m intrigued to know why the hpt`s are showing neg but i suppose every1`s different.

Keep us updated Dee and let us know how far gone you are when you find out friday.

I dunno what to do now, maybe a visit to the docs for a wee chat n bloods and mibby try my last hpt is on call for 2moz morning.

congrats on your BFP

just to let you all know i had false positives untill i was 8 weeks, so it does happen,

apparantly blood tests are more accurate that home test from progesterone levels apparantley (but dont quote me on that)

Wow thank you so much - it has been really strange - it would just be so nice if I could acctually look at the test and see two lines - makes it a little more real especially when you can't feel anything yet...

Blood tests are more accurate, as they measure the quantitative level of hcg so can tell you your exact level of hcg which can be detected 6-8 days after ovulation, which if over 15ml is considered pregnant. However HPT usually measure anything over 25ml (which is diluted in urine) so it can take much longer to detect. If your blood test says you are pregnant, you are definately pregnant! Congratulations!

Congrats hun! That's such fantastic news and is an inspiration to us ttc ladies!
Dee - I've been having a few shooting pains in my left boob, my nipple is a bit sore, but nothing else. Have you only felt nauseous once? It sounds like you haven't had many symptoms which prob is why the pg test doesn't pick it up - comfort to me as your pg and not having many and I'm not having many either so doesn't mean i'm not pregnant I suppose! Good luck with the pregnancy. xxxx

Miss Scotland - yeah i'm definitely dancing around now hun! It does really make me want to go and get bloods done but I'm still gonna wait a while cos I'm not having any symptoms at all and if the blood tests come back negative that's fairly conclusive! I think it's still early days with me cos of my long cycles, i've got to look at it that day 58 is the day my af is due so really I shouldn't be able to test until then and then they say a lot of women don't detect it for 2-3 weeks after af is due so I could be waiting another month to find out!! Nightmare! I haven't really thought about it until I wrote that! Lol! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you - I hope you find out soon! Hope you're okay. xxxxxxx
