6days late, too nervous to test :(


Hello ladies,

So this is my situation, hope its not too long,

My husband and have been actively trying to conceive for 7 months now, my cycle usually ranges from 31-33 days.

This month i made sure we baby danced every 3 days (and sometimes earlier) when the occassion presented itself to make sure i am always full with sperm (TMI)

however, about 2-4 days before my period was due to come i has very light pink discharge which lasted about 2 days. I kept wiping and it was pink, i just thought my period was due to come, then on the 3rd day, the cm had completely dried out, i has like ZERO cm, i was dry to the bone for a day or two....so i was definately expecting a period...then on the day my period was due to start i had intense period like cramps, i lay in bed put on a pad and waited for her to come, i was so sad i even shed a few silent tears i was really expecting her to come, the cramps felt exactly like how ild feel when my period was coming....i waited all day and still nothing...its been 6 days now....and nothing.....i dont know what to think.....i have gotten a clear blue test, but i am really nervous to test....

Well I had 6 days late too, but no period signs at all... just had my chest hurting so much... so had to put back my bra :( . I decided to buy to pregnancy test and did it to be fixed.

My advice would be : don't focus (as when I did for my second child it took us 9 months trying... so I give up the idea and pouf magic happened) I know it's easy to say but I completely understand your situation as I had the same 7 years ago....

Take it easy, do the test and stay positive... and don't focus as it gives you a pressure so doesnt help.

When I was 6 days late I was petrified to take a test as last year I went through a twin missed miscarriage so I didn’t want to be gutted.

Turned out I was pregnant and now I’m 21 weeks my lovely 😊 I wish you the best of luck xx

I don't want to get your hopes up, but the pinkish discharge around the time your period was due happened to me. I assumed it was my period but that it was really light (I had a couple of days of this plus some spotting and my periods usually start like this). I marked it down as a period in my Natural Cycles app (which we were actually using for contraception). A few weeks after that I noticed my boobs were still really sore (again a normal symptom of my period) so I took a test and boom I was pregnant. We'd had sex on a couple of "red days" (the app advises to use protection on these days) but hadn't used protection because my cycle length is 40 odd days and I wasn't due to ovulate for another 10 days. Turns out that one month my cycle must've finally shortened into a "normal" length and I ovulated 10 days early! We were still thrilled because kids were always on the agenda, we'd just never found the "right time" to start trying.

thank you ruthjmusic... last night i got home and wen i went to pee i wiped off some blood...but only when i wiped...was expecting to see period but nothing...up til now...been gettng sharpish like cramps in my abdomen mainly left side...so wanna wait a few more days to test...dont want to waste a clear blue 🙆🏽‍♀️

Totally understand. When I asked the doctor about why I'd had a sort of period he said that it's quite normal to have an implantation bleed when the fertilized egg reaches your uterus, and the timing of that is usually 12-14 days after ovulation, ie exactly around the time you'd get your period! He said quite a lot of women don't realise they're pregnant at this stage because of it!
