Preparing for October!

Beginning to think that September is now a complete write off, BFN yesterday and im now a week late for AF with no AF signs on the horizon, I am thinking that maybe I never ovulated at all!! which would really throw the cat amongst the pigeons to know that my insides are not working as they should be 😦

So to distract myself ive been planning October and done a little shopping.


I used to do the temp charting but stopped about 10months ago because I was just finding it all too much and wanted to relax a little more, that hasnt worked lol so I will start again.

I have never used OPK tests so I am giving them ago especially after thinking what if I didnt ovulate this month, so I want to pin point the exact moment for October!

And I have also thrown some early detection pregnancy tests in the basket!….WHY have I never come across these babies before???? has anyone ever used them? do they work? I hope so!

And I have topped up my multivitamins as I ran out yesterday.

That should all keep me going for a while 🙂

Is there anything that you recommend?

Negative :(

I tested this morning with a tesco own brand and like the title says “negative” 😦
Just confused and frustrated now because there is no sign that AF is coming so what on earth is going on down there!

I just drove my OH to the airport because he is going away with work until Friday, so I’m home alone for a whole week….its going to be a long week I reckon.

Sorry I couldn’t bring you all happier news after the fuss over yesterdays test.
Hope you all have a wonderful saturday, Love

Testing tomorrow!

There is only one thing occupying my mind today and that is thinking of tomorrow morning.
Last night I was sure my period was on the way after going to the bathroom and having pink cm, so that really got me down last night and then my other half came in the door from work all excited that he had a phone call from his best mate saying his wife is pregnant…..I felt awful but I just couldn’t be that excited for them 😦 instead I nipped upstairs and had a little sob.
I was sure that I would wake up to af this morning, but still nothing and no more spotting!!

So here is where I am at –
I ovulated on the 7/8th Sept
I am now about 19dpo

AF was due 21st Sept

I am currently 6 days late!

I have been super good this month and not tested early at all. I have been guilty of some months starting to test from 5dpo!!! So I thought I would stick it out this month and wait to see if af arrives. So many times have a tested then started my period an hour later and felt like a complete dope! So that is why I haven’t tested yet.

How I am feeling: very mixed emotions here is a few explanations I have going through my head:
A) – Maybe I didn’t ovulate at all so there is no need for a period.
B) – Maybe I’m just late!
C) – Maybe me being so poorly last week with that bad cold has delayed my period.
D) – I could actually be blessed!

Who knows!

I may aswell pop some symptoms I’ve been feeling, if they are symptoms.
I have been feeling exhausted, I could sleep all day and I’m always yawning. I feel bloated and keep getting cramping and lots of cm and ofcourse the pink spotting which keeps appearing.
The strangest thing is my boobs are not sore, they are always sore about 5days before my period starts but they seem fine, is it possible to get a bfp without sore boobs? All the stories I have read the first thing people talk about is how sore their boobs are!

Anyway I’m only on a lunch break and wasn’t planning on writing such an outburst haha
Any comments would be very much appreciated, I’m feeling kind of on my own today.
Blog love
Ps-cross your fingers for me for tomorrow is testing day! Aargh!

No news is good news!

Good morning, I am on a tea break at work, sat in the staff area all on my own so thought I would give a quick update.
Still no arrival of AF, but having lots of cramps and CM.
I will be testing on Friday if still nothing appears. Its months like this I wish I still used opks and temping but a few months ago I decided to give all that a break.
I do not want to get my hopes up but I have everything crossed and just want this week to disappear!
