Spotting and late, but BFN

Ladies, is anyone as lost as I feel right now? I have been spotting for 6 days and my period is 2 days late, but I'm still getting negatives. I know some women don't test positive until a couple of weeks after a missed period, but with my first baby it turned positive within seconds and I was two days late when I took it. Any thoughts?

    QFP.
    You're regular until you're not.  doesn't look like you're pregnant at this time.

  • Are you charting?  If it's negative you aren't pregnant.

  • I am honestly surprised at the lack of compassion you ladies are having towards me. Most of you are talking to me like I'm an idiot. This board is about trying to get pregnant. We are all on the same boat of being a ball of nerves and waiting for it to happen. You'd think you would be SOMEWHAT supportive in your responses.

    I wasn't feeling like you are an idiot.  Are you charting? We need more information other than AF is late.....

  • I'm not charting BBT, but I've been charting when I ovulate and I take the tests as well and I ovulated when I was predicting I would which is why my period is two days off schedule.

    That's more information.  The human body is not always predictable and AF can be late.  You could be having a longer LP than normal.  I would start charting BBT because you would learn so much about your cycles and your body.

  • I'm not new here. I've been on The Bump for two years since I started trying for my first baby and now that we're going for the second I thought I would come back. Everyone was so supportive then and would cheer you on to make you feel better when your damn period came so you didn't give up hope. I didn't think I would get the opposite this time.

    To the more helpful responses about charting and such, thank you! I appreciate it. 
  • I always spot before my period. Good luck next cycle!

  • Unfortunately our bodies do super weird things and like to mess with us. Like PPs have said, a positive or negative OPK doesn't mean a whole lot unless you can tie it to other ov symptoms and BBT. 

    I'll agree that the culture around here has changed since I was here last time but it's still supportive :) feel free to stick around and join in the daily threads to get to know the ladies. They'll support you like crazy! 

    Sorry you felt less than supported!
