Still no AF...can we play analyze this?

Okay, ladies...just humor me here for a minute.  Still no AF.  Last month I had a 28 day cycle.  IUI was done on CD 13, and I got AF on CD 28, 15 dpiui. THIS cycle, I had IUI done on CD 14, and am currently on CD 29, waiting for AF. 

I took a HPT yesterday and BFN.  Although there was a VERY light line but it only appeared after the 10 min timeframe so I am not even thinking about that (yeah, right). 

 I have been crampy for the past week or so, on and off with lots of weird twinges.  And, I spotted on Thursday and Friday of last week too.  Also, very moody, PMS type moodiness.

 I guess I will find out tomorrow (if I make it that far) when I go in for my beta...fingers crossed!

Thoughts...reflections....feel free to tell me to shut up/relax/pipe down....I can take it!

  • Usually with IUI's I would think your cycle would be right on time IF you are to get one this time around.  If I were you I would continue to be hopeful!

  • Are you on progesterone?  That can delay your period.

  • No progesterone.  Just femara on CD 3-7, trigger on CD 12 (evening)  and IUI on CD 14 (morning).  I am cautiously hopeful....but also feel like AF is going to show up.  I have had too many months of disappointment to get my hopes too high....the waiting continues.  I don't even want to POAS b/c I like being in limbo better...at least there is hope in limbo right?

  • Ugh this sucks, I just wish sometimes our bodies would just tell us out right instead of having he same symptoms with AF as early PG.  Ugh I hope you get a good beta number tomorrow.

  • I'd totally be optimistic in you shoes, in fact, I'm optimistic for you in mine!

    Hang in there!

  • I think it sounds pretty good!  With my last BFP I had lots of twinges.  It really felt like I had RLP even though I hadn't even tested + yet.  Sometimes the hcg just doesn't show up until later.

    I do think you shoudl mention your spotting to your dr when you go in for your beta. 

    After more than a year, 1 IUI, 1 m/c, then acupuncture/TCM = natural cycle BFP on 12/5/11!

  • I think that sounds very very promising!  I just got my very very faint bfp this morning after the last few days I have been very very emotional, very crampy with some "pulling" sensations in the abdomen just like you are experiencing. 

    At 11 dpo I had some pink/brown mucousy spotting and I thought it may have been over but then I got to thinking that I have never spotted that early in my cycle.  Couple that with being on progesterone which should hold my period off even longer than normal I thought maybe it was implantation spotting/cramping.  I guess it was?

    So today at 12dpo I POAS and got a very very faint pink line.  It's soooo light but I am choosing to stay optimistic and positive. 

     

    I am really excited to see what your beta level is tomorrow :)

  • I've never actually had something that wasn't there appear after the 10 minute window and not lead to a BFP in a day or two, but I but the pink ones, not the blue ones.  DD was one of those--it took 15 minutes for the first line with her to appear.
