So I really have no one to discuss this with, yet so I joined a forum and am gonna spill it out here.
My deal is that I do not test for my ovulation. I felt it would add too much stress of trying to make sure the DH and I were having sex on the right days, that I just wanted to start winging it. I have a general idea of when I ovulate, but I could be wrong.
Anyway, in the past I've been very irregular, but since Sept 2011, so about 7 mo, I've actually been fairly regular at 30-31 day cycles. Never more or less. I am currently on day 37 w/ no period yet! So I don't know whether I consider myself late, or if something changed in my body to cause my cycle to be off this month. As stated, since I don't know when I ovulated, I don't know if I'm technically late or not.
Constipated - I've been having slight constipation on and off. Not badly, and not to sound gross, but basically, I know I have to go. I know it's in there. But I don't have the urge to go. If I try to force it when I don't have the urge, then nothing really comes out. Eventually I'll get the urge and I'll go, but then eventually I get that same constipation again later on that day or the following day, and it's been happening for a few days now.
Fatigue - I've been feeling a little more tired lately. At some points, I'm not getting as much sleep as I'd like because my mind is racing w/ thoughts of pregnancy and its keeping me up, but even in past situations where I've gotten little sleep, I haven't been as exhausted as I have been lately.
Cramps - today was the first day I felt anything. In the morning for a 5-10 min period, I felt very slight cramps. Very much like menstrual cramps, but only lasting those few minutes, and not as strong or as painful as menstrual cramps. They went away, and haven't returned.
My concern is I haven't had any other symptoms besides these. And it's possible that all this could just be PMS, but going on my late period, I am really feeling now more than ever before this could finally be it.
I don't want to take an HPT yet. I am trying to wait just a few more days, because I hate the depression I get when I get a negative. And when I test earlier on, I always get that little glimmer of home that maybe it's too early, and it's a false negative. Then I get my period, and that makes it so much worse. So I figure, the later I wait to test, if it is negative, I can accept it and move on and just try again next mo. And if I really am pregnant, then I should definitely get the positive..
So I am waiting another 2 or 3 days before I test, if I don't get my period first. This waiting though is a killer! I need lots of luck and baby dust!
