    can i ask some questions?
    i have diagnosed PCOS, so even though im used to irregular periods, iv not had a period now in about 5 months.
    in that time iv taken 2 tests just incase, but both have come back negative.

    however recently iv been getting cramps, but they havnt felt like PCOS cramps.

    another worrying thing i have when i breath i can see my stomach sort of pulsating like my heart or something, but it looks VERY strong.

    would it be worth taking another test? me and my partner last had an incident about the 17th August, i took a test about 3 weeks later, but it was negative, now iv still not had a period im becoming very worried.
    With a negative test three weeks later the chances are low. You could take another test to be sure if it would help. Either way I would go to your GP for a chat as it is worrying you and might be worth them having a look

    i spoke to my GP about it and she said shes going to ask the others how long not having a period is ok before looking into it, and i think kshe was going to to back to the endocrinologist aswell.

    Hey guys

    How are you all doing? We're finally starting to see some recovery in the breasts, though I'm still on lots of painkillers for every feeding. Seb is six weeks old and doing great, and last night we tried getting him to sleep in his cot for the first time ever and there were no tears! The white noise app really helped.

    We are doing well. Isaac has started sitting and is desperately trying to roll over (he hates being on his front so I am not sure why!!)

    Haha, that's great!

    I got a photo of Sébastien doing tummy time the other day, he quite likes it and has really strong muscles for a six week old I think!

    He is good! Isaac can lift his head... He just point blank refuses and faceplants after about 2 mins and cries until you flip him over!

    You can get a positive test as early as 8 or 9 days post ovulation. However if possible it is best to wait until the day your period is due.

    I always got told 3 weeks after you had unprotected sex. Though if your trying for a baby prehaps when your period should be due?
    Your first urine of the morning is the best as it has the most of the hormone in

    Do you know roughly where you are in your cycle.

    These things can take time sometimes it took us a few months. Personally I found monitoring my basal body temp and doing clear blue ovulation tests helpful. But it very much depends on the sort of person you are whether you want to go down that route as it can be a bit stressful.

    My period is due today apparently but only got spotting and a bit more after sex. I've been spotting for 3 days and it's just mostly brown stuff. (Sorry TMI)


    I've gone down that route this cycle. My bbt is so unpredictable though. I don't have any ovulation kit yet as they are a bit pricey.

    Are you monitoring with an app? I found fertility friend helpful. The clear blue tests are expensive. You can get ones with lines rather than digital things from ebay. They are more tricky to use but much more affordable.

    I am sorry that things don't seem to have gone your way this month. If you haven't properly started bleeding in a few days it might be worth taking another test as some people get a light implantation bleed.

    I'm using fertility friend and another app called my fertility. Both have the graph for bbt and it's been helpful. I was thinking of getting the ovulation test from ebay but not sure if they work as well as the clearblue one.

    Spotting has pretty much stop so still a little hopeful plus my bbt in the past few days have been ranging from 36.5 to 36.2 and I had 35.9 last month during period (as a side note do you know what is the 'normal' bbt if pregnant?)

    My understanding is that the significance is in the comparative rise in temperature rather than the actual numbers.

    Wow, you are so close now! What is the scan for? At 36 weeks your baby is just about done anyway! Do you have a name picked out?
