DJA and Kara--well up until my last cycle they were never longer than 33 days! *sigh* I am going to hold out until the beginning of the week to test again. If another negative and still no AF then I will probably make an appt with the doc! Kara, yes I am sure I have been temping and charting CM I think the witch is just messing with me...she's got a sick sense of humor that one! lol

tina,
Do you normally have irregullar cycles? Also, you can still get a BFN on 18 DPO depending on the test you use and how your HCG levels are growing. So, do you know for sure you are 20 dpo right now? Are you going to test again? Try First response, they detect 40 mIU of hcg, one of the lowest levels out there (some go down to 25) and even if the line is super faint, it could be a positive. Keep us posted!

Tina - how long are your cycles normally? What is a BFN? Big fat negative? I hope you get on track soon. I have generally had 28-day cycles, so it has helped me to know that once I was "out of luck" for a particular cycle, it was only about 12 days before the next shot.

I think I am going to go nuts soon!! lol I am cd36 and 20dpo I got a BFN at 18dpo, but still no af...not even any spotting!! I don't think it's my month, but I sure do wish af would get here if it isn't, so I can move on to the next cycle!! lol
