I have been enjoying 28 day cycles since my cycle started again after Megan was born. It may be 27-29, but pretty much 28 days. I just realized today is cd 31. I don't think I am pg, but what happened to my 28 day cycle? I thought it was going to make it so much easier when we do start ttc. But now I am confused! Grrrrrrrrrr... I guess I am just having a little vent. [:I] Thanks for listening.

I have always had pretty irregular cycles (30-35 days), it makes things extra confusing!!! Maybe you could be pregnant though [:D]!!!!

Best of luck with TTC when you do!!!

Amanda,

So frustrating when things change up a bit.[}:)] You just come here and vent away.

Are you sure you're not pg though? I'm impressed with your restraint - by the time I'm one second late, I've already been through five tests...[:I]

Hey Amanda,
Don't fret just yet. I think that just because you aren't every 28 days, that doesn't mean that you will have trouble when you are ready to TTC. My cycles were anywhere from 29-34 days, and it was NOOOO problem for me to get pregnant. You'll just have to continue to BD every other day for a little longer period of time due to a later ovulation. So don't stress! And who knows, maybe you already are preggars....

Amanda,
I'm with Julie, I would have taken at least one, if not two PG tests by now. Hopefully, you really are PG and not just late, that would be great!

Well, have you done a pg test yet Amanda? I'm with the other ladies and do one just in case.[;)] Are you charting, using OPK, or anything? I've been doing the OPK since last month, and last month I was right on datewise, but this month is a different story.[:D]

Good luck to you!! Hopefully we can be pg-buddies!

So, how much longer should I keep you in suspense? Just kidding! I did a pg test this morning....it was negative. Now I just have to wonder about this long cycle. I have been under quite a bit of stress lately. There have been sooooo many things going on in my family, dh's family, and at church. I am really stressed out these days, so that is probably what is throwing everything off. I actually just got back from a funeral, which is why I have not posted today. [:(] I guess now I will just wait and see when the good ole visitor shows up. It is ladies night out tonight, so that should be a great break from everything. Thanks for all your support and concern.

Hope you had a great time out, sorry to hear about the stress. Hope things settle down for you and your cycles are more normal. Take Care.
