Just wanting another opinion on my situation.
I am now 24 days late for my expected period (or, as expected as it can be, I suppose). I have had an irregular period before, but the last year or so has been rather stable (I wonder if that had something to do with me working in an environment with lots of women though). My last 'real' period was on the 28th of August, just after a massive move to the great white north (honestly, there are polar bears in my back yard).
I had protected sex on the 24th of September, dark brown blood/discharge from Sept 28th to the 3rd of Oct (perhaps my period?) and have had three negative HPT's (done 14, 20 and 24 days past the date of intercourse), all of which were done with the Early Response test. I also do not know if I ovulated. My temperature for the last three days (Oct. 18, 19 and 20) has been in and around 99.2 (that is mid day, but after a lack of movement).
The only symptoms I have of pregnancy are mildly sensitive nipples (but not when you touch them, psychosomatic perhaps?), more severe than usual bloating in my lower abdomen (almost like period cramps, but minus the pain), a mildly bruised feeling in the uterus area, vivid dreams and a mildly increased appetite.
Now, I know that it is possible that the move has stressed me out, not to mention I began the Insanity workout program on the 21st of September, but I also know it is quite possible to get a false negative if I have lower hormones. I just don't want to get my hopes up, I had never even considered being a mother but, well, the thought doesn't terrify me nearly as much as it used to (perhaps that is another sign? Who knows).
Anyway, any thoughts/input would be greatly appreciated!
Best wishes to all!
EDIT: I forgot to mention, I am not on any kind of birth control, nor have I ever been.
