Take them out to dinner, give the waiter a baby bottle that says "best used by EDD" in big writing and have them bring it to your table with the drinks.

My period has never been so late in my life. It was due by Tuesday 10/30. And it is STILL not here.
How long without a period do I wait until I go see an OB or family doc?



I last tested Saturday so 5 days late with FMU. I had also tested Tuesday and Thursday last week I believe. I plan on getting more tests but damn this sucks. I thought maybe a couple days late but not this many.



Post and run though, be back tomorrow.

The cycle I got pregnant with DD was a 46 day cycle. I went a whole month without ovulating.



That call is up to you though. I'd ring your doctor and ask what they think you should do. (Hope you get a positive either way!)

So I had EWCM mixed with creamy CM earlier... I guess I will be Ov within the next day or two... I'm not charting at all anymore, so I'm only guessing.... Def no BDing going on here though... :? DH has been in a ROTTEN mood, almost like he's PMSing. Ugh... Whatever...

When I was pregnant with DS I didn't test until I was almost 6 weeks along but I had the sore boobs and slight nausea for about a week before that. I just want to know!!!!!! :shock:

I didn't have ANY symptoms!!! I tested at 4 weeks and 6 weeks, and got nothing, finally I had a super vivid dream that I got a BFP... Got up, POAS and sure enough! :D lol

Ugh this time change is driving me up a wall. 5 more days til I can start testing. I swear I've been an emotional wreck lately. I've almost cried 3x in the past two days:oops::cry:

I did get some EWCM the other day along with pains on my lower left side, so I figured that meant AF was coming. But still nothing. So I am hoping that maybe I just O'd late. It is frustrating. I will wait a couple weeks before I call the doctor.
