First Round Neg

It is cycle day CD 24 and what is unusual about it is that I've had no spotting.  Usually I start spotting by now. 

I took a hpt and it was negative.  I was hoping it would be negative.  I guess that is a first for me.  I really want to do the donor eggs and I don't want another miscarriage mucking things up.

I know it has to be nerves.  I'm excited.  I want to get things going so of course this is when my period will not arrive on time.  I'm due by Wednesday.  If I don't get it by Wednesday morning I'll call to get a beta done and beg them for  provera if need be.  I could always use the herbs I have here on hand.  They should kick in within three days and get my cycle going.  I might just do that anyways.   Plus I didn't have sex during my fertile period to procreate if you know what I mean.  I know I'm not pregnant.

Symptoms of pending period within a week are:
  • lower back pain
  • mild cramping in the uterus
  • oily face
  • acne
  • cravings for salty and sweet
So all the normal things I'd get just no spotting.

I'll be making my Lovage Root  in a tea later today.  Should work on my stomach issues and migraines too which is a bonus.  If pregnant, PLEASE don't use just telling you now. 


  1. Isn't that always the way? AF is always running late when you want it on time :( I hope AF makes an appearance soon!

    1. I hope so too. I don't want to think negative about this next new cycle. I want only to think happy positive thoughts. Two high grade embryos are promised and I'm putting two back with the hopes that at least one sticks.

    2. I've got nothing but positive thoughts. Everything I've read points to donor egg cycles having really good success rates! Knocking on wood, of course. :)

  2. I can understand the anticipation and excitement. Hope you get your period soon and can get on the meds for your DE cycle.

    1. Thank you. Hoping that your Cesarean goes well.

  3. I can understand being excited about donor eggs too. And it figures that this is when AF would take it's time! I hope things get moving along soon.

  4. Hopefully the flo shows up! Excited for you.
