All of the symptoms, 8 days late, negative tests. Am I going crazy?
For a few months SO and I haven't necessarily been TTC but we haven't been avoiding it either. We kind of just want it to happen when it happens, you know? But this month has been so confusing!
I'm bloated, irritable, picking fights with my SO (I don't even realize it until afterwards), not eating as much, heartburn, flatulance, metallic taste in my mouth, super tired, my breasts hurt constantly (especially near my armpits), I cannot get to sleep (been falling asleep around 1 or 2 am every night) and just generally in a funk.
But I've been testing every other day with the cheap strip tests (the really thin ones with the pink handles) and every single one has been negative. I don't think I'm particularly stressed and I'm not working out or anything, but I honestly cannot understand what my issue is. Maybe it's all just wishful thinking? I don't know. Has anyone else dealt with this?
I'm on day 40 of my cycle, late by 8 days, haven't tested yet today, last test 1 1/2 days ago.
