Ya know how when you're in the trenches of IF and in that TWW and you post about AF not coming and as soon as you hit publish she makes her arrival?  Yea, I was thinking that would be what happened to me as soon as I posted about being late.  But nothing.  Nada.  Zip.  Zero. 

I POAS on Sunday and 2 on Monday...all negative.  I haven't since.  It's weird.  I'm having mixed emotions about the SLIGHT possibility I could still be pg.  Given all the strife DH and I have been through over the last few years I'm hesitant to be happy.  But at the same time, I'd be THRILLED if I was.  Key word being IF. 

Since Lexi was born, I've been very regular.  Most cycles falling at 28 days...just a few going to 32 days.  But I'm at 43 days.  I couldn't tell you if I've had any of my normal pre-AF symptoms...because I was so busy getting ready for WDW.  Then there is the trip itself.  I know crossing time zones can mess things up...but I only crossed one (CST to EST) and we pretty much kept our CST schedules of waking and sleeping. 

My next thought is to call my GYN and get a blood test.  But then, if it comes back positive, he isn't the doctor I'd want to see during a pregnancy.  The Dr I'd want to see doesn't take my current insurance, but does take the insurance my company is switching to for 2014.  The Dr I'd want to see is the Dr who actually delivered Lexi, he was in the same practice as my current GYN and left for another soon after she was born.

I'm all over the place.  Maybe once I hit publish AF will arrive...

After my trip to Texas, which was also the cycle after my miscarriage I didn't ovulate and needed Provera to get started. It's possible that with the stress--even though you didn't see it as stress getting ready for your trip that you're annovulatory and simply skipped a cycle. OR as I stated before that you ovulated much later than anticipated. Go get the blood work done--if it's + you'd have at most 2-3 appts w/the doc you don't want to see. If it's - you get some peace.

Well? Do we have to read it in the National Enquirer?

Keeping my fingers crossed for you and hoping that AF still hasn't arrived!
