I am 8 days late, for the first time ever. It's been 5 years since I've had a drastically irregular cycle and even then it was never 8 days late (and I suffered a serious emotional trauma at the time, which I haven't in years).
I have some symptoms which just really started in the last couple of days. Headaches, neck aches and even some tingling/cramping on my thighs, I have also been getting more and more emotional, today almost cried over something really silly. I have an aversion to some smells, mostly cleaners/disinfectants...but more prevalent are the nausea and fatigue, which I've only had now for about 24 hours but have had them both the entire 24 hours.
I did two HPT's, one at 5 days late and one at 7...7 days was first morning urine. Both were negative, but afternoon of 7th day the symptoms really hit.
I know there is a possibility that I am bringing these symptoms on because I'm 28 and really REALLY want to have a baby. But I've also read a ton about women who didn't register positive on a HPT until they were several weeks pregnant.
Anyone else dealing with this? Can symptoms really just come on that fast, i.e. the nausea/fatigue all of a sudden?
