Is it a Fake Out?

Life can be cruel sometimes...and I'm wondering if God is Faking me out.....

My period was supposed to start yesterday- since the beginning of my period as a 12 year old- my period has ALWAYS been normal and regular (with the exception of Pre-Diabetes diagnosis).

Every 26 days...my period is like clock work....however....yesterday...it did NOT come at all. Part of me wanted to be excited...so I took a test...a big fat NEGATIVE. Disappointment....disappointment...disappointment....

Last night I went to bed with cramps- woke up with cramps in the middle of the night...not feeling so great. This morning...I felt fine...but I still have no signs of normal period..nor have I had any cramps today....

This is such a mean trick if my period is going to come...what would you do...take another test??? Wait it out a few days??

Part of me is nervous to take another test for fear of another BIG FAT NEGATIVE!

Maybe I'll get what I wanted for my birthday after all....maybe???


  1. I would wait a day or two and then take another test. It is possible that you are infact pregnant but your body is just being slow at showing you (hormone wise) OR that you are not and then you'll get your dreaded period. I know, not so helpful, but it's the truth and this does happen to a lot of women.
    Easier said than done, but give it a day or two and try again. Worst case, you wasted a test and we diabetics know that wasting a test is just par for the course (aka, not enough blood on the strip=failed/wasted test strip)

    All the best.

  2. Ah, that wait is SO horrible. In my case, I was six days late before I got my positive test (also pretty regular before that). By then I was so used to the negatives, that I was shocked when I saw "pregnant" on my digital test. I tested every other day, bc everyday was to much for me. GOOD LUCK. Every one of my appendages is crossed for you!! :)

  3. Wow, that IS cruel! I don't think I'd have the willpower to keep from testing much longer but I think you should do whatever keeps you sane! For me, that would be to test. . . maybe every other day or so?

    Either way, I'm wishing you a big, fat positive! Good luck and I'm sending baby dust your way!!

  4. Just wanted to say I've been thinking about you. Whether you got the news you wanted or not, hope you're hanging in there!
