So I'm not sure if this is the right area to post this, but I did post in another section last week but only got one response so going to try here.
I had my first baby 6 months ago, and had 3 normal periods so far this year, arrived right on time, not a day late. This month, AF is a no-show. I am 5 days late and I am freaking out because we do want more kids eventually, but not just yet!
I have heard that an increase in breastfeeding can cause you to skip/miss a period as your hormones increase, so I am hoping that's all it is as over the last month my daughter has been feeding more during the day and increased feeding at night due to teething and a growth spurt.
I got cramps about a week before AF was due and all the regular symptoms; bloating, headaches, increased appetite and some nausea etc, but she never showed up! I am not on birth control but hubby and I use condoms. (never got pregnant when using condoms, got pregnant straight away without them with our first) so I don't think that I am pregnant, but I am worried as I've been feeling crampy, emotional, headaches, tired, a lot of thick discharge, some constipation etc. The only symptoms I got with my first was tiredness, and I don't feel as tired as I did when I was pregnant with her.
I have done 2 Clear Blue HPTs and both have been negative (one test when I was 1 day late and second test when I was 4 days late).
Has anyone else experienced this before? I keep thinking AF is about to arrive, and then nothing
