    Default AF is Late! :/

    Sorry to all, i just needed to vent.

    I'm Totally freaking out!! Af was due on the 4/10 it's now the 6th and still no show. It's always been spot on the same 30 day cycle, even down to the exact same time of day.

    I am way too nervous to test in case I get a positive result. Ds2 is only 5 months old and there is only 18 months between him and ds1 who just turned 2! I'm not ready. I was looking at contraceptives just last week. Why me? 3 under 3. Omg.

    I have been trying to think of reasons as to why af is late. Am I stressed? The kids have been sick and that has been stressful. I am currently breastfeeding but I have had 3 cycles so far.

    Just wow. How? Why? Am I over reacting. I mean I haven't even tested yet

    I tried to tell DP but he keeps saying well I have no idea how that is even possible you will get it just wait and see. We can't afford another kid. (He is currently unemployed and looking for work. ) We are 6 grand in debt and just no, no, no. He says.

    Someone give me courage to test! Please? Has anyone else been in the same situation and did af arrive? Could just anyone offer some sort of advice?

    Not really. ..sorry! Last time my AF was late was July last year. The result is laying here next to me! Sorry. ..I think you'll have to test. You might be worrying for nothing. Good luck!
    Meant to add have you been using protection?

    The not knowing would make me go crazy... I would test to put yourself out of your misery. Then you can start planning if you are pregnant...(planning always makes me feel better) Or relaxing if you aren't.

    If you aren't pregnant fast track that contraception, so you won't get in another panic...

    Good luck!

    There's a chance your cycles are still out of whack whilst bf. Mine returned at 4,6,8,11 weeks then went AWOL for ages. I had to test just to check I wasn't pregnant again. I was on the mini pill though.
    I hope for your sake you're not pregnant and that AF shows up and puts you at ease. Good luck. I'd take a test so you're not left wondering with anticipation which I think is worse.

    After baby is 3 months, you can't rely on bf alone. I've bee on mini pill since less than a month old.

    Tomorrow is a public holiday so I won't be able to buy a test. I'll have to wait till Tuesday. I hope my cycle has just gone AWOL too.

    I tried to talk with DP about it before and he just thinks I am willing myself to be pregnant and if I am, it would not be fair to bring another child into this.
    He does have a point but we might not even have to deal with this yet!

    I should have bought a test today! Gaaaah!!

    Really? Even on labour day? Definitely checking it out tomorrow. I will let you all know the big scary outcome! Eeek.

    I'm not against having another child. It would just a very challenging thing to go through with our current circumstances at hand. I'm totally getting ahead of myself lol.

    My cycles took ages to return to normal, it's possible your body is still sorting itself out.
