    Default Completely Confused New Charter!

    Hi All,



    I started charting last month, in hope to conceive # 2 by March 08. I am totally confused! One website said to start first day as spotting, others have said when bleed becomes heavy. AF is late now whichever way you look at it but tests are all neg. I didn't need to chart for #1, she happened 1st time we tried!
    Can anyone please answer these questions....
    Is day 1 of the cycle the first day of your period?
    Is it when it is heavy or spotting?
    How long do I continue testing for, (if they are all neg) before I see the Dr in case something else has up.
    What should my cervix feel like?
    Whats the latest after missed AF has anyone got neg test but actually been preg?
    Any help will be much appreciated.

    I'll answer one of your questions. Day one is the first day of full flow.... not spotting. Full flow could be light or heavy but it is a flow of blood not a spot here and there.

    The other thing I can tell you is I've seen heaps of ladies in here that have late AF's that aren't pregnant. It's very common to have a longer cycle once in a while even if you are regular as clockwork.

    Like satya said, day one is the first day of full bleeding before midday.

    Generally (not always) the cervix dips down when AF is near, but then I got a positive this cycle and my cervix was quite low, so I don't think cervix position tells you anthing other than when you are ovulating.

    My SIL never got a positive pregnancy test for her first pregnancy, they just didn't work for her, only a BT could cofirm her pregnancy.

    I would wait a week and see a dr if AF still hasn't arrived.

    GL!
