    Well at least you'll know fairly soon. I hope you're not worrying too much. It's highly unlikely that it's pregnancy, I think, and I also doubt it's something serious ... I think it's not uncommon for women to skip periods. Hope your test results come back all clear!

    13 days isn't TOO bad. Honestly, I think up to a month late is pretty normal, as long as it's not happening on a regular.

    Sometimes our bodily functions can be irregular due to the slightest change in stress levels, change in lifestyle, diet, exercise, etc.

    My best friend's period is so irregular that she freaks out when it actually comes on time lol She can't even keep count anymore, cuz it has a mind of its own. She'll get it today, then 2 months from now, then the next month, then skip 3 months, etc., and there's apparently nothing wrong with her.

    I also doubt you're pregnant, and you have been bloated for a while & are feeling symptoms of your period coming on. My guess is you're pretty close to shedding, but for some reason it's just taking longer than usual.

    Don't stress it for now. Whenever I'm a few days late on my period, I freak out (even though I haven't been sexually active for months). The moment I forget about it & stop freaking out is when I get it lol

    Haha, well, I've still not had it, and we're up to 18 days now. I definitely feel "swollen", it's hard to keep my stomach looking flat, but nothing's going on. It's never been like this before, even coming on and off birth control.

    I'd just wait it out if I were you. 18 days still isn't too bad, I dont want to scare you but I didn't get a positive on both my pregnancies til I was 10 weeks gone. For some reason my blood and urine just didnt throw anything up til then. Bit like your mum really. With this pregnancy I had no idea and I know that sounds dumb of me but my periods were irregular and when it didn't come in July like it should have I suspected but tested and waited then tested again...and again. lol. I put on weight, not bloated, actually put on a few pounds around the middle.
    Im not saying you are pregnant but just be aware that it could happen, there is no point worrying yourself and freaking out, you cant really make any decisions til you know for sure anyway can you? I know its hard but just wait it out and try to carry on as normal. Hope this helps

    I got a call from the Doctor's office today: said that it's "not urgent, but they would like me to come in".

    Whatever that means...

    I'm not trying to worry you, but when my doctor's office contacted me a few months ago, they said the exact same thing. "It's not urgent, but it's important that you come in at your earliest convenience."

    It was for the results of my first pap smear. I ended up having HPV (gone now), but it scared the heck out of me.

    I hope yours isn't anything similar, but you should go in as soon as possible just to be safe.

    They called me in for NOTHING it seems.

    He said my HCG is "zero" and my hormones seem spot on, but then said I should retest (blood) in another 3 weeks if I still haven't menstruated. THEN he said that the other doctor was jumping the gun testing me for these things anyway (thought I was glad my thyroid was working 100%, long wondered about it, figured to ask for it since I was getting poked anyway) and that they don't usually start diagnostics for amenorrhea until 3 months.

    And THEN he gave me the little pep talk about how these things tend to sort themselves out on their own, but if my discomfort gets worse, to by all means come back. And then he made me pee in a cup to test for UTI (was this this reason for calling me in?) and send me on my way.

    So....? I get to get bloodtested again in 3 weeks?

    I talked to my friend who is a nurse, and she said that no woman ever has "Zero" HCG, and even Wikipedia confirmed that (when has THAT ever lied to me, LOL), and said I should get an ultrasound, even if I have to pay privately for it. I'm actually about to, just to put an end to this, and know if I can enjoy my annual mulled wine festivities this week or NOT. If I am pregnant, I would be about 7 weeks now, and that should show up on imaging.

    PS: This was a cocky young male doctor, not the "Everybody's Mommy" doctor I had before who ordered the blood test (and, ironically, prescribed the birth control! LOL) I've never seen this young man before, but he certainly seems to think he's an expert on the way a woman's body works.

    Women sometimes have a month where they do not get a period.
