I've been on birth control for about 6 years. I had an irregular period before (missed for a whole year....hence the birth control) but ever since I've been extremely regular. I typically get my period consistently within a 4 hour window. Only twice has it been off. Once a couple years ago I was 6 hours "late." And the second time....is right now! I should have gotten it overnight Monday night but it is over 24 hours later and still no period. I did have a little bit of brown somehting in my underwear yesterday but I normally bleed with a "regular" not light flow with one heavy day (sorry if TMI). I know one day wouldn't freak most people but this is weird for me.
Logically, there are a lot of factors that make this seem like it could be no big deal. I have been working out the most I ever have on this particular BC (switched in October because my normal one was recalled). I have been eating healthier which generally means less since I don't consume so many empty calories. FI moved 4 hours away 2 1/2 wks ago and I have only seen him for 24 hours since so sex has been decreased drastically (well, it is non-existent obviously except for that 24 hours). My stress has been up because it is midterms at school and FI and I have had a tough time transitioning to long distance. I also logically know if it were to be pregnancy, FI is with me 100% so I don't have to do it alone or anything. And he's aware of what's going on so he's being a champ and remaining calm somehow.
But, emotionally I'm playing the what-if game in my head. I'm only 24 and we wanted to wait a while (we do want kids we just want to get some other stuff done first and have some time just us). I really don't feel ready (of course you rise to the occassion but still so overwhelming). We have this wedding in 7 months! I just started going back to school! Our finances are scarce.
The logically argument is far stronger but obviously my hormones are whacked now so how do I keep the emotional argument at bay!? Fortunately I see FI this weekend so I have someone there to keep me calm and if need be don't have to take a preggers test alone.
