After forgetting my log in information for the better part of a year, I'm so happy to be back on these boards.
After obsessively charting, tracking, and ttc for a year - I suffered a m/c in September, waited the 3 months recommended before trying again, and here we are.
CD32 & 14-17 DPO. My period is now 3 days late. I've taken 5 tests (Please don't judge!) and each one is a very obvious and clear BFN.
WTF? I am so sad. I'm not charting, or tracking symptoms. I wanted to have a laid back approach to this round of ttc. Now it's the first cycle - and I'm driving myself crazy!
I guess my cycle is still recovering from the m/c. Has anyone had experience with this?

There is no "normal" after MC. My first cycle post-MC was actually one of the most normal I've EVER had (but my LP was slightly longer), but then after that, it was a crap shoot. Three months out I ended up with a cycle where I spotted almost the entire time.
Your hormones could still be straightening themselves out.
One thing that made me less crazy (but I realize this is a "to each their own" kind of thing) was charting BBT. At least then I could have the data and science to back up what was happening with me and I didn't second guess what was happening.
I hope you can find something that helps you too.

@CATWOMAN: I am very sorry for your loss. I had one in August and it's heart-wrenching. As far as your cycles, I would guess you either O'ed later than you thought or you are having an anovulatory cycle. On average, women have one per year. Best wishes in the future!

I'm so sorry. After my first MC I had really wacky cycles. I think cycle 3 was like 20 days and cycle 4 or 5 was like 45 days. It was CRAZY.
