I am kind of in the same boat. I went in Nov 15th to sign final paperwork to get my tubes tied and the Doctor notified me that bloodowork they did back on Nov 1st showed me as positive for Pregnancy. I was on my period when that bloodwork was taken and we have been using condoms. I am very confused as to what happened lol. I did a Pee test Nov 16th and it came back negative. So am I pregnant or what...did the hospital make a mistake?

With my son I had like 10 negative urine tests as well. But the blood test was positive and those are to most accurate.
I had my daughter January 2006, miscarried, very early in sept. 2007, then again very early miscarriage Oct. 2008, and conceived my son Sept. 2009, he is now a very healthy 11 week old baby boy. It will be hard for you most likely until you hear babies heart beat, that didn't even do it for me, I wasn't fully ok, until we went for the ultra sound to find out the sex and once I could feel him kick. Also, I afraid to be excited about it because I was also on progesterone because I was not ovulating so to me being pregnant was a HUGE mystery with the 2 previous miscarriages and being on progesterone (your not supposed to be able to get pregnant on that). You are pregnant hun! Congrats and relax. Take care of yourself!

This is a follow up to my earlier post (Rebecca Lynn Marie Aubertin)
In my case what happened was I WAS in fact pregnant but it was an early miscarriage about 5wks along..followed by an immediate NEW pregnancy which was not yet far enough along to be detected.
My son is now 6wks old :)

It's possible to get a negative result from a home pregnancy test when you're actually pregnant. This is known as a false-negative — and it's much more likely to occur than is a false-positive. You might get a false-negative if you: Take the test too early, Check test results too soon, and Use diluted urine. Anyway, if you are TTC you should consider reading ‘The Getting Pregnant Plan’ by Michelle Adams from http://aboutgettingpregnant.com. The 200 pages of information contained in the book will not only help you in accurately and swiftly pinpoint your ovulation, boosting your fertility, understanding changes in the female body and so on, but the folks on the website will also guide you through your use of the book until you successfully conceive. It's really amazing that they still maintain communication with me after having bought the book for 7 months. They consistently helped me throughout my pregnancy.

Tammi,

I am in a very similar boat as you were. What ended up being the verdict? Were you pregnant or no? My period was late, took two tests, both positive. However, unlike my first two boys, I have had spotting and bleeding with this one. It got heavy to the equivalent of the heaviest part of a regular period and started to taper off (didn't have any big clotting pass though). Took two more pregnancy tests and they were both negative. So I have assumed I miscarried. However, I currently have heartburn which I have ONLY had when pregnant. I have a blood test scheduled for Tuesday. Just wondering what your outcome was.

I concieved on january 27th. Took a digital pregnancy test. It was positive. Got a doctors confirmation on feb. 17th. (So im about 5 weeks and a few days) Started spotting and cramping the day after up until the 21st. The spotting got heavy on the 19th then back to spotting.Followed up with a doctor and urine test came back negative but blood test postive. Is there still hope I could be pregnant or did I miscarry? I really want to be pregnant but Ive had 2 other miscarriages. I had a child in between those miscarriages who is now 5. If I did miscarry, which im hoping I didnt, how soon can I try again? Tomorrow?

To know for sure get a second opinion! It may be in your head if you REALLY want another baby. Other wise you could have had an early miscarriage. HOWEVER, if it's been 3 weeks since she said there were no signs of pregnancy, you could now be pregnant (could have gotten pregnant after the ultra sound etc).

i know that you think you still might be pregnant but i had a missed miscariage in march, i had a slight brown discharge but that was all i had bad sickness to and because of your hormone levels it can take about 2-3 weeks to go.you said that you had an untrasound and nothing maybe the sack has already gone maybe that's why your bleeding a normal m/c. i know it's hard my baby's heart was not beating from 6 weeks on but it took another 6 weeks of test and blood test to realise it was a missed miscariage and had to have a D/C at 3 months. i am now pregnant again and am 4 months but still scared because i bleeding on and of for the first 3 months. but every scan said there was a heartbeat this time from as early as 5 1/2 weeks so i understand why you can't get excited because i still can't but good luck and i know we all just want that baby in our arms.

Well i went to the doctor and she did more blood tests and an ultrasound because I started to bleed and she told me there was no sign of pregnancy so she thought it was a false positive or an early miscarriage but now 3 weeks later my pregnancy symptoms have only gotten stronger and my tummy pudging more....called the doctor and she acted like I was crazy and couldnt be having symptoms b/c I was absolutely not pregnant ....!!! Is there any way that I could really be pregnant????? I dont know what to do anymore!!! Is it all in my head???

trust the blood test. if it says your peregnant then 95% of the time you pregnant they are more reliable but in a few weeks you should be having an appointment that will let you hear the heart beat. if you are still not sure

I agree with what the other ladies are saying. I had a pee test come back positive once and when they tested my blood it was negitive (at the time it was a huge relief) so in my opion the blood does not lie. Good luck! Let us know what the ultrasound says.

Urine tests are never as accurate as blood tests. Trust the blood test. I had a blood tests tell me that I was pregnant when I was only 4 weeks!

At 7 weeks there may not be enough hcg in your urine to register on a urine pregnancy test. Blood tests are much more reliable. If you are worried, have another blood test taken to see what the levels are, your levels go up rapidly in the 1st trimester.
