Im just curious to see how many mothers out there got negative pregnancy test resutls but were actually pregnant. How did you end up confirming the pregnancy? Im four days late on my period and have taken three test; all of which have come back negative. I have a gut feeling that Im pregnant just like I did when I was pregnant with my two year old.

it took me at least 2 tests EVERY WEEK for 3 months till it came back positive. and i was 3 months when i got the tests back fromt he doctor. she thinks that i must have known the week i fell. i confirmed it and went to the doctor when i started vomiting every morning for no reason and was having what i thought was a heartattack but was actually indigestion. i have never had it before and i had it all the way thru. i used to get it that bad i would be in tears. so im pretty P O'd at the pregnancy tests for being so wrong. and yeah i tried every brand on the shelf

I took the pregnancy test early at 2 & 3 weeks pregnant, and it came up negative twice. Yet I could feel something was different about my body, even though I had my cycle it fell short a few days, and was very light. Afterwards, I had breast tenderness, and dizziness. I was 8 weeks pregnant when I took the test again, & decided to just have a Dr. confirm it, I knew I was pregnant I could feel it in every fiber of my being but couldn't prove it till I went to the Dr, lol. Now I'm in my third trimester, still baffled that I'm going to be a mother of two, what will now be my 2nd son. I never thought I'd be a mother of two but what is life without it's happy surprises!

I did, took a test on a sunday night, negative. Then the next day went to the dr (thinking it was a virus or flu I was experiencing) and nope...pregnant!

EEiisshh! After reading all of these posts... My last menstrual cycle was Jan 3rd, 2010. 3 tests later, I'm not pregnant... I have a 10 mo old, and recently found out my thyroid is low, and started a supplement. This is probably the reason, and the fact that we weren't supposed to be able to have kids in the first place.. After reading all these, it makes ya wonder.. I never knew I was pregnant w/ her until I was 8 wks, but was having symptoms.. I have none now.. Craziness....

well i would consider the blood test or schedule an ultra sound but look your own mind can play tricks on you especially if you want a baby or if your so careful to not get prego. try that first then wait a few more days.

I didnt even have any signs of being pregnant until 3 months later, considering I was on birth control and never had unprotected sex, after takin 5 test all coming out negative I thought for sure I wasnt! Then almost 2 months later I didnt get my period at all!! So your body has a mind of its own.... Id say go get a blood test to know for sure or youll end up in my boat!!!! and that boat stunk

Isn't it funny how they say you typically get pregnant 12-14 days after your period and that is often not the case. I took 7 pregnancy tests with my 2nd including the idiot proof ones that say "yes" or "no". I knew I was pregnant! It wasn't until 2 weeks after my missed period that it finally came back "YES". Congrats in advance!

Im still waiting to find out. Im two weeks late but I was told that I should wait until I miss my next period before I go in to get tested. This is so frustrating........

i tock around 6 home tests and a blood test (which where all negative) over around 4 months before i finally got a positive test the only reason i kept trying is because i hadn't had a period since my son was born who at the time was about 9 months old.

I did, and my blood test also came back with a slight hormone level, but the dr assumed i miscarried and asked me to go back for another test the following week. I did and that one came back positive. It turns out my levels weren't high enough yet as I actually fell pregnant 2 days before my period. We worked it out as we hadnt had intercourse all month until 2 days before, (we were working opposite shifts all month.)

I had two negative home pregnancy tests before I got my positive Beta. The first one was only 10 days past ovulation, which is supposed to be the earlies the early tests can pick up on the pregnancy hormone. If you read the fine print on those early tests, they are only 55% accurate that early so in hindsight I should not have been surprised. I took another test two days later, which was supposed to be 85% accurate, and it came up negative again. I was convinced I wasn't pregnant and was absolutely shocked when the Beta came back positive. Turns out the home tests can't pick up a positive until you hit a 50 on the Beta, mine was 46 so I would have got a positive had I taken the test late that same day. Best of luck, I hope it's a positive! (Please let us know!)
