With all 4 of my children I had negative tests the 1st time, what I did was bought a 3 pack of test and tested them throughout the day. Remember your hormones register better with your first pee of the morning. I hope you get the results that you are wanting.

It might be a possible pregnancy. I never had a blood test but I was six weeks late before I got a positive home test.

With my son i got 2 negatives then a positive, i even went to the doctor after doing the 2 negatives he gave me meds to give me my period and then went back and told him i took a 3rd and it was positive. He then did a blood test which comfirmed the 3rd test, and dated the pregnancy with that. He was the most accurate with the that test, even though the ultrasounds dated it 2 weeks later. i would say assume you COULD be pregnant so don't do anything that could risk a pregnancy until you know for sure. I don't know why your doctor wouldn't just give you the orders for blood work and tell you if it doesn't come by monday go get it done, but tell you don't go for it before monday. I know sometimes timing of the bloodwork can mean that levels of certain things that tell you that your pregnant can be higher.

thank u guys well yes i have been trying for a while. i will try to hold out till Monday or Tuesday or might just do the test before i go back to the docs on Tuesday so if the blood test comes back negative i have something to show him if mine is positive. but again we all hate waiting that long. we go to the toilet n yes or no is my period there or not it is just a big waiting game i hate it. i do not even know how i did it with my 3rd child i did not tell anyone or do a test until 2 weeks late.

You could be late for any number of reasons - pregnancy, stress, recent illness, etc. You very well could be pregnant, but you may not be. Try to relax and wait until Monday. A positive result may not show up right away, which is why most doctors will say to wait until you are at least 7 days late to take a test.
Good luck to you, and I hope things turn out the way you would like them to!

With my 2nd child the clinic test came back negative, when I took a home test it was positive. It took 3 days for the clinic test to come back positive when all the home tests I had taken were positive.

Fair enough...but if she is pregnant her HCT count would go up daily, so a couple of days could make enough of a difference to register on a pee stick. Maybe it's just me...I couldn't wait a whole week to test again if I thought I might be...

If she's already been to the doctor she's already had a pee-stick test done and it came back negative. Don't see how wasting more money on pregnancy tests is going to help?

Do a drugstore test now! Why not? You can get a 2 or 3 pack, and try again later in the week. If you really are already 4 days late, for sure it would show up on a pee stick between now and Monday...

Sometimes stress will make it late, and if you stress more it will make it more late. I've been there.
I had regular periods and then all of the sudden I was late. I took tests and they were negative so I couldn't understand what could be wrong. Stress was the culprit. Also if you've made any changes in your lifestyle, that could do it too.

I think there is something going around on CoM. Everyone is late.....
The symptoms could just be you about to start your period, it could have been a false negative, and you COULD be pregnant.
The only way to tell for sure is a blood test.
