How many pregnancy tests did you take before it come back positive, I've heard of them being negative even if you are pregnant.

Okay, so I couldn't wait an whole week to test again! I did it this morning and it was negative. I think I'll go to the doctor and get checked out, blood test etc just in case it's something else. Thanks again for all you helpful advise.

I took 3 with each of my pregnancies-Certain brands does not show up fast like other ones do!!!

[deleted account]

Thanks guys for all you advise, I'm going to wait another week to test again. If I am pregnant another week isn't going to make too much difference. I think Leah might be right about my body just getting ready for periods again. I'll let you know....

This is good unput ladies, thank you! I, too, have been feeling pregnancy symptoms. I had one test with a VERY faint second line and then did a different brand the next morning and it was negative. So, maybe I'll wait a couple weeks and try again. I'm probably just wishing I was pregnant :)

You may be getting ready to start back to your cycles! Last month I had pregnancy symptoms and my stomach was getting bigger and bigger and then finally one morning I started!! I had even gone to the dr for a blood test to have it ruled out because the symptoms were just like pregancy but I knew I couldn't be!! Maybe you are just getting ready to start back up again. Just relax and wait another week and if it you still have symptoms and a test comes back negative and your still concerned then go to dr:) BTW - Dollar tree pregnancy tests DO work so feel free to use them!! They are much cheaper. Sometimes you have to ask at the counter for them because they don't always keep them out on a shelf!

I only took one that came back negative when I was already pregnant. Even still the following 3 I took three days later only showed a faint positive :-\

I took one home test and it was VERY positive then I took another one at the dr. to make sure and that one was positive too. and when you hear of them being negative usually the women dont see the very faint second line That happend to me with my 1st son. I took like 10 test and I thought they were all negative but sure enough they were all positive with a line I could hardly see. I had to hold it up to a light to see it.

With my first pregnancy i took the one, then freaked out a little and did another. Both positive. Then wne to to doctors just to be sure. And yep. With my second, i knoew i was pregnant before i even took the test because i would just fall asleep on the couch or reading my son a book! I took a test and there it was.

I think it depends on how early you test. If you are late for your period then def test. But you said your period hasnt returned yet. SO if you are thinking that maybe you are, get a blood test, it picks up early low levels of HCG. But generally your pee will pick it up.. Recently I was so sure that i was pregnant i missed a period and kept testing but my period just decided to miss a month. I had all the signs of pregnancy, tender breasts, lethargy, but it came back negative. Then when i got my period it was very heavy and painful and i passed clots, could have miscarried i guess, but will ever know. Our bodies do some strange things after having babies.

I didnt get a chance to take one with my 1st because i went to the doctor thinking i had bladder infection, nope she came back and told me i was pregnant! yay, i had 2 misscariges between my 1st baby and now 2nd baby with whom i took about 6-7 tests just to make sure plus i was excited to pee on them and see the results were positive!

[deleted account]

with my first son i only took one, but have a really really faint second line, so when i went to the doctor they did a blood test. i think i might be pregnant again, and have take 2 tests so far, both negitive, but i am 4 days late, and am always on time. A friend of my always has negitive tests, even when she was over 25 weeks! If you think you are and the test are still negitive, go to the doctor for a blood test, that is where I am headed on monday is still nothing happends!

With my first pregnancy, I took 7 and they all came up NEGATIVE. I didn't know I was pregnant until I miscarried. Then when I was pregnant with my first son, it wasn't until the 4th one that it showed positive (first 3 were negative) and with my second son, it was about 4 before I got a positive. And I never took a pregnancy test until I'd missed my period, so taking it to early was not my problem. So yes, I am very familiar with those false negatives.

If you are breastfeeding and your milk supply has dropped some then I would test again because that is usually one of the signs that you are pregnant.

I took one over-the-counter pregnancy test and when it came back positive, my husband and I made an appointment to see our health provider/doctor to be sure. This way, I can make arrangements for Lamasse classes and all that if need be.

[deleted account]

Thanks guys, I'm not sure when I should be testing because my periods haven't returned yet (it took 18months after my daughter) and I'm still breastfeeding my 1yr old. It's been about two weeks since we had unprotected sex so maybe it's too soon to get a positive result. I'm just suspicious I could be pregnant because I've got lots of symptoms..... or maybe it's just all in my head!

It took me a year to get pregnant, but I knew the moment I fell pregnant. I took a pregnancy test and it came up negative, but I still knew I was pregnant. I had to take a second one to show my partner tho, coz he didnt believe me LOL

[deleted account]

God - It took me three years so I lost count of the number of sticks I pee'd on! There is always a chance of a false result (either way) but the chances are small - unless you take the test too early. Generally though - I think if it comes back negative five weeks or more after you think you got pregnant then chances are its a true result and you just have to keep trying :)

i took two. only because my husband didnt believe the first one. of course the second one turned blue with a plus quicker then the first one so i knew it was true. some times when you take a test you get a false neg. not everything is perfect. and if its man made it will have errors so dont stress over it too much...wait after you take the first one and take another one if it comes out neg. w/ all the signs of being pregnant after a week then i would call your dr and make an appointment. it is better to go to the dr and ask questions then sit and wonder cuz that will eat you alive. good luck hope this helps.
