Just wanted to mention that I had several negative tests and even a negative blood test. It wasn't until I missed a second period and took another blood test that it came out positive. They still have no idea why the first one came out negative. Are you having symptoms?

There are a couple of options, you can wait another week and take another test if you do not have your period or you can go to the doctor and get a blood test to confirm or deny the pregnancy. Also don't forget, the stress and wishing for the next pregnancy could delay your pregnancy. Don't be to depressed if your first test came back negative - I know a woman who was four months pregnant and the test still came up negative (weird I know but I saw it with my own eyes). She found out she was preggers when she went to her OB for her yearly check-up and the doctor did an ultrasound immediately in her office....and told her how far along she was. Granted she was a larger woman so she didn't show (she was actually loosing weight cause she was repulsed by food) and when she felt movement she just assumed it was from her not feeling very well. They now have three kids - and the second time when they were actually trying for a baby and she took a home test it again came out negative but got a blood test that confirmed the pregnancy immediately. Her doctor told her that it happens in about one in every 10000 pregnancies that the test does not pick up on the HCG in the urine. Good luck.

I'm having a similar problem; I thought I was pregnant, but got a negative pregnancy test. Different from you is that 1) I'm not trying to get pregnant right now, my son is only 8 months old and has had a lot of health issues, so not ready for another, and 2) my birth control caused me to stop having a period, so I don't have that to measure by. I've been having symptoms though, headaches, nausea, leg cramps, stomach pains, for about 3 weeks now. I think I'll try again in a couple of weeks if I don't feel better.

The hormones that tell your body that you are pregnant dont always get picked up by the over the counter kits eventyhough it says so on the box! equally your body can secrete these same hormones that make your body think that it is pregnant when it is not, the sure way is to see your doctor, their tests pick up better, they make you take another test anyway dont they even after you show them the stick? Just to be sure themselves!! Best of luck

well i've been trying for 2yrs now so every time im late i get excited. its heart breaking when its not positive isn't it??

my sisters test she took with her first kept comin up as negative, she waited another week or so and then it appered as positive. so maybe your taking it a little early x fairy dust coming your way x

also, sometimes brand name tests tend to be more sensitive than store brand tests. I had a friend who ran into that issue

My mom is a nurse and she told me that there are plenty false negative test results but rarely false positives.

this happened to me when we were first trying. and my period was like clock work every 4 weeks. and then it was 1 1/2 week late. i took a preg test and it was negative. i just wasnt pregnant. not to burst your bubble, but maybe it's right. try another test in about a week, cause sometimes it takes longer to show. and they say you dont have symptoms until about 2 months in or so, so i think it may be too early to tell just yet.

Maybe got to your doctor and ask for a blood test. Urine tests never came positive for me in either pregnancy.
