As of today I am a week late getting my period (I am always usually right on time give or take a day) but I have taken 3 pregnancy tests and they are all negative. However, I am still having doubts because I am showing symptoms: breast tenderness, tightness and cramping like I'm about to start, and then today while fixing my 3yr olds lunch the smell of the ranch I put on his plate made me nauseus, and I later got sick this evening as well. What is going on!? Any ideas?

If you believe you may be pregnant I suggest getting a blood pregnancy test done through your doctor. I took NUMEROUS home tests when I was first pregnant w/my son and they all came out negative! I was taking home tests up to what we found out was about 6 wks, I took a home tests the morning before going in to my doctors office to take a blood test, again the home test came out negative and the dr's test proved it wrong and was positive.

I know how you feel. My periods are normally on time, but this past month I was a week late. I had cramping, breast tenderness, bloating...all that fun stuff. I took a pregnancy test & it was negative. A few days later I finally started my period. I don't know why it took so long to start, but sometimes our bodies can be funny like that. I know it's hard to wait, but I'd hold off a few more days & see if anything happens. If your period still doesn't come, it won't hurt to give the doc a call. :) Good luck!

The more you stress about the longer it will take for your period to come. Your days will feel like weeks. Relax, read a book, go for walks in a few more days you will know for sure. Good Luck

It is possible to have a false negative but not usually a false positive. So if its negative and you are having symptoms I would call the doctors office, and make an appointment.

Make sure you take the test in the am.. first urination ro just go to your doctor. that was me when i ended up prego with my son. i took 4 tests and the 1st 3 were neg. if youre not ready to go to a dr then give it another week

with my first kid i was like 2 months along and still no hpt showed positive had to go to the dr my second kid showed on hpt within a few days of missing and the last i didnt find out till i was 3 months along and finally missed a period. Then here few months ago i was 3 weeks late and i finally started i think it was a change in my life i had less stress and was exercising but since that the next period was 1 week before the previous and the last one was also earlier. So it has a lot to do with your body and your weight and what all you do and stress the slightest change can throw it off

Wait a few days and test again. It could be that there isn't enough of the pregnancy hormone for the test to pick up thus giving you a false negative, I did the same thing with my last pregnancy. If you test again and it's still negative, call your doctor!

I'd wait another week before doing anything. Don't drink just in case though! My periods are always on time, I mean to the day. I was 11 days late once, took a pregnancy test it was negative. My period started the next day. I was really stressed out & tired & sick at the time.

Thanks for the advice! Haven't really been stressed about anything more than usual but I think I am just going to try and wait it out, not focus on it too much and if another week goes by I will go have the blood test done. Gonna be hard though because I'm extremely impatient!!

You might not be far enough along for a pregnancy test to come up positive.

you're pretty much describing me this entire past week, and then yesterday I finally got my period. Have you been stressed lately? I find that can mess around with my period a little, and of course as long as you are anxiously waiting for it to start, murphy's law says that you will have to wait...

You're only a week late. Just don't drink and wait a bit before you take another one before you rush off to the doc about it.

Take yourself to the GP and go from there!! You culd also be building yourself up from strss of might being pregnant. Hope all works out for you!
