So as of today I am 7 days late for my period. Took a HPT this AM and it was negative. We were not actually ttc but I had not been given the ok to start birth control again until a couple weeks ago so had only been using condoms and had one oops this last month. I was suppose to start nuvaring this coming one. I wasn't really worried because we have been of the mindset that if it happened it was no big deal but were not trying on puropse. What really has me wondering now that I'm late is I have been really tired the last week in the afternoon like last time and my cat is driving me crazy again! Last pregnancy he got rediculouly lovey and was constantly trying to be on my lap. It started mildly last time before I even knew I was preg and now he is starting to do it again.

Was wondering what everyone suggests to do... I was thinking of waiting it out one more week and then if still a negative test to call the doctor. My only concern is that since my first was a micropreemie at 27 weeks I was suppose to start on some meds (like asprin and possibly a steriod) before we tried to have another. So should I wait or should I try to push for a blood test now? What would everyone else do?

I would recommend going to the doctor. When I was worried of being pregnant, I took 2 at home pregnancy tests on different days, and BOTH said negative. I went to the doctor, low and behold, I'm pregnant. Good luck!

i would do the blood test now, casue maybe they can give to something the help the baby development if you are, the sooner you find out for sure the better off you'll feel.

my advice to you is go to the doctor and do a pee test and a blood test. i took 4 home tests and i knew that i was pregnant but they all came back negative. turns out i have really low hormone levels and it couldnt be detected by the home test. i'm 31 weeks pregnant now, and i still cant get any brand of home test to come up positive. so go to the doctors, and good luck xx

With my last pregnancy, I took 2 tests and got a negative on both. When I test the third time, it was positive. Shortly there after, went to my doctor who confirmed the pregnancy with a blood test. My son is now 9 and half months old. Wait another couple of days then test again. If it's still negative, call your doctor and tell him you'd like a blood test! Good luck! Hope everything works out for you! :)

You can push for a blood test,but there are people out there who have taken blood pregnancy test and had it come out negative even though they were pregnant.Also,many doctors believe that you are not pregnant unless it shows up on the stick.It can be hard getting them to give you a blood test for pregnancy if they don't believe that you are really pregnant.It might be because many insurance companies only pay for things that are medically necessary.If you go now,the doctor will probably tell you to wait it out.Sometimes it takes more than 30 days for my period to come back after having it,and I did miss a period for a month and then I got it the next month.That was most likely causes by stress.So,don't stress out about this.Relax,don't talk about it with people and just wait at least 42 days after the first day of your last period.I read somewhere that a long menstrual cycle can last up to 42 days.
