Hi everyone, Im just new to this so would be so happy of any help. I lost my son 6 months ago, he was my first child, my perod has returned to normal and I have been regular for the last 4 months. I am now 9 days late, I did 2 HPT last week, but this was after a couple of alcoholic drinks and both were negative, I have since stopped drinking (not that I have a problem it was just a social event) in the hope that I am pregnant again, I feel queasy and tired, my boobs are fine. I didnt take a test with my first baby until 5weeks and it showed up in 2 seconds that i was pregnant. Has anyone had some similar issues and can offer advice on what to do, i dont want to take another test in case its negative and i spin into a surrowful mess, but i know i should bite the bullet. I guess Im just constantly checking at each loo visit and expecting my period to arrive at any second.

It may take some time for the hormones that indicate you're pregant to show up in your urine. Thus, even when you're pregnant, the results are negative if done too early. I would wait until you're at least two weeks late until you do the test again....but if you can't wait, then go to the doctor for a blood test to make sure! :)

I had a friend that took several pregnancy tests. They all came back as negative or unreadable. She finally had to go into the doctor to have a blood test because the regular test just wasn't working for her. Also, stress can throw your cycle off. I've also heard that ectopic pregnancies can give you the same symptoms as a regular pregnancy, but the hormones won't show up for a pregnancy test. For your peace of mind and possibly your health, make an appointment at the doctor's office to find out for sure.
