ok heres my problem. today before work i took a digital pregnancy test. i am 9dpo. it read very very clear pregnant. after telling my boyfriend(who was told when he was younger that it would be almost impossible for him to father a child due to varicocele )became excited and went out and got another digital test. this one clearly read not pregnant. in a matter of minutes we went to be the happiest couple to being so very very disappointed.what test do you think is right? i am afraid to retest because i hate to see another negative

I've seen a false negative, but never a false positive. The real question is do you feel pregnant? That's probably the best indicator. Eat spinach, it's never bad advice and it's good for a potential baby.

Agree with Dove testing first thing in the morning gives the best results. You can also get a blood test to be 100% sure! Congrats to both of you.

Most likely pregnant if you followed the directions properly on the first test. You are very early still, so the second test probably just didn't pick up the pregnancy hormone... especially since you took it later in the day. That's why tests usually say to take it with your first morning urine since the pregnancy hormone is the most concentrated at that time.

If you want to be sure.... wait a week and test with first morning urine.
