Hi Robyn, I can't offer you any success stories but I just wanted to say that I really hope that it is the case for you and that your BT will be +. I think what you need to ask for is a quantitative BT (that gives you the HCG levels) and not only qualitative (- or +). If it's above 5, then you are most probably pregnant. Here's a link about it:

Good luck and let us know what the BT says!

Robin: I haven't personally had that happen to me. However, I have had a false BT done!! The doc's told me It wouldn't be a viable preg. because my levels were too low. That baby is now going to be 8 years old in June!! Listen to your body first....I hope that you get the + at the doc visit. Good luck! -J

Robyn,

That happened to me with my first pregnancy. I used one brand of HPT that showed a positive, but a different (probably less sensitive) brand showed a negative. It could just be that the hpt's you used weren't sensitive enough.
Best of luck.

Crystal

i don't know if this helps either but I was 3 days late so i took a hpt, negative, waited another 3 days took another test, negative, went to the doctor the same day took a urine test, negative, got a blood test the same day, positive.
