How common is it to have neg HPT but actually be pregnant?
I am 6 days late, I am very tired and have sore nipples (which I usually do not get as part of my PMS). I have a pretty regular cycle, usually 28-30 days. I have taken tests almost every day since my first missed day but all have been negative. I was using Accu-clear then I switched to First Response because I thought they might be more sensitive. I am going to call the doctor tomorrow to see if I can get a blood test but I just wandered if anyone else had ever had this experience and if I am pregnant does it mean something could be wrong because the hormone is not showing up in my urine. Thanks in advance for any responses, I am a bit nervous about this as this was our first time TTC.
You shouldn't have anything to worry about. Just give it time. Do be a little cautious. I've had 3 ectopics and my tests kept coming out negative cause my hormones weren't rising appropriately. Of course they were negative with my son also until I was several weeks. Be persistent and ask for a beta quantitative HCG. It costs a little more, but it gives an actual # to show how far along you should be. They match those with your last cycle to determine if the pregnancy looks like it has a normal pattern...good luck
First of all thanks to all of those who responded! Well I went for me blood work on Saturday morning and wouldn't you know Sunday night I started getting that period feeling and sure enough I was spotting. Still spotting today and starting to get the period cramps. The doctor called this afternoon and said blood test was negative. I was of course disappointed but expected it after I started to spot. I was never this late before, today would be ten days late. This was the first time me and DH TTC. We had a big scare with DH being in the hospital right around O time so maybe that is why I am so late. (DH is fine by the way) If I don't start full flow in a day or two I will call the doc. Thanks again for your help, it is so nice to talk to other people who have had same problems!
