Question Who waited the longest?

What is the longest any of you have waited for a positive HPT after your period was due? I'm totally late, still testing negative, but sure I'm preg - help!

Well, you probably will not like my response but I had a faint, faint line 4 days before my period was due. HOwever, I have very good tests that detect at 20 MiL. The store brands don't detect for 50 or even 100. You have to check into the level of the test.

Good luck...

I showed positive right away but I had a friend that kept testing negative over and over and was REALLY late on her period. She finally went to the doctor for a blood test and it came out positive. See if your doctor will give you a blood test - those NEVER lie!
Good luck!

I honestly can't remember how long I waited. When I was pg with my son, I didn't realize it until a cousin told me to check with the doc to see if I was pg because I hadn't gotton my af and had terrible cramps. I was 8 weeks when I found out.
With my second pg (we were trying this time), I got 2 neg HPT's and finally went to the hospital for a blood test because I was about passing out at times and didn't know what was wrong with me. They told me I was pg, but didn't have a viable fetus because my hormone levels were so low. However, she turned out to be fine. Must have just been someone that registers on the low side.

Have you heard back from the Dr. about your results? I'm so excited for you, the same thing is happening to me, i am really late now, and I'm not sure what to think!!

Oh well - blood test neg! Still no AF so I'm going to the doctor on Thursday - it would've been an unplanned but wonderful "surprise" but it made me realize that I really do want another baby - so...maybe we'll really start trying - good luck to all of you and thanks for your support.

I had a feeling I was pg at the first day.. waited 2 wks and tested neg. 2 more wks.. neg. again.. another week still neg. went to the doctor he said I was just have a bad time with pms.. I knew though.. so waited another week.. positive positive positive.. I was about 6wks from conception when I tested pos. So go get a blood test.. that is the most accurate.. of course I just waited till I was absolutely late on my p. Everyone is different.. you might be testing to early.. some won't come out positive until you have been pg for at least 30 days.. Good Luck!!

2bzy, I am so sorry about your negative. Good luck with your doctor's appointment. I hope you end up with a positive! If not, it is always fun to try! Lord knows, I am still waiting for AF and it is CD 39 today. I have taken 2 HPT's and both were negative. So perhaps it's just wishful thinking for me?? I guess I will find out next Tuesday when I go to the Doc. Best of luck to you both!!
