-- Negative test at the doctors

Hello everyone,
I am so happy I found all of you. I have been stressing out all month waiting for a ppt. I am only two days late however, I have been taking tests since 3 dpo, I know I am obsessed, well atleast that is what is my hubby thinks. Anyhow, the other day I thought that there was a faint line so did my hubby but he encourage me not to jump to conclusion and to see the doc. So today I did and low and behold it was -. Is there anyone who has had this happen and waited a few more days and found that you really were pregnant? I was really hoping the test would be + and we could celebrate tonight.
Oh well I guess it was not meant to be.

Re: -- Negative test at the doctors

Hey there Faith,

Did the doc do a blood test or urine? There was another gal who had the urine come back -, but the blood test came back +. If you didn't have a blood test I would make an appt to do that. When I went to the doc I had a very faint line. It is entirely possible you could be! But just do the awful waiting thing and see if AF shows up. I waited about a week until I tested.

Did you have any small spotting when you were due for your AF? Let us know how everything goes o.k.!!

God bless,

Re: -- Negative test at the doctors

Hi Faith, I did have a similar experience. I started taking home tests 8 days before AF and got a faint line. I went to the student health center on campus for a urine test the day after AF was due and got a negative. I was never late, like clockwork, actually, so I went 2 days later when af still hadn't come to the nurse practitioner at the nursing college (this was all free, is why I did it)and got what we thought was another negative. As she was talking to me, she looked down and realized that there was a second line. She did tell me that the professional tests were usually less sensitive than the OTC tests and it could take a week for some to pick up. Luckily, I tested that time with first morning urine (which has a higher concentration of HCG) or it may not have shown up then. You may want to wait a couple days and try again to be sure!

Re: -- Negative test at the doctors

Faith,
If they only did a urine test, please request that they do a blood test!!! I just had that happen yesterday!! I went in cause I had hpt that had very faint lines and was late. The NP told me the test was negative (urine test) I asked if they could please do a blood test then since I was 2 weeks late and am NEVER late! So they did and sure enough, it was possitive!!! I know how it feels to be so sure that you are... you feel different have symptoms, then the doctor comes out and says that you are not. <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/dizzy.gif"> It is gut wrenching! We had to wait an hour for the blood test results and I was on the verge of tears the whole time... but it all turned out as a + and I am now very excited and happy and have a story to tell the lil one when they grow up.

Sorry this ended up kinda long... but please if you didn't already... REQUEST THE BLOOD TEST!!!!

Sending baby dust your way *~*~*~*~*~****~*~*~****

Re: -- Negative test at the doctors

When I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter I had what I thought was a negative urine test. I was 3 weeks late and I really didn't think much about it because that is not uncommon for me to be late. I felt sick to my stomach though and had just been informed a friend of mine was pregnant. So, I took a test at the doc's office that I worked at. It was negative, only one line.Well the next morning I went into work and got to thinking about the test. I dug it out of the trash and low and behold it had a faint positive line.
My cousin had that happen to her with an otc test , she thought she wasn't pg but she decided to look at the test a day later and she was positive.
Get a blood test or wait another week and do another urine test with your first morning urine.
Good Luck!

Re: -- Negative test at the doctors

Thank-you all for the great advice and forthe warm welcomes I received. It is like I said before really nice to have great people who understand what I am going through. This will be my first pregnancy and I think because we have been trying on and off for a year now I am getting anxious. I am going to call if AF does not come before that on Monday and schedule a blood test. I rather find out earlier than later and relax my mind. Once again thank-you all

Re: -- Negative test at the doctors

Thank-you so much for your advice.
i cannot believe how inaccurate the tests can be for some and so on for others. I am calling the doc tommorrow. I am now 3 days late, and sooooooo bloated it is crazy. Other symptoms are things that are in my head I am sure, other than the spotting in the middle of the cycle which I swear was implantation bleeding. Anyhow, like I said thanks for the advice babygrant.
