Anyone get a negative HPT at 15 DPO but were actually pregnant? Interesting story from my mom in... - Page 4

sbilady: How strange, guess we really are ALL different!

mayflowers: Good Luck to you!

valeria_vi: It seems very possible, especially knowing you have a history to not get a bfp on a test. If you don't get a bfp I would probably try to get in for an u/s at 5-6 weeks, since that was how they discovered your first pregnancy. How far along do you *think* you might be?

This thread is getting really interesting!

Shonahsmom: How are you doing today?

Patience wished for everyone.
So??? Inquiring minds want to know.

ah, thanks for reading my saga, cmoma. I got 2 BFNs this morning (used different brand). but it's just so weird how light, no cramps etc these last two periods had been. so if my suspicions is correct and I am pregnant, I'd think that I was pregnant at the time of the last, July, bleeding because it was already unusually light for me, but two weeks before it I had my usual symptoms of uncontrollable hunger etc (so I think - ovulation). based on that, I'd be 6-7 weeks along. I actually have an appointment with a family doc tomorrow. I was gonna check my thyroid but now I wonder if I should ask her for a blood test for HCG.

This made me giggle. Well today is officially the longest cycle I have ever experienced in my life, a day past my now second longest which only happened once in three years. I don't know if that made sense.

Anyway, I don't have an appointment. If it's still same shit/different day by Thursday afternoon, I'll call up the midwives and have them do a blood draw on Friday or Saturday.

DP and I have pinkie sworn that I will not test again until Thursday and that we will both try to shelve it until then. Try being the operative word.

I thought the shorter, much lighter flow was strange but chalked it up to stress and finals at school.

So it is possible - statistically speaking it's not very likely, but it does happen to some people. I still can remember the absolute shock when the ultrasound showed the little bean as being 11 weeks along.
Thanks for sharing, sostinkinhappy! I'm right there with you, septemberbaby68. I'm going onto my third day with light pink mucus. In all likelihood, it is just an abnormal start for AF. But I'm trying to hang on to hope here.

I think I will. I am trying not to become obsessive, but this weirdness keeps my mind spinning.

Hang in there, Shonahsmom.

mayflowers: this is what I've been getting my last two periods. so light, I was calling it spotting. I just kept waiting for it to turn into the "real thing", but then the spotting would just go away. weird, huh? I hope you get some kind of a definite answer soon. whatever it is.

Worried mum in the UK

I have not been trying to conceive but came across this thread when I was browsing today. To cut a long story short, my period is 10 days late but I keep getting negative HPT's which is driving me crazy : I have three kids and had positive tests with them all more or less straight away, I also have symptoms of early pregnancy like peeing a lot, slight nausea, cramps in my stomach and back and my nipples have got much darker. I took a test this morning which and again it was negative. I think I'm just going to ride it out for a couple of weeks and see what happens. Good luck to all you ladies TTC.

P.S Where is the best place to buy a test in the states as I will be in Florida on my hols until Sept 5th

completely unrealted (sorry), but I have to say this.

PEANUTBUTTERCUP.

Your username is KILLIN' ME. ESPECIALLY everyday I see one of your posts around..oh, 3pm.

For the love. I've just been told I may be hypoglycemic - can you see where the problem I'm having is?

I WANT TO EAT YOU. Is that terrible?

daisey, here in Florida we have lots of "Dollar Tree" (similar to pound shops) in the malls (shopping centers). You can get pregnancy tests there for a dollar (which, right now, is like only 50p for you!) that are very sensitive! That's where I've gotten mine.

Enjoy your holiday! And welcome to MDC! :

:

Shonahsmom: this goes back to the original question, although it may be a moot point now. I never charted, but went by CM like you, and thought that my guesses were pretty reliable since I kept getting knocked up on schedule. But for my last PG the REs made me use ovulation predictor kits (because I had to start progesterone therapy a certain exact number of days after O-day). The day I *thought* I ovulated (what I would have counted as "O-day" normally) didn't register as positive on the tests; the tests didn't show until the NEXT day. Well, so the tests don't say that you ARE ovulating but that you WILL in the next 24-48 hours. So my CM was a good predictor of O, but I seem to actually ovulate about three days AFTER I thought I was based on CM. Now I know that instead of CM=O, it's more like CM=O-3.

By this point those few days don't make a difference, since if you were at 12 DPO when you posted the question it was still awhile ago, but just for whatever it's worth. Good luck!!!!

(P.S. there are always stories floating around this board about babies w/o + tests. It does happen.
