I had my daughter November 2003. Resumed my cycle when she turned 8 months old, starting every 7 weeks until now. My last period was October 26th. I took a pregnancy test over the weekend it came out negative without a doubt. I am still nursing my daughter and was wondering if that could be a reason. Does anyone have ideas what could be going on?

I don't know what could be going on, but I would get a blood (pregnancy) test to be sure. Maybe because you are nursing your hormones are fluctuating so you're not showing up pregnant?? A blood test should confirm either way, I believe.

I second the blood test- I got a "negative" 2 times before getting a positive on the home pregnancy test- the only one that ever worked was the EPT. It may be too early to tell from one of the home ones.

I agree. I got a couple of negatives with DS@~ even a negative blood test b/c they did a yes/no test instead of a quanitative test. I was sure of my dates & finally got a (+), but it took a while. However, there wasn't any doubt as to when we concieved. I was still nursing my then 2 year old at the time. HTH!
