Hi there. i believe that i am pregnant. my period was due sunday, it's now friday. i've had nausea when i get hungry for two weeks now. but the early response says negative. i think its from the fact that i drink a lot of water every day. has anyone experienced this? thanks for your input.

I would try again with first morning urine before you start drinking your daily water.

It's totally possibly that you diluted your pee too much to get an accurate result. If the home pregnancy tests (hpts) aren't doing it for you, you might consider calling your provider for a blood test. I've heard that some women's pee doesn't carry enough hCG to trigger a positive pee test even when they are pregnant.

There's lots of great info and distractions at www.peeonastick.com too.
