Pregnancy Plan Most home pregnancy tests will give accurate results if you test at the time your period would normally be due, about two weeks after you ovulate. A test may be negative for several reasons. You may not be pregnant. Or, you may have ovulated later than you thought, and not be as far along in pregnancy as you thought. One in 10 women can have very low levels of hCG levels at the time of a missed period. If you have a negative result, but still don’t get your period, test again three days later. If you are pregnant, the levels of hormone may build up enough by then to be picked up by the test. However, if you are trying to conceive, I suggest you to follow this pregnancy plan that has helped more than a thousand women to be successful in getting pregnant in no time.

She kept stating that she knew she was pregnant and kept testing negative and they kept telling her she wasn't (no routine ultra sounds at that point) based on the pregnancy tests. She finally demanded a physical and a doctor confirmed that her cervix was blue and her uterus was at 11 weeks.

She didn't get a positive blood test until 12 weeks! Wow!
A friend of mine's cousin had kept getting kidney infections and went to hospital they did an ultrasound and found out she was pregnant. She was 3 months already. She had no idea because she kept getting a period. My other friend had a very weird period and still felt something wasn't right and tested negative up until 8 weeks and than a positive. I have no idea why so many women have undetectable hcg? It makes it hard for women and very confusing. Our bodies can be trying to tell us something but than again they also play tricks on us as well.

I'm new here, sorry if I'm reviving a dead thread.

This is good to hear, because I've gotten a negative (to be fair I did test like two days after missing my period) and if I'm not pregnant I'm having a 60 day cycle... not good. :l

I wonder too!

WOW after reading this entire thread I really thought they all would have posted what happened! It just dropped off! WE have been TTC for a year. being older we had to go see someone and found out we both had some issues. This cycle I went on clomid, had an ultra sound and saw a very large mature follicle, got the pos OPK the next morning, saw my BBT dip the next day then go up and up and up.. i have the highests temps I have ever seen (been temping 5 cycles) I am now day15 dpo should have started yesterday, have had three BFN! I had what I assume was implantation bleeding 5 days ago, then four days ago felt odd all day, could not be around food, threw up and could not eat until the next day. Now four more days of constant nausea. And super emotional all last week.. If I am not pregnant this time it will for sure be the most surprising and devastating cycle by far!

Just wanted to say AF did come and boy was she heavy!  I'm still convinced that I was PG due to all the symptoms and implantation bleeding.  I found an interesting study that showed a correlation between days it takes egg to implant and miscarriage.  I can't find the link to the study now, but basically it says most eggs take 7-9 days to implant.  After that, the longer the egg took to travel the higher the rate of miscarriage.  If an egg implanted at 14dpo, the miscarriage rate was 80%!  

 

Hope you got your answer strmis!  The TWW can drive a person insane sometimes.  Good luck!

02-08-2014 11:18 PM
strmis Just stumbled across this. What ever happened to OP? Anyways, I think in 21 dpo, though not really sure. Had what I thought would be af 2 weeks ago with some spotting. Tested two days ago with a. Bfn. Still getting cramping but no af yet. I didn't knew this was such a comin thing! I feel like im in a support group of sorts! Lol....

I'm in the same boat.  Dollar Store BFN's on 15dpo and 16dpo.  AF is due tomorrow at 17dpo.  Been having major bloating and breast swelling.  I had what I believe to be implantation bleeding 1 week ago...2 little dots of red blood when wiping, about the size of a sharpie marker.  I had all these symptoms when I was pregnant with my son.  If AF doesn't come tomorrow I will try a FRER test.

mummapuss I don't think this month is a bfp for me. 19dpo and nothing greensad.gif gl

For those of you who just found this thread, like me, it seems that she WAS pregnant!  I'm 15dpo and bfns.. hoping for something soon

mummapuss

This is happening to me right now, im 4 days late for AF, and 18dpo. I've done hpt tests and a blood test, all saying BFN!! Dr has asked me to go back next week for a urine test to see...my mother-in-law told me that when she was pregnant with her second baby, she knew she was pregnant, but all tests told her no, but she was right, and ended up having my annoying brother-in-law.

 

I've heard women don't get BFP until as late as 6 weeks into pregnancy if they are pregnant. With my first this didn't happen, but i didn't record when i tested, but i know that AF was late, so i suppose i tested a week or so after AF was late, but that was 2 years ago.

 

I hope we get our BFP this month, would be a great christmas present for us all! Goodluck and lots of baby dust xxx

Hope you get yours soon.

Hey :) I'm not sure if I could handle waiting so long! With my son I found out at 4w4d being two days late. I hope you get your bfp soon :)

It's really not that great. Doesn't seem to be doing me any favors, anyway :

I still want to call them back on Monday and ask what my number were on thyroid stuff. Of course, I want it to be fine, but then I read that some people might seem fine on tests, but still have problems. So I don't know. I'm not sure what my next step would be. Do I just think that ok - it is fine, or do I keep pursuing something anyway.

Yes, I am very disappointed on the BFN. But we have just started trying, so I can't really complain yet.

I think not buying any more hpts seems like a great idea. I know it is hard, but I think that getting the bfns is even harder. Please please let us know what happens on Tuesday when you see your midwife.

<----------- I feel like this.

I am new to this site, but I will be praying for your doctor's visit. I am in somewhat of the same situation, although I am only 17 or 18 DPO. I have been having major cramping for about 4 days with no sign of a period. All of my HPTs have come back negative. I am already frustrated and exhausted at this point so I can only imagine what you are going through. Please let us know!

cmoma Oh hun to you,

Is this your doctors office? or the lab place? I hope they are open for you tomorrow!
08-22-2008 04:01 PM
Shonahsmom Awwwww! I'm SO sorry. I think you and hubby should try to do something really fun and different this weekend to try to take your mind off it.. well, I know that's impossible, but maybe it will be possible to enjoy yourself a little. I'm so sorry!
08-22-2008 03:09 PM
valeria_vi I have just officially lost my mental stability.
I've just called the office and guess missed the timing by a couple of minutes. They close at 1 on Fridays. Noone called me. And they are only open every other Saturday. I have no clue if tomorrow is their open or closed day. I might know nothing till Monday. I am loosing it completely.

The thing is, if I would have been told right away that the results will be in on Monday/Tuesday/whatever day, I'd just prepare myself., But I was told that the result will be in the next day, which was yesterday. So I had expectations Isn't that only human? Even worse is that they got dh's results and called him, but nothing, nothing for me. I even called yesterday in the evening and the receptionist told me that looks like the doc has to review my test results and I left the number at which I could be reached (plus, they have it on forms I filled out. I really don't know - may be they didn't even have them in. A receptionist might not know all the details). But nobody called me today and now they are closed for the day. I'm a basket case. :

what worries me that I was also getting some thyroid testing. and I remember the doc saying that if TSH comes back abnormal, then she asks for Tree T3/T4 testing using the blood that's already in the lab. So now I am wondering if that was the case. That she got back a bad TSH number and wanted T3/T4. But still - if that was the case she should have called me anyway, right? So I am hoping that it was just a timing issue at the lab (not a bad TSH) and that I'll know everything today.

I assume that everything is still the same for you, Shonahsmom?
Awww lady, I hope you get some answers soon.

Still the same here.
