I just knew that DH & I had conceived 1 whole Thursday ago, but I was waiting until this Thursday to confirm.<br><br>
I thought that I had really bad gas over the weekend, but after the 'really bad gas' got worse, and I could hardly stand up, I wound up in the ER. It wasn't gas, it was a muscle spasm.<br><br>
I received a preggo test in the ER bc the doctor wanted to do a CAT Scan to test for kidney stones. I declined the CAT scan, and got an ultrasound. Ultimately, it was a muscle spasm.<br><br>
Anywho, my AF is late (very late), I tested negative at the ER. I was really sad, but I still feel like I should wait until Thursday to retest. Meanwhile, my CM has changed to a more watery consistency, I am sooooo tired, and still feeling a little queasy in the afternoons since this past Friday.<br><br>
I plan to begin to chart as of Friday, if I get my confirmatory 'no.'<br><br>
At the same time, I feel kind of silly bc the ER , a hospital, gave me a negative on Sunday.<br><br>
Would you still test? Or should I just begin to chart & accept the negative hospital urine test?

often the hospital tests are not as sensitive as a hpt. When I started spotting with my chemical pregnancy i went in and got a negative urine test, but i told the dr. i had had 3 BFP at home so they did blood test. The hcg showed up on the bloodtest though. Just wait it out, it could have been too early for a bfp. Hope you are feeling better.

I'm a little confused. So, you think you O'd like 12 days ago, right? That would be 2 Thursday's ago.<br><br>
And then you had the negative test in the ER last Thursday? If that were the case, you were only 7 DPO...too early to show a BFP in MOST cases.<br><br>
But i'm a little confused as to how late you are? If you're only 12DPO, even if you have a shorter LP, how late exactly do you think you are?<br><br>
It sounds to me like the hospital test was too early...unless I'm confused with your dates.

With DD I had had faint positive tests at home and a negative in the doctors. Without charting, I didn't know when I ovulated, and I think the really sensitive tests picked it up early. I got a blood test when I was about 3 days late for AF, the day of the negative at the doctors, and it was positive. I would look for a sensitive test like the Dollar Tree or the First Response Early Result and take it!! You're only out a couple bucks, or a few more for the FRER. Best luck!

Hi MNHall, yes, I think that I O'd 12 days ago, but I got the negative test on Sunday, 2 days ago. I am hoping that that is still too early to get a positive, but maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

I was going to hold out until Thursday, but I might just go ahead & test tomorrow. I really hope so, but I am okay with waiting & charting for next cycle.

Oh duh....I guess I read to fast.....I missed where you said the ER was this weekend...I was thinking you said Thursday!<br><br>
Well, like the previous person mentioned, it very well could depend on the sensitivity of the test that the ER used. It could have been a test that needed too much HCG to test positive and at that point if you are preggo, it was just building up and not high enough yet.<br><br>
No AF means hope is not gone! BABY DUST!

Okay so my AF still has not shown up, and I was too anxious to wait until Thursday. I got a negative this evening <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">, so I will begin charting this week, or as soon as AF shows up.<br><br>
Thank you for all of your support.
