  • I know that this is possible. It could just be that your HCG levels aren't high enough yet for the home test to register. A Blood test is always the best way to go, when you are unsure. Keep those fingers crossed!! And, I have heard of people having like 3 neg at home tests and a pos. blood.

  • My Mom did!! She wasn't getting her period but her hpt's kept coming up negative. The Dr. kept telling her that she was just missing her period because she was underweight (4' 11" and 85 lbs.). FINALLY she actually FELT the baby (my sister) move and insisted that the Dr. give her a blood test. She told them that she was either pregnant or an alien was in there. LOL!! Sure enough, she was almost 5 months pregnant!!

  • It is very possible to get a positive blood test and a negative home test. Home tests do not detect levels as well as blood test, so it is very possible. Good luck.
