BFN 4 days before AF is due....

Took the early detection test this morning. I'm due Fri or Sat. Negative. Should I still have hope? Could there still be a chance that my body isn't producing enough hcg? Been cramping for a week straight but no "implantation bleeding."
Bummed out. Again. This happen to ANYONE and they wound up being pregg?

  • I took the first responce test 4 or 5 days before my missed period and it said negative...but it turns out I WAS pregnant. :) my daughter is three weeks old now. GOOD LUCK!

  • It would be the new embryo that would be making hcg, not your own body. If it's not there, you don't have an embryo creating it. Or, it's just not making enough yet. Either way, don't torture yourself with early testing. Wait until you're late, then test. Early negatives do nothing but upset you, right?

  • I don't get a positive I can really see until about a week after I am due.

  • I have never gotten a positive at 4 days before. The earliest I've ever had a BFP is 2 days before. If it helps...2 of my girls I got negatives with a couple days before but I knew I was. Just give it a couple more days and test again if you feel like you are.
