  • the only problem with that is that i didnt have a period, i miscarried july 16th and i never had a period between the miscarriage and a positive test. i thought i ovulated aug 23rd but the dates dont match when i tried to figure them out, i got a positive test about a week after i thought i ovulated but the more i read that isnt possible. thats why i am confused and i am thinking my edd is off i am thinking i am due at the end of this month not the middle of may. i am already dialated and they have stopped labor twice

  • It has nothing to do with how long you have been pregnant, and everything to do with the level of hormones in your urine at the time that you test. I know a girl who never got a positive test, even at 4 months pregnant. But sure enough the blood tests came back positive.
