  • with some people it can take up to mid-pregnancy to get a positive result with a HPT. i'd say head over to your doctors (or a local family planning clinic if you're short on insurance) to have a blood test done, those are always the best bet.

  • First off all if your LMP was the 18th of May you wouldnt be due on the 21st of Feb, just letting you know. It would be more like the 23rd or 24th so where ever you got that info is incorrect! When was the last time you tested? You are 8 days late now and I can tell you that I got a negative at 8 days late with my first two kids (finally got a positive at 11 days with my first and 12 days with my second) but this time around I got my positive the day after my missed period

  • I got negative results up until I was 8 weeks.

  • Here's the weird thing about those tests...when you pee on them, they pick up the hormone that's in your system when you're pregnant. Actually it's always there but it's elevated when you get preg. Anyway, you can get a false negative, but never a false positive. I would go see the doctor to be sure.
    Good luck!
