  • Hmm, it's hard to say. I know it's Much more likely to have a false negative than it is to have a false positive. Maybe you should get blood test done. My guess would be that you are pregnant. Congrats!!!

  • There are two possible answers:

    1. You had a chemical pregnancy, the embryo didn't implant into the uterus and you passed it naturally (take another home test and see if it still shows positive).

    2. Hospitals and doctors use the cheapest tests out there (they buy from the lowest bidder), so the test you bought and paid for is probably a lot more sensitive. Therefore you ARE pregnant, and you just don't have enough hormone for it to show up positive on their cheapo tests.
