  • I would wait until you are a week late, then test again. If you get another negative, you can always go to your doctor's office or women's clinic and get a blood test done to be absolutely positive.

  • You could be late for all kinds of other reasons. I read some time ago that you shouldn't even think you might be pregnant until you're at least 10 days late.

  • you should always wait at least 3 days before testing again. It says that somewhere (might be in What To Expect...) . I never test till I'm at least a week late. 1 week makes a big difference in hormone levels.
