How frequently are home pregnancy tests wrong, really? I mean, just because I got a blood test doesn't mean I'm pregnant. Right?

AHhhhhh! This is so freaking irritating. I am not in a position to have another baby. I am two months late, my boobies are huge, my...okay that part is TMI...I cried at a freaking PBS show, then Criminal minds, then Message in a Bottle, then a coke commercial, all in a three hour span! But I'm not pregnant. I know I'm not pregnant. Right?
My primary physician sent me for lab tests today because he thinks the symptoms are just too in line...and I dunno how I feel now. Have you ever had a negative home test only to find out youre pregnant? Have you ever not wanted to be pregnant? Jesus Christ why am I drinking this wine?

  • I was doing everything I could to not get pregnant again (condoms every time and the pill). I did not want another baby for another few years..Wellll here I am with a 13 month old and 6 months pregnant. I was mad at first but now I know he is coming for a reason. If the pill and condoms both failed, it must have been meant to be!

    Sometimes things happen that we think aren't what we want but they turn out perfect.

  • you have no idea how many ppl read the test wrong or gets wrong answer, for a fact if you are stressing out that does fold your period. i was one month late, already planning names cause i thought i was preggo, i had all the symptoms i had with my son, truned out be my stress was holding back my period. and i think you should cool down with the wine until you know for a fact if your pregnant or not, next time hunny use protaction or get on birth control. so you dont have to go through this scares.

  • Oooo guess I should have mentioned that I am on birth control, haha! I got pregnant with my son on birth control, so being back on a pill and no longer on an IUD, then suddenly getting pregnancy, scary! Thanks for the advice, ladies :-)
