Who all has had negative pregnancy tests but still been pregnant?

I am 4 days late and I feel pregnant, I feel much the same way that I was with my son. I'm still getting negative HPTs though.
Just wondering how many people here on cafe mom didn't get their BFPs until they were over 1 week late (or more!)?

  • I was about 2 weeks late. I wish I had known the week before, else I wouldn't have spent a whole day at Six Flags. LOL!

  • not myself, but my bff tested negative right up until the 6th month, the baby was kicking before her tests started showing up positive at home. (we were only 14 at the time) she didnt want to go to the doc unless she knew, she was showing at 4 months and still couldnt get a positive test, but we knew she was pregnant by then

  • Not me, but my best friend. She took so many of them.. different brands, few days later... finally she went to the doctor, and she had to have a blood test to confirm.

  • False negatives occur all the time. If you think you are, then go to the doctor and let them confirm it.

  • It's okay, ratchetlee! I didn't think it sounded rude, lol. I am going to go to the doctor if AF isn't here by Wednesday.

    I just wanted some anecdotes about people who went through the same thing I have and still ended up pregnant. <3

  • I personally haven't BUT two of my cousins have been preg and had negative pregnancy test. The one miscarried before they confirmed her pregnancy. :( The other, after 6 months and oh so many cancer screenings, finally got a blood test that confirmed her pregnancy.
