  • yeah, some brands are easier to read than others; some are more sensitive to the "pregnancy hormone" than others; sometimes just testing a little later gives you a positive result because your body has more of the hormone than it did before.

  • Yes I was 4 months along and the test said negative. You could tell I was going to have a baby the dr. could feel the baby and see it on ultrasound I was 5 months when it said positive. I told the dr. he was crazy and so was his tests.

  • I'd test again with a sensitive test, and if it's positive I'm make a doctors appointment

  • I haven't, but when I was pregnant with my son I took a First Response 3 days before my period was due and it was negative. Then I took a cheap store brand test the day before my period was due and it was positive.
