  • Same thing happened to my sister. She got a positive at home, but when she took it at the doctors it was neg. She hadnt held her pee long enough to build up enough HCG. but she was preggo!

  • Oh yes there is hope. An HPT and the test you did in the doctor's office is testing the amount of HCG in your urine. These levels change depending on how long it has been since you went to the bathroom. HCG doubles every 2 days. The blood test you took with give you the yes or no but the true answer comes on the next blood test in two days. If the number is double or more then you are!!
