  • If your body has not got enough HGC in the urine, then a HPT may not catch it. So yes, you could test neg and be pregnant

  • With our first child it didnt' show up on a home test till I was almost 8 weeks along. I was taking one every other day. THe doc I was seeign at the time wouldn't see me till I tested positive at home (yeah, I switched docs real quick after realizing that wasn't normal lol).

    We have a family friend that is 8 months along and she still doesn't get a positive on a home test.

  • It's possible. The amount of hormones in your system is one of the ways that each pregnancy is different.

  • Well I got my "friend" but it only lasted 3 days (way shorter then normal) Won't the HGC be there

  • You can if your body is not producing enough pregnancy hormone yet. Read the paper that comes with the pregnancy test. It will tell you everything that you need to know.
