Has anyone not gotten a positive pregnancy test until they were a little further along than a few days late for their period?

I'm about 4 days late for my period and I took a pergnancy test and it said negative. My last period was on Sep. 3rd. I was just curios if anyone else tested after they missed thier period and it was negative, but later came up postive. I have never been late or irregular.

  • I tested negative with both my boys , finally tested pos when I was about 2 1/2 mths preggers! Low hormone levels or something like that. Surefire way to find out is with a blood test.
