How many negative tests did you get before you got a positive?

Just wondering because I'm six days late and already have received a negative pg test result and I'm not sure when I should take another.

  • With my daughter I was in the hospital a week before I found out with a home pregnancy test and they did a blood test and It came back Neg. The Drs said it was probably a mix up, but with this baby I took a pregnancy test and it was negative then a week and 1/2 later I took another and it was positive. So wait a little bit longer and then if it is still neg go to the Dr and make sure it is not something else like ectopic pregnancy or maybe just stress.

  • I bought a 3 pack of HPT. i took them all in the mornings.The first on i took it said negative. then like three days later i took another one and it came back positive. well means i had a third test and i wanted to make sure if i was or not so a few days later i took the last one and it came back negative. so then i finally broke down and went to the doctor to find out for sure and it was a positive. It was kinda funny.

  • With my 2nd pregnancy, I had a negetive test the day after AF was due, I waited a few days then re-tested and got a positive! Good luck to you.

  • I took the pg test at the doctors. Well...actually I peed in the cup and then had them test it at the lab. The thing is...I peed first thing in the morning(8 am) and my appointment was at 10am. Could it have been a false negative because I waited two hours to test it?
