pregnancy tests

I'm only a day late for my period, but I'm still getting a negative on preg tests (so I'm assuming I'm not preggers). How late coule I possibly get a positive? The tests that I use are hospital grade, measuring hCG of 25 or more. We weren't planning on another baby yet, but we were less than careful while I was ovulating, and now I'm kind of hoping we are:)

  • My daughter didn't show up until I was a month late even on those 2 week early tests. I wasn't ready for my son when he came but we have managed on the tighter budget

  • I didn't use a pregnancy test until I was at least one week late on my period because my periods come a few days later or earlier.

  • If you have other children then when did they show up on tests? That is a better indicator then what any woman on here tells you. Personally both mine showed up 2 days BEFORE my missed period with big old fat positive tests.

  • I was over a week late before getting a positive with both pregnancies; DD 1 I was 8 weeks pregnant before I got a positive, this pregnancy I was 5 weeks pregnant.

  • i have really irregular periods and i was on the pill so it was common for me to miss 2 or 3 months i took 3 tests in the space of 3 months and i assumed i wasn't pregnant because all of them were negative. month 4 i decided i really need to get it checked out. low & behold i was 3.5 months pregnant. it took a blood test to get a positive. so i really no longer trust pregnancy tests lol
