  • Hasn't personally happened to me, but I know that it takes time for the hormones or whatever to be present in your urine, so if you take the test too early it could definitely say negitive when it is really positive. I would follow how your body feels over what the test says at least for a month.

  • It might have been too early for the test to tell. When I got pregnant with my daughter, I teek 2 tests and they came up positive, so I went to my doctors who took another test and it came up negative, and he sent me home and told me I was not pregnant. A day later I took a fourth test and it came up negative again. Finally, the gave me a blood test and it was positive that I was pregnant. Sometimes you have to wait for a little bit for the pregnancy hormones to go up to get an accurate pregnancy test read. Hope this helps :)

  • That happened to me when I got pregnant with my second. I tested right after I missed my period (I was anxious because we were TTC), but it came up negative. 2 weeks, later.. still no period, so I tested again and it was positive :)

  • I actually thought I could have been pregnant... I'm VERY regular. And I was about 9 or 10 days late. I was feeling very odd, and i thought I could be pregnant. I took a test twice, and it came up negative both times. Finally on the 10 or 11th day of being late, my period came. I was bummed :P But we're trying again this month, so hopefully I won't get "teased" again with a late period.
