  • yea it can be wrong, u have to wait until u really have to go so you can get as much of the pregnant hormones in your pee, then again you can have the symptoms and not be. Wanting to be pregnant can make the mind play tricks on the body.

  • What brand of test did you use? Some are more sensitive than others. Also, false negatives are a lot more common than false positives. You could still be pregnant! Go to the doctor and get a blood test. They are 100% percent accurate as far as I know!

  • Have you missed your period yet? Most pregnancy tests are the most accurate at least a week after your period was supposed to start.
    It's possible that you got a false negative, but it's also possible that your symptoms are due to the fact that you want to be pregnant, and you think you might be. The mind can have a lot of power over the body. I can't even tell you how many times I have suspected I was pregnant and got all the symptoms, only to find out that I wasn't. Once it was confirmed that I wasn't pregnant, the symptoms went away. I'm not trying to bring you down or anything. There's a good chance that you are pregnant, I just wanted to give a possible explanation for your symptoms.

  • It can be wrong. Sometimes urine samples don't have enough of those hormones in them to detect your pregnancy. Give it a week, then try again. Try to do it the first time you have to go the the bathroom in the morning. For whatever reason they say it is more accurate then. Otherwise.. you could just be stressing because you want to have a baby and sometimes your body can fool you.

  • My sister took a pg test 6 months ago and it was negative. She is now almost 8 months pregnant!! Nothing like an ultrasound or blood test to tell you what is really going on!
