  • your period could just be running late or it could a false negative. both have happened to me. my advice would be if u dnt get ur within the next week, take another test. good luck

  • When did you test (time of day)? Did you use your 1st pee in the morning? Did you pee on the stick or dip it into a cup of pee? You could have had a false negative. That can happen if your urine is dilute or not enough pee gets on the stick. You could be late or you could be pregnant or you could be having some sort of a problem.

    I'd test again with1st morning urine and dip the stick. You did mean that your period was due a week ago and you're having cramps. If you test negative again, I'd call your doctor and see what they say.

  • Honestly cramping is a good sign, it can mean your baby is getting stuck for the 9month adventure. I've had about 3 test come out neg and totally rattled my brain and cried with my dh because we werent getting prego. 2 Days later a test came out possitive!! It may just be that you dont have enough hormones for a positive test right now

  • Pregnancy cramps vary. I don't remember having any. I do remember feeling 'different' with DD but not with my sons.

  • I wanted a baby so bad before that it would never happen. I always made myself late with my period. Finally it happened and that was because I didn't think about it at all. I would not stress so much, and just let things flow.
