Frustrating Pregnancy Test Question

Posted by   + Show Post

Ok so this is an irritation for me since it should be a no brainer but it turns out it isn't as simple as i used to think.  So here goes.

When i tested for my first son the home test showed very VERY fast and clear that it was positive, two very dark lines for pregnant, yet when i had my doc do the blood test it showed negative and i didn't show positive until almost 3 weeks later on my blood test.

When i tested with my younger son the test showed negative for over an hour before a faint line showed for positive, and when i say faint i mean so faint it was almost invisible. So i went to my doc and she did the blood test and it was positive, so yay preggers.

So here's my problem. I tested two mornings ago since i've been feeling nauseated and just blah lately and threw up the other night *i NEVER throw up when not preg*  but it came up negative so i tossed it in the trash. The trash can knocked over earlier and as i was picking it up i noticed a very faint positive line now on the test.  At first i thought, nah, it's been too long to be accurate *the directions always say not to check after certain hours etc*  yet when i looked it up online all the info is conflicting. Some info says no way, don't trust it and other info says it will never show a positive line if there's no preg hormones to make it react. 

Anyone have any experience with this???

A line is a line.  It won't show up if there's no hcg in your system.  And even if there is, sometimes you can get a faulty test, or there's too little to show.  I had a friend a while back who tested negative at 9 months lol   Her body broke down the hormone as fast as she was producing it.

I would at the very least get another test, maybe a different brand or go to the doctor and get a pregnancy test.

If it is positive - congratualations.

Prob negative.

Your test was unlikely a false negative and it's more likely you didn't have enough hcg for that particular test. In this case, with tubes tied and a negative test, it's probably negative.

 That happened with my first pregnancy. I took a test at my sister's house and it said negative. The next morning she called and said it was positive. Sure enough, lol.
