False Negative?

Just wondering if anyone ever had a false negative pregnancy test. I am a week late and took a test 2 days ago and it was negative. I don't want a baby right now (but wouldnt be mad if I was) so just was curious if anyone had any stories of their own that were result of a false negative....Thanks!!

Also, with my first I got a positive the day I was supposed to start so I doubt I am, just curious

i know its possible.

I've been a baby-wearing, co-sleeping, no CIO, breastfeeding, baby signing, vaxing mama for the past year and I wouldn't do it any other way!

Its possible, if you are a little earlier then you thought your hcg levels may not be high enough to trigger a positive on a home test.
