Trying to conceive: One positive HPT, four negative

Hey all, 

I am 20 years old (21 in one month) and my boyfriend of two years (he's 23) and I have been trying to conceive for about 5 months now. This month my "period" came, only it wasn't really a period. I spotted two days, bled two days, spotted two more days, nothing for a day, and spotted some more for a day and a half. Wednesday (1/30/13) I took a HPT, and it came back positive. I took one on Thursday night (different brand) and another the next morning and they were both BFN :( Today (2/1/13) I took two more (of the same brand that I got the positive) and were also negative. I am so confused and frustrated. I'm experiencing symptoms such as nausea, extreme fatigue, hightened sense of smell, and SERIOUS bloating. That spotting ended less than a week ago. I would love any advice (try not to be too harsh if ya can :P)


Thanks in advance!

Are you testing in the morning? It doesn't sound to be like you are. Sorry.

You need to test with the first mornings urine. If its still neg then you probably are not. Yyou could also go get a blood test from your ob. Do you have any medical conditions that would make it difficult for you to conceive?

You need to test only with first morning urine- meaning don't pee at all during the night, then take your test when you pee the first time. 

Unfortunately, symptoms really don't mean anything.

Hmmm if one was positive maybe you are or maybe you just don't have enough hormone in your system right now...I'm not sure.   I would do what the other posters said though.

I know it is possible to bleed some and be pregnant but to spot then bleed then spot?? hmm idk when I found out I was preg. in dec. i had super super light spotting just when I wiped for 2 days. then I tested pos. a couple days later. It doesn't sound like you are to me. Its another month, keep on trying! I also know when I was ttc I thought I had every symptom in the book. (I ended up miscarrying my last preg. so I'm not preggo right now) :(
