How many moms got a negative on a home pregnancy test and were really pregnant?

Hey moms just wondering if any of you took a home pregnancy test and got a negative on it but then found out you were really pregnant. If your one of them may i ask how many tests did you take and did you get the same results? Share your story with me. How many weeks were you when you found out you had a little angel inside you? Did you knew you were pregnant even though the test said negative and what did you do?I'm just curious.

Thank you! :)

I've heard of a few ladies that took several weeks to get a positive. My BFF took 3 weeks past her missed period to get the positive.

I got negative tests for a week with my second baby. I was pretty sure I was pregnant by the end of the week because I was so late and my boobs hurt super bad and it hurt to have anything push on my lower belly. I was taking dollar store tests which used to work great. At the end of the week 2 of them turned positive after an hour so I took a different kind of test and got an instant positive.

 I have, but I tested too early.  I can only test on the day I expect my period..anything earlier, I generally get a BFN

im currently in this situation now but I probably took them too early. my period is for sure late and im 4 sure having pregnancy symptoms, I got tired of wasting money on tests for them to say negative all the time so I decided to order some cheap ones online and now im waiting 4 them 2 come in the mail 2 test again.

Yup!

With DD1 my LMP was June 1. When the 29th rolled around and AF didn't show (I had on the cloc, to the hour periods) I went and tested right away. Nothing. Tested 3-4 more times that week, nothing.  Tested several more times the next week, nothing. July 16 I finally went to the doc she did a pee test, negative, so she gave me pills, said "take these every day for a week and your period will show up on/right after the last day". Took the pills every day, as directed, still nothing, so on the 24th I was with a friend at the mall and realized still no AF and I was already done with the pills the day before, so I bought another test and BAM, BFP. Tested again a few hours later, another BFP.  Went to the doc a few days later and she set up u/s which I did in early-mid Aug and I was 10wks along (so almost 8wks preg when I got my BFP).  


With DD3 I didn't test till later on (was in denial/thought there was an issue with my BC) and I got a BFP but it was so faint I tossed the test cause I didn't see it. I went back a min or 2 later and looked again and just barely saw the line. Went for a u/s a week later and was 10wks (so I got the very faint BFP at 9wks preg).

Whats crazy is we had been trying to conceive for awhile and everytime I overanalyzed every symptom and thought I was pregnant I would get a couple negative test in a row then sure enough my period would start (late) everytime.

Finally, I decided to give up on trying to get pregnant and decided I would start taking birth control pills to try and regulate my period because they had been acting funny so I thought maybe this had been the reason I couldn't get pregnant. I called in the prescription to the pharmacy but before I could go pick them up me and dh got in a huge argument and he stormed out of the house and took my car instead of his. I don't know if it was the fight or not but I went in the bathroom and was crying and noticed there was a pregnancy test sitting in the cabinet so I decided to take it thinking how ironic it would be if I was pregnant after he just pissed me off and I told him I should leave him lol (not that serious of a fight I admit I get petty when I'm mad)

sure enough I took the pregnancy test 5 days before my missed period and the second line was light but it was very much there! I texted dh and told him that he was lucky that he had trapped me lmao and he was like what do you mean? I didn't respond. He came back home shortly after and I showed him the positive test. He had the biggest grin on his face, he hugged me and was like we finally did it we're pregnant......forgot all about the argument lmao

I don't test positive right away. This baby it took 5-6 weeks before I was able to get a positive test. The others I took were negative even though I knew I was pregnant.

I took a test everyday for 2 weeks and nothing. I knew i was pregnant, so the doctor agreed to a blood test. The day that i got my results, i also got my + on a home test also.
