Deflated, that's how I feel right now. I don't understand. I took a digital test this morning and it said Not Pregnant.  :( I texted my IM the results.  I'm kinda at a loss right now. I have not had time to process this at all. It's only been like 15 minutes since I tested. I'm all hot and flustered feeling.  I wonder if the test can possibly be wrong. What if the pee was not good anymore (I had saved some from 7:30am so I could run to the store at get a new test ~ 90 minutes)  Should I try again in the morning? It's 17dpo today. That's too long to not test positive isn't it?  Oh, my heart is breaking for my IP's. I'm sorry. I'm sorry we got our hopes up only to have things come crashing down so quickly.   I'm sorry.

edit: I spoke with my IF and he would like to try some more of the 2 line tests since they pick up a lower HCG. It's not uncommon for me to be a low HCG producer. I also called my care provider and asked about getting a  Beta Test done. I have had 2 miscarriages before. Not unusual since 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and I have been pregnant 10 times, so 2 in 10 is better then average.  I hate not knowing. This sucks.

I'm sure it was a dud or just not sensitive enough and who knows maybe letting the pee sit does something.  It is so much harder since it is more than you riding on these results.  I think a blood test is a good plan at this point.  Some women never turn any kind of home pee test positive. I am rooting for you.

My friend who is a L&D nurse said that you can't save urine unless you put it in the fridge  to keep it cold. She also said after an hour the HCG in it starts to break down. So make sure you test the urine right away or put it in the fridge.

I think a beta is a great idea!! Let us know how it goes!

Thank you so much for your comment. I'm praying that's what the problem was.
