Question About Testing

Hi I am really confused right now. I took 2 hpt last week both came positive so I had made an appointment to see my dr. So he gave me a urine test there for comfirmation and it came back negative. Then he gave me an internal exam and I look the way I should when pregnant. So of course I went right to the store afterwards and got 2 more hpt`s and as I was peeing it turned positive. I know I am pregnant but I don`t understand why the doctors test came out negative it does not make sense to me.They are sending my sample to the lab and I will know by tommorrow afternoon what theres says. Im going in tommorrow morning also with my first morning pee and Im going to bring my other hpt and dip it in aswell to show them. Right now though I am so mixed up.Has this happend to anyone else?

Sometimes tests can have evaporation lines, where they look positive but are really negative. It is also possible that your test is more sensitive than the doctors test. To avoid confusion, I would go and get a 2 pack of clearblue digital tests. You can get them at walmart for about $10. They say "pregnant" or "not pregnant" so there is no guessing about faint lines. Take one at home to confirm to yourself, and then take the other one with you to the doctor's and dip it there. Also, the doctor could order a blood test which might be more accurate at this early stage. Good luck!

Thanks I think it is the case that my tests are more sensitive I did use a clearblue. So the first two that I used got progressively darker so I guess my imagination is just running wild with me now. thank you so much for answering.

You poor thing! I'd be so frustrated! That is very strange that an OTC test would be more sensitive/accurate than your doctors. Drawing blood is much more accurate plus the doctor's tests SHOULD pick up hCG levels at a much lower level than an OTC test would. By that I mean most OTC tests will pick up traces of hCG at say 50 while a doctor's test may detect much lower levels of it (and give you results sooner than an OTC). I would make sure, like Deb said, that you are not seeing evap lines. Do you read your hpt right away? Just don't let it sit around and try to read it, or view it in the garbage hours later b/c it will not be accurate. Best of luck and keep us posted!!!

No it shows up positive as soon as I am doing peeing on it. It appears within seconds.

It sounds like you're pregnant and the blood sample is wrong. I have to tell you, with this pregnancy, I took two HPT's and never even bothered with a blood test. They told me a blood test wasn't necessary if those test were popping up instantly positive. So, I think you're pregnant and the blood test must be incorrect if you took 4. The chances of all 4 showing positive and you not being pregnant are slim. Plus, I've heard that too much water can dilute results. I'm willing to bet you'll post tomorrow and it will be a positive result.

It was just another urine test that the doctor gave me. I have not had a bloodtest yet.

Eat some salty food tonight and don't have anything to drink in the evening to make your urine nice and concentrated tomorrow morning. Good luck tomorrow and keep us posted!

Oops. Sorry. I guess I saw doctor and a__sumed that he would have given you a blood test, not another urine test. Also, dollar store test work very well too. That's how I discovered I was pregnant this time.

Yeah I find the docotrs method ver strage considering he did an internal exam and said I look the way I should when being pregnant. He seems to think the urine sample is more of an indicator or something it see,s really strange to me anyways. I just felt so stupid when I was there I felt like I had to convince him that it is true but he kinda did the same thing when I was pregnant with my last little guy. but my urine sample turned up positive right away. I just got this weird idea earlier im postive that is probably not true but would the s_x of your baby have an impact on your hcg level. Sorry if sounds stupid but just curious.

 

Deb - June 13

I don't think the s_x of the baby impacts hcg levels. Right now your baby has no s_x organs and is smaller than a pea. Every pregnancy is different and in some preganancies, you produce hcg at a slower rate. Hang in there, I'm sure you will get your answers today! I'll be checking in on you!

Hello all thank you so much for all your help yesterday Im kind of mad right now considering the whole time my test was actually positive so I was worrying about nothing. I wish the doctor would have called to tell me. He told me first thing this morning when I went in with my first morning pee. He tested that one a well and it acme back positive right away. I feel relieved now. So my due date is actually the 19th of Febuary.
