h__lo, I did a fresponse preg test last night that came out a faint possitive and today did another one to make sure and it came out neg. Im going to wait untill the morning to use my morning urine as ive heard that you have more hcg first thing. Has anyone else ever taken a test got a faint possitive then a neg and got a possitive in the morning? ive posted a post on the general page but then found this page so thought i would get more advice on this part. hope you can help. x

In early pregnancy it's pretty common to test neg without using fmu. It has the highest concentration of hcg, and I would consider it more accurate than a mid day diluted urine sample.

I took FR test yesturday mid afternoon and got a faint positive and took this morning and today and got negative?? So annoying. My "P" is due in 2 days now. I hope we are both in fact preggo! Keep me posted and i'll do same...it would be interesting to know if FR is accurate w/ positives. from other readings on this site i feel worried that i am not now...but keep hopes up. GOODLUCK!

lalya | Date: May 5, 2005, 11:53 Answer: hi, just an update. i rang the help line number on the first response preg test leaflet and i explained that i had had a faint pos and a neg. she said that it depends on when you urinate (altho i did hold my urine for over an hour) and that a possitive test even tho i got a neg never comes up if you arent actually pregnant.!!!! i still dnt kno weather she was just saying that as obviously they cant put down there product!! im really confused now!!!!!!!

Just retest in the morning. Or if you want to do it later today, you're supposed to hold your urine for 3-4 hours (not just 1!).

Lol..exact same situation. I took a F.R. last Monday, 1 day before period was due and it had a very faint positive that was confirmed by 2 other people & then disappeared. Then, tested 3 more times, (period now 9 days late) and all negative- even another First Response. I also had cramping for 3 days last week, but period has never come. I don't go to the doctor until the 13th, so sorry to say that I'm not sure of the outcome yet. I did the second test (first respone) with first morning urine & it was still negative.

I hope we are too, Lalya. Day 10, so far no sign of period in sight. I sleep a lot anyway, so I can't tell if that's a symptom or not...lol. However, as far as the urinating a lot goes - that's definately me. Seems like every 5 minutes. I have been having some pretty bad headaches, too, which is something that I experienced in previous pregnancies, and gas out the a$$....literally (:

lol, like your expression! im actually the other end i am burping alot and hiccuping to! i have a 6 year old son and cant actually remember alot of my symptoms that i had. i have been getting bad headachs to my nose is bunged up to but i think thats due to getting a cold. good luck. r u from uk?

 

superbadchick - May 6

No, I'm in the states, but I see a lot of people are from the UK and Australia and places like that. When is your AF due Lalya?

 

lalya - May 7

hello, my af was due on friday still no sign yet!!! ive got a big rash come up on my face wondering if it would have anything to do with hormones if i am (hopefully pregnant)!! my nipples have started to hurt today to and feel bloated with these odd cramping feelings shooting up near my belly b___ton! how are you getting on? im hoping my signs arent anything to do with af! ive been regular 28 day cycle for 3 months now and usuall the day before i come on i get a brown stain when i wipe then the next day i come on, but this month, nothing!!! time will tell.

HI Layla & superbadchick!! It' me again. I have taken 2 more FR hpt and both neg, went to my doc and neg but he said it's too early to tell for alot of woman. my period was also due Friday (yesturday) and nothing. when i woke up yesturday morning I thought i was gonna get it (had some cramps) but nothing. maybe today. If I don't get it by Wednesday my dr gave me a requisition to get a blood test done so hopefully that'll tell. I just wanted to say don't give up hope cause my dr says he sees alot of woman who have no sign of the hormone on tests until 1-2 weeks after af is due...so chin up! GOODLUCK to you both and keep posting. (tamara from calagary alberta canada)

PS: i am now getting some other symptoms too...this morning i awoke at 4am and thought i was gonna throw my cookies but just felt nauseated very bad for about an hour. (keep fingers crossed this is a good sign) CHEERS!

 

lalya - May 7

hi tamara, well good luck for you i hope that you dont come on! we were both due for af at the same time! have you had a faint possitive test yet? i got a faint possitive the first one i did then 2 neg! the faint pos is still pink! so annoying isnt it! good luck for you. i am from the u.k havent been to the doctors yet i am going to wait and see if i come on and if not then do another test tuesday otherwise off to the doctors for me!!

 

lalya - May 7

sorry just read that you did get a faint possitive! sorry !!!!

 

superbadchick - May 7

Well, day 11 and still no sign of AF. I'm through with hpt's though- I've spent so much money on them in the last 2 weeks the people at walmart probably think I'm crazy. Hopefully at my appt on Friday I will know something more. One thing that is weird though - I took a 3 hour nap yesterday, woke up for about 2 hours, and then went back to sleep with no problem for the rest of the night. So I guess that whole exhaustion thing is kicking in- or maybe I'm exhausted from all this waiting to find out (:
