Read False Negatives

Last week I posted a post here because I was confused about a negative blood test. I took 8 (yes 8) HPT's and they were all postive, but then when I went to get the blood, it came out neg.....WRONG....found out today (although I already knew...feel like I want to sleep a year straight) that I in fact am. I dont know why HPT tests would be more sensitive then a qualitive blood test, but it was! Just thought that may give some of you hope. :)

if you used a sensitive test like first response which measures 25 hcg, it would be positive if you took a qualitative bloodtest and it was neg. Every lab has its own # for what is considered + and - which may be higher than 25 in some labs.

I read on a website that First Response reads positive as 100 hcg??

I have the First Response (results 5 days sooner). I took one Sat June 18th, hoping to find out for father's day. Negative. Well I was suppose to start yesterday. Took it first thing this morning....NEGATIVE. I have never been late. With my son I tested a week after I was supoose to start. But I thought you were suppose to find out soon with these tests? Can I be getting false negatives? or just not being patient enough (I have no patience)?
