The month started out normal, I got my usual premenstrual cravings and pimply chin which usually means my period will follow a day or two later. I am now just over a week late so I took an EPT test and the result was a very very faint negative line. I have been feeling nausious (usually more in the evening), I have been getting cramps (so I keep thinking I am getting my period), but I am also really tired and can't think clearly. I am planning on trying another home pregnancy test, I figured I would wait a week and try a different brand to see what the result will be. Has anyone else experienced this? Should I just go to the doctor and see what's up. My head keeps telling me I'm pregnant (which would be great) but I want to be sure.

I was wondering if the test I took gave a false negative. I've heard they are easier to get than false positives. Has anyone gotten false negative and been pregnant? I definately have early pregnancy symptoms including the ones listed before and now sore b___sts and mild constipation. Any ideas, suggestions, or support is greatly appreciated. My husband and I are excited about the possibilities and he even said that if this is not it, that we will start trying as soon as possible. He is the best.

Do you know at what level the hpt you took detects hcg? Go buy one that detects at 25, surprisingly enough the tests that you find for $1.00 detect the soonest. I used two of the $1.00 tests the day before I missed my period and both were BFP...Good luck.

as far as I know that EPT detects at 40. I guess it's not as sensitive as the ones you took. I take it your tests were accurate and you are preg (congrats!!!!!). I'll have to pick some up and try them. Thanks for the input.

when did you take your EPT test? if it's been a couple days, I'd take another because your hormones double every two days.... you are very patient to wait a week! (it's what they say to do to be sure, but most of us can't!). good luck!!


P.S. - April 25

yes, false negatives are very common, usually from testing too early or with a test that isn't sensitive. it took me 2 weeks to get my BFP.

I took it yesterday evening. I just bought a test from Dollar Tree (which I was told is more sensitive than EPT) and will try again tomorrow morning to see what happens. Thanks for all the responses - the only reason I've been patient till now is I didn't put 2 & 2 together until my neighbor suggested it. With my emotions right now - I can cry at a drop of a hat so I am starting to get anxious to find out the results.
