Shame on me

Post by Hopeful in Indiana » Tue Aug 08, 2006 12:32 pm

I know by now that it is not a good idea to do a home pg test. I caved last night and did one :oops: It came up negative. I'm kind of glad I did it though so I can prepare myself for the serum test on Saturday. I have heard of false positives b/c of the HCG shots but, not so sure that a false negative can happen. I believe it b/c I never once had implantation spotting. I have no symptoms of being pregnant either.

False negatives happen ALL OF THE TIME!!! There are many women here who have had false negatives the day fo their betas. I didn;t get my first positive until 10dp3dt. And not even on the frist 2 I took. My positive was the third test fo the day (EPT).

Hang in there.

Hopeful - I had 2 negative hpts AFTER my official test date! The clinic test was faint so they made me wait another 5 days. I couldn't wait and did 2 home tests. Both negative (days 16 + 18). But they were wrong. It was positive and now I've got 9 and a bit weeks to go!

Keep your chin up and best of luck for test day!

Step away from the hpt! They are evil and no good can come from them! I had 2 negatives after my test date but a positive 4 days later. Hang in there and wait for the bloods. Everything crossed for you!
Keep up the PMA
Take care

OK, I know everyone told you HPTs are Evil, we yess they are without a doubt and to prove to you how evil they are i will share with you my story. I started the hpt on day 6 after transfer and ofcourse it was negative and then day 8, and day 10 all negative finally on day 11 when i went in for my beta it was a positive, and by the way the stupid HPT should have picked up my hormone level as i am pregnant with TRIPLETS!!!!!! my beta was at 336 and it still couldnt detect it, so please dont panic and put yourself under sooo much stress. I wish you goodluck and pray that you too will get a BFP soon.
With Gods Blessings BFP!
