call your doctor and schedule a blood test. those are more reliable than urine. my urine test at the dr.'s office came back negative, but the blood test came back positive.

Well  lemme put it like this; i wasnt trying to get pregnant with my first but i had symptoms too and when i went to take a home pregnancy test they were all negative, i went into the doctor a couple days later due to pain during sex and they told me i was pregnant, and i was 5 weeks pregnant. they said my hormones are low enough for a home pregnancy test to not detect it but they could. and i used clearblue and firstresponse. so going to the doctor would be the nest thing and spo ur prolly pregnant and hav the same problem i do(:

My husband and I tried for 18 months to get pregnant and I had pregnancy symptoms every month. Your brain can trick your body into having those symptoms if you are "willing" yourself to get pregnant. Also early pregnancy symptoms are very similar to symptoms you have right before you start your period so when trying to conceive, and even when you aren't, you can mistake the two. Go to the doctor and get a blood test because HCG shows in the blood before urine.

Its a possibility that you could be pregnant, and maybe the HCg hormone that the pregnancy tests pick up just isnt strong enough for the ept to pick up. Have you even missed your period yet? If so, I would wait about a week or 2 after if it still hasnt started. Alot of pregnancy tests say they will pick up the pregnancy hormone 5 days before the missed period but that is completely false, it only does that for about 5% of women lol. Alot of times the pregnancy hormone isnt high enough until atleast a week after missing your period.

When I was trying to get pregnant I wanted it so bad that I had literally fooled my body into thinking I was. I had every symptom you could imagine from sore boobs to morning sickness; and my period was late but test after test came back negative. I'm not saying this is what is happening to you but it could be a possibility. If you don't get your period soon you should see a doctor.( P.S. I did all that worrying and obsessing when I finally did get pregnant I had little to no symptoms at all, isn't that ironic? I didn't even get morning sickness)

it may just be too early for the at-home tests. so schedule an appt with ur doctor and get some bloodwork done. or u might just be stressed or expecting ur period?? that happened to me. just be patient and wait for the blood results. good luck!!
