Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

I had a blood test done to see if I was pregnant 3 wks ago, my hCG level came back 1.5 but I still have not had a prd... am I pregnant?

I am now almost 4wks late but when I take a pee test they say i'm not pregnant and the blood test came back negative. So am I not pregnant? and if I'm not, could there be something else wrong????

Your body only produces hcg when you're pregnant. A low level could mean you are very early in your pregnancy, or it could mean you've had a miscarriage. I would wait a week or two to take another home pregnancy test. If you don't get your period in a week or two you should go back to your doctor to figure out what is going on.
