Frustrating Pregnancy Test Question
by Arroree
November 10, 2012 at 11:43 PM

Ok so this is an irritation for me since it should be a no brainer but it turns out it isn't as simple as i used to think.  So here goes.

When i tested for my first son the home test showed very VERY fast and clear that it was positive, two very dark lines for pregnant, yet when i had my doc do the blood test it showed negative and i didn't show positive until almost 3 weeks later on my blood test.

When i tested with my younger son the test showed negative for over an hour before a faint line showed for positive, and when i say faint i mean so faint it was almost invisible. So i went to my doc and she did the blood test and it was positive, so yay preggers.

So here's my problem. I tested two mornings ago since i've been feeling nauseated and just blah lately and threw up the other night *i NEVER throw up when not preg*  but it came up negative so i tossed it in the trash. The trash can knocked over earlier and as i was picking it up i noticed a very faint positive line now on the test.  At first i thought, nah, it's been too long to be accurate *the directions always say not to check after certain hours etc*  yet when i looked it up online all the info is conflicting. Some info says no way, don't trust it and other info says it will never show a positive line if there's no preg hormones to make it react. 

Anyone have any experience with this???

    Quoting Arroree:

    Thanks everyone. I'm pretty sure it was likely an evap line but we'll find out soon enough *after hubs gets off work lol*  Strangely he's actually hoping it's positive, the guy who always swore he only wanted 2 kids, go figure.

    The retest came out negative and then my period finally started but i'm still having lovely preggo symptoms, so either i'm preg *i had a period the first 4 months of my last preg* or i'm having a false preg. Either way i'm just annoyed LOL.  My hormones have been all out of whack since i had my younger boy so i'm guessing it's just a false preg.

    Quoting punky3175:

    HEY! I'm carrying his he's such a man whore!

    *shrugs* I'd much rather share a baby daddy with you than some other people.

    Quoting NWP:

    Bahahahhaaaaa! Apparently, when I questioned Bill O'Reilly as my baby daddy, the truth came out...My 46 year old body is carrying Fabio's child. LOL

    Quoting Woodbabe:

    I never ever tested positive on a pee test with either pregnancy! 

    *shify eyes*

    Since it's CM I feel obligated to refer your pregnancy question to this expert site:
