It has been 13 days past my due period date and I have lots of pregnancy symptoms. I have vomited a few times, spotted, tingling nipples, abdominal cramps, starving all the┬átime and soooo tired. Lots of negative HPT later and one negative blood test. I’m so confused. Has anyone ever had a negative blood test for pregnancy that has been wrong? I’m having another test tomorrow and the Dr said if I don’t have period in a week then we will do a scan. I have very low progesterone levels which are getting checked too. Can that maybe throw out the hormones needed for the test to be positive? With my son I tested positive 10 days after period due. Driving myself nuts wondering!

  • I’ve been there with the false negatives on the pee sticks, but when they did the blood test it came up positive. I think go with your gut, something is obviously up with your body. Did they check iron levels too?

  • My friend had this and they were pregnant- good luck

  • They will end up doing an ultrasound to see if there is a heart beat in there. It’s just playing tricks on you I think

  • ive had one false before but 10 days later repeated the test and it was positive

  • It is very much possible to have false negatives. An ultrasound will usually tell you if there is a heartbeat in there!

  • there are some good comments here

  • i hope you got your answer :)

  • I hope you get some better answers soon.

  • Hope that you find something out soon

  • My blood test was negative, but I was pregnant with my first. Because my hormone levels were very low it didn’t show up on the blood test and it was a false negative. They did an ultrasound and there was a baby with a heart beat, it wasn’t until about 8 weeks that the blood test was positive.

  • Hi ladies. Thought i would update you. Had a doc app today. Still no period and am due again today or tomorrow. If it doesn’t come I have a scan booked for the end of the week. Got my progesterone tested again and I was only 1 which is extremely low. She refered me to they gyno that I dealt with before to sort my progesterone levels out. Not sure what to think anymore. Still have pregnancy symptoms so just weird. My body is telling me one thing and tests are saying another. Hopefully I will get my period soon or the scans will reveal something. Thanks for all your advice. .

  • I know its hard but try not to worry until you know you have something to worry about.
    You are doing the right thing. you are having your tests and im sure you will have some answers soon.

    Good luck.

  • during my pregnancy i had 6 blood and 11 urine tests by various doctors that all showed negative – it took until week 36 for my Noodle to stop hiding

  • you must be so stressed out at the moment. I think your doctor gave you the right advise though. Wait for another week and test again. Try not to think about it now. Hope you feel better soon :(

  • with my daughter i did not turn a urine or blood test positive for nearly months but I knew I was pregnant the dr did a ultrasound and found a baby. my body did not produce enough of the pregnancy hormone so i needed to have needles daily.
