My partner and I have been trying to conceive with our second child since August. This month my period has been late and so I took a test last night. It was negitive, but could it be too early to show up positive? Thanks mums :)

  • Definitely stay positive early tests can be negative. I know heaps of women who got multiple negative results even though they were pregnant.
    also youtube channel
    has some great conception videos, they are made by a doctor and are pretty funny.

  • It could always take a bit slower to show up on the test.
    But always assume you are pregnant and look after yourself. Good luck!

  • Hope you have been successful.

  • Remember less stress is best when trying to conceive!

  • some tests show straight away, give it some time

  • Good luck with conceiving! It can be fun and frustrating at the same time! Just relax – stress is not good when trying!

  • I got a negative pregnancy test on my due date and even my blood test indicated that although I was pregnant, it probably wasn’t a ‘viable pregnancy’. Well, that unviable pregnancy is now sound asleep in the other room, so don’t lose hope. Wait a few days and try again. Good luck.

  • I’ve heard sex works well! ;) good luck, I think less stress and a healthy balanced diet with minimal alcohol is best!

  • there are some good comments here

  • yes it could be to early, maybe blood test or wait 2 days and re test

  • the tests are good these days try another one

  • You need at least four weeks from the time you tried to conceive for test results I believe there are also tests you can buy from the shops that show when you are ovulating and tell you when the right time to try is

  • It will happen when the time is right, it took us around 2 years before we managed number 2 child

  • First thing in the morning and about a week after missed period -just answered almost the same question lol! Good luck

  • It will happen when the time is right!
