Multiple Defective Tests???

Ok, so I have every pregnancy symptom in the book...nausea, exhaustion, hormonal, food cravings, etc...PLUS I missed AF last month (just weaned DD2, so wasn't too concerned until the symptoms started), but I have now taken FOUR tests and they are all negative! 2 $ store tests, 1 Equate, and 1 CBE--all negative. WHAT IS GOING ON HERE???

(Note: I am hypothyroid, but just had levels checked in the fall and all was ok. We are not TTC right now--were planning to in May or June--just wasn't sure where else to post...)

I'd ask for a blood draw. There are plenty of stories out there of women who have pregnancies that never register on an HPT!

I wouldn't say defective tests. It's possible you're just not that far along yet. Also, there are many women who just don't get positive HPTs. I second the blood draw. Good Luck!!!

Sounds good. I had early HPT +s with both DDs, but who knows? I wasn't nauseous with them either. Eek!

Re: Multiple Defective Tests???

well not trying to be the debbie downer but for the past 6 months from the time I ovulate till I get AF I have EVERY pregnancy symptom.... I am so nauseated I vomit, I am exhausted, I breakout like a teenage girl, I am emotional and cranky..... and I have mild cramping the entire two weeks..... I honestly thought I was pregnant every month for several months until I just calmed down and realized it was my hormones regulating from the breastfeeding...... my hormones have finally started to get normal again this past month but for awhile I was getting so annoyed and took so many pregnancy test and they were all negative.

ALTHOUGH i will say I really hope for your sake that maybe you are pregnant!!
