False negative? Need experience/advice please!

Anyone have experience with false negatives? I'm expecting AF today, but I've had no signs whatsoever and usually it happens first thing in the morning. I took a hpt yesterday and got a BFN. I didn't have any cheap tests left so I took an OPK this morning and still nothing. I've had super sensitive smelling and I was really emotional and irritable yesterday (could be PMS I guess). What do you guys think? I happen to be going to the dr today for a physical so I'm going to see if they will do a blood test. Any comments/advice are appreciated!

I would say at first blush that you are just PMSing and AF is gonna rear her ugly head any minute now, especially with the bfn yesterday. BUT, weirder things have happened. A mama last month got AF, heavy bleeding, clots and everything and a couple days later discovered that she was actually PG. Our bodies are mysterious. Sorry I'm not much help.....just wanted to let ya know that I read your post and was thinking about you!

It could be your timing of O may just be later then usual as well and that's why you haven't had a BFP yet. It's never over til AF shows up. I tested a week past AF this past month and a very definate BFN, had no symtoms, then 2 weeks later had a little heartburn (which I never get unless I'm PG) and so woke up took a test and the test line was super dark and showed before even the control line did. So it happens, Good luck

So I just thought of another question.. If AF doesn't show today, should I take another test tomorrow?

Re: False negative? Need experience/advice please!

I wait a couple days ( if you can) since you are getting a blood test though that will tell you for sure if you are. So either way you shoud know in the next couple days I would think. TBH I don't know how long after the BFN I got that it would have went + cause apparantly I missed that. I have to have an ultrasound to find out how far along I even am. According to my LMP date I'd be about 8 weeks, but I'm gueesing its more like 6-7 wks
