Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!

Sorry it took so long to respond! She said she took a test every single month and none came out positive until she got this last test. But I do remember seeing on that show "I didn't know I was pregnant" that some women took tests and they never came up positive. I wonder why that is? The doctor didn't really say but I don't know that she asked. She was pretty shaken up and didn't even know her due date when she left. She had to look back at her papers. She still hasn't been able to wrap her head around it! It's been a few days of panic and chaos. She got kind of overwhelmed with doctors, sonograms, birthing classes, choosing a hospital (she has 2 options), maternity leave and just trying to accept what's happening. I'm excited for her but feel so bad that she's so overwhelmed. It has been quite the week!!!

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!

I read an article about a woman who said all her tests came back negative. Including her blood test. She knew she was pregnant regardless of what the doctors were saying so behaved accordingly. No alcohol etc. They didn't believe her until they could see a baby on US.

I don't remember if the article mentioned why she had false negatives though.

Sometimes when you get farther along in the pregnancy, tests will come up negative. Maybe she accidentally missed a month so she was two months along when she tested the next month, and thus tested neg?

Well congrats to her and her hubby!

Re: She didn't know she was pregnant!!!

Most women make more of the growth hormone than they need when pregnant so it spills into their urine. If there's no excess, then it doesn't get into the urine. A friend of mine (and my sister's sister in law - long story) was a good 5 months along before enough of the hormone was in her urine for the pee stick to read positive. She had a full on showing baby belly and the test was negative. Not sure if the same is true of blood tests, hers came back positive.
