Pregnant .... Or Not?

So I have been keeping very close track with my testing and O times, and AF's schedule, ect for the last two months since coming off BC. No worries. We're semi-trying to plan to have our last little one.


So,... I'm incredibly impatient, and tested the day before. Negative.

So I wait, expecting to start.


Two days after I was suppose to start, nothing, test again.

Positive within seconds. ( digital at that!)

Shocked, I figure it's just chance.




*Please forgive all errors. Mama has been up for way too long without rest.*

Three tests later, all positive I decided to go to the health dept to test and see about insurance.

Their test comes up negative.

WTF?



it gets better.

In disbelief and slightly crushed, I tell my husband.

Whom promptly buys 3 more tests.


All of which are different brands.


All are positive.


So, what gives? I have never, ever gotten a false positive. Period. Each one has come with a baby attached.

I've also never gotten a negative once obtaining a positive.

Yeah, I'm guessing the health department is TOTALLY WRONG. No way you got 6 pos hpts and your not preggo. Their test either has a really low sensitivity, or it was a dud. Congrats

I would say positive and go back to that dr with all 6 tests lol. There is no way you had 6 different false positives.

you are pregnant....over the counter test can be pretty sensitive...like, easily measure under 25(forget the measurement), but doctors offices often won't measure a urine test till 50 or even 100!

That's an issue!!!

You know, it took until I hit 10 weeks along with my first to test positive with home tests.

It was 3 days before I missed with dd2.

Both were positives at the health dept with the first time round.
( and they pushed abortion and adoption like no tomorrow, and I was rather displeased about this. )



However -



Thanks for the congrats

They probably had a expired test orvsomething. U could take ur own test and test there. Why would they push adoption ams abortion so much?
Congrats and I hope you get your health care covered!

Sent from my Inspire. Hope everything makes sense!

I wonder if they would count that? That would be totally awesome if they would! I know the first time I was pregnant it wasn't unplanned between my significant other and myself, but we told family it was an 'oops' to avoid the fighting/ect. ( long story)

Either way, they told me all the home tests in the world won't get me on insurance.

Pregnancy tests are 99.9% accurate (or whatever percent they claim) against a false negative. There is no. Such. Thing. As a false positive. You are knocked up girl! You got a false negative at the health dept. I'd go in again in a day or two and request a repeat test.

Re: Pregnant .... Or Not?

So, retested this morning with a store brand test ( cause they were out of the brand normally purchased. I adore clear blue digital <3 ) and it says negative..... I just can't buy that, cause I don't even feel like I'm going to start.

I have been vomiting all morning, too. ( I had 4 months of hell with my first in this department.) So perhaps that's just what is impairing my pregnant/not pregnant judgement. To be fair though, store brands ( in my experience) tend to take longer to get a positive result also. So I am pretty sure I am.

Thanks ladies! Dh has already started talking to my belly!! He keeps telling it that it's better in my belly then out here, so stay in as long as possible! ( Lol, see my siggy. ) He's so cute
