I'm 2 days late on AF but still negative HPT. Should I go get a blood test are they more accurate? *if* I am pregnant I'd be 5 weeks tomorrow? Idk I just want a BFP or AF to come so I can try again :( thanks ladies!

Yes, blood tests are more accurate. A friend of mine's mother has 4 kids (3 pregnancies since 1 pregnancy was twins) and each time she never once got a positive on a HPT, only through blood test...even with her twins. So it's worth a shot.

sucks to wait but i've been 10 days late for AF and still wasnt pregnant... try waiting till you're like a week late to test again then if AF doesn't show after 10 days late and no BFP i'd go to the dr. my last period was sept 20th, i didnt get a BFP will nov 18th... i bled funny inbetween though so i found out i miscarried and then got preggo

Depends, I learned from the ladies on here that there are two types of blood tests and the nurse that gave me my results told me the one that only is yes or no is almost as effective as a HPT. The one that measures how much is in you is better, but she said I need to request that.

Definitely more accurate. With my oldest, I NEVER got a positive HPT. I was negative on a urine test the day before my C-Section. That's pretty rare, but it isn't uncommon for a blood test to detect pregnancy before a urine test will.
