Is It Possible? Pregnancy Addiction Due August 10; TTC since Mar 2013; 7 kids; Wyoming 12152 posts

Is it possible to be pregnant, and have symptoms, but get a negative on a pregnancy test? I have been having a few symptoms that I may be pregnant, I have not had a period for 26 months since when I last got pregnant with my son and breastfeeding him for 17 months. I took a test, and its very much negative, so I am sure I am not, but just curious if I could still be since I have a few odd symptoms that I only got while pregnant before.

It is possible.

I took a test a few days after my missed period and it was negative. Could have been a fluke, I guess. Then i took two tests two weeks later and they were dark positives.
It's totally possible.

Anything is possible, but it's incredibly unlikely.

I didn't show up. Not even on blood tests. it's possible.

You HAVE to have hcg in your blood if you are pregnant. If it didn't show up on a blood test, it was just too early.

I didn't show up at 15 weeks. That's the only time I got a blood test. The same day, I had to get an ultrasound to check for "pain" down there, since I didn't show up on the home test, or the blood test.

Wow, that's crazy. Maybe a lab mix-up?

Possibly. I also didn't show up on the pee test at the hospital when I was 12 weeks. I wasn't trying to make this thread about me, lol.

It's definitely possible. I was nauseous all day long and throwing up everything, but never got a positive home test. Went to the doctor and had a blood test done and it came back negative as well. So it's possible.

Yup, it's possible. My aunt never gets positive tests unless they are blood tests that her doctor gives her. She's odd, lol.

That would likely have been a lab mix up. At 15 weeks you'd have extremely high hcg.

There's an enzyme that maybe 2% of the population secrets that neutralizes hcg in the urine. So that can possibly be explained.
