  • I had a blood test with my last very early on in my pregnancy as I was hospitalized and we happened to be ttc. It came back negative. My husband and I were convinced I was pregnant, very next day I used a home pregnancy test and it came back with a very obvious positive. Sure enough I was pregnant. Elizabeth
  • My sister kept getting negatives and even blood tests were coming back negative till they finally gave her ultrasound turn out she was 5 months along!!!! Bec
  • Yes all 3 of my babies were negative on a home pregnancy test. I would of only been 3 weeks pregnant at the time, because a week later I re did the home tests and was positive, and had all the ultrasounds the same week I found out and was 4 weeks 3-4 days with all them! Amy
  • Yes with my second baby who is now 10 months old did a home pregnancy test and it was neg then went to dr 3 days later and they tested my urine and I was pregnant so I had a blood test and ultrasound to see how far I was and I was 6 weeks pregnant. Tiffany
  • I reckon they make half of their tests duds so that women have to keep forking out more money for them lol. Cassie
  • Yes 3 times. I went to the gp and negative 2 times. I was 7 weeks when I found out and only by blood test in the end as my period was well overdue and was worried sick that something could have been wrong! Mimina
  • I was 2 weeks late for my period and still was testing negative. I even had a blood test at the Dr’s and that was also negative! I went through about 6 negative tests. I started freaking out that something was seriously seriously wrong with me.  Did another home test at 2 weeks & 4 days after period was due and got a faint line. Turns out I ovulated about 8 days later than usual? That little fertilized egg is now almost 7 months old! Sarah
  • 5 to 6 wks before a test showed positive and I done plenty. Samantha
  • I had 3 negatives, went to the doctors for a blood test as I had a pretty strong feeling I was. I was about 5 weeks along. Melissa
  • We did with the cheaper brand tests. We  did the test the next day with a more expensive test and it was a very clear positive. Katiee
  • We actually tested negative on a blood test! I don’t know how. Went back for results and said nag and dr decided to do a preg test (3 days after blood was taken) and it was positive. I was 5 wks! Sally
  • I had a ‘feeling’ I was pregnant and was testing every day but all were negative, then one day I forgot to check it and came back about half hour later and there was two lines so I looked back at all the others and they had two lines as well! I wasn’t waiting long enough after checking them I’m now 36 weeks! Angela
  • Yes I was feeling crook & did 3 first response tests & all were negative… My Bub was only 5months so wasn’t planning another but just couldn’t shake the sickness & my mum kept saying I bet you’re pregnant. So end up going doctors & was 12wks or so they guessed. Beck
  • Yup with 2 pregnancies now ,,, I eventually found out with my son at 6 weeks found out this time at about 7/8 weeks , I knew both times I was but hpt and blood tests both came back negative until those times Samantha
  • These pregnancies, all 20 home tests until 12 weeks were negative, even the doctor’s blood tests. Hannah
  • Yes, at 2 weeks & even 4 weeks tests still came back negative.  Didn’t get a positive result until I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had low levels of HCG due to polycystic ovaries. Katerina
  • It isn’t the “name “brand that matters. It’s the ones that can test the lowest amount of HCG. internet ones work great and cost a lot less if you are testing each month Brooke
  • First test before I was late like 2 weeks before came back negative( I knew that I was pregnant, u know that gut feeling) and then did another one when I was 1 week late Cynthia
  • I have had the best tests say negative on more than one of my children. My third child was 16 weeks and still testing negative and I demanded a blood test and the doctor thought I was stupid, until it came back positive.  I just don’t produce HCG like most women and it has nothing to do with the test itself. Elizabeth
  • One of my tests came up negative…but I figured I’d taken it too early. It was positive a few weeks later. (I think early on the hormone levels were not high enough.
  • I hear is really common never happened to me but happens heaps on that show “Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant.”
  • Happened to me!!
  • Both of my pregnancy tests came back negative for both of my pregnancies. Even after a blood test it came back negative. But I was pregnant both times.
  • Yep, false HPT at around 5 weeks pregnant with my daughter, week later did another 1 came up positive.
  • I did 3 home pregnancy tests and they all came up positive so I went to the docs, they wanted to do one there and it came up negative!! :-L I was pregnant though, my son is now almost 5 months 🙂
  • Yes…I had four come up negative. I even went to the gp because I just knew I was and even she said ‘nup not pregnant.’ After five tests I finally got a positive 🙂
  • I had 4 pregnancy tests (including on at the doctor’s) with my first pregnancy, all throughout the first trimester. It wasn’t until I got a positive blood test that I found out I was 12 weeks pregnant!
  • I think for a pregnancy test to work well your period needs to be at least a week late, sometimes more! I found out with a positive test at about 5 weeks 🙂
  • Yes, it happened to me took a test around 4 weeks pregnant was negative and then took one around 7 weeks and was positive. I now have a healthy 3 year old.
  • It happen to me.. I had symptom of pregnancy, so I tested myself 3 times, all came up negative, then periods came. 4 weeks later I was at Dr cause of unusually long bleeding outside of my period. My gynaecologist did blood test to find out I was 8 weeks pregnant with an ectopic pregnancy.
  • Both mine came up negative as I tested too early I think…I just knew I was pregnant both times and kept testing till I got that second line 🙂 I think I willed the line on there with my second!
  • I had a negative hpt the day my period was due, figured it was right as with my first daughter I got positive result straight away, and then had a period, but found out I was pregnant when we lost bubby 6 weeks later 🙁 hope you have a better result, test again in a week or get bloods done.

    I found out that I was pregnant through my gp but did home tests and even at 6 months pregnant they would still come up negative. So I gave up on trying to get it for a scrap book.
