    Confused and no sign of AF

    Ok, so I had been having major symptoms of pregnancy for the past couple weeks (cramping, nausea, gassy, tender breasts, mood swings, low back pain, and a lot more) and is still having a few of them. I took a test yesterday morning with first morning urine and test came up negative. So I completely stopped freaking myself out about possible baby. Even though I have had MANY false negatives with my last two pregnancies. I dont want to worry but normally my HCG levels just arent that strong. Well, anyways AF is due today Thursday (11/08) and now I'm not even having any PMS or AF signs.


    So did I maybe test too early since my HCG levels are always low? Was it a false negative? Or what? I never had this with either of my daughters. I can always tell when I'm about to start AF and its definitely not in sight to start anytime within the next couple days so I'm really confused. Plus, to mention I have an IUD in place and again I can always tell when AF will start. I am just terrified of possible pregnancy since I have the IUD and dont want a tubal and not knowing it.

    Since you had false negatives with your previous pregnancies, I'd see about getting a blood test.

    Do you think I should go and get another $1 test and try tomorrow morning? Or wait to see if AF shows up to take another test and then blood test? Sorry so many questions!

    Sometimes it's recommended you test once a week until you either get a positive or your period. If you miss your next period and are still getting negative test results, then see your doctor.
