    Pregnant?

    Hi Everyone...

    To get right to the point, I am one week late today. LMP was on May 24th and I average a 26 day cycle (I have been tracking for 4 years). I have had some spotting - not consistent. Took two pregnancy tests, one yesterday and one today. Both negative. I have NO pregnancy symptoms. But, I am usually regular, unless I am traveling - and even then, it's about a day or two off. Not one week.

    It's been almost 10 years since I've been pregnant and I have no clue what lead me to test that time...

    So, I guess my question is...can you get two false negatives and if so, when should I test again?

    Thanks!

    Hello.

    I have never gotten two false negatives, but from what I've ready, it is possible - it all depends on your body and if you have enough hormones for the test to pick up.

    It's possible you could be pregnant, but there are a lot of things that can cause missed and/or late period.

    I would suggest waiting another week. If you still don't get your period than I would just skip the HPT and go to the doctors.

    Are you trying to be pregnant? If yes,use Ovulation Test Kit to test your most fertile day. It is 99% accurate.

    Thanks for the replies!!

    I thought I was starting my period last night, then nothing - and this morning, its just light spotting. Cramping a bit yesterday and I'm feeling flutters in my stomach (weird, I know, but I feel them nevertheless)...since I'm not in any kind of pain, I'll give it another week.

    While I am not actively trying to get pregnant, it would be a nice surprise
