Testing too early and getting a negative..then doing it again later and getting a positive

Did anyone test too early and get a negative and then take a test at a later date that came out as a positive? What made you try again? Did you just know you'd done it way too early? Im fighting doing a test at the min coz I know it will be negative...just clinging on to that last shred of hope!!!


  • I tested on a Sunday the day I was due on and got a negative - almost got drunk the same day. It got to the thurs and nothing so I decided I would buy a cheap one just to check. I did one because on the thurs morning didn't feel myself. Felt faint like I was going to pass out then I got my positive! X

    Hey honey, I am 24 weeks pregnant... I tested when my period was technically 2 days late, I'd known I was pregnant for a week! I got a negative, and another negative 2 days later... I had to wait til I was a whole week late for a positive! Tortureimage I have been pregnant before so KNEW I was... (miscarried), last time I tested when I was 3 days late and got a positive... all very strange! Oh and my negatives were on clear blue's so what a waste of pennies that was! xxx
  • Aw thanks for your replies girls, Im going to hold off anyway. Im pretty certain I aren't but it encourages me not to waist too much money on testing too early! image

    It's often to do with the time of day you do it too. First thing in the morning when hcg levels are highest is best time.

    Hold off Sarah until after due, and use a cheaper test too as I have heard they are more reliable. On the Sainsbury's one it gives breakdown of reliability before AF due. And it is pretty poor before actual due date
  • Will do image Im getting cramps anyway like AF is on her wicked way anyway! Boo!

    My friend had 6 negative tests when she was actually pregnant!

    She was told it's because it takes a while for the hormone to be more present to register on the test or something so was a week after her AF was due.

    I tested on the Monday had a negative result was really disappointed as we had been trying for 14 months. Woke up on the Wednesday morning and didn't feel right and had a test left so I thought I would do another just in case and a really faint line came up. My heart was beating so fast. I went straight to the shops and brought a clear blue digital test and it came up pregnant straight away. X

    I tested on Monday when period due, nothing, did a first response one this evening. Nothing. I am not sure what to do as going on hols on Thursday, do I take a spare test with me plus all my stuff in case AF arrived
  • Oh cebpickle how flippin annoying. I guess thats whatyou'll have to do..cover for both eventualities! Fingers crossed for you though!

    Thanks Sarah

    In a lot of ways I am hoping AF arrives, as it will just be easier as staying with husbands family then mine, and they would know if I wasn't drinking and eating those foods. I was just hoping it would arrive on time so almost gone when we go as husbands sister has a swimming pool.

    I will keep you posted. Can't test again before then though, I do think was only ovulating 9/10 days ago but going by cycles AF due.
