I had a very strange day yesterday, one of my work colleagues told me that she can tell when someone is pregnant and she told me I was (which I thought was weird) I have never said to her I was trying so it was strange when she just came out with that. I went home and done a test in the afternoon on a cheap ebay test and a very very faint line appeared, which I was over the moon about. I went and bought FR tests last night and used one this morning with FMU and it was BFN....I was wondering if there is a chance I could be pregnant but not picked up on the FR test? Unfortunately I do not know where I am in my cycle as I haven't had a period since March I ahve been having some symptoms, most notibly the sensitive/sore boobs and I didn't even have them in my first pregnancy! Any help would be great thanks xxx
thanks for your reply imnotaslimjim i have been to the doctors regularly and the one i usually see just tells me that periods will start eventually, however over the weekend I had discharge from my right breast so was at another doctor on monday who has arranged for hormone blood tests to be done, had blood taken yesterday. doctor thinks that my brain is producing too much prolactin which is stoping my periods so just waiting on the results of this im just holding onto hope that I am pregnant x
if you've had breast discharge and no AF for that long I would go back and insist on a scan. Have you gained any weight at all? It doesn't have to be just around the tummy, I know a few ladies that gained weight all over
As lissie says, you don't generally get BFPs in the 2nd trimester as you aren't producing HCG anymore. Hope you get an answer soon
The problem with late testing ie if you're really quite well into a pregnancy is that your hcg levels peak at the end of the first trimester and stay quite high (though they do drop off a bit). It's too much hcg for a test to cope with and they read negative. I think it's called the hook effect iirc. You can dilute your urine and retest to reduce the amount of hcg in the sample.
It's all academic really though. You need to talk to your gp about full blood tests, including for hcg.
