I’m currently 5 days late for my period, and have 2 clear blue negative tests. Thing is, I’m normally really regular - most variation since starting periods again since having DS is 3 days. I’m still bf my 19 month old - mostly max 3-4 times a day though occasionally more and I’m wondering if that might affect results. I should say I also feel really tired and am weeing constantly which is familiar from my last pregnancy. I feel like I might be pregnant - it would be a bit of a shock but very welcome as we would really like another baby. I’m wondering if anyone has any experience of false negatives while breastfeeding?

Also I should say I’m 38 so my brain is slightly spinning out that there’s something else going on. I’ve tested positive early with DS, and in previous pregnancy (mc at 11 weeks).

This is under food and recipes which is prob why no replies yet!

I’ll see if I can get it moved for you

No experience myself - got a positive while bf dd2.

Only thing I can think of is wait a day or two and test first thing in morning of it sent shown up.

Hi there OP,
We're moving your thread over to our conception topic now.
If you think it'd be better suited elsewhere, just give us a shout.

No, it really shouldn't. Try a pink dye test as clear blues are a bit shit!

No. Breastfeeding has no impact on HGC levels.
