hi all. Just wondering if anyone was getting negative tests a few days after missed period but went on to get a positive result. Trying to be optimistic!

Yes - i did! Took a test on the Tuesday evening - missed period by about a week and was having unusal, mild cramping pains. By the Sunday evening, i was still getting the pains and was beginning to get slightly concerned as i had never experienced these cramps before. So i took the 2nd test in the kit, left it on the side (almost forgot to check it as i believed i wasn't pregnant!) and, what do you know...positive!

That said, i've no idea how often it happens, but i had a positive test 5 days after a negative one. DC born 8 months later!!

Have you any symptoms?

Good luck! x

I have had this with both of my babies. Took 5 days after my period was due with first one. With second one I had a 3 day bleed so assumed not pregnant, then bled again 10 days later thought it was strange and did a test. I am now 18 weeks pregnant.
Fingers crossed for you xxx

thanks for replying! Fingers crossed!
af due cycle day 27, now cycle day 30. Had the odd wave of feeling bit dizzy and felt sick once last week but not much. Have now got sore nipples which i never have. Dont know what to think really. Have had several negative tests. I guess its just wait and see...

Me me! With all 3 pregnancies (currently 20 wks with DC3) I have been convinced I'm pregnant, taken a test around the time my period should have been due, and got a negative result. Left it for a week, thought 'where the hell is my period??' taken another test and lo and behold a positive! Don't give up hope yet! Fingers crossed you get the result you want x

thanks smile
i dont want to delude myself, but equally its nice to have hope. had to get up to pee in the night last night, unusual for me, hope its a sign

mrsmarzipan Sun 08-May-11 09:50:21

me too!!!!

Just had a +ve result after period being 10 days overdue and 3 previous negatives.
Had sore boobs, nausea every evening, tiredness and mild cramps but still was getting -ves so was starting to think something wrong.
Did another test last night as had friends over and wanted to know if i could have a glass of wine, though didn't really fancy one and lo behold a +ve!
Checked again this morning and another +ve.

So happy but puzzled as previous pregnancies showed up straight away, but did have chest and throat infection when i thought i was ovulating so guess it delayed things.
Anyway good luck and have my fingers crossed for you!

Me too!

I was 8 days late before I got a +, after 5 negatives. I'm now 9 weeks.

Good luck!

I did, my old GP did a test after I missed a period whilst on the pill (never happened before!) & said something along the lines of "no, there's no way you're pregnant, it must just be stress" (we had recently had a family bereavement). Shrugged it off then 4 weeks later no AF & constant nausea, did a test & sure enough - 8 weeks pregnant! Good luck! smile

I had this - AF was due on the Sunday and I didn't get a positive test until the Wednesday. I felt tired, dizzy and 'different' but nothing came up on the test - even First Response.

I'm 17 weeks now. Fingers crossed for you!

DreamingOfABump Sun 08-May-11 21:39:15

thanks, its lovely to hear your stories. i guess its not over til the fat lady sings. still no sign of af.

clairefromsteps Sun 08-May-11 21:45:22

Yeah, this happened to me. I mentioned it to my midwife and she said it's best to do a test with your first wee of the day when it's nice and concentrated.

PelvicFloorsOfSteel Sun 08-May-11 21:47:29

I got a negative on the day AF was due and didn't get a positive until nearly a week later with DS1, the 12 week scan adjusted my due date by nearly a week though so I guess I ovulated very late that month.
Are your periods normally regular?

blueeyedmonster Sun 08-May-11 21:50:01

It's lovely to hear your stories. I think you're right dreaming it's not over till the fat lady sings (lets hope she doesn't wink)

DreamingOfABump Sun 08-May-11 22:17:26

smile yep, total singing ban at my house now!
ive had two periods off the pill and both have been spot on regular- spotting day 27 and period day 28. always was regular as clockwork before too.

i do hope that im telling my story on one of these thread in a couple of years. However i will be gracious and accept AF if she comes as this is only my first month ttc x

WiiUnfit Sun 08-May-11 22:23:02

Keeping my fingers crossed for you Dreaming smile Make sure you keep us posted!

WiiUnfit Sun 08-May-11 22:24:47

And you too blueeyed - assuming you are waiting for some important news? smile

blueeyedmonster Sun 08-May-11 22:26:33

Hopefully we will both be telling our story on one of these threads! I only tested with ds when I was a week late so maybe I should have waited this time..............

It's my first month too so I should be gracious really, don't want o be though as i'm impatient ha ha.

FX the fat lady sings for neither of us!

Icelollycraving Mon 09-May-11 11:01:46

I knew before my period was due that I was pregnant,as the feelings were so familiar (I mc 2 months before). Tests came up negative for 2 weeks.
I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant.
Trust your instincts & don't overindulge in any of the things such as alcohol,soft cheeses etc just in case.
Fingers crossed!

DreamingOfABump Mon 09-May-11 15:54:44

no af today...the wait continues!

blueeyedmonster Mon 09-May-11 20:31:33

Ice I knew when I was pregnant with ds before missed af too.

It's very frustrating isn't it dreaming why can't things happen how we need them too?

Thank wii I am!

I was due af today but nothing I hope i'm not kept waiting too long either way!

Icelollycraving Mon 09-May-11 20:41:41

Well I hope you get good news soon!
