Negative tests

I think I'm mainly just writing this because I don't really have anyone else to 'vent' to about it. I don't want to say anything to my boyfriend until I know for definite what's going on with me. I just 'feel' like I'm pregnant it almost feels like instinct. I don't have regular periods but if I do get one then the time it normally comes it isn't due yet; I've been so convinced that I am though, I've been doing tests the past week but they all come back negative. Thing is though I've had 2 pregnancies before (one ended in a miscarriage) and they both started out where I just keep thinking constantly that I was pregnant even though I didn't have evidence to suggest so until like 3/4 months gone. So I don't know what to think whether I am indeed pregnant and its just like the others but for reason I'm having negative tests or I'm just going a bit nuts and just really really want to be pregnant but not too long ago couldn't stand the thought of having another child right now. So don't know how I've switched so fast if I'm not? Feel like I'm going mad a bit. As well as all this stuff going on I've put on weight, been feeling really tired most of the time (struggling to stay awake during the day) never used to take naps now falling asleep like at least twice a day and that with a full nights sleep. Apparently been incredibly grumpy and snappy towards other people and my boobs feel really heavy like if they were heavy before I never noticed but now its like two tons inside my boobs pulling them down if that makes sense. So I think all this is just adding to me questioning whether I'm pregnant or not. Has anyone else gone through this where they just don't know what to think?

I got very early positive tests, and even earlier vomiting (nice.)

But, it is possible to have low urine HCG levels. A friend of mine had this and all the urine tests were negative (for months) - only a blood test came back positive.

Ultimately, you can't know until you've had a positive test, whether that's urine or blood. All the early symptoms of pregnancy are quite vague, and can overlap with what you experience when you tre at certain points of your cycle/run down etc.

Book a blood test at your GP.

I was the same did a test a couple of days after my period was due as hadn't come on and was feeling sick and dizzy couple of weeks before I was due on which I don't usually get and was sure I was pregnant but was negative did one 2 weeks later as still hadn't come on and was positive. I thought I must have had a bug as kept feeling sick and dizzy really thought I was pregnant but test said negative. So wait for another couple of weeks see if you get a positive then smile

With both of my pregnancys I knew straight away that I was pregnant. Same 'feeling' as you describe. However with both I did numerous tests for weeks before anything showed positive. I think I just have low levels of hcg or something. Anyway, my advice would be to wait another week and try again. You'll drive yourself mad Doug loads of tests and will waste lots of money on negative tests.

I was the same, came off the pill and had never had regular cycles but felt weird and had really sore boobs. All tests I took were negative. In the end I went to the doctor and it turned out I was pregnant!
It is frustrating not knowing what's going on though so I understand your pain. Maybe give it another week and test again
