Feel pregnant but pregnancy tests come up negative. Could they be wrong?

I have a very strong feeling that am pregnant with my 2nd. period is a few days late, boobs sore and def bigger and feel sick. The first test I did came up with a very very faint positive but the 3 I have done since have all been negative. has this happened to anyone else? Confused as feel the same way I did with my little girl but should I trust the tests??????

I can't offer any advice except to say, you just have to wait and see - do another test in a couple of days. I know how hard it is, I was TTCing for a year after an MC until I got pregnant with this baby. Keep strong and you never know Good luck.

Were they 'cheap' tests or well known brands and have you tested with the first wee of the morning?

A faint positive is still a positive, and there are no false positives. So two options: tests generally too early, or chemical pregnancy that showed up but was lost...crossign fingers for too early! Test again in a couple of days and good luck.

you can have false negatives (just wait a few days and retest), but false positives are very very unlikely.

Always test with morning urine as it's not as diluted as during the day when you've been drinking water etc. Good luck!
