Ok so I *think* I ovulated around April 20th and DH and I did have sex but with a condom because we don’t want to actually TTC till Aug. The condom did come on halfway through so maybe precum? Then we had unprotected sex twice a week ago. Well I should have had my period arrive on Sunday and now its three days late. What’s driving me crazy is that for the past few days I’ve been having lower abdominal cramps, leg pains, bloating, breast tenderness on occassion, leg pains, and lower back aches. I took a pregnancy test last night and there was a faint barely there positive line (this was at 8pm) and then I took another one 2 hours later and it was definitely negative. I am going crazy because I have all the symptoms that I usually have with my periods but my period is MIA.
Any ideas on what this could be? I can’t possibly be pregnant from having sex a week (a week post ovulation) ago can I? Would my body even know/show any symptoms?

I suggest waiting and taking a test in the morning. 2 hours isn’t enough time for the pregnancy hormone in your body to be enough for a test.

Did you switch to a less sensitive brand the second time? I’ve heard that really dilute pee or not enough of a hold can give a false negative but idk. I’d test again first thing in the morning. I would say you are because you can’t get a false positive and you did see a line

Do you have a photo of the positive test?
Waiting two hours and testing again in early pregnancy, it’s easy to get a false negative, since your urine would have been too dilute for the hormone to register on the test.
Good luck..let us know how it goes!

lilek22: If you Od later than you think it may be an early positive. Test again in the morning with a first response test if possible.

Doesn’t sound like you’re trying to hard not to get pregnant 😛 But to me, it does sound like you are pregnant. I think you can easily get a false negative but not a false postive.

Another negative! I am throwing in the towel but I am seeing my doc next week so maybe he can explain my vague symptoms
