Was it a urine test that came back negative?  If you tested at home with the first urine of the day, and later at the doctor with more diltued urine and you’re not very far along, it’s possible to have a false negative.  The blood test will let you know for sure.

I hope this isn’t the case, but it sometimes happens that you have a chemical pregnancy… in which case you will have a faint positive test before you miss your period, but then get a late period and negative tests.

@Wildflower2016:  Was your urine concentrated enough at the doctor’s office? I would take another home test with first morning urine tomorrow or a long hold today. What brand of test did you take at home? I also thought possibly a chemical pregnancy as @DaneLady: mentioned but try not to think the worst just yet.

@Wildflower2016:  I think you will be fine. It all depends on when the doctors took your urine sample. Maybe test again with first mornig urine, but I would wait for the blood results to come back in.

I’ll echo what everyone else said. A urine test at this early stage of pregnancy can still show up negative if it isn’t concentrated enough. Don’t worry 🙂

Maybe take another home pregnancy test in the morning to ease your mind?

 

Good luck!

Your second test was probably diluted! But I would cross my fingers and wait for the blood test!

That happened to my mom with me.  She was 4 months along before the test came back positive from the doctor. She didnt know what was going on.  Maybe its like you said there is not enough hcg yet.

@Wildflower2016:  A chemical pregnancy is a very early miscarriage. Most women don’t even know they’ve had one, as it tends to be like a normal period. But if you are taking pregnancy tests before your period is due, you might get a positive result, think you’re pregnant, then get your period when it’s normally due or a little bit later.

@Wildflower2016:  Chemical pregnancy is basically very, very early miscarriage.  The egg fertilizes but does not implant into the uterine lining, so when you get your period your lining is shed, along with the zygote.

@Wildflower2016:  A chemical pregnancy is when an egg is fertilized but fails to implant in the uterus. Sometimes when you use EPT (like First Response) it detects the small amount of HCG to give you a positive. But because the egg doesn’t implant, you don’t actually become pregnant.

This same thing happened to me. I had actually taken two tests at home (one in the afternoon, one the next morning) and both were positive. I had some bleeding and my doctor sent me to the ER that afternoon, and the test there came back negative. My doc made them do a blood test, which was then positive. He explained that, at least at my hospital, the hospital urine tests are less sensitive than the home tests. I’m currently 34 weeks pregnant, so in my case the home ones were correct. Hoping the same for you!

@Wildflower2016:  Unless you have just very recently conceived or you conceived later on into your cycle, it is probably accurate. When are you due for your period?

what do you mean the blood test came back negative? my understanding is the blood test tests your HCG levels ? so you had low levels?
