You’re probably not, but take another test in a few days just to be safe.

Depends what type of test you used, because some tests arent as sensitive as others. I would wait a couple days and then use a digital test like First Response Gold

Definitely re-test in a day or so!

Sometimes the easiest ones to read are the ones that indicate “pregnant” or “not pregnant” instead of trying to interpret faint lines/plus signs.

I second the digital test idea in a day or two….good luck!

^^^I did! I was going on 3 weeks late for AF, always regular and knew i was pregnant but got 3 tests all negative. week and a half later, bought 3 more tests, all came back positive! It’s not the norm but is possible, agree with other PP’s take another test in the AM and yes digital ones are best!

@mrs2b2011:  I tested when I was 2 days late… Negative.  Tested again 5 days later… Positive.  Still possible!

As hard as it is, wait and test again. a lot of people get +ives on the cheapie tests but not on digital ones early on, so use the tests you have.

It is possible to get a BFP after a BFN.  My Darling Husband was SURE I was pregnant and begged me to take a test.  I took a test and instantly it came back negative.  We went away for a week and came back and AF still hadn’t shown so we took another one and sure enough it was positive.  We are now 19 weeks!  Test again in a few days if AF doesn’t show!

Definitely test again and be sure to do it first thing in the morning.  The hormones the test pick up are more easily read by the tfirkin the am.

One thing that really helped me when we were pre-TTC was to track my cycles. No need to temp, but just even using an app to track my periods was helpful. It helps you see patterns in your cycle and can save you some stress in the future ( if you’re not pregnant this time). 🙂

ETA: don’t forget that lots of things can screw with your cycle, stress being one of the biggies. Illness, traveling, weight loss or gain can also be factors.
