It’s very, very uncommon to get a false positive on a pregnancy test, but very easy to get a false negative if you’re testing too early.  Since you’re still 9 days before your missed period I would guess that it’s very likely the one positive was right.  Here’s an article about false positive pregnancy tests and what causes them.  Hopefully this can help you figure out whether or not your first test was right. 🙂

I had taken dollar store tests during my pregnancy and they were just as accurate as the “good” tests, just much much cheaper!

If you havent even missed your period yet, I would wait a bit before taking another one. The pregnancy hormone could be really low in your body at this point. Although, that said, I found out I was pregnant 3 weeks into my pregnancy by taking a test “For fun” haha. Surprise! 😛

The symptoms your feeling don’t usually show up this early in pregnancy. It could just be your mind causing them.

I would say it sounds like you are pregnant.  Really the only thing to do though is wait a few more days and test again. 

My guess would be that since you peed on the stick that was only supposed to have a few drops is that it actually did pick up the HCG while the others with the less amount of liquid did not.   The HCG doubles every day so keep testing! 

I too used the dollar store brands and had them recommended to me by a doctor.  Save your money they work fine.

I have heard that false positives are very rare, so there’s a good chance you’re pregnant! I would try to wait a few more days and test again first thing in the morning. Good luck!!!

Since you are SO early, Im guessing the first test you took had the highest amount of HCG in it, so it was detected.  As you drank throughout teh day, the urine was diluted, so there wasnt enough of the HCG in the diluted urine to be detected by the test.

Wait until the morning and take one with your first urine.  Im guessing you are pregnant.  I hope congrats are in order!

I would get a blood test at the doctor.  That will not only tell you if you are pregnant, but would also rule out a chemical pregnancy (extremely early “miscarriage” where the egg is fertilized but doesn’t attach) or a case of a really low HCG level (which at your point is perfectly normal, as long as it rapidly increases).

It costs more, yes.  But worth the peace of mind!

I hope you are pregnant!!!  Good Luck!!!!!!!!!

They were negative because your hormone levels are low this early, and different tests will read different levels of hormones (early morning should have given a positive though, but it’s too early to have super high levels). Go to the doctor for a blood test!

@crayfish:  Actually, that’s not always true.  I so hope this isn’t the case, but sometimes “early results” pregnancy tests can detect a chemical pregnancy that a women otherwise would not have known about.

Keeping my fingers crossed for a BFP!!!!
