The most common reason for a false negative is testing too early.  If you’re 8 days late, it probably wouldn’t hurt to take a pregnancy test if you haven’t already.  If you’re normally regular and you don’t start soon, you may want to contact your doctor’s office.

Never been pregnant myself, but was JUST talking to my friend who says she is one of the few people who does not get positive pregancy tests. She is pregnant for the second time right now, and she is falsely testing negative, which also happened throughout her entire first pregnancy. It was only detected both times through bloodwork. She said her MD said it happens, though rarely! (Not rare to have false neg’s at all I think when testing early, incorrectly, etc, but I mean rare in that throughout pregnancies she never got a single positive)

Have you take a pregnancy test?

@HotPinkPopTart: Oy, sorry, I posted that a couple seconds right before you clarified. I was a week late a few months ago (right about the time we started TTC). I didn’t even realize it will we got back from visiting my inlaws for Thanksgiving. I took a test the night we got back (at about 5 days late) and it was negative. I got my period 2 days later. I still don’t know why I was so late, but it does happen.

I have a friend who never tested positive on a pregnancy test. No idea why, but she said she’d take them every month up until delivery and never had a positive. I don’t think it’s fairly common, but it seems that everybody knows somebody that it happened to. 8 days late when you’re pretty regular seems like you should see a doc soon for a blood test at least, to see if something else is up.

I have a friend that also tested negative though her bloodwork was positive. She may have been testing too early though. She didn’t wait long before going to see a doctor.
