PS If it helps, I’ve just looked this up online, and less common reasons for a false negative test include being overweight (which can also cause you to test negative on a blood test), being very well hydrated, and being on certain medications.
Some of the common medications which influence test results can be found here: http://www.nhs.uk/chq/pages/2308.aspx?categoryid=54
This site shows you that you are far from alone… many women get false negatives:
Of course, you could also have just had a late implanter, which wasn’t producing enough HCG to prevent a breakthrough bleed (hence your ‘period’).
Either way, congratulations!

Glad everything worked out! I was pretty shocked when I went in at what was supposed to be my 12w NT scan only for them to tell me I was 16weeks pregnant. Whoa! I obviously never took a test early because I thought it was my period (when it must have been implantation bleeding), so I only found out I was pregnant when I missed my “next” period and by then I was really 8weeks along. So it happens!

Thank you all so much. We are so relieved and excited. It becomes so real once you see the little heart beating away. and yes, it’s kinda nice skipping forward a month! Even hubby said ‘we can tell people sooner!’ Hehe.
I’m hoping week 8, no MS yet, may mean I’m one of the lucky ones to avoid it. *knock on wood*

congrats!! So glad it turned out to be a timing issue, not something bad. I’m a March mama too! A few weeks behind you–6 weeks in a few days. You are very lucky! I’ve had a few waves of nausea–not fun.
