I posted 2 weeks ago about possible implantation cramps, but as my period still hasn’t come I’m thinking that those were ovulation cramps and my period is due today.. it hasn’t come yet, so I tested today (after lunch) and the test is negative. I know I should have tested early in the morning.. but I bought the test and felt like I couldn’t wait.
Could I still be pregnant even though the test was negative, because I didn’t do it first thing in the morning?
Or should I give up hope and just wait for AF to come?

A friend of mine tested negative for more than a month (5 BFNs after her AF was due) and bloodtests showed that she was actually pregnant. Another (not exactly related, but still) thing happened to my mom, who tested negative, got her period and felt absolutely normal for almost 3 months, when her doctor realized that she was pregnant with my brother. Don’t give up until AF is there 🙂

I would wait a week and retest if no AF.

You will usually test positive a few days after implantation, depending on the sensitivity of your pregnancy test, and you will usually implant 7 to 10 days after ovulation. So a negative pregnancy test could be because:
1. You ovulated later than you thought and it’s too early to take a pregnancy test, or
2. You’re one of the extremely extremely rare women who does not excrete hcg in her urine, or
3. You’re not pregnant.
First morning urine sometimes has a higher concentration of hcg so it might give you a positive result a few hours sooner, but you can pretty much “replicate” it by holding your pee for four hours before taking a test.

If you can’t wait until morning you can try not drinking or drinking minimally and not peeing for around 4 hours and test again. GL!

You could have ovulated even later than you thought, that would be my guess if there is no AF and no positive test yet.
