You CAN be pregnant! I took a test IN THE DOC'S OFFICE when I was TWO MONTHS along. Their test came out negative. I didn't get a positive urinalysis result until I was 4 1/2 months pregnant! If we had done a blood test, we might have found out sooner :) Wait a few more days to a week, treat yourself as if you ARE pregnant, then take a test again. If it is still negative and you feel pregnant, ask your doc for a blood test.

Hope it turns out the way you need it. All babies are precious miracles, but I know a 10 month old and a newborn will be hard but not impossible :) My mom did it! I'll keep your family in my prayers!

I got two negative tests in a row when I was pregnant with my now 10 month old twin daughters. I agree with the other ladies, wait a few more days and take another pregnancy test first thing in the morning when you get out of bed. That's when the pregnancy hormones are the strongest. Because you have a 4 month old you may just be out of whack still with your normal cycle. If you take another test in a few days and it still comes back negative, and you think you could be pregnant, call your doctor. They can send you for bloodwork to get an absolute positive or negative. Good luck, and if you need anything else please feel free to message me!!

Test again in 2 days, in the morning.

48 hrs minimum, and make sure you are taking it in the morning. the pregnancy hormone is more readable to a test when you pee isnt as diluted (like it will be during the middle of the day from drinking beverages)

You can still be pregnant, yes. It takes a while for the hormones to build up. Take the test first thing in the morning with 'undiluted' urine. It's also possible that since you have a 4 month old, you're slightly imbalanced too. Stress plays a large role in how frequent you are as well. I would wait a couple more days before taking another test.

Yes, you could still be pregnant. Give it another 3-5 days, and always take the test in the morning, when the hormones are strongest.

Are you nursing your 4m old? You may just not be having reg periods yet.
