my test came back positive after 2 days late. I took it late at night. I ended up in the ER not a few hours after because I was having very bad pains. Ended up a bladder infection and I was pregnant. Have you had a lot of stress lately? I know that has caused me to be late in the past? You could call your doctor and have them do a blood test if you want some results and feel you aren't sure if the pee tests are working?

with my first son I had negative urine test and even a blood test. My hormones weren't high enough yet I didn't know until I was 2 months pregnant. The test didn't come back positive until after I started getting morning sickness. I knew I was pregnant, I think if you are listening to your body you already know.

My first baby I was 2 and a half months late ( 2 months pregnant) before I got a positive pee pee test. My second baby I didn't bother testing the first two months.

Mine normally showed up right when I missed. I don't know which test you are using but the digital ones are better than the lines I think. You can get 2 for $10 at Wal-Mart. When I used to buy the expensive ones though EPT did not work. First Response was a good one and I think it works days before you have missed. Good Luck if you are wanting to have another one. :)

I don't have a regular schedule, so I really don't know, but they are all the same no matter what they claim. You can get one from the dollar store for $1, and it will work exactly the same. It could be that you are stressed, or there may be some other reason you haven't started yet. I would say wait a week to see if you start, and if not take a test. If it still comes back negative, call your dr.

I was 8 days late this summer and convinced that I was pregnant. I took multiple home tests and a blood test. All came back negative. The doctor told me to wait to take another test until I was 14 days late and then call them back if I didn't start and still got negative results because it could be the stress of taking so many tests that was causing the negatives. Well, on day 10 I started so it was just a strange cycle (and maybe the stress thing).
I don't know if that is overly helpful to you. You can always call your doctor and ask for a blood test. They are much more accurate than the home tests.
