Can't get a positive result

Aug 9th, 2010, 11:20 AM   #1
 
Hi everyone,

I "know" I'm pregnant but want to get a nice clear test result before i phone the midwife. I have done countless tests, with only one of them having a discernible (yet very faint) line in the test box.
I've tried several brands including ClearBlue Digital. The positive was using Predictor, and the same brand has given negatives since.
As one of my symptoms, I am peeing ALL the time - could this be stopping me from getting a clear result?


Starting to feel like it's all in my head!

Hey, when is period due? x could be your hcg level is to low to show out on test yet.. Some test give resultat easier as they can detect lower HCG level than other tests.. Preditctior is one of them..
You cant get a fake positive ( if it was a clear faint line or with colours not ep line) but you can get fake negatives...

Good luck xx

Hi and congratulations!

It may be that your urine isnt concentrated enough to pick up a good enough result. Have to tried with first morning urine? I think generally a gap of about 4 hours between peeing is sufficient to show a good line but that also depends on how far along you are ie how late is your period?

Im sure as the days go along it will get stronger and you will have your BFP!!! xxx

Thanks guys.
My period was due about 9 days ago. Been nautious for about 11 days!

Have almost always used first morning urine but have been waking up early needing to pee.

I'm going to do another test tomorrow i think and get a docs appointment if still faint or neg.

As long as your aren't drinking anything since when you go to sleep until you test, then it doesn't really matter how often you've been to pee.

It's a bit of a weird situation - i know some poeple don't test positive until later, but 9 days past is pretty extreme.

I think that if i was in your situation, instead of phoning the midwife i'd phone your GP and ask for a blood test.

Fingers crossed!

Iona - please keep us posted as this is an unusual situation and something we all feel we go through at times so would love to know the outcome of your doc/midwife visit, I can then maybe stear clear of certain brands. Congrats by the way xxx

Thanks everyone for your imput. I actually managed to see a doctro today. He was a bit patronising but basiccally said that I probably am pregnant but that it is early days. He said to wait a week to take another test then they would consider a blood test after that. He also looked at my Predictor test with the faaint pink line and said he would say it was a negative, so make of that what you will!

Hmmm... he saw a faint pink line and decided it's probably negative?

That's a new one for me lol

He probably feels it is better for you to presume negative than positive taking everything into consideration, which i think i'd agree. If you're right you'll know soon enough

Best of luck to you xx

Hi,

I am going through the same thing, pregnancy symptoms and negative tests and also the only one that i got what looked like a positive ( there was defo a line there) was the predictor test.

I have tried clear blue, first response and some cheap ones from ebay, i keep thinking i see a line on some of them but think it could be my eyes decieving me, maybe the predictor gives v bad evap lines? altho mine was definetly in the time limit. strange!

Keep us informed, lots of babydust to us both

Hi Laura, I guess we both just have to wait it out. I'm fairly sure it's not an evap line on the Predictor- like you said, it was in the time limit and mine was definitely a pink line too, whereas an evap line is grey. It's frustrating not knowing though, isn't it?
