7 weeks and still bfn?

edited January 10 in 1st Trimester
I’ve not had a period since late November, and I had some implantation bleeding right on schedule.  I track everything I can, and I’ve got all the symptoms, right down to the start of morning sickness, and the headaches... this would be my second child, but tests are still negative!!  I’ve missed two periods so far, and still no bfp. I have an appointment to confirm at the end of the month, but this feels so strange. Has anyone else gone weeks without a positive test even though you know you were pregnant?

Re: 7 weeks and still bfn?

  • I agree with the other posters. 
    If you were truly seven weeks you would be able to turn a test.  Best wishes at your doc for answers.

  • Have you been using OPKs or temping? If you have not confirmed O, then you can't be sure that you're pregnant. Hopefully you get some answers from your doctor!

  • My cycles are very short. I temp and graph my cycles, so I know when I ovulated, and my base core temp has remained elevated ever since. My bleeding in December was two days of minimal spotting exactly when I would have implanted, and if I count that as a period, I’m 3 days late for my January cycle today. 

    Im throwing up, my nipples are dark, smells are significantly increased, I’m totally exhausted, I tested namegatube for the flu, and last night, I dipped my beef jerky in my husbands mint chocolate chip ice cream. But yes, still, no positive on my hpt. I may get a different brand and try again, as the ones I’m using were a bulk pack on amazon. The tiny little strips where you get 25 for like 10 dollars?  Anyway, I made an appointment for an ultrasound. I’ll either bleed between now and the appointment, or we will confirm that I’m pregnant.

    People think we become mothers when we give birth but the truth is we become mothers the moment we start calling our babies to us in our thoughts, dreams and prayers. Some paths are short and some are so long that you can easily forget where you were headed.

  • @peanomkay unfortunately all of the symptoms in the world mean nothing without a positive test.  You're at most 7-8 weeks which is well within the limits for a hpt to read positive if you are pregnant.  Every BFP I've ever gotten was on a cheapie Wondfo test strip from Amazon.  They are legit.

    I'm happy you have a doctor appointment because if you are not pregnant, and you likely are not, there could be something else going on with you that would require medical intervention.  Good luck.

  • Where are you going for an ultrasound? I hope that you have called your doctor, have told them what's going on and they had/have you come in, as a medically necessary ultrasound can only be done with a referral.

    Please do not go to a boutique where your worries/concerns can not be answered, but only make things more stressful if there is nothing to be seen.

    None of this changes what I or anyone else said.

  • My ultrasound is on the 31st. It’s the soonest they had available. Here’s hoping!  I’m gonna get this sorted out by hook or by crook. :)

  • one would assume your doctor would at least draw betas to confirm. andplusalso they don’t seem too convinced if they scheduled you 3 weeks out...

  • Under the care of my RE they drew a few betas and did a couple ultrasounds, but when I made my first appointment with my OB they didn't actually ask if I'd had a positive pregnancy test. And my RE was in a different city than my OB, so I'm not sure if the receptionist bothered to pull up my medical history before scheduling the OB appointment. I wonder how often people call to make prenatal appointments and then it turns out the patient isn't actually pregnant. 

    Is a dating ultrasound common practice at early prenatal appointments when you haven't been seeing an RE?

    My doctor office required a 1st appointment to be with a nurse practitioner where they do a urine test, if it is positive then you go through a whole health history, LMP, sexual history, possibility of STDs, everything then a pap test! Once you are through with that THEN they will order any necessary blood work and/or dating ultrasound based on the results of the questionnaire.  

    They dont take your word for it.

  • I finally tested positive.

    my appointment is so far out because that was the soonest he had. Sorry it doesn’t fit your guys’s standards of care. Apparently yes, this can happen this way.

  • With my daughter, I had a positive test and then called to set up an appointment. First, we had a brief appointment that was basically just a tour of the facility and discussing how care is provided there. Then, a week or so later, I had a dating ultrasound followed a few days later by a regular appointment. Typically, the first appointment and dating scan are at the same time, but I needed the last appointment of the day so my H could come, and since first appointments are longer than regular appointments, they couldn't do it at the end of the day. 

    So they never did any sort of testing to see if I was pregnant prior to the dating scan. I don't remember if they ever asked if I got a positive test or how I knew I was pregnant. 

    Fwiw, this was a private practice freestanding birth center with midwives, not a doctor office or a public hospital, but I don't know if that changes things. 

    With my current pregnancy, I had no appointments until 18 weeks. At that point, I was visibly pregnant, and they could feel my uterus and all that jazz, so no testing necessary!

    Appointment or ultrasound or both?  Still have not said whether the ultrasound is doctor scheduled or boutique.
