Just wait a few months (or years!), it'll become quite obvious whether she's pregnant. ;)

These tests are only about 0.15 CHF each (shipped!) if ordered online. If you buy ten sets of 10, you can get the price down to 0.1 CHF/piece.

Bad news, got the blood tests back as negative.

We must be the unluckiest wannabe parents in the world. 2 false positive tests, raging!

Well, just need to keep trying and i will stock up on tests so we can find out a bit cheaper this time, spent 31.- on 2 pee tests, 35.- on a digital and 50.- on the blood test. over 100.- just to get that bad news :(

Disappointed for you both, and hope you have better luck very soon.
One of my daughters had a difficult time 'getting going' but now has four beautiful children under 10.

Ah sorry to hear that - but dont brand yourself unlucky just yet, it doesn't normally happen first time for many, on average it can take up to 6 months - I waited 5 years but the wait was worth it :)

Re: Pregnancy test accurancy???
 
Awww, that is sad :(

But I'm sure you'll have nice news soon enough :) And you have the added advantage of having fun trying ;)

Re: Pregnancy test accurancy???
 
That's too bad...good luck next time. Try not to focus on the mechanics, just enjoy yourself :)

Also, worth checking out the pharmacies over the border.

Re: Pregnancy test accurancy???
 
thanks folks, yes, its fun trying but we have been trying for many months and we thought that this was it this time.

Well chin up, worse things can happen

Nickers 13.07.2011 09:51

Re: Pregnancy test accurancy???
 
If you've been trying for many months (how many) I'd invest in some ovulation pee sticks (if you haven't already) so you can be sure you hit the target at the 'right' time - there really in only a tiny window each month

I can imagine how gutted you feel :(

Very sorry to hear this news. Those two little pink lines represent a lifetime's worth of dreams, hopes and ambitions. I imagine the past 24 hours have been an emotional rollercoaster.

Fingers crossed for a good result soon...

I am with Nicky on the ovulation sticks, gives you a better insight and getting the timing right... I know it is hard, I needed a little help as well but 4 kids later....Hang in there (no pun intented)

So sorry, better luck next time.

Sorry to hear that. Today must be a sad day. You are allowed to be sad, so don't feel like you have to say "never mind" and then move on. Yes, next month is another month and maybe that will be the month. But today, give each other lots of hugs.

hi, just read that my blood test might have been done too early. the HCG is different on every women and might not raise as quick as on others. 14 days after conception the blood test is relayable. i done mine after 11 days. might still be lucky :-D as the early tests are more sensitive to HCG than the blood and 2 positive tests make it unbelevable for me to be wrong.....! will need to be patient and not giving up hope.

Did they tell you if they found any traces of HCG at all? If I were you I would wait till Sundaymorning and test again if you didnt get your period by then. Good luck
