Help with home pregnancy test Pleas!!!

Sorry if this is a bit long.

My last period ended on November 22nd. On the 23rd my husband and I had unprotected sex. We have had sex plenty of time since then, but always with a condom. I should also mention that I am not on birth control. I still haven't gotten my period so I decided to take a pregnancy test last night. I got out of work at 10 p.m. and bought the CVS brand early digital pregnancy test. I took the test as soon as I got home and it said that I was pregnant. I was pretty shocked and wanted to take the other test right away. I drank a whole bottle of water and took the other test about an hour and a half later. (Probably not a good idea to down that much water). The test said that I wasn't pregnant. So this morning I went to the store and bought the First Response non-digital pregnancy test. I took the test around 9:30 a.m. and it was negative. (Was my second urination of the morning). I am not taking any sort of medications or stimulants. So what is more likely, I'm pregnant or that I'm not pregnant and just had a false positive test? Thoughts?

You very well could be pregnant. All tests have a different sensitivity level, even two tests in the same box may not have the exact same sensitivity threshold.

Your hcg levels may not be high enough to detect yet and you can def water down results by drinking too much water. Try take a test with first morning urine as soon as you get up and see what happens! Good luck!!

A false negative is much more common than a false positive. I would put in a call to your doctor and explain the situation. The only way to tell for sure would be a blood test.

GL and KUP!!
