OK..I would like to say its completely possible..I took 3 tests when I thought I was pregnant and they were all neg..a week later..still no period and again neg test..I went in to the doc and sure enough I was pregnant..Same deal with my second son..I didnt have a positive test until 2 months after my pregnancy was confirmed via ultrasound..With this baby I got 2 negative tests one day and 2 positives 2 days later..it may just be too early to tell..

It does happen quite a bit! It happened to my friend. When they were TTC she was a week late with BFN.. The Dr. did a HCG and blood draw showed her right at 4 weeks. Today she has a healthy 1 year old!!

Let's HOPE it's it's our month for BFP's!!!

How long was your period a no show before the dr did an ultra sound? Did they try any other testing? I'm going on 2 months my period is a no show, had discharge, slight cramping.. I went to the dr on 1/31 and all he did was a pee test, which was neg he did a pap and thyroid blood test which all came back completely normal. They said they are going to do more testing but this is the first time I've missed my period in yearsss and I'm not on any bc. So now I sit and wait for a call back from them.. The nurse tried telling me it's completely normal when you are on Loestrin bc, I told them I was on that like 3 bc pills ago and 2 dr visits ago the dr took me off of all pills. It's been about 5 or 6 months of being off of them completely.. HELLLOOOO, read my chart before you call me back ding bat! Out of all of the posts I've read you are the only one that has gone as long as I have without a period.

wait for it......................................... NOPE! lol. I received a call from my doctor who told me that they will do more hormone level testing as soon as I can get in to get it done.. So the earliest I could get in was this coming Tuesday at 10am... They are testing 3 more hormones and for any HCG. If there the HCG comes back negative he is putting me on progesterone to force AF to show her ugly face (can't wait to see it, however I know it will be a witch!) If there is HCG, i'm sure I'll be called into the office immediately. Still bloating and discharge, cramping at times.. Nothing new! same ol crapola! Soooo, check back with me on Tuesday.. until then, i'm off to Miami for the weekend to celebrate my father in laws 40th bday :)
