All woman start with a low HCG when they first get pregnant. HCG doubles every 2-3 days in the first weeks of pregnancy. The doubling time slows down as the weeks progress and then eventually, the HCG levels top off and then decrease some.

As far as having BFNs at 3 days late, it could just mean that you ovulated late and thus had a later implantation, so you aren't testing positive yet. I hope you get either a BFP or AF so you can move onward from here soon!

I was on HCG shots for 6 months (but stopped taking them 2 months ago) Could that have anything to do with my body processing the HCG faster and it not being in my urine?

I don't believe it would because once you are pregnant, your body is constantly producing the HCG (until later in pregnancy), it's not a one time burst of it that your body just gets rid of. Have you considered calling your doctor for a blood test?

ya it looks like I might have to.... Still no AF which is strange...didn't test this morning...gonna give it another day or two to start up. Gonna eat lots of chocolate and BD today, that normally seems to get AF to come over haha. If nothing by Wednesday or thursday that will definitely be a week late and I will be headed in to the Dr office.
