Two Positive Urine Negative Blood

Hello. I had two positive urine tests, but when I went for my blood test,  they said it was negative. May 4th will be a month that I am late on my period. I am having typical pregnancy symptoms, sore breasts, nausea and vomiting, headaches, fatigue with difficulty sleeping, change in appetite... Is it a possibility that I could be pregnant? Or could something else be causing a false positive? I got so excited to see two positive urine tests, thinking that this was finally it, I had conceived. Then when I got the blood test done yesterday, it came back negative, I am crushed.. I don't know what to do...

What types of tests were you using? The blood test is usually the gold standard, but with all your symptoms I'd think I'd be asking for an ultrasound just to make sure nothing else is going on. You could also try using a different brand of test, maybe you had a bad batch, or ask for a repeat blood test or do both.

Now the number of tests is up to 4. First one was a Dollar Store brand, which is always the one that works so well for just about everyone in my area. They pick up quicker than Clear Blue or First Response. The second one was Clear Blue digital. The last 2 were at the doctors office. Both came back positive. But the blood test shows no signs of pregnancy. Can something else cause a false positive?
