Any Mommas NOT get a BFP on a Home pregnancy test, but IS/WAS Pregnant?

**Update- Posts 18 and 20

I am almost 8 weeks late (tomorrow) and have not had a BFP. I am having pregnancy symptoms though I went in this morning and had blood drawn, but I'm just wondering if any other Momma's have been through this? Both of my other pregnancies showed up EARLY on home pregnancy tests (6weeks and 4weeks). Should I worry at all? This would be a complete surprise pregnancy as DH and I have been avoiding, but apparently if I am pregnant it was meant to be

ETA: OB didn't call me before they went home this evening so I am playing the waiting game till Monday to find out for sure :sigh:

Are you nursing by chance? That could make for some crazy cycles and if you are pregnant maybe your only a few weeks rather than eight weeks. If you aren't nursing then I have no idea! Good luck!

I don't know if this helps, but I was 2 weeks late before I got a positive HPT with my daughter.

*hugs* I have a friend who even at 5.5 MONTHS couldn't get a BFP for the life of her - even though the kid was kicking like crazy! Baby boy turned out happy and healthy, so it does happen! Sometimes your body just doesn't metabolize the HCG into your urine for some reason. (Interestingly for my friend, she had several kids, that one was in the middle and the ONLY one that didn't give her a BFP)

Sometimes if you go too long to test, it will throw false negatives. I think HPT drops later in pregnancy. There was a thread about it awhile ago. I don't think 11 weeks is too late though...
