    My ds wasn't planned. I poas at home and it was positive, so I panicked and dh and I went to an after hours clinic to see if they could confirm it. They had me pee on another stick, which came back negative. She did a blood test anyway and rang me 2 days later to tell me I was 3 - 5 weeks pregnant.

    I tested after being 15 days late, have faint second line. then this morning being 18 days late its so much clearer.
    I can't believe the dr was so rude as they know I was told at ths age of 15 I'd never have kids so pregnancy tests have thrown me. can't wait for monday to confirm it after 4 positive home tests I know im pregnant.

    Yep mine was negative when I was pregnant!! The tests they use aren't sensitive at all so don't pick up HCG until a high number. I had a negative then a positive blood test

    Yep, went to the Gp at 5 weeks for a blood test to confirm my pregnancy and their urine preg test came up negative. Luckily I have heard they can be bad tests (not sensitive) so I took my positive clearblue plus hpt with me to show the GP. My blood test came back positive - of course!

    Wow, just confirms to me that there are some not so bright GP's out there. And why the need to be rude about it!? I have no idea why any doctor would feel the need to do another urine test instead of doing a blood test, especially when you had FOUR positive tests at home? They only use the same/similar to what you would have used at home. Anyway. Good luck - would love to see the Doctors reaction when you get your positive blood results!

    I love my GP. Didn't need to see my POAS and didn't even send me for bloods, just took my word for it and was happy to refer me to my Ob.

    But yes, I've heard that the tests at the GPs are not as sensitive.
