    Default Positive HPT but Negative blood test? Help!!

    Hi Girls hope someone can help me. One of my besties rang me on Friday excited because she had a positive HPT and has been feeling really off so thought she might be - bigger (.)(.)s, nausea, off certain foods, peeing all the time, extremely tired, some dizziness in the morning etc. and got a +ve on FR on Friday and again on Sunday morning. Then on Monday she went to the doctor to have a blood test and it came back today negative!!! They didn't tell her the levels, the receptionist just said "uh no - its negative" and that was that. She is so confused as she is still feeling crap.

    So which would you go by, the HPT or the blood test? any advice as to what to say to her? she is just devastated and is thinking about giving up TTC because it is just so emotionally draining....

    I would tell her to go get another blood test There may have been a lab error or something.

    The only way to get a positive HPT is to be pregnant. I had a negative blood test result with my DS2 only to be retested a few days later and it came back positive.

    HPT's ONLY respond to HCG which is only presnt in the body during a pregnancy. To have two positive HPT's and not be pregnant is virtually impossible - my money is on a lab stuff up as Myztik said. I'd tell her to go back for a re-test....

    Good luck!
