Possible preg all test neg

Hi, I am 24 and trying to conceive for 2 years now. We did some tests and found that my husband' s sperm isnt of good quality and we only have about 10% chance. There is nothing wrong with me. The last two months my period was very different, I had it for about 2 days each month only while it usualy lasts for 4-6 days. I didnt have lot of pain, where as I usually have lots of pain. I am nausious and very emotional. My mother and sister had their period up to 5months into pregnancy, so it runs in the family. My body seems different, I only gained about 1kg but my tummy looks and feels different. Are there any other signs I can check to know if I am? I did a home test and it showed positive but the blood test showed negative. Am I just daydreaming a pregnancy?

If the blood test was negative, you are not pregnant.

If your blood tests where negative, they can do another one 72 hours later, to see if your hgc levels have gone up at all. So a negative blood test isnt always a negative! My first 3 blood test (over a span of 2 weeks) where negative, yet the preg tests (about 12 of them!) where all positive. My 4th blood tests revealed i was 5 week pregnant (a week after i got the negative results!)
Good luck, i wish you all the best, i know how you feel. My pregnancy turned out to be ectopic, after all that, so i had it removed two weeks ago, along with a falipian tube.
Stay positive!!!!!

I went through the same situation although my fiance' s sperm count was less than 5%.
I am however 17 weeks pregnant so it could be possible that you are pregnant.I will keep you in my thoughts.Have another blood test done.
Good Luck :o)

As far as i know, a positive is always a positive, but a negative result can be wrong. Here' s hoping !!
