Hi i recently took a pregnancy test because i was 2 weeks late for my period....it came back positive! Smile so i went to see my doctor n had a urine test there and it came back negative! i had my blood work done but am waiting for the results! n i have another appointment in a week at the doctor. my stomach is puffed out n very hard! n the last cpl of days ive had a pain in my sides n my ribs. when i told this to my doctor before the urine test he said it was because i was pregnant and my insides were moving up. i really want to be pregnant n ive heard of women thinking themselves pregnant. so i guess my question is can the doctors urine test be wrong? could i really b pregnant?

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

Urine pregnancy tests are not confirmatory and can give false results when the hormone HCG level is not detectable in urine.It might be possible that the urine sample which you had given at the clinic was not concentrated and so the result was negative.Also the symptoms reported by you are suggestive of pregnancy.
Wait for the Blood test result as it is a confirmatory test.

Wishing you All the best,
Take Care!
