Clomid does not give you false positives. Do you know what kind of blood test you got? There are two different kind of beta tests. One is a yes/no beta and the other gives a number. Anything over 5 pregnant, under 5 not pregnant. The yes/no beta will only register pregnant above 25, and if that is the test they did, then you may not have had a high enough level yet. I would call the drs office and ask what kind of test they did and what the number was.

Are your hpts getting darker? No af yet?

That is great! I know that the digitals are less sensitive, when I had my low beta last month I always got "not pregnant" on the digitals. It is also possible that you had a low initial beta (under 25) and the doctor read it as a negative. I will be saying a prayer for you. Keep us posted!

I definitely think you are actually pregnant. What kind of test did you use first? One thing I did to see if the my hcg was rising was keep taking the line tests to see if they got any darker.

I don't blame you. Maybe your office reads under 20 as not pregnant. That's very possible. Also, do you know if they did a qualitative or a quantitative? A quantitative would have told exactly what you have in your system. Qualitative is just a yes or no.
