hi hun, havnt experienced it personally, but i know they can happen, however they r very uncommon. xxx
Feb 23, 2010 8:29AM
i would say you can get a flase negatuve but not sure a test can pick up something that is not there? i would say not very likely....although i could be wrong! xx
Feb 23, 2010 8:41AM
I thought it was possible to get a false negative, but not a false positive? Like Newlook said, the test cant detect a hormone if it isnt there.
I've had a positive before and then a negative a day or too later, but that was because of a very early miscarriage x

Thank you i just need to get things clear in my head this is my daughter i have been talking about i am so shocked i didnt even knw she was active in that way, and to find out in the space of one hour that your 16 yr old daughter has had unprotected sex twice in 3 weeks is not good, and that the health service keep ti frm you that your child has been for the morning after pill, and then she goes and does it again.. im in shock dissapointed and scared for her x

my sil had a false negative, think its known as a phantom pregnancy as the hormone and symptoms are there, but nothing develops. xx
Feb 23, 2010 9:02AM
can we have those?? wow i didnt knw that
Feb 23, 2010 9:14AM
omg hun, i just saw ur last reply, u must be very shocked at the moment, hope things turn out ok for u all. xxx
Feb 23, 2010 9:26AM
Oh love. You poor thing xxxxxxxxxxxx
Its my understanding that you can get negatives that are false - i.e. a preggy test can be negative but there is still a chance you are pregnant, but I didn't think you could get false positives. As someone else said, if there is the hormone there to make a line - it will do. I don't know a lot about phantom pregnancies but I know these exist too.
Thinking of you xxxxxxxxx

false negatives are possible, but apparently it is impossible to get a false positive, a phantom pregnancy is something that occurs in the persons head, symptoms exist because the brain is telling the person they exist but hormones are a bit more complex and can't be produced spontaneously, counselling is usually given for a phantom.

Oh hun - I agree with the others - I have heard of false negative but not false positive. Thinking of you xx
Feb 23, 2010 3:22PM
I thought the same false neg possible but not false pos x x x
Feb 23, 2010 3:50PM
its not impossible,i got a false positive about 5 months ago,i posted the picture on here and everything it was a definate positive,went to the doctors crapping myself and she did a test that came up negative....until then i thought it was impossible too xxx

I've also had a false positive. I took a test at the dr's that was negative so I came home and checked the test and it was definately positive. We weren't ttc at that point but I was off the pill as I was being an egg doner and you need so many pill free months so we were just using condoms. I had sore boobs which I had with my first pregnancy so I took the test. There was no sign of me having an early mc and I got my period a few weeks later.

well we did a clearblue 4 hours ago.... and there it was again very faint and line but it was there myself my daughter and her dad saw it .... omg what are we going to do....
Feb 23, 2010 6:55PM
oh hun, really dont know what to say, but dont rush into any decision, discuss the options through with ur daughter, and support her no matter what she decides, i know it must be hard for u and ur probably still in shock but at the end of the day its her decision, u can give her guidance, advice and support but it needs to be her choice, u dont want her doin something she might regret later on with her feeling that she was pushed to make a choice she didnt 100% agree with. how does ur daughter feel about the situation? xx
Feb 23, 2010 7:05PM
Didn't want to r+r, just wanted to say I'm sending you a hug, I really hope that everything works out whatever the outcome x x x
Feb 23, 2010 7:23PM
she is keeping it..... so she is coming to join all the lovely ladies on here i told her how much support i have had... the dad has said he wants nothing to do with the preg he is too young?? she feels very isolated x i really appreciate all your replies xx
Feb 23, 2010 7:25PM
Sending hugs too, you must all be very shocked.
My young cousin got lots of positive tests and thought she was having a baby until she went for her scan and it was a molar pregnancy.
This is very rare but apparently more common in younger girls (she is the same age as your daughter).
I hope that everything works out for you all
Feb 23, 2010 7:59PM
What a shock to the system... I hope everything goes ok and as for the dad well... not worth it in my opinion. Too many men abandon young girls when they are the ones that helped make the baby it takes two! not all men though there r some good ones
Feb 23, 2010 8:27PM
aww hon what a shock. Maybe the dad will come around once the shock has worn off?
She is more than welcome on here

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
