And has been for 20 years.....I still haven't started but I am having so many symptoms of being pregnant. I have an 8 yr old and 6 yr old identical twins...I feel pregnant. I have had headaches backaches bloating constipation having to pee every hour and I have even thew up that yellow stuff that I have only threw up when I was pregnant.

Brief Answer: Pregnancy test can be false negative. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX You are absolutely right. Pregnancy test can show false negative results. You can get pregnancy confirmed OR ruled out with 100% confidence by one blood test: Serum beta hCG. Kindly get it done to know the real situation. Regards.
