    What a traumatic day me and my husband have had. I had an early scan today as I had some spotting, just a tiny amount but was reffered anyway. The nurse took some details and asked when I last did a pregnancy test. I told her the GP did one 2 weeks ago. She said she would do another one so I gave her a urine sample. 10 minutes later she called us in and said she was very sorry but it was NEGATIVE! She said my body had absorbed the baby and so I would'nt have a scan as there was no HCG and so no baby. We were devastated.:cry:. I told her I still had symptoms and so she did a test in front of me and again negative. I could'nt believe it. She said I must have a stomach bug but I told her I had felt like this for weeks. Just to humour me she got a different brand and tested again and this time:bfp:! The emotion we went through was unbelievable. She then did a scan and there was an 8 week 3 day baby with a strong heartbeat. She said the faulty tests would be investigated and she was sorry. Somehow sorry just doe not cover it. I am still shaking. Anyway it all turned out good but what a day!:wacko::coffee:

    Oh my goodness! What a day for you! Glad everything turned out ok for you.

    I wonder if the tests were old or faulty?

    How awful for you...sometimes tests are negative as you get further along...the very concentrated hcg just doesnt pick up...although adding some water to your urine and testing again (now sample is more dilute) can then give a BFP. Sorry you had such a horrible time...but at least the day ended well. Happy and healthy 9months xx

    Wow, that's awful. I'm so pleased it had a happy ending but I would be so upset to be told that! You're right 'sorry' doesn't even get close! Are you going to complain or anything?

    Omg I could cry for you! Its one thing saying its a negative test (as it was) but to then sit there and explain what happened to your baby etc before double checking and scanning you is unbelivable!

    So so glad it worked out well in the end and you must be so relieved, take some time out tonight to calm yourself down and have some you and hubby time as your endorphins must be surging after all that today! Wish you all the best xxx

    Oh my gosh!! That would scare me as well! She should have been a little more sympathetic anyhow considering they thought you lost the baby! How rude and inconsiderate some people can be! I am so happy for you and I hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months!!!

    That is unbelievable!! Congrats on the good news though. I guess everyone makes mistakes, but that's a pretty HUGE mistake.
    Good luck to you!

    Thanks everyone. Feeling a bit calmer today. I just keep thinking about other people that could have been told they were not pregnant with these faulty tests and actually were. They could be out drinking etc not knowing they actually are pregnant. I think before they give someone devastating news like they gave us they should make it policy to double check. If I had not had symptoms I would not have questioned it and would have thought I was not pregnant anymore. You just trust what doctors and nurses tell you. Hopefully they will all get recalled and they can re test anyone they told had a negative test.
    We are just so happy to have a so far healthy pregnancy. This was a surprise baby and it made us both realise how much we want him/her. Looking forward to my next scan in 4 weeks.x

    Omg! How awful. I'd put in an official complaint if I were you. Can't imagine what you must have gone through!
