Why is one blood test positive and one negative for pregnancy?
I went to the ER last Saturday night for a panic attack. I've never had one before. All of my blood work came back normal except I was positive for pregnancy. Two days later I went to a clinic and paid $30 for another blood test. It came back negative. I had a period at the beginning of the month (around Jan 5). I am really upset by all of this because I don't know what's going on. Am I pregnant or not?
It's possible it's just to early. I had this happen to me. I had positive home tests but negative blood tests. 3 weeks later I went back to my obgyn for another blood test and it came back positive for pregnancy. I am now 33 weeks pregnant.
