Hello,

If you think you might be pregnant, but had a negative HPT, plan on repeating the HPT a week later.  If that too is negative plan on seeing your ob/gyn for irregular bleeding.  

Best regards,

I know its hard to wait a few more days but some test have different hcg levels that they pick up.  So try on the 17th or even a couple days past that and you might get a different answer.  Good luck keep us posted.

That's exciting and confusing at the same time, but good luck keep us posted on your blood work.  Did you take 2 different test, sometime the levels in test are different and one will pick it and the other won't.  Good luck again.
