      Well me and my wife have been trying to get pregnant. And well, she is late by about 12 days now and we might as well have bought stock in home pregnacy tests. We have went through 6 tests and none of them have come up positive. She is having all kinds of signs that she is pregnat, but still no posititive test. It is killing us that we don't know. She called the doctor and she can't get in till Jan 13. Not knowing is about to drive her crazy.

      My question is, did you or your wife (for the dads here) show up on a home pregnancy test. She is having all kind of signs that she is, but the tests come up negative, what gives. She is driving me crazy in the process :eek:

      My wife showed positive on a pregnancy test with her being about two weeks late. I quess we got lucky because it was the first one she had taken during that period of time.

      And um, if you think she is driving you nuts now, just wait until she IS pregnant. That there is 40 weeks of PURE FUN!!! :p

      Patience my boy patience, start practicing patience now, cause you're going to need a tanker full for the next 20 years.

      It might be a little early for the 'changes' to register. Give it another week, enjoy Christmas.

      It's always good to see men get such possitive reaction when their lady says "I'm pregnant". Most men just go "WTF!"

      Listen to this guy!!!! Patience is a necessary virtue now, but you best store up a lot for when you run short after the wee one!!!!!.

      Albino is also right about giving the test time. I believe there is even a warning on the back that pregnancy cannot be detected for something like up to 3-4 weeks.

      Me I found out when my girlfriend was already three months pregnant :fire:
      Then she had it 3 months early :eek:
      In hindsight three months is not nearly enough to prepare for this life change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Skibug, when you do find out, you may want to wait on letting everyone know until a month or so after you are sure because if something goes wrong it can be tough on the Mom. There's no set rule but you may want to keep the news to just family until a little later.

      Our little guy is 4 mos and when I walked in the door the other day my wife says to me " I know why animals eat their young!!!!" Tough day honey? :D

      Yup. 3weeks for there to be enough hormone to show up. Relax. If she is pretty regular and is 3 weeks late, relax. She probably is. If not, oh well, next month.

      Ok she had a blood test done today and well nope, not pregnant. Oh well guess it's back to trying :D . I think she is just so worked up about this whole thing that it is making her body do some strange things. She wants a little one so bad. I would like to finally be called dad, but I am in no hurry to get it done right this instant.

      Thanks for all the replies. Don't worry when it finally does happen, I will be letting everyone in the world know my little one is on the way.

      Forget practicing patience and start practicing making babies because 40 weeks is a long time.
