What exactly do you mean by "false pregnancy," and why did your 12 year old know about it?
Op: period was a month late and I bought a pregnancy test. He was with me and knows what it is. I then had to go to obgyn and he came with me as well. He knew my period was late; dh and I talked about it. He overheard and was excited about the idea. Now that the results came back negative, he’s sad.
Why didn't you keep the testing to yourself until you knew for sure and until you decided what to do about it? Surely you can hide such a thing from a 12 YO! It doesn't seem you thought this through.
I’m sorry things played out this way for him.
Oh God. Why would your 12 yo know about your pregnancy test?!?!?!
THIS times a zillion
NP. Some kids are unbelievably nosy. My 12 yo just went through my phone messages as I got up from the sofa for a minute. She just lost her own phone privileges but I know that she would do it again if she has the chance. It’s horrible but it happens.
Aren't home pregnancy tests like 99 % accurate?
Yes, they are. OP either built a ton of drama out of nothing, or had a miscarriage.
Op: kept getting negative results but period wouldn’t come. Doctor said I had to wait for blood work. he really thought I was pregnant.
I don’t know how old you are, but you probably were pregnant and miscarried early. It’s called a chemical pregnancy. Or you could be in perimenopause.
the above poster is correct though—home tests are very accurate these days. If you’re not getting positives, levels are so low that something’s wrong.
Get him a puppy.
This is so weird. You talked about your period and pregnancy testing to your 12yo SON? What on earth.
Is the capitalization meant to imply it would be less weird to talk about it to a 12yo daughter?
Dude, why on earth did you let your 12 yo find out that you were late and then potentially pregnant? You know your child and clearly knew he might be hopeful, right? What made you act so blasé about this with him?
