Pregnancy
Please don' t laugh at me. I am a mommy of twins and actually I am asking on behalf of a friend.

My friend is now 2 weeks late and she did a home test on Friday but the second stripe was very light, if ever visible. She went yesterday for a blood test and the test was negative.

Could the blood test be wrong? I know that the symptoms that she has can all be up in the mind (she says she feels pregnant). She has a 4 year old girl.

The blood is very accurate. It is unlikely that it is wrong.
