I've been taking home tests once a week for 3 weeks since I missed my period, and I have all the symptoms but the test is negative.

First pregnancy of mine was aborted because baby didn't have heart beat. After three months I became pregnant. But in 26 weeks I was delivered of my baby. Baby lived for ten days. Now we waited for next pregnancy for 11 months. I had my periods from September 23. Now I have missed periods for a month and a half, but my pregnancy test shows negative. Except vomiting all symptoms are there. I have done urine and blood tests but it shows negative.
