YES! Every pregnancy test is different and if the instructions are not followed 100% then there is a chance you could read a false negative. I suggest taking another test and if that dos not give you a conclusive answer or you are still unsure if the test is correct, consult your doctor for a blood test.

Has anyone ever gotten conflicting results from two home pregnancy tests where you urinated onto the stick on one and dipped the stick into a cup on the other?

There are several things that can contribute to a negative pregnancy test even if you are pregnant. Some medications can give you a false negative, the timing of the test can affect the results. If you did not follow directions properly; if you let the test sit for too long the results may read negative after a while. It is important to read the results within the amount of time given on the instructions of that particular pregnancy test you bought. If you did not perform the test properly (example: you drank a lot of fluids before taking the test, which can dilute your urine). Etc To ensure the best results: * Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip * Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test. On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines, a recent pregnancy or a chemical pregnancy.

I went to an amusement park possibly pregnant do you think all the rides could have killed the baby?

not likely if you were early in your pregnancy. if you were later in your pregnancy and all big, maybe but early on, either it is going to stick or not. i say, if it isn't strong enough to stick, then it wasn't meant to be. often your body miscarries for a reason. the baby may have had a genetic defect that made it miscarry.
