Uncertain: what was the sequence of these tests? If the last 2 are negative, it is negative. if the last one was positive, positive. In pregancy the HCG goes up;, if there is a blighted ovum the HCG goes down

With a blighted ovum, hCG can continue to rise because the placenta may grow for a brief time, even when an embryo is not present. For this reason, an ultrasound test is usually needed to diagnose a blighted ovum to confirm that the pregnancy sac is empty.

Unlikely.: The urine pregnancy tests are quite accurate. You can repeat another one to be sure but it's practically impossible for you to be pregnant with a normal urine pregnancy test. Consider any recent changes such as stress or weight changes or medication changes.
