Possibilities: 1. Are you actually pregnant and has this been confirmed by a doctor? If you are in fact 7 months pregnant then I am not sure why you are still taking pregnancy tests. 2. Are you using expired or nonfunctioning tests? 3. Are you misreading the tests results? 4. There is a rare phenomenon called the hook effect that affects certain pregnancy test.
