Can you be 2 months pregnant with two false pregnancy test from the hospital around the time of conception and then 4 positive tests the next month?

Can you be 2 months pregnant with two false pregnancy test from the hospital around the time of conception and then 4 positive tests the next month?

Possible: A test may be negative if done too soon after conception.
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.
