What happens now since I had a negative blood test after I had 2 embryos transfered after they were frozen?

I've tested w/ numerous different brands and I've had faint positives on HPTs for almost 3 weeks, 1 negative blood test. What could be going on?
3 positive tests: If u have had 3 even faintly positive tests u r pregnant but they should b becoming more strongly positive over time. This could be a blighted ovum or threatened/inevitable miscarriage.

I miscarried on 6/16 2014. I went to the dr. On 7/30- negative blood test. 8/7 negative home test. 8/16 & 8/17 positive test. How far I could I be?
Hard to be accurate: A pregnancy test will usually turn positive somewhere around 4 weeks (2 weeks after conception). So you probably weren't 4 weeks on 8/7, but became 4 weeks sometime between 8/7 and 8/16. So you're likely around 4-5 weeks. An ultrasound at 6+ weeks will give you a better idea. ...Read more
Longest cycle 35 days long. Last AF was 8/2. Today is 9/20 & still no AF. Negative blood test last week & negative urine test today. What's goin on?
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.
