In brief: Probably not

Pregnancy tests are very reliable.
If you have had a negative pregnancy test and are not sure about the results, take another test in a week. Breastfeeding will not affect the results of a pregnancy test. It is not a good idea to get pregnant while you are breastfeeding. If you would like to be healthy and have two healthy babies, protect yourself from pregnancy while you are breastfeeding.
