Is it expensive or hard to do a home pregnancy test?

No. You can pick up a home pregnancy test at the drugstore and all it takes it peeing on a little stick. It measures a pregnancy hormone that is found in your urine. The tests are the most accurate on the day you miss your period or later. It is sometimes easier to read the ones with smiley faces or plus or minus signs rather than the 2 blue lines.
Neither. Home pregnancy tests are reasonably inexpensive (under $10) and are very easy to interpret. They require you to hold the test device in your stream of urine briefly, wait several minutes and then interpret the result (which is very straightforward).

Unlikely. Did you use the same brand for all 3 tests? I would use a different brand of pregnancy test to confirm the negative result. If you're negative again, then definitely not pregnant.

Nipples hurt, upper stomach is hard, been nauseaed, peeing alot been off of birth control for 3week taking 3 home pregnancy test all came back negative?

Trust the test. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. See doctor for your pain.
