You may get a negative test as what is being tested is the hormone produced to maintain the pregnancy until the placenta is fully formed. The placenta is formed by about 13 weeks and HCG gradually reduces. some may still be detectable but a negative test does not mean you are not pregnant.

How many weeks does it take to know that your pregnant?

This will generally depend on the test that is used to detect a pregnancy. Blood tests are more accurate in that they can detect a pregnancy earlier. As soon as two weeks after a missed period, blood tests can detect levels of Hcg (the hormone pregnant females produce). Urine pregnancy tests generally do not detect a pregnancy before the 6th week because sometimes it takes that long for Hcg levels to rise to the point where a urine test will be sensitive enough to detect it.
