If a hospital pregnancy test was negative but 3 months later I had a miscarriage, can I sue?

Question Details: I went to the hospital about 6 months ago for an unrelated reason and I mentioned to the doctor how I had been throwing up for about a month, so he gave me a pregnancy test which came back negative. Then about 2 months ago, I was rushed to the hospital with excruciating pain in my uterus and it turned out that I was miscarrying my 18 week old baby. As you can imagine, this has affected me a great deal emotionally. In 2 more weeks and my baby would've been considered a stillborn. I feel that if I was aware of my pregnancy things would've been different - I wouldn't been drinking, I would actually try to eat, etc., etc. Do I have grounds to sue, even if it's just to help cover the medical bills I have from the miscarriage since I have no insurance?
