I had a quantitative blood test done.
I thought after taking ten pregnancy tests, my doctor would immediately have me come in for a blood test! However, they just scheduled me for Jan. 18th and told me to start taking prenatal vitiamins and folic acid because they don't start seeing patients til they are 8-10 weeks pregnant!
Is that even normal?
I was supposed to, here you have to go to the womens clinic on the base (we're military) after you get a positive HPT to then obtain an obstetric referral (takes 7-10 days) before you can even call to make an appointment!
They usually give a urine test, and if that is positive they do a blood test. I was nearly 7 weeks before I even got a positive HPT so when I went on base I guess the urine test showed up really positive really fast because they didn't make me do a blood test.
