My Dr told me I was Pregnant but I am confused

So on Tuesday, I got the great news that we are pregnant from our Dr.  We were overjoyed.  It was a little odd bc I think that I was still having my period but the Dr put me on prometrium bc of my low preogest. levels .  I was told that I have to go in every 2 days to get an HCG test until my ultrasound.  When the nurse called me today to tell me that my levels are still going up, she said that I was one week pregnant.  Don't you have to be 4 weeks in order to get a positive test?  Sorry I am new at this and after all of my research it said that a positive test comes at 4 weeks?  Help...I am excited but confused LOL

 

Thanks!~

  • If you were really "1" week pregnant you would be on your period and hadn't even conceived yet. Not to mention you wouldn't even be producing HCG, the pregnancy hormone.

  • You asked this on the Nest GP board yesterday. Why are you still confused?

  • If the doctor is doing a blood hCG test it will show positive after three days. I've even seen a urine test show positive and the blood work come back showing they are eleven days along. I work at an OB/GYN office.

    Congratulations.

  • Maybe the nurse meant you are three weeks pregnant, but the baby is one week old after conception?

    I second this. I got a positive test at 3 weeks 4 days, and then got a positive a day later at the
    doctor's office. You could have also ovulated earlier than the regular CD 14. Congrats and good luck.

  • I'm sure she just meant you conceived one week ago, putting you at 3 weeks pregnant.
