I got a BFP yesterday, and by BFP I mean a line that’s not as dark as the control line but you can see it 😉 But my Dr’s office said I didn’t need to come in for a confirmation, they’d just schedule a prenatal wellness appt in the next couple of weeks. To me that seems odd…? Has anyone else had this happen??

This is what my doctor does. they say that peeing on a stick at home is just as aaccurate as what they do in the office (unless you have a blood test). Congratulations!

@penguinsaremyfriends: Ok! That makes me feel better then, I guess I was just thinking that the Dr would want to make it “official”!

Most physicians do this. It’s when you have a history of issues whether getting or staying pregnant that they confirm with bloodwork.

My doctor had me come in for a blood test to confirm it.

I waited till I was about 6 weeks to go see the doctor. They did a urinalysis and an impromptu (vaginal) ultrasound. It was neat to see the little sac!
Confession: Before I went to my first appointment, I took random pregnancy tests just to make sure that I was “still pregnant”. It’s such a surreal feeling. Congratulations!

No blood test for me or confirmation. Just the 1st appointment. Congrats!

AHHH!!! YAY!!! (sorry been stalking you on the TTC/TWW BOARD) my doctor did the same, but since my last pregnancy ended in a MC, the next time we get a BFP (after the wedding…HOPEFULLY RIGHT AFTER!!) my doctor will monitor me more closely.
My advice: invest in an EPT….they are JUST like the test at the office….that should ease your mind a ittle bit. when is your appt scheduled for??

Thank you to everyone for the congrats, I really appreciate it!! DH and I are over the moon (and in a state of shock since we’ve had so many months of BFN’s!).
@MrsStrawberry24: Thank you for the advice! I think I’ll do just that. I have a friend who is halfway through her pregnancy and she offered me her extra clear blue digital (since she obviously doesn’t need it!) so I might take that tomorrow when I see her. Seeing the word “PREGNANT” would make a big difference! I don’t have one scheduled yet, I was told this morning I’m supposed to go meet with the insurance/billing lady at the hospital where my Dr’s office is and then they’ll schedule my first. Not sure which day I’ll go, today or tomorrow…

Yaaaaaay!!! How exciting:)

Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!!! So excited for you! (The Yes’s are because you are PREGNANT–not for confirmation of the blood test)

First, congrats!! Second, most doctors’ offices around here (Boston) won’t do a blood confirmation test. I got a blood test and a repeate 3 days later but they only did this b/c I had a prior miscarriage.

As for the confirmation at the doctors, my understanding is that it is normal for them not to want to do anything further. False positives are very unlikely so they don’t really feel a need to do a further test if you’ve gotten a BFP at home.
