As a nurse, usually if there is a problem, they are more likely to call you than if everything is OK. Usually the physician signs off before the nurse calls with results (like a nurse can’t see if something is abnormal but whatever). As you know, offices can be busy. Unless you have a hx of gestational diabetes or other pre-disposing factors, I would try not to worry. If it was an abnormal test they would most assuredly get it to the doc and call you ASAP. In medicine no news is usually good news!

I would call again, because if you don’t get an answer today you’ll be preoccupied all weekend!

I would call again. Especially if they say they would have results by now.

When I worked in pathology I could look up results, but was not allowed to give anything out at all, I could just say whether we had the results or not yet, and no-one can give them out unless somebody qualified has authorised the result on the system.  So I’d say they have run the tests and they’re just waiting on someone to tick a box to say they can give the result out. If you called yesterday I’d say you’re fine to try again today.

Nope, call again. They should be calling you either way since you’ve already called again. Once per day is pretty reasonable.

lula0508 :  My OB’s office is the same. The nurse cannot provide me with the results until the dr has signed off on it. Typically if the dr hasn’t signed off on it that means he/she hasn’t reviwewed the results yet. Since you’ve called twice inquiring I hope they place it on your OB’s desk and get a timely response.

Don’t feel bad about calling. Doctors offices can get very busy and they could have forgot or the nurse forgot to give it to the doctor. I’m sorry you have to wait until Monday. Hopefully they will call you after they close today and have some time to catch up. Good luck.
