@KatyElle: Ditto on that.

BUT I have heard of women whose pregnancies never show up on HPTs. I’m not sure if it would never show up in a blood test – that seems very uncommon.

However, since your doctor clearly isn’t offering, why don’t you request an ultrasound just to be sure?

My blood work said I wasn’t pregnant the entire way through my pregnancy so there is a chance. They scheduled an US to check it out because every other urine test was saying pregnant/ not pregnant lol.

It’s happened to women before, have you ever seen “I didn’t know I was pregnant”?

I don’t think you need a new doctor. Seems a correct way to proceed to me (not that it’s THE way, but a way).

I guess I just must have unrealistic expectations from my doctor. Because if my doctor said “Well you might be pregnant or you might not, wait a week and come back” and didn’t give me an ultrasound I’d go to someone else. My life would be on hold until I knew for sure.

Def get some more opinions! I’m so sorry that you are tortured with uncertainty esp. with your hypochondriac tendencies!

It will all work out for the best in the end!

There is certainly a chance that is isn’t showing up on the blood test yet (and honestly may never will – for a very small group of people, like the PP, it doesn’t).

I don’t think you need a new doctor.  I think his plan to wait a week and re-test if you have no period makes 100% sense and would probably be the same course of action that the vast majority of doctors would take.

I had a friend with a similar issue. She and her husband were trying to get pregnant, and her period was late. She took a few home tests, and they came out negative. Since her period still didn’t come, a week later, she went to the doc, and they did a test as well. It also came out negative. They actually gave her some drug to encourage her period to start (I’m not sure what it was). It still didn’t start. So she went back, they did another blood test, and lo and behold, it finally gave a positive result. She had been pregnant the whole time, and the tests just didn’t show it.

If your doc did an ultrasound at this early stage, would it even show anything, even if you were pregnant?

I would go somewhere, where they would do a ultrasound! For me having diabetes, it is a MUST know ASAP. But either way, I would still want to know as soon as I could. If that doctor couldn’t let me know I would go else where, where they could.
