OK well I am preg. I took a test and it is pos. I have a appointment next week with the OB but no blood test...im confused about that. What do they do if there is no blood tes and just an appointment? Then the OB told me the 2nd appointment is with a RN. I wonder why did they stop the preg blodd test. ANy ideas, oh and I live in the US.

They have never given me a blood test unless i was having problems. Of course they do the normal pregnancy panel to check all my levels but not a test to see if im pregnant.

Hi - I also am in the US, and they did an HCG blood test a couple days apart with me to check if levels were rising correctly. I guess if you aren't having any problems then maybe they don't bother with blood tests. If you are unsatisfied with your Dr. and think they should be doing more, then you might want to switch. Good Luck!

I think that's nothing to worry about .. the blood test would only be to confirm what you already know .. but if you still feel you need one, you should talk to your Dr. about it, if that would make you feel any better --

I'm in the US and I'm 20 weeks along and I didn't get any blood tests until I was 13 weeks along, and they were all screening tests for STD's and anemia and things like that. I've never had an hcg level test or anything other than a urine pregnancy test. It's fine and means that everything seems perfectly normal. :)

i'm going to the doc on monday. just found out i was pg this past monday...i think i'm 3 weeks or so. but my doc said they're doing an ultrasound, blood test, and exam. i think if you have great insurance, they do the works. and i go to a large group practice with lots of docs and equipment.
