Ok, I was just wondering if anyone out there has had this problem. I took two home ept tests within a few days of each other and both came back positive. However, my Dr did a blood test that was negative. I'm not on any type of fertility medication so to me this is rather strange to me. Any comments would be appreciated.

Go get a First Response HPT and use it tomorrow morning with first morning urine. If it is positive, then make another appointment with your doctor. It is possible that he did the qualitative hcg blood test, if he did it will only register a positive result if your number was above 25. What he should do is the quantiative hcg, this one gives an exact #, and there for a more accurate result. When I got my positive hpt my hcg was less than 25 and if my doctor would have done the qualitative test it would have said negative. If you take a First Response and it says positive, I would take that to mean that you are PREGNANT. Let me know what happens. Merry Christmas!!

OK, so I took another test and this one also came back positive. My Dr was a total jerk and refused to give me another test. He claims that one blood test was enough. SOOOOO.... I got another Dr. Had some more blood work done (waiting on those results) and have been scheduled for a sonogram later in the month to make sure nothing else is going on.

I am so glad to hear form you, I was wondering what had happened. It is really rare to get a false positive hpt. I am glad you found a new doctor. Is the test line darker on the one you took recently? I don't understand doctors sometimes, what would have been the harm in repeating the blood test, what does he care? All I can think of is that he didn't want to be proven wrong. Let me know what happens!

Just got a phone call from my Dr. She said that I am pregnant. I'm about 7 weeks along. Ladies, PLEASE listen to your body and intuition!!!!!! If I had listened to this other doctor two weeks ago I would have continued on my medication for RA which would have possibly put my pregnancy at risk.

I am so excited for you! I knew it! Are you going to call the other doctor to rub his face in it? lol. Do you have any other children? I am 11 weeks 1 day pregnant with our second child. Have you told your hubby yet?

LOL! I sooo wanted to rub it in his face but no. This will actually be my third child. I have a 10 year old and a 5 year old. This pregnancy was a BIG surprise. (well shock would be a better word!) I was told I wouldn't be able to have any more children because of problems with fibroids and the medications for my rheamatoid arthritis. We're both very excited about it though. Gotta love God's little surprises :)
