Im currently 5 weeks pregnant. I've done 4 tests all very positive. I went for blood work yesterday and the results went to my doctor today. Is it normal for a doc not to tell the results over the phone? they want me to come in so that the doc can talk to me. Now I'm nervous..what does this mean. The doc did make an appointment for me for a prenatal checkup. I guess I may be getting nervous for no reason but I was just wondering why I would have to go in for them to tell me the results.

Dee, I wouldn't stress too much over it. A lot of doctors won't discuss any results over the phone. There is too much of a risk that they aren't actually talking to the patient. And HIPAA guidlines prohibit them from giving info to anyone but the patient.
