Ok so can I officially say Im pregnant if I haven't seen a Doctor to confirm it?? help ladies

hey ladies so based on my late period (2 weeks) and 10 positive pregnancy tests... and all the discomforts of pregnancy.. but not a confirmed "YES" from a doctor can I go ahead and start telling my family? I havent seen a doctor because I dont have insurance yet.. wainting for AIM to come through. But I've seen lots of posts with women saying (they're pregnant, just did blood tests) I havent yet so am I wrong for spreading the news too soon.. HELP PLEASE need some mommy advice.. thank you

  • I never saw a doctor to confirm pregnancy. A positive test meant I was pregnant. Our docs don't see anyone til a minimum of 8 weeks unless you're deemed high-risk previously.

  • go right ahead! Congrats! A positive is a positive! My doctor never did a blood test, he just did a pregnancy urine test.

  • I have never gotten a false positive on a preg test. A false neg. is possible because of a lack of preg. hormones but not a false positive. You ARE preg.

  • yes you are officially pregnant. i don't think there is any point having a doctor confirm and i was so happy my midwife didn't do any pee or blood test to make sure i was really pregnant, they just took my word for it. lol. some people don't spread the news for a while but that's up to you! :) congrats
