  • I think you are prob pregnant then and the blood test was wrong. Because when I was pregnant with my 2nd I went to the doctor and I said I got a positive hpt and I was like are you going to do a blood test and my doctor said no because thoes are hardly ever wrong.

  • None are. After 12 weeks your HCG levels drop to non existent basically. So a blood test will not always show it. Usually they do the blood test but most doctors are going to urine tests. I hope you find answers. June 1st is tuesday so just wait it out.
