  • If they did a qualitative blood test, all they did was check positive or negative, you need a quantitative blood test to get the actual level... And usually that gets repeated about 48 hours later to see what the level's doing...

    Why did you get the blood work done, just to confirm the pregnancy?

  • Oh, okay. From what you're saying, I think it's highly unlikely they checked your hCG level then... My hospital usually posts the results of all their tests online as soon as they get them, so I can access them, so I'm not sure why you'd have to wait so long for your results. I'd just call and ask.

  • They usually won't give any info out over the phone. You will have to most likely wait until your next appointment and glucose and prenatal screening don't check hcg
