  • Not sure always just got a positve test. Every OB is different so it just depends on what you OB wants to do! Good Luckkkk!!!!

  • they'll do a urine pregnancy test, if that comes back still negative, they may send u for bloodwork. unless they have an ultrasound machine in office, they probably won't send you for one unless the blood pregnancy test comes back positive. how late are you?

  • If you just missed your period they prob won't do an ultrasound bc there isn't much to see, they may have you back around 8-10 weeks for an ultrasound to see the heart beating. And yes you will get pictures of the little pea. They probably won't be able to hear a heartbeat yet either. You will probably just get the blood and urine test to confirm whether or not you are pregnant.

  • the urine test test the level of hormones in your urine if high you are if not you probably not but you might have a low hormone level (common) but i dont know if they will do that or not does not hurt to ask.
    it is a little early for a pic/ ultrasound not anything there to see hart beats around 18 days after coneption

  • It depends on your doctor. I did fertility treatments, and we did the blood test twice to confirm. I started bleeding at 5 weeks, and they did an ultrasound just to make sure that everything was in the right place. They told me I wouldn't be able to see anything, but we actually could see the "yolk sac". It was so tiny like a little grain of rice. Hopefully if they do an ultrasound your doctor will be nice like mine and let you have an early picture.

  • they'll definitely do a urine test and it depends on the doctor but mine did a blood test as well. than the doctor will examine you and check your blood pressure and if your pregnant they'll do an ultrasound to see how far along you are. **Good Luck** :-)
