Should I feel stupid calling my OBGYN office and asking for a blood test?

I feel like a home preg test should be good enough but my HG levels are never high enough to read can they test the blood even with really low HG and still tell I am prego if I am only a few weeks along!

  • No... if you feel like you are pregnant call and ask for the blood test. If I wouldn't of called I wouldn't of found out I was pregnant. There is never a stupid reason for calling the doc when it comes to pregnancy (thats what my obgyn says)

  • From what I understand a blood test should be able to tell you sooner then a HPT
