I went to my first doctor apt (new doctor) at 16 weeks because i didnt know i was pregnant before. That was on the 4th of this month that they did all of my blood work and some aditional test for anemia. It has been almost 2 weeks and i havnt heard from them yet. Ive had an abnormal papsmear in the past that came back as nothing but they told me it would probably be abnormal everytime i have one and i havnt heard anything about that either. How long does it normally take to hear back from your doctor?

 at my office if they dont call you it means everything is fine. if you are worried call them and ask for the results.

At my doctor they only call if something was wrong. You could always call them though.

Usually no news is good news. Even if something came back positive or abnormal and it is not urgent they will make you aware at your next visit. It never hurts to call and double check :) Good luck to you!

Some offices call you with results. Some wait till your next appt.... It takes like a day to get the results. If they were going to call you they would have

my ob only calls if something bad shows up. 2 weeks is plenty of time for it to come back though. i'd think if you haven't heard anything, that's good news.  if you're worried, just call and ask.

ditto. i was 26 weeks with the first, 4 or 5 months with the second.  13 for the little one, but i had problems the entire pregnancy.  i knew very early with all 3.
