I have a doctor's apt Thursday at 3 and i would normally go in for a blood test but this time I'm just going to take their test. I will be 4 weeks 1 day by then should their test be able to pick that up? I ask because i know their tests aren't like the home tests

From what I've heard they are actually LESS sensitive than home tests...

If you don't mind me asking how did you find out you were pregnant SO early. Did you use the dip strips? That crazy early at 3 weeks, 1 day right? I'm not bashing just wondering. Any who, congratulations to you and yours! And the other ladies are right most offices use the same as dollar store test which are very sensitive.

I've never had a problem with the doctor tests but i've also never gone in at 4 weeks before. If it's negative they will probably just do the blood test :)

I was 9 days past ovulation and something just said your pregnant test so i took a walmart 88 cent test and got nothing so i did a 5 hour hold and used  one of my FRER test and got a super faint line.

Oh ok. I have heard of people getting positive test at 9 dpo, I was thinking wow 6 dpo she must have super hcg, lol! Are you going to keep testing with the Walmart ones  before your appt?
