    My Dr wouldnt give me one when I presented at 4 weeks with oodles of + HPT's. She told me it was a waste of my time.

    She nicely told me to wait until 6-8 weeks for a scan. A picture will show the real deal much more than a blood test. HCG levels can vary SO much (up to 50 thousand!) thats its near impossible to pin point a gestational date via hcg levels alone.

    I had my scan at 7w4d. I then got my blood test at 8 weeks along with my rubella etc and of course it came back sky high. I already had a picture to prove I am certainly pregnant

    Hcg really that early isn't for finding out dates etc its purely for making sure its progressing I dnt know where u go but where I live central coast every dr does it no matter what it's funny how so many other drs do things differently.
    For myself one reason is I dnt produce enough hcg so I need regular bt done to make sure progress is going well I was 3 mnths preg with my son now 2 and my hcg ws 8.8 when it should of been in the high hundreds thousands so that's also why I get it but everyone I know gets it done

    My dr didn't see the point doing it. My ob didn't send me off for one either. I've got blood tests to do next week when I'll be 9.5 weeks. I think ob figured there was a baby with heartbeat on the scan, that was measuring perfectly to my dates, so there was no reason to check hcg

    They only check your hcg if you have a reason. Like a history of miscarriage or questionable hpts. You won't need a blood test your definitely pregnant
