Both pregnancies they didn't do a blood test to confirm, they just did one to check for disease and my iron levels etc.
In fact, with my daughter they did nothing to confirm lol
This pregnancy the Dr at least did a urine test.
Maybe it depends on your doc.
I'm 8 weeks and am having my blood test this week
Haha yeah, the urine tests are pretty accurate
Maybe in some practices they do it to be 100% sure. Who knows with doctors lol
Good luck vegan hope you feel better soon

Yeah, think it def depends on the doctor! Mine said the urine tests are really accurate and I have sore boobs and no period, so not any real need for a blood test. It did really annoy me though that she totally dismissed my concern that she was dating me at 6 weeks even though I know I only ovulated just over 3 weeks ago. Makes a huge difference IMO, especially with things like screening tests/scans and if they think I should be induced or not!!! Apparently, she said, they consider full-term to be 9 months 7 days and only let you go 10 days over before they intervene.
Anyway, have booked in to a different doctor tomorrow night and have spoken to a colleague at work who has recommended some obs, so feeling better about it all.
As for inducing, they will do it going on how you are coping physically with the pregnancy.
With my first I went 41 weeks +5 days. I was booked in for induction, but gave birth the day before.
They weren't all that concerned.
And if there's still any disputes about how far along you are it will be corrected during your pregnancy during scans and when you are measured at midwife appointments.
But I'd say she's counting from you last period
