    Default Should I still go in for a blood test?

    I was 8 days overdue for af today so went to the dr who gave me forms to get the hcg blood thing done. After lunch I started to cramp more than I have been lately and I've started to bleed (was very lightly spotting before) so I'm guessing this is af showing up late or something went wrong ( had bfn.. Last pregnancy m/c at just a few days after where I am now). Anyways, just wanted to know what you ladies would do.. Do I still go for the test and make sure its not a m/c incase anything needs to be done or just guess its af arriving late and not go? I feel kind of silly now that shes here and going for the test.thanks in advance

    I read your post a few times trying to decide what I think you should do and I decided that yes you should get the test to see if it was a 'chemical pregnancy' ie m/c after a few days. That way you can see if maybe there might be an issue

    Thanks for that even one persons thoughts help. Thats what I was thinking and leaning towards. Guess there is no harm in getting it done right. Thanks again Marepoppin

    Definitely no harm in getting it done. If AF was 8 days late then if you were pregnant it could have implanted and then MC rather than a chem.

    I'm a huge believer that we are the best at knowing our own bodies, so I like to know where I'm at all the time
