Hi girls, thought I'd update you on my progress.
Today I went to my doctor. I told her I'd got my bfp- and she said no need to do a blood test. Said she would only do one if I started spotting. Is sending me for a dating scan in 2 weeks (I'll be 7 weeks then) to see how many weeks- I can tell her im 99.9% sure im 5 weeks but said just to be sure. Then antenatal blood check at 12 weeks and US after.
Gave me some info in what to eat, told me not to stress, congratulated me and sent me on my way.
Did anyone else not need a blood test to confirm?

No I definitely did bloods. But a faint line is a faint line.. Maybe test again in a week to reassure yourself but it sounds good to me xx congrats xx

I'm sure I've had blood tests early on with all of my pregnancies..
Because they don't just check your hcg but other things aswell.
With my previous dr (because I have moved) she still did a pregnancy test first, with this new dr she only took my word for it..
And really waiting a bit longer for an ultrasound isn't a bad thing although the wait is annoying because if it happens to not be as far as you think you won't be upset about not seeing a heartbeat.. The wait for the ultrasound is almost as painful as the 2ww..

I am a little it confused as to your docs approach. If you know your dates why do you need a dating scan? It seems odd. I didn't have a scan until the NT one at 11 weeks. Once I got the confirmation on my blood test I also had bloods run for stds and iron and a whole lot of other stuff as well.

I didn't have any bloods done, went into docs when I was 8 weeks and he did a scan then and that was about it!

She said she would do a dating scan as "some women are further along than they think as their cycles can be a bit all over the place". I got annoyed at her, I know my body and have been studying it June and July when we started TTC.
Thanks to the other girls also for their experiences, seems it's who you get on the day.
