Got surprising news from obgyn/when to test

Posted by: Scarlett81 on Thu Nov 26, 2009

OK-So I posted my current situation on another thread-

basically, I've been getting very very faint lines on my preg tests-this is the 3rd one I've gotten. I got one last Friday (nov 20th), that Sat the 21st and today (the 26th). The thing is, I started with a brownish discharge Sat the 21st, and had bleeding and spotting this week on and off. It started pretty near my expected period-but it hasn't been like a period for me.

So I called the doc to see if I could get a blood test-I'd be on day 35 (even though I do have longer cycles). But they said they wouldn't give me one! She said they don't reccomend testing until 2 full weeks after you would miss your period!

This was news to me.

I know that if I m/c or still am-theres nothing I could do anyway. But I'd like to know once and for all if I am or if I'm not.

I have all the preg symptoms I got with my daughter. Its so weird.

Anyone else heard of testing this late???
