QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Just a question. I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests and they came back positive. Went to my family doctor and he did a urine test and it came back positive. Made an appointment with my OBGYN and they did a blood test and it came back negative.

My concern now is could the blood test be wrong because I am now going on 4 days late of my period and not for sure what to do. Any advise would be great. Thanks!!

ANSWER

It's possible (but unlikely) that the blood test results were a lab error, especially if your home pregnancy test is still positive. The other explanation is that you had a very early miscarriage. This is one of those unfortunate situations where we may have to wait to really know what is going on. Meanwhile, take your prenatal vitamins, live healthy, and think positive. Good luck!
