    As others have said most docs dont do blood tests to confirm a pregnancy.

    Mine does and both times it has caused nothing but week of worry with low hcg levels !

    I'm from Canada and its routine here that you get a bloodtest done to confirm your pregnancy. As soon as I told my doctor that my HPT came back positive, I had a bloodtest done that day and received the results within the same week to confirm.
