Too Late For Blood Test to Determine Miscarriage??

Hi Smile I think I miscarried three nights ago. Sad IF I was pregnant, and did miscarry, how long after would a blood test know for sure? I made an appointment for tomorrow, but that would be 4 days later. Is that too late? ...Especially being only a week prego, could anything actually show in my blood that I was? thanks!!

Here is the deal =)

You are never one or 2 weeks pregnant 'medically'.

Right when you miss your period, you are already considered 4 weeks pregnant.

The reason is because we cannot know when you concieve, but we can know when you had your last period.

IF you were infact actually pregnant, a urine and blood pregnancy test would show positive for at least 2 weeks.

thankyou for replying Smile -- I knew when I concieved, and my peroid wasn't due quite yet. I thought there may not being enough hcg levels that early, therefore making a home prego test negative? I started bleeding a day before my period was due ( which doesnt say much) and then the next night is when all the things happened thinking I had miscarried. That is why I was curious if a blood test would show that I was...since the home test was neg. thanks!! Smile

Then how did you ever know if you were pregnant in the first place?

What happened that made you think that you were having a miscarriage?

It sounds as though your period may have just come a day early but, as cairfairy said a pregnancy test will show positive after a miscarriage if that is what it was.
