BLOOD TEST TELLS
This is going to sound seriously dof, but I had a blood test done last week, and the doc called to confirm that it was positive - yippee yippee. Then she said that I am about 2 weeks along - can they tell this from a blood test? I am so tired of people telling me their opinions!!!!

You can get an approximate duration of pregnancy from a blood test, but it is more liekly that you are 4 weeks - pregnancy duration is counted form the last period not from conception.
