Pregnancy Bloodtest
Hi there,

I went for a pregnancy bloodtest to Lancet without being referred by a GP. So I just want to ask about the results on the bloodtest, should we add +- 2 weeks to the bloodtest result to establish how far along I am. So for instance, if the bloodtest indicates I am 2 weeks, should I add 2 weeks, which means that I am actually 4 weeks pregnant???

Your help will be apprecaited.
