Reassuring and rel: Samantha there is nothing you can do at the moment.
The most important thing is that you relax and keep calm till those lab results arrive.
Again my recommendation is do not worry in advance and continue following your OB treatment.

Discrepancy: Blood tests for pregnancy hormone come back positive, before the baby can be visualized on ultrasound. Repeating the ultrasound in two weeks will reveals a heart beat and an crown rump length, which will enable the doctor to determine the gestational age and the due date.
