Blood test for pregnancy came positive is blood test 100% accurate and will i see a baby in the ultrasound?

Blood test for pregnancy came positive is blood test 100% accurate and will i see a baby in the ultrasound?

Only if you're good!: That is to say, good at interpretation of scans. I assume from your question that this was an early measurement, and you just missed one or two periods. If so, it will take an expert radiologist to see the developing fetus. You will be able to see a lot more after 4 or 5 months, and it doesn't look much like your baby for about 7 months. Nothing is 100% in medicine. ...Read more

Is it likely to get a positive blood test for pregnancy at 8 dpo?

Patience.: A blood test isn't needed. There's no need to rush. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

More accurate: Both tests search for HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin, the hormone produced by the fetus. A blood pregnancy test will tell you the exact level of the hormone and can be detected at much lower levels, therefore giving an earlier result. A urine pregnancy test is only positive or negative the quantity of HCG in the blood pregnancy test can also help determine how far along the fetus is. ...Read more
