I've heard that pregnancy tests aren't supposed to be reliable after about 18 weeks because after the first trimester the level of hcg starts to drop off. So I'm not really sure why your doctor would continue to do pregnancy tests. Normally they only check urine for sugar and protein.Sometimes it can be difficult to find a baby's heartbeat. I've had several times during each of my three pregnancies where my doctor's almost didn't find it. As far as the ultrasound goes, I'm not sure what they saw. I would imagine that if there was something seriously wrong with your baby you wouldn't have been sent home. If there were something wrong your doctor would have scheduled an induction or c-section for you.

My good friend is a nurse at an OBYGN's office and she said that no doctors office would make you take a pregnancy test every month. There is no need to take a test if you have already been checked out and are said to be pregnant. She has worked as a nurse for 10 years and I think she knows what she is talking about so your story is a little fishy. Like V said, they test your pee for sugar and protein, but they don't keep doing a pregnancy test.

Hey Jessica, Arent you coming up on your due date? I wanted to check in and see how your appointment went. Like the ladies said you wouldn't be tested every appoinment once pregnancy is established. You pee in a cup every appointment but thats to test for protein and sugars in your urine that could indicate gestational diabetes. If they couldnt find a heart beat with an ultrasound that usually means the baby has passed. I dont understand with how far along you are they would have sent you to the lab. Usually lab tests are to determine hcg levels and if there is no heartbeat than they would most likely induce you to give birth to your baby and than do testing on the baby to determine what went wrong. Hope all is ok! And baby is still in there kickin. Let us know!!
