You could comfortably call in a week and they should be ready...

I had my blood test on Monday mid morning and my Dr called me after lunch today with the results! Thrilled to have it confirmed no matter how many hpts I have done. Hope you get yours back soon.

In Perth you normally get the results the same day if you go early enough in the morning - although this is through my fertility clinic and they are always marked urgent. Maybe they are just quick!

Isn't it awful waiting on results!

If I have my tests in the morning, they are usually back that afternoon ... or occasionally the following morning. Always within 24 hours though. This is with Laverty Pathology in Newcastle, NSW.

I had my blood test on Monday afternoon (2 days ago) called the Dr this morning and they're not back yet. They said to call again this afternoon.

Hoping they are in by then!

Decided to tell my parents once we have them, they are planning an OS trip in September/October so think its better to let them know sooner rather than later as I know my mum especially will want to be here original.gif
