Congrats! GPs nowadays very rarely do another test to confrim you are pg. Most likely he will start your paperwork, chat about your medical history, discuss your healthcare preferences and...not much more! If he/she will want to do a test, they might prefer a 'fresh' sample! :wv

Congrats! My gp didn't even bother doing another test once I told her I'd done a test myself but I know this can differ from gp to gp. They do say that your best to use your first morning urine though as the doctors tests are not as sensitive as the ones bought over the counter. So maybe you should take a morning urine sample in with you. Congrats again! :o)ll

Ring & ask if you need to bring a sample. My Gp didn't do another test so bringing a sample would have been an unnecessary hassle. Also if he does do a test and it comes back negative, don't get upset as their tests aren't as sensitive as the across counter tests and that's why alot of doctors don't do test.
