Preferably but it could be positive before you miss your period.

A blood test can pick up a pregnancy as early as 10 days after you conceived. Rather wait till your last few days before your next period then do a blood test. i had one done 2 days before my period was suppose to start and it was positve.

good luck

I don;t think so, but also if your hormone levels are not e\very high the blood test may not pick up the pregnancy. HOwever i could be wrong. Do wait for the doc to respond or phone a pathology laboratory.
