Not at all!! I would def get a blood test. Sometimes nurses can be so cold and not understanding at all. Hope you get some answers soon :)

You're definitely not stupid, and you have a right to confirm what is going on before you make a decision to proceed...

FWIW, I always ask to speak to the same person in my dr's office--- she's a sweet nurse and if I only talk to her, I get consistent (and understanding) responses!

Ugh, my nurse at my first RE did this to me ALL the time! I was told to test with an HPT 12 days after my IUI. I caved on 11 DPO and got a BFP so I called her and she says "WHY did you test so early???" I was line, it's ONE day you freaking crackhead! Even if I tested ten days early, why on earth would you make someone who has been battling IF for four years feel so terrible on what they THINK will be the happiest day of their lives? Ugh, just talking about it makes me want to break her twiggy little arm in half. :)
