this happened twice:

- nearly no-risk exposure
- tested NEG @ 10 weeks
- the CLINIC called ME to come retest @ 13 weeks
- tested NEG @ 15 weeks
- clinic called me AGAIN to retest last week @ 26 weeks
- haven't gone yet (it has been 27 weeks now) b/c I keep wondering WHY do they keep calling ME to remind me to come in and retest!? (why do they even have my info laying around???)
- I was told @ 15 weeks that I was OK but now I'm being told to come in again!
Are they just being super-conservative and following the 6month guidelines?
I know conclusive = 3 months and I trust my original results, but what are they doing??????

I guess the disclaimer from Teak is reassurance that no 6mo test is needed! =D
