|24-2-2012 - 1st Labs Back
||My mood while writing this blog:|
Got my labs back from my OB blood draw that I had yesterday... I am at 1049.6 and I am "3.9" weeks pregnant - anyone know if that's normal?
Reason I ask - I have to go back Monday morning at 8:45 to the OB to have a re-draw to see how the levels are progressing and that makes me slightly nervous as you can imagine - especially considering I lost the twins in December at 8 weeks.
I have a hematologist appt. next Friday afternoon for my blood work up, testing of clotting factors etc. and I am getting ready to schedule a sono to see "what's going on in there" for 2 weeks from today.
Just looking for a little reassurance about the hcg levels - not to familiar with them.
This just in - Doc called my levels are climbing 4,600!!! Next stop hematologist this Friday for my first prego work up followed by our MFM appt next Thursday March 8th. In the meanwhile, I am going to try to relax for the week!!!

- Saturday, 25 Feb A sonographer who was in my week posted this chart. Hope it helps ease your mind:
(Note) Most pregnancy tests use a decision level of 25 mIU/mL. If clinically indicated, patients with detectable levels of B-hCG between 5 and 25 mIU/mL should be retested after several days. Healthy postmenopausal woman may have B-hCG levels of up to 8 mIU/mL. The interpretation of positive hCG results requires caution. Consistently falsely elevated levels of serene hCG may infrequently occur due to the presence of heterophilic antibodies. If a positive hCG is suspect, we recommend using urine hCG (pregnancy test) for confirmation.

I can't seem to get it to post like a chart. If you go to my page and then click on my page in my friends network, click on Princessof Cannaan. She posted the chart as a blog. ryry ~pink~
- Friday, 24 Feb i believe there's a huge amount of variation amongst mothers. i know my levels were rather high and that they're higher with twins. low levels could mean that the pregnancy isn't progressing or it could mean nothing at all if you started out low in the first place. don't worry until you have to.

- Friday, 24 Feb I was told by my dr. that it's not the number that is significant (some websites say that you should be a certain number at a certain time or that if you're number is over this or that it's multiples). She said the part that is significant is that the number at least doubles every 48 hours.
