HCG Levels
3
Thu, 03-19-2009 - 11:39am

I had labs done Monday to confirm pregnancy and get HCG levels. 3:30 Monday my level was 119.


3:30 Wednesday my level was 223.


This puts me on a lower end of the scale. Should I be nervous? I go tomorrow morning for another lab.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

I really don't have a doc yet. Just going to the OB office for labs and then a nurse calls me. I don't see a doc for a long time. Even my first visit on April 9 will be with a nurse practitioner or PA.


I just thought that graphic showed it to be low. I'll try not to think about it much. Tomorrow I'll be testing in the morning vs late afternoon; so the increase may be even less of a percentage.

Paula, you are right in the normal range, so I wouldn't worry. The standard is 2 to 3 days, you are right at 2 days, so that is really good. I know all too well how hard it is not to worry, but personally I think your numbers are really good.
