2nd Blood Draw and scheduled 1st u/s!
Tue, 12-07-2010 - 10:40am

I had my 2nd blood draw yesterday and the dr called me before 8am today to tell me that my levels have risen from 50 to 599! Well above doubling every 48hrs...in fact according to an online calculator that's a doubling time of 26.8hrs! Now I'm kind of worried about multiples...

Anyway, we scheduled my first u/s for Dec 27, and I'll be around 7wks then. I wanted to wait a little later so the baby would be a little bigger, but the dr seemed to want to see me sooner rather than later--he was trying to have me come before Christmas even!

My levels were rising very quickly, too. I would be very excited to have twins and get two for the price of one! Your doctor probably wanted to see you quickly to see if you might have twins. At least you'll know faster and won't have to worry for long. My doctor scheduled my u/s for ten weeks-she doesn't want to see me before that if I'm just going to miscarry anyway. I seriously can't wait for the day I have a pregnancy that leaves the first trimester and I can switch over to my midwife-unless I'm having twins, that is.
