Blood test positive - but low
22
Tue, 08-10-2010 - 11:52am

Blood test positive - but nurse said we should be cautiously optimistic - my number yesterday was 39 and they usually like to see a 50. Go back tomorrow for a repeat blood test.....and viability ultrasound scheduled for early September.....

Oh god - another 24 + hours of this craziness.....

But for now - Happy me - Scared me - nervous me ! WOW :)

Hugs, Jasmine

Jasmine,
I am so very very excited for you! I have faith that you are like me and just slow to start the rise in numbers but once they take off you will see there is nothing to worry about! You have been through too much for this baby or babies (Emma told me you are going to have two)! I can't wait to hear great news from your next blood test! Wishing you the happiest, healthiest, and stickiest pregnancy possible! Looks like this board may be looking for a new CL before long! If you end up with two healthy babies you are going to be one busy momma!

Hey Sunday! I know!!!! Isn't it crazy ?! It reminds me of when I was first pregnant with DS#1 - My doctor said, yes, the test is positive but I wouldn't get to excited just yet....blah blah blah......it was so disappointing and I left there wondering if I should be happy or what.

My mum has been on the internet all day and called numerous times to agree with what you said about numbers and ranges - it seems like the "normal" level varies quite a bit and that what counts is what it does every 24/48 hours ......I am feeling hopeful for now and just basking in the oh my goodness - I AM PREGNANT part of it all.

What would I do without you all?!

Hugs, Jasmine

Hey there! So nice that you still lurk around here and yes, I bet you will be back soon. I very much remember you and when you got your BFP - wow - time sure flies doesn't it!?

Thank you so much for thinking of me and being here to celebrate with us.

Hugs, Jasmine

LOL :) You are too sweet - and little Miss Emma is going to give my DH a heart attack ! The first thing he asked is "when will we know how many are in there?" hee hee - he might have to get used to that idea :)

Thanks for the reassurance about numbers - I have been doing a bit of research today and am feeling cautiously confident that it will all be okay.

Hugs, Jasmine

Oh what would I do without my fellow mama's cheering me on and doing the happy dance for me? Thank you for your prayers - I am lucky to have you all!

Oh Amanda - what a great step to finally make after all this time! Thanks for sharing your numbers with me - makes me feel more confident about tomorrow.....

I plan on going tomorrow a.m. early - so hopefully they will get back to me before they close at 4:30 p.m.......will be very busy with soccer and amusement park with my little guys and nieces which will help distract me nicely! Don't worry - will stay away from the roller coasters and bumper cars loL!
