Blood-test results, HCG #

Hi everyone --

Okay, I had NONE of this done with my first (and only) child, so I am now trying to catch up on figuring out what this means but my HCG came back at 23,216, which the lab tech says puts me about five weeks. She also said they normally wouldn't do a second one at this point, but I have to somehow get through to the doctor on the phone to either confirm that or have him order another one.

I thought that number sounded inordinately high compared to what I've seen others post on the board so I looked back and found that most of you tested MUCH earlier than I did. (I told you, I'm a pessimist!).

So, that's what we know so far! Thanks again for all your support and believe me, I'm sending baby dust back toward North America with all my might!!

Best wishes,
T. Ann

I'm freaking myself out by reading on the net. If she really said 23,216 (I'm having to do this in French, which is not my forté, but I didn't think I misunderstood!) that is way too high, isn't it?? My only consolation is that she said "that puts you about five weeks, right?" which IS about where I am, so she must've thought everything looked okay!

I won't be able to talk to the doctor for at least another hour so I should just go back to work and quit agitating!!

Egad.

Thank you!

I literally just got off the phone with the doctor who says my number is just fine. Whew!

I will go in next Monday for a scan and consultation. :)

Best wishes to all --

Hi T. Ann!


OMG! Congratulations. I haven't been reading the board too much lately b/c I have been so busy, but I'm glad I came in today and saw your news! I wish you the best 9 months and a healthy happy baby!!!!

Hey Rosario! Have been thinking of you.

"Busy" is good when you're a freelancer (as I am too) so I'm hoping you're feeling positive and having a great summer. Check in when you can!

Best wishes,
T. Ann
