I GOT MY RESULTS....!

Hi Everyone,

I called this morning and the receptionist said the doctor has to approve the results of my Quantitive blood test before she can tell me if I'm pregnant or not. He was out on an emergency, so I hung up. Well, about an hour later, the nurse called and said "though the doctor isn't in, I'm gong to tell you"....My HCG is 5 (Which she considers negative). So I pointed out to her that 5 is borderline. There are charts online that say "BELOW" 5....All of a sudden she changed her tune and said, "You should wait to hear from the doctor".....So I am borderline pregnant. I went online and the chart said, 3 weeks from your last period, your hcg should be 5-50...And my last period was EXACTLY 3 WEEKS AGO! Should I keep my hopes up, or consider this a negative??

Help please...

Hugs,

Donna

Hi Cathie,

Thanks for your reply....Here is the link where it tells you I'm borderline. My HCG was 5, and my last "weird" period was 3 weeks ago. Funny thing is, my breasts started getting bigger AFTER this weird period almost ended, usually it's before your breasts get bigger.

Will keep you posted.

Hi Ladies,

Thank you for your positive thoughts and advice...I am feeling kind pestimistic, sad, and doubtful this is going to turn out to be a pregnancy :-(...I used an online calculator, and this is what it said: Please see what you can make out of this...

knowing I had 2 faint positives HPT's (very "thin" pink lines) on 5/16 and 5/17 it wouldn't show on an HPT the day I conceived (see below), would it? It was "First Response", (the one that shows 4 days earlier) And I had a blood test on 5/21 (so maybe my numbers doubled since then?)

You are 3 weeks, 1 day past your first day of LMP (last menstrual period)

Your baby is 1 week, 1 day old

LMP: 5/2

Conception: 5/16

Due date: 2/5

Or either that I got pregnant in April, and I'm 7 weeks, but then my levels of hcg would really be too low...uh!!

But one question please: How soon can an Quantitive blood test detect HCG when you conceive?

I hear you can ovulate anytime, so I don't know....Talking to the doctor tomorrow morning....Will let you know.

Hugs,

Donna
