This is my first pregnancy, so I am not up on all the baby "lingo". Had blood tests yesterday and the nurse called me back to say my levels were at 400. She said that was not high enough to tell anything and that I needed to come have blood drawn again on Tuesday.. what did she mean by "anything"? Could I not be pregnant or does this have to do with telling how far along I am? I have very irregular cycles; my last on being the beginning of April. Any help would be much appreciated!! Thanks!
I'm going to assume she probably meant "400 isn't high enough to see anything on an ultrasound", but I may be wrong. As far as I'm concerned, 400 isn't too low for being 4weeks 2days. They're going to check your bloods again to see if your levels have progressed
Congratulations by the way xx
I think what she means is that your still so early they want to check you again after a few days to see if your HCG levels are rising. They are very low at first and depending on when you ovulated will make a difference. Do you know when you ovulated?
You are pregnant but too early for them to do a scan..they wouldn't see anything. Are they considering you high risk or have you had trouble conceiving?
Thank you for the responses!!
After coming off the pill about a year ago, I only had 1 AF on my own. 2 were brought on by provera before I tried the vitex. This also means that I have no idea when I ovulated.. I tried charting for a while, but I never saw any changes, so I stopped.. I don't see why I would be high risk, except for the fact that I had a fibroid removed 2 years ago along with an ovarian cyst.
AmericanHoney- I live just a few miles south of you in the Garner area!
