Hi everyone can I join here? I have my first appt 9/20/2012. Did you all request bloodwork on your first appt or is that protocol at your doc? Last time I was pregnant I got no bloodwork on first appt??? Should I request it? Any suggesions appreciated.

This is the 4th time I've had my HCG levels checked. My doc wanted to see them get into the 2000s cuz then I can be monitored by US. I had a MC in June so I think they wanna make sure everything is progressing nicely, and so far it is

kinda jealous tho, a friend of mine found out she's pregnant the Saturday after I did and she's getting an US tonight! lol

Did they have any idea why you miscarried? I had a mc in June too but my doctor says "miscarriage is very common blah blah blah." Did you request to have your hcg checked at first??

They ARE very common. I could have got the tissue tested if I had saved it, but I didn't think about it at the time. I'm just gonna assume a chromosonial abnormality
