Re: I need some good vibes/thoughts/prayers here! - Monday update

I beliueve the general rule is it should double every day or so...according to info i am going to cut and paste, it doubles on average every 30.9 hours, until the 8th week. I am also including a table of hcg values..you will notice the HUGE variance....

p. 108 "Normal hCG Levels in Early Pregnancy"
"HCG is detectable in the blood serum of approximately 5% of pregnant women by 8 days after conception, and in virtually all the rest by 11 days. HCG rises progressively from conception. Levels double on the average, every 30.9 hours until values reach 6500 mIU/ml (6,500 IU/L) at approximately the eighth week after the last menstrual period (LMP). After that the rate of rise becomes individualized, peaking between the 60th and 70th day (9 to 10 weeks) LMP. HCG decreases slightly between the 12th and 16th week post LMP, and then remains constant until birth. "

PREGNANCY STATUS SERUM hCG LEVELS

from conception from LMP (mIU/ML or IU/L)
7 days 3 weeks 0 to 5
14 days 28 days 3 to 426
21 days 35 days 18 to 7,340
28 days 42 days 1080 to 56,500
35 - 42 days 49 - 56 days 7,650 to 229,000
43 - 64 days 57 - 78 days 25,700 to 288,000
57 - 78 days 79 - 100 days 13,300 to 253,000
17 - 24 weeks 2nd trimester 4060 to 65,400
25 wks to term 3rd trimester 3640 to 117,000
After several days postpartum nonpregnant levels (<5)"

Re: I need some good vibes/thoughts/prayers here! - Another update

Thanks everyone. Updated the original post with the latest results. I finally find some info online about the immune issues I have (clotting disorder) - with dd, I couldn't find any info on it at all, but now I have found some great links & a forum & am working my way thru the information. I think I should probably be on some additional meds, but my doc wants to wait until the lab work comes back... I'm kind of stressed cause I think I should be insisting on the meds, but I just don't know enough yet about it all to argue what they think is best. I understand what their reasons are for waiting, so I just need to educate myself a little better to figure out if I agree with that or not or if there is different info I need to bring to them.

Please send more vibes/prayers/thoughts I'm on the rollercoaster again, one minute daydreaming about this baby & the next convinced it's probably not going to happen. Trying to stay positive though.

I hope you have a healthy pregnancy! I have had five m/c s so I know how nerve wracking it is wondering and waiting. I hope you get wonderful news at your next doctor's visit!!!!!
