I just got an email from my mw and she said that my thyroid looks fine but admitted that it's not her specialty so I should see what my PCP thinks.
But, she said that my HCG "was really low though - 135." :(
So this is why my HPTs have been taking so long to show up and darken up.
I found some comfort in this page. These paragraphs make me feel like there's some hope:
By LMP, I should be 6 weeks on Friday, but I don't think I'm that far along because I know when I felt ovulation. We dtd on Christmas Day, so conception could have even been after Christmas if I O'd late (and that was my first cycle after the m/c, so it could have been whacky.)
This chart shows these ranges as "normal" ranges for HCG by gestational week:
- 3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml
- 4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml
- 5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
- 6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
According to that chart, I could be weeks (I calculated 5 wks, 4 days today) and still be in range.
Has anybody had "low" HCG and had a healthy pregnancy?
