    Pregnant after many so many tries... now worried, confused.

    Hi All,
    I am a mother of one, (healthy baby boy born in 2005). Had irregular periods after that until Nov. 2011. Went to have pap smear done in Septmeber 2011, came back abnormal...had biopsy and leep done (dec 19, 2011). My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 2 years now and this past friday (May 4/5) i took a home test and it was positive! Well, actually took 3! But the 30th of April, I had a 4 month pap smear, from Leep, and I had told them I had not started my period; which would've been around the 25-27th of april, so they took blood and it was negative. I did have an appointment today, it was to discuss why I was not getting pregnant, but i called the office this morning explaining the three positive home tests. So, again, I went to the lab to have another blood test, this morning, and the results were: positive. but the nurse said my hCG levels are 262 and I have to go back Wednesday for another blood test and if the levels have not doubled then....?? Does this mean miscarriage? So worried, was extremely excited this past weekend, but worried that if the levels do not double then it's back to not being pregnant. Would the leep procedure be a cause of the low levels?
    Any input is appreciated!

    Congrats on your pregnancy. No, the leep would not cause low levels. Low levels are when the fetus simply isn't doing well and probably not viable. There is nothing you can do about it.

    Honestly, your 262 number is good. I know many women who had miscarriages had numbers under 100 on their first blood test and it was a pretty good sign of miscarriage. Not always the case, of course, but not the best sign of a strong pregnancy.

    Your numbers also depend on how far along you are in your pregnancy. I was in the mid 300's with my first blood test and it doubled every 24-36 hours. Only time will tell, but keep positive that things will be OK. Let us know what happens.

    Finally received results from 2nd blood test, and hCG levels were well over 600! Just praying the levels keep increasing, as needed.
