Doctor Google..

Postby teriteri » Fri Apr 17, 2015 7:34 am

So ladies, i was bad and went on Google and typed in High HcG levels and now I'm totally freaked out. I go to the doctor today so that will ease my mind. But I was reading that high HcG can mean down syndrome. Now it can also mean, I'm further along than I think I am, or twins.

I know i shouldn't have Googled it, it never helps!

Any advice to calm this new momma?
Any one else do the terrible awful and Google symptoms?

I agree ive never heard of high hcg being indicative of DS... what are your numbers by the way?

Try not to stress... My betas were pretty high also pretty early on. I of course also googled it, and only thing that it mentioned was a molar pregnancy, but try not to stress.. until you see your OB just try to relax. I know mine were around 25K or so around week 4/5 . And guess what even with that high # we didnt find baby until week 6+ and I was behind by 3 full days.. so everyone is different and numbers cant really tell you the full story. Once you get to see your OB they wont go by hcg anymore and will go by your LO's progression and measurement to asses where you are and how the pregnancy is progressing.. Good luck!

Thanks ladies!

So i went to see the Doc on Friday, she just ordered a dating u/s and no blood work. The only reason I say that my HcG is really high because I got a line as dark as the control around 10dpo, which is normally early to get a positive at all let alone one so definite. The Doc did seem to worried about it though. I'm excited for the u/s and hopefully this one will stick. Im not having too many symptoms yet either, im extra hungry, tired and sore BBS but nothing too crazy! ..... yet.
