Lab work? — The Bump

Lab work?

This is my first pregnancy and I won't see my OB until I'm about 10 weeks, which seems like a long ways away.

Am I supposed to go get lab work done in the meantime to make sure everything is okay or just wait until the OB appointment?

  • Oh okay. I was just reading another thread about HCG levels and I was thinking oh I have no idea what my levels are.

  • A lot of the women who are getting lab work done have had previous losses or have had some fertility treatments. That is why they go for routine checks.

    Common reasons why people have their levels checked are: previous miscarriage/s, were receiving fertility treatments, some known medical issue, and/or experiencing spotting/bleeding. There are some that just have it standard in their doctor's practice, but they are the minority.

  • I guess I'm kinda nervous because I'm 6w2d and have no symptoms. I am wondering if my levels are low.
  • Check out the symptoms thread. Many others have little to no symptoms as well.
