Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am eight weeks and three days pregnant with no morning sickness and no food aversion. I am experiencing dizziness, increased appetite, tender swollen breasts (up a cup size), and fatigue. I went in and got blood work done recently. Everything looked good except my HCG levels were at 14610. It was flagged as abnormal but I have not heard back from my doctor yet about those symptoms. I just want to know what this means. I recognize that is lower than the average but not so low that I have miscarried. My lack of morning sickness is stressing me out, I am just hoping someone can clear that up a little. Am I maybe less pregnant than I thought? Am I in the early stages of miscarriage? I was hoping this blood work would clear things up for me but they have just led to more confusion.

Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

I have gone through your history and report from the attached reports (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity). Yes your report is showing low beta hcg (human chorionic gonadotropin) but if your pregnancy is healthy at eight weeks, no need to worry about morning sickness and beta hcg level.

Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.

Good luck. Regards.
