Brief Answer:
B HCG VALUES NORMAL, ULTRASOUND WILL CONFIRM TWINS

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Congratulations on your pregnancy !!
Firstly, the B HCG levels vary widely from woman to woman after conception.
The normal range also is quite huge.
Your B HCG values fall completely in the normal range for a pregnancy.
They are not inordinately high, and there is no reason for suspecting a twin pregnancy just going by the B HCG values.
The normal range for 5 weeks of pregnancy ( you would be 5 weeks on 17-8-2013 ) is 2,580-6,530 .
However, with any form of ART ( assisted reproductive technology ) the risk for twin pregnancy always is high, and the confirmation is by a pelvic ultrasound ( transvaginally ) where the number of sacs can be seen.
Your doctor would be scheduling a scan soon, where this can be confirmed.
Also, progesterone itself has no impact on the B HCG , however if you are being given B HCG supportive injections, then they would affect the result.
Take care, and please feel free to discuss further.

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.
As I said, your B HCG levels fall in the normal range.
It is not correct to say that your chances of having twins are high based on this number.
Please have an ultrasound scan to rule out twin pregnancy.
All the best.

Brief Answer:
KEEP TEMPERATURE RECORD.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
It sounds as if you are having a fever.
Please measure the temperature with a thermometer at home, and if it consistently exceeds 100 degrees Fahrenheit, please consult your doctor.
Mild discomfort is common in the first trimester of pregnancy.
take care.

Mild variations in perceptions of sensations are normal in pregnancy,

Brief Answer:
VALUES ARE NORMAL, DO NOT WORRY.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Good to hear from you again.
Once more, I reassure you that the B - HCG values are within normal range.
They do not necessarily have to double, but they can be around 60 - 70 % increase every 2 days, which is normal.
Please do not worry.
Again , As I said earlier, B HCG values are not a good way to monitor if the pregnancy is progressing fine.
An ultrasound scan will be infinitely more helpful.
Take care.
All the best.
One thing that I can say from these values is that - the pregnancy is most probably viable and progressing well, as such values are most consistent with a normal pregnancy.

But even it is not double every 2 days 60 or 70%
Because mine is less than 50% double during 3 days

Brief Answer:
NORMAL VALUES.

Detailed Answer:
WHen the B HCG exceeds 6000, the doubling time is 96 hours, that is every 4 days.

Brief Answer:
Your concern and anxiety is natural

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Please feel comfortable in asking as many questions as you wish.
I am pleased to help you.
Your concern and anxiety is natural.
Some amount of pain, cramping and discomfort is common in early pregnancy, as the size of the uterus ( your womb ) increases.
However, on your scheduled checkup , please mention it to your doctor, so he can examine you in detail.
Also, drink lots of water, and take lots of fruits and vegetables, to avoid straining at urine or during passing motions.
All the best.

Brief Answer:
NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Nice to hear from you again.
Do not worry as actual penetration during intercourse would be harmful.
Mild cramps that occur after an orgasm in your dream should not cause any harm to you.
Also, do not worry about it.
If the cramps continue and do not subside ( normally they should go away in a couple of hours ), then consult your doctor immediately.
Otherwise, this is a normal phenomenon, and do not panic.
All the best for your next ultrasound.
Take care.

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Glad to hear from you again.
Congratulations on being 9 weeks !
Please understand that in most women, it is quite COMMON and NORMAL to lose a few kilograms of weight in the first trimester.
Inspite of eating well and having no nausea, it is alright to lose a couple of kgs.
You should start picking up weight gradually once you cross 12 - 13 weeks.
Please do not worry, as so much of worry and stress will harm you.
As long as the baby is growing well on the ultrasound scan, your weight is immaterial at this stage.
All the best, XXXXXXX
