Beth - January 19

Sorry to vent on here I am just so mad!! I went to my first dr visit on Jan 7, they sent me to the lab to get blood drawn. I called back the following week to get my results and they said that everything was fine. I asked what my HCG level was and they said "huh" oh we must not have gotten that one back yet. I called back yesterday (1-18) to ask and they said they still hadn't gotten it back yet. Come to find out later in the afternoon that they didn't even test for it. I asked the nurse why they didn't test for it and she said they never do. I told her I had NEVER heard of dr's not testing for HCG, especially when it is supposed to double like crazy, and yet how would they know if it was doubling or decreasing when they didn't test for it. I was so mad, I went to the lab and should have the results today but I am finding a new dr. There are other problems with him anyways. Has anyone ever had a dr that did not check the HCG levels?

My Dr. never told me mine, and nor did I ask for it. *shrug*

My doctor did not check my HCG levels. The nurse said they only check if they suspect a problem or if there has been a history of miscarriage.

Thanks for your answers Anon and Anne. So I guess it is not uncommon afterall. Everyone I knew made me think that it was the worst thing ever. That and everyone I have ever known to be pregnant has always had it checked on a regular basis. ..I guess I will take a deep breath and calm down :0) Thanks :0)
