Hi Mary

Dr. Phil, MD :

nice to meet you

Dr. Phil, MD :

How far along do you believe you are?

Customer:

nice to meet u too

Customer:

i dont really know exactly how many weeks

Dr. Phil, MD :

Well at that level you could really be any number of weeks after six weeks

Dr. Phil, MD :

So the earliest you could be is 6-7 weeks

Dr. Phil, MD :

But after that there is no way to know by HCG levels

Customer:

so basically i cant be less than 6 weeks

Dr. Phil, MD :

correct

Dr. Phil, MD :

here are the normal ranges

Customer:

but i can be more than 6weeks

Dr. Phil, MD :

  • 3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml

  • 4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml

  • 5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml

  • 6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml

  • 7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml

  • 9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml

  • 13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml

  • 17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml

  • 25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml

Customer:

i didnt do in june and july atall

Customer:

i saw it last in may

Customer:

so thats why am thinking i should have been 8weeks more

Dr. Phil, MD :

okay so you are worried about the pregnancy then?

Customer:

yes i just want to know actual weeks because i separated with my bf in may

Dr. Phil, MD :

You won't be able to tell the weeks just by HCG

Dr. Phil, MD :

you need to get an ultrasound and discuss with your doctor based on last menstrual period

Customer:

so how can i know

Customer:

?

Dr. Phil, MD :

if you know the date of your last menstrual period that will help

Dr. Phil, MD :

I could figure it out for you

Customer:

but due to this h.c.g

Customer:

i can be 7weeks or more?

Dr. Phil, MD :

correct

Dr. Phil, MD :

make sense?

Customer:

hmmmm yeah

Dr. Phil, MD :

:)

Dr. Phil, MD :

any more questions for me Mary?

Customer:

so basically i can be 7,8 or 9 or 10

Customer:

?

Dr. Phil, MD :

correct

Dr. Phil, MD :

any of those

Dr. Phil, MD :

after a certain point the HCG isn't helpful in determining dates

Dr. Phil, MD :

it is just helpful early on

Customer:

oh i see

Dr. Phil, MD :

yes

Customer:

okay

Customer:

but if i do an ultrasound

Customer:

i could get the exact weeks?

Dr. Phil, MD :

yes

Dr. Phil, MD :

you there Mary?

Dr. Phil, MD :

any more questions for me?

Customer:

yes am here

Customer:

i have been to the hospital

Customer:

they put something inside me

Dr. Phil, MD :

Ok

Customer:

and they estimate 6weeks which was last week

Dr. Phil, MD :

okay

Customer:

just a question pls

Dr. Phil, MD :

that is probably pretty close

Dr. Phil, MD :

so I would say 7 weeks then is accurate

Customer:

they said the baby has developed

Dr. Phil, MD :

good :)

Customer:

can 6 weeks pregnancy developed like that?

Customer:

cos we say the heartbeat

Customer:

so i doubt am still around 6weeks or 7

Customer:

should be more

Dr. Phil, MD :

You can see the heartbeat at 4 weeks

Customer:

the reason for all this is that i separated with my ex in may

Dr. Phil, MD :

I understand but if the hospital told you 6 weeks and the HCG is where it is then you are most likely 6 weeks

Customer:

didnt have my mestration atall june and july

Customer:

i was waiting that it would come july since i cant see in june

Customer:

so i went for test july

Customer:

and find out i was pregnant

Dr. Phil, MD :

yes it all makes sense Mary

Customer:

so for missing my period for 2months

Dr. Phil, MD :

yes

Customer:

i was thinking i would have been 8weeks gone already

Dr. Phil, MD :

no because the pregnancy doesn't occur right after the period

Dr. Phil, MD :

should have been

Dr. Phil, MD :

So I would say 7 weeks is accurate

Customer:

okay

Customer:

then one more question

Dr. Phil, MD :

sure :)

Dr. Phil, MD :

what is your question Mary?

Customer:

my bf wants me to get dna done

Customer:

bcos he wasnt sure

Customer:

so thats why am trying to know how many weeks gone

Dr. Phil, MD :

ok

Customer:

cos the dna people said i can only do it after baby is 9weeks

Customer:

am so confused

Dr. Phil, MD :

Well most people would do DNA after the child is born

Customer:

do u think their will be a prob doing it now

Customer:

?

Customer:

any wrong thing happen to me or baby?

Customer:

they said it wil cost £960

Dr. Phil, MD :

yes you cannot do it now

Dr. Phil, MD :

yes it is very expensive.

Customer:

he his willing to pay it if their is no side effect

Customer:

either for me or baby

Dr. Phil, MD :

you can do an amniocentesis or a CVS. Both are a risk to the baby

Dr. Phil, MD :

I wouldn't advise it

Customer:

u mean u wouldnt advise dna for now?

Customer:

cos i dont want any prob for my child or myself

Dr. Phil, MD :

I agree

Dr. Phil, MD :

why risk it?

Dr. Phil, MD :

just wait

Customer:

okay

Dr. Phil, MD :

Okay Mary ?

Dr. Phil, MD :

:)

Dr. Phil, MD :

any more questions for me?

Customer:
