BLOOD TEST - Pregnancy
Could someone help I went to the doctor at 6 weeks pregnant. I did have some complications, but baby is fine. He sent me to have a blood test to see how strong the pregnancy is. He said anything above 5 means you are pregnant. I am a 35. Which he said is a bit low. He was hoping for a 100. He told me I mustn't worry. Can someone explain this to me.

This may mean that the pregnancy is not progressing as it should. However, it is early days and the thing to do would be to repeat the blood test in a few days.
