    How to read a HCG Quantitative lab result from doctor
    christalcubs posted:
    I got a call from my doctor saying that my blood test results came back positive and that I am pregnant. I had to pick up the lab results so that I could take them to my midwife because my doctor doesn't deliver babies. So as I am looking at the lab result it says HCG Quantitative can tell about how far along a woman may be by the levels. My lab report says result: 8 flag: H Referance Range<5. Does anyone know what all this means? I am dying to know how far along I may be and my next gyne appt is not for awhile. Thanks.
