So, because of a m/c I had in August, the doctor scheduled me for an early ultrasound..Thank goodness because otherwise I'd need to wait til 20 weeks! So I go in for that at 1pm today..so excited.

They are also taking labs to check progesterone, thyroid, and iron levels. Anyone know what normal numbers are for these?

Progesterone they like to be above 20+, Thyroid it depends on what they draw; if they draw T3 (the normal first draw-do you have history of thyroid problems?), they like that to be between 1-5. If you've never had thyroid problems it is unlikely pregnancy will change that. I'm unsure about iron levels. They just tell me I'm anemic every time.
Have fun at your ultrasound!

Just got back! Ultrasound went great! Got pictures of our little baby, heartbeat 152 bpm, measuring 7 weeks 3 days so pretty much matches up to my dates. She said everything looks really good. So excited. She did measure the baby, but I don't remember if she said it outloud or if I forgot?

I'll update again when I get my lab results probably Monday!

That's great news!!! Congrats!!!

My OB said that a nonpregnant person thyroid level is normal betweek .5-5.5 however a pregnant woman should be under 2.5. Although the US and Canada dr's do things quite differently. Hope your #'s come back great

Just thought I'd update with my lab results that came back today. All normal!

Progesterone - 8.75, (which she said is in the normal range of 1-18)
Thyroid - 1.76, which she said was normal.
Iron levels she indicated was good as well, but she did not give a specific number this one.

Yay to a healthy pregnancy!!
