My doctor asked for another urine sample because there didn`t appear to be any growth hormone

Hi Alex, i am eight weeks and just got my results for the first blood and urine test. My doctor asked for another urine sample because there didnt appear to be any growth hormone. What does this mean? Was distracted by my eight month old and forgot to ask the doctor. Thanks hope you can help. Nikkii

Answer: Hi Nikkii, Your doctor needs to confirm that you are pregnant. In the early weeks many problems can occur and they need to be ruled out. Sometimes you can miscarry and take a few weeks to start bleeding to miscarry the baby – this is probably what he was checking. Best wishes, Alex
