Ok, all of you who have had the blood work that goes along with the NT scan, did you know that the hcg level ( also called MoM) that is part of the blood work is 19% higher in females than males?

So the normal is 1.00 ( boys) but the girl level ,on average, is 1.185. It is really well documented, and girls are actually more often misdiagnosed as " positive" for the screening because of this.

So, I asked the nurse who called to give me my results ( which were great btw) all about my exact numbers. My beta hcg MoM was 1.44. Which is even higher than the average girl number.

I really think I'm having a girl now!

Interesting!  I wish I had access to my bloodwork from my NT scan appt. now.  I'm curious what my numbers were when I was pg with dd.

Marie, I think a scan is more accurate. I would go with that.The beta MoM is just a number of averages, so it's not dead on.  It is just fun to pick apart the numbers and guess!

 Lil pigs,  How exciting that you have the numbers from before.  I don't think very many people ask for the exact numbers.  That makes me even more hopeful!

 So I just ask for the M-O-M from the quant beta test?  She just told me the hcg amount (1,491 at 18dpo).  Do I have to get a seperate scan?

It's from the NT test that's done at 12 weeks. It's a combo u/s and blood test done to assess possible down syndrome. It's different from the standard quantitative betas done at the beginning of pregnancy.

If you talk about your BHCG MoM count is that the combined count of the PAPP- A and the BHCH or  just the BhCH count.

My BhCG MoM count is 2.45 which seems high but the combined count of the PAPP-A and the BhCH is 1.02 MoM
