Well it will be a cheat, and you will suffer consequences. You will either gain and then stall, or maybe just stall. Depends on what you do. Can you delay the celebration? If you can’t try cheating just a little. You don’t need food or drinks to celebrate and to have a good time. Just go do something fun. But if you do go out and cheat, just remember it’s not the end of the world. Just realize that you will gain and then probably stall. So just think about what it is worth to you. Great job on the 8 pounds! You are doing very well.
The level of hCG in the blood is often used as part of a screening for birth defects in a maternal serum triple or quadruple screening test . These tests are usually done between 15 and 20 weeks of pregnancy to check the levels of three or four substances in a pregnant woman's blood. The triple screen checks hCG, alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), and a type of estrogen (unconjugated estriol, or uE3). The quad screen checks these substances and the level of the hormone inhibin A. The levels of these substances-along with a woman's age and other factors-help the doctor figure out the chance that the baby may have certain problems or birth defects.
