So what do you guys think? Think Athena and Harmony are pregnant based on their results?
These girls would only be around 33-34 days post breeding, and probably should have waited until next week to get them tested but guess I got impatient! We were told to retest in 2 weeks. I am thinking with their levels being right near 1.000 that they are just not showing strong levels like the other 2 that are confirmed pregnant.
We don't do a lot of blood testing, but have had 1-2 in the past years that were also 'possibly' pregnant, and so far everything we've tested ended up being pregnant.
The question I meant to ask the lab was, what are common levels for early pregnancy? Anything over 1.000, or are they usually higher?



I also thought I would share a video of my husband drawing blood on my baby, Mindy (who is pregnant). He has to pull blood randomly at work (horses) and it's done the same way. I admit, this is something I have not done, but figure since the hubby knows what he is doing... it can be 'his' thing to do with the goats lol.

Can you call them tomorrow and ask?
I thought about emailing the lab tech and asking her, but if I don't I will just ask when we take samples again in 2 weeks for these 2 girls. The lab is about 20 minutes away (Livestock Diagnostics lab). I really love using them. Tests are $3.00 each with a one time $10 processing fee on each transaction. So it only cost $22 for the 4 tests. No hassle with packaging and shipping. They test on Wed mornings, and have results emailed before the end of the day.
