So my first dr. Appointment is march 7th, but I'm dying to know if my levels are looking good. Would it be unreasonable for me to ask the doctor to come in this week just to check my levels ?

It wouldn't hurt to ask but I don't think most drs check levels unless there's a reason to. I've only had a blood test with one of my pregnancies.

Depends on the dr. Some will do it some won't. Mine did with this pregnancy because I had a mc 6 weeks before I conceived and I insisted. He thought it was nearly pointless because there's nothing you can do if they aren't rising and felt it would add unnecessary stress on me since I was a nervous wreck to begin with. Try to distract yourself its only 2 weeks away! I have an appt that day too :)

My hormone levels. I wouldnt know if something was wrong since it's just my first pregnancy and I want to know if it's looking normal.

I have to agree with the above. There's nothing they can do if something is wrong and they aren't normal and "normal" varies greatly anyways. I'd just wait until your appt but that's jmo.

you can always ask but it'd be up to the doc.

 One test won't really tell them anything.  Because the range of normal is so wide, they have to do do 2 and compare you to you.  But I'm sure all is well.  Good luck!
