Looking For Help- Is An Elevated Clotting Factor Vii Normal?

During a recent panel of blood tests my doctor found an elevated factor vii level (927% of normal). After several referals, lastly to a hematologist, we were blown off with the explination that this is normal with pregnancy (i am 16 weeks now). I have found some articles that mention an increase in this factor with pregnancy, but I have not seen quantitative level description. Is this order of magnitude increase reasonable to be the "increase" seen with pregnancy?


Thanks,
