Objective: To obtain the profile of D-dimer in uncomplicated pregnancy. Methods: A cross sectional study was done on 90 uncomplicated pregnant women consisted of 30 women in each trimester and 30 healthy, nonpregnant women as control group from July to August 2012. D-dimer level was measured by particle enhanced immunoturbidimetry method using Innovance D-dimer and Sysmex CA 1500 in the Department of Clinical Pathology, Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital, Jakarta. Results: All women in the control group showed normal D-dimer level (<0.,5 mg/L FEU). The median and range of D-dimer level in the 1st trimester, 2nd trimester, and 3rd trimester were 0.42 mg/L FEU and 0.1-1.07 mg/L FEU, 0.97 mg/L FEU and 0.6-3.34 mg/L FEU, and 1.56 mg/L FEU and 0.69-3.75 mg/L FEU, respectively. Increased D-dimer level was found in 27% of pregnant women in 1st trimester, 87% in 2nd trimester, and 100% in 3rd trimester. Conclusion: Increased D-dimer level was found in 27% of pregnant women in 1st trimester, 87% in 2nd trimester, and 100% in 3rd trimester. The range of D-dimer level in the 1st trimester was 0.1-1.07 mg/L FEU, in the 2nd trimester was 0.6-3.34 mg/L FEU, and in the 3rd trimester was 0.69-3.75 mg/L FEU.
