Looking for answers...primary hyperparathyroidism

I have read as well as a million other research articles etc.  wondering if anyone has had a similar set of labresults or anyone with any insight what so ever. Thanks a million!

I am a 27 year old female with no underlying health problems.  My endo checked my pth levels after my vitamin d 1,25 results came back high at 89 a month before.  My obgyn ordered the 1,25 when I asked her to check my vitamin d...not sure why she ordered that lab instead of 25. I am 5'8.5 and 165 lbs.

Results may 15 2012
Pth intact 87
Serum ca 9.3 (9.3 in march 2011)
Ionized ca 1.24
Phosporus 2.9
Vitamin d (25) 40 (22 in march 2011)
Creatinine .6 (.7 in march 2011)
Bun  10 (16 in march 2011)
24 hour urine normal at 303 
Alkaline phosphatase 49 (43 in march 2011)
No stones that I know of
Negative for celiacs

Follow up on 7/30/12
Pth intact 94
Serum ca 9.1
Ionized ca 1.22
Phosphorus 3.1
Creatinine .7
Bun 16
Alkaline phosphatase 55
Still no stones
Vitamin d (25) 41

I am now 27 so I know sometimes people my age have higher ca levels, but doesn't the change from 9.1 to 10.2 in just two weeks fit primary pth? Could this be something else?  I see my doc next week but I know there are so many nuances to this so I want to know what's going on.  I had planned to begin trying to get pregnant in the near future (doc said phpt doesn't affect pregnancy) and the research I have found on phpt during pregnancy is not a good situation.  So I am anxious to get this resolved.

Ops left out new results

Serum ca 10.2
Pth 64

Other labs aren't I yet (vitman d)

I also have normal magnesium
Reference ranges for most tests vary from lab to lab, so must come from your own report.  If you will please post them so members can compare your levels to the "normal" levels, that would be a help.

We have some members who have been treated for parathyroid issues.
