Had a blood test today to confirm I'm pregnant - my hcg level is 45 which is low for four weeks, but still positive.
What about everyone else?
Any good news stories to share?
Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hi Charlotte, I don't know mine currently but at 4 weeks mine were 400 but my GP told me anything between 9.5 and 32000 was the norm. Hope that helps.

I havent rushed out for bloods or anything yet. Getting my first lot taken Thursday I will be 5 weeks. The two times I miscarried the did bloods every 48-72 hours. They said it didnt really matter what the numbers were just that they were doubling.

Dont stress too much on numbers, unfortunately there is nothing we can do to stop MC. Sending you lots of sticky dust.

Hi,

Mine at 4.6 weeks was 2436. Everyone is different. Most likely at 5 weeks it will be much higher like mine. Yours sounds normal original.gif

This is the graph they go by.

hCG levels in weeks from the last normal menstrual period:

    3 weeks LMP: 5 – 50 mIU/ml
    4 weeks LMP: 5 – 426 mIU/ml
    5 weeks LMP: 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
    6 weeks LMP: 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
    7 – 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml
    9 – 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml
    13 – 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml
    17 – 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml
    25 – 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml
    Women who are not pregnant : <5.0 mIU/ml

Every one is different do try it be consumed by numbers. If you are concerned ask for repeat bloods to make sure they are doubling.

I did IVF so have had a couple of tests.

14dpo - 150

22dpo - 1611

I too was a bit worried about mine. I just got copy of blood test in post yesterday and it was around 200. That seemed low to me but my Dr never rang me to say she was concerned and she normally would if something was wrong so I am hoping it is OK. I am going to try and have another blood test in a few weeks to check it is rising. I will not have scan till after Christmas and really want some assurance all is OK before we tell family at Christmas.

15DPO = 49 (was admitted to hospital)
17DPO = 90
19DPO = 190
21DPO = 469
23DPO = 1500

I have another blood test on Friday/25DPO.

Mine was 180 at 14DPO.  My GP said that was really good, although I've seen most ladies here have higher than that at 14 DPO! LOL!  My doc said the range is huge and anything over 9 was considered normal.

I don't belong in this group (came in from recent topics) but just wanted to say good luck and try not to worry about the numbers.  My HCG levels (ivf) were all over the place on testing; low and not doubling the way they are expected to - a GP even told me I was having a miscarriage or ectopic. My specialist's response though was that he had seen many strange HCG tests resulting in "lovely pregnancies". He was spot on and my little "HCG result" is now a month old!

Hope you get some nice strong levels Charlotte :-)

Just got my 12dpo results back - 150. I'm pretty happy with that. I have another referral for next tuesday which will be 19dpo and hoping to see those numbers increase nicely!!

It's so stressful in this early period, especially if you've already experienced a loss. Fingers crossed for great news for all of you!!

#12 living_bravely

Posted 06 December 2012 - 01:33 PM

That's a great number miss-petal!  YAY!  I understand the stress.  I find myself more and more stressed about our first scan.  It's so hard isn't it!  Especially since I don't have a lot of symptoms (and didn't until around 7-8 weeks with my daughter).

Anyway, fingers crossed for a lovely increase next bloods.  I can't bring myself to have any more.  It just stresses me out to much. (the waiting for results and then analysing them to death on doctor google, not the actual needle itself. LOL!)

Hi everyone
My levels have tripled so I'm pregnant! I guess I was before but feel more ok about saying it now. I have a scan in two weeks. Still in shock as we are doing IVF and fell naturally waiting to start another round.
Anyone got symptoms at this early stage? Desperate to feel some and wonder if I do if it'll be more mental than anything!!

#14 living_bravely

Posted 06 December 2012 - 03:24 PM

Yay Charlotte!  That is so great!  It's so funny how that happens.  We were due to start in Januray, but fell pregnant naturally as well.

Don't worry I'm not feeling any symptoms really either.  I didn't really get any until about 7-8 weeks with my DD, so I'm hoping it's just to early for me.  It's hard not to worry though!

I had blood taken on tues, i was 3wks 6days, and that was 101. Got more taken yesterday so will be getting the result this arvo.

I think so long as the levels are doubling atleast every 3 days everything should progress properly original.gif

#20 LumpySpacePrincess

Posted 07 December 2012 - 10:55 PM

Result from yesterdays test is 274 original.gif Very pleased with that, im doubling every 31 hours. Good luck to everyone else awaiting their results

Posted 08 December 2012 - 01:03 PM

My GP wouldn't send me for blood tests. She said there is no need if the hpt are showing pregnant!

#22 Mim12

Posted 08 December 2012 - 02:11 PM

Starposs my GP was the same with my last pregnancy. I bounced in there at around 4-5 weeks and he sent me away for another 2 weeks. He said there wasn't a whole lot of point doing bloods that early and that hpts are so accurate these days.

This time around (we lost the last pg) I will go in at around 6/7 weeks and I will also be asking for a dating scan around 9 weeks just to know that there is a little heartbeat going and to know we have made it to where we didn't last time.

I don't think I could handle the extra stress over hcg levels, I'm bad enough as it is already without weekly tests!  original.gif

Posted 10 December 2012 - 09:33 AM

I got mine back this morning. They were taken at 4w6days and were 2800. They are happy with those numbers and arent going to send me for another lot. My Vitamin D is now a low average but apparently no need to be concerned.

#24 lilac06

Posted 10 December 2012 - 06:32 PM

I had bloods taken today at 17dpo and came back as 1300. I go for repeat blood test in a week but they were happy with the result.

Posted 10 December 2012 - 10:35 PM

Someone shared this in the last DIG group I was in. I found it helpful as you could adjust the mothers age.  Remember bloods are not the be all and end all. Its jist to give you an idea.
