Hi, I'm just wonder if people found their hcg levels similar in their second (or subsequent) pregnancies to their first?

Yes, in the sense my first BHCG was 50 with one and 51 with the other. I dont know the repeat of futher tests but I remember the first being low with both original.gif

Nope, they were much lower the second time around, in fact this whole pregnancy has been the complete opposite of my first.

Yeah sunnycat mine are lower too. It has me a bit worried but I'm hopeful it might mean I won't be so sick!

From what I can recall, mine is actually double - last time was 750, this time it's 1500. The blood test this time may have been a couple of days earlier.

First was 125 at around 4 weeks and this time it is 173 but still waiting to confirm how far along, Dr thinks only 4 weeks.

With DS at 4 weeks my HCG was 421 with this one it was 222, at 4w2d my HCG was over 1100 with DS this time it was only 540 or something.

With DS I had MS from day one to 16 weeks and then it returned at 24 weeks until about 32 weeks. This one MS lasted until 9 weeks and now I barely remember that I'm pregnant as have no signs, not even peeing heaps.

Mine were different.  

At 15dpo last time HCG was 218.

At 14dpo this time HCG was 115

My last pregnancy was for all intents and purposes successful, and this pregnancy I'm now 34 weeks. So differing HCG certainly doesn't have to mean something bad.

Good luck!
