    Default Do my hcg levels seem normal? What were your levels?

    These are my levels... Do they seem normal? When I compare the babymed hcg chart all my numbers match up except 18dpo seems to be under the average by a lot ... Freaking out a lil' ....

    My HCG 6th jan (12dpo) = 45 -----------------babymed site says average 12dpo is "25"
    My HGC 9th jan (15dpo) = 180 ----------------babymed site says average 15dpo is "150"
    My HCG 10th jan (16dpo) = 320 ----------------babymed site says average 16dpo is "300"
    My HCG 12th jan (18dpo) = 823 ----------------babymed site says average 18dpo is "1710"

    I'm freaking out because all my hcg every time matched up with that babymed sites chart until 18dpo when it looks substantially lower. My hcg even with those numbers is still doubling every 37hours...

    Thoughts?? Is this normal??

    Anyone have days when there hcg rose slower than others but still within the normal doubling time??

    They look great. I did IVF and they liked them to double twice in a week. Anything more was a bonus. They should double every 48-72 hours at first and may slow down after that. Congratulations!

    I think a lot of people don't get their HCG repeated often enough to answer that question.

    If possible I would try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy.

    It doesn't matter at all what it is compared to the average on babymed, that's completely irrelevant. What matters is how it increases compared to itself. It needs to double every couple of days (ish) at this stage, but will slow down as it gets higher.

    As you can see it has more than doubled from 16dpo to 18dpo, so that's great. Congratulations!

    A.) because of cramping
    B.) because of brown spotting
    And c.) because I am a nervous wreck!

    I BEG you to stop going to the Dr for blood tests and start going to get some treatment for your anxiety.

    Cramping and bleeding don't always equal a loss. I've bled all three pregnancies and have 2 healthy little kids.

    I know it's easier said than done, but you really need to try to stop stressing. You've had so many people tell you your levels are fine in different threads. I think it's time to stop thinking things aren't going well, and start to believe they will be fine. Otherwise you are going to be wound up so tight you'll snap.

    Even if you do have a loss, constant bloods won't stop it. Nor will stressing.
