    The 1-3 weeks was from the doctor. I asked if she meant from ovulation and she said 'no 1-3 weeks pregnant'. It was at that point that i realised she was the biggest idiot ever, especially since I got my BFP several days before the blood test.

    She was reading it from the pathology report. It says 'gestational age' and then the different ages and the range of HCG levels.

    I'm going to book in for my dating scan in three weeks time. I'll find out then if all is well or not (I'll be 7-8 weeks along I guess, so there should be a heartbeat). Until then, I've managed to convince myself that everything is ok, although I'm still worried about the lack of morning sickness.

    I didn't get MS til 6-7weeks pregnant. Maybe yours hasn't kicked in yet, or maybe you'll be lucky and not get any!

    At 19DPO, so where you were in your OP, my levels were 1590. But by then mine were actually out of the normal range. There is such a wide variety of normal.

    Remember that in between 4 and 5 weeks the levels should triple or more in that week. So 217 x2 = 434 x2 = 868 x 2 = 1736. You should see a big jump in your next test.

    Go get another blood test, that should tell you what is happening. And don't stress about the MS. Some of us (unfortunately ) are sick from 5 weeks on. Others don't get sick at all, others not until 6 or 7 weeks. Apparently there is often a link between MS and high levels, thus why I get sick early. But at around 200 I wasn't sick either.

    Default HCG levels

    Okay, assuming you did O on the 3rd of Jan (which is sounds like you did), when it comes to calculating your due date that is "CD14". That makes your LMP date the 21st of December (putting O on the 3rd of Jan) which means that when you took the blood test on Monday the 19th, you were 16DPO (a bit over 4 weeks pregnant). According to betabase (http://www.betabase.info/chart/basic/single) for 16DPO, the lowest reported level was 9 and the highest was 3607 with an average of 279.

    So you're on the lower side of the average but as the ladies said, the number doesn't matter anywhere near as much as the rate at which it doubles. You need a repeat blood test if you want to check that.
