    Default HCG levels. Could my dates be wrong?

    We have found out we are expecting and my cycles are very regular at 28 days. I got a very strong BFP at 11dpo and I was surprised to see the line so dark, darker than the control line.
    I had bloods done the next day at 12dpo and hcg was 560. I had repeat bloods done at 14dpo/cd28 and hcg was 1300. Last bloods were done 17dpo and were 5600. Do these levels seem high to you?

    Sounds normal to me . It can be such a huge range, as long as it's doubling.

    Seem to be doubling ok ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1471437820.645118.jpg and not to far off the charts. I had higher levels than normal with my two and it was just 1 very strong Bub each time

    I wouldn't stress at all, they sound perfect. At 12 dpo my hcg was only 35!!! I always have low ones at the start but it doubled perfectly and I'm now 17 weeks.

    Thank you for your replies. I have had miscarriages in the past so I am constantly worrying about something.

    My levels are high like that with my earthside kids. It usually means a strong healthy pg, and a lot with high HcG tend to have boys IME. I'm a late implanter, so at 14DPO (only 4 days after implant) my count with DS2 was 180 from memory. But 16 DPO was 590, then 19DPO was over 5000. I had lots of bloods as I had lost 3 before DS2.

    I know it's hard but don't stress. No one can know for sure, but it seems like a strong sticky bubba to me. Congrats

    They seem perfect.
    Mine were really low to start with (77) but doubled at a rate of 21 hours. I was kind of expecting twins, but we just have one healthy little boy in there.

    Congrats on your pregnancy!

    Definitely a good sign, try not to worry. I had similar numbers with my DS and had a very uneventful pregnancy and healthy bub. I worked myself silly over the levels being too high but it was for no reason so just relax and enjoy those good numbers
