    Default Please help! High hcg levels?

    Please help! I am driving myself crazy with all the wondering!

    I am 31, and have been ttc since Oct 2015. I had a natural m/c June 2016 at 6 weeks, fell pregnant again soon after but ended up having a d&c in Sept 2016 at 11 weeks (scans showed bub had no heartbeat and had stopped growing at 6.5 weeks). So after being told not to try again for 2 months we were very vigilant and used protection, as I was terrified of miscarrying again! We finally started ttc again on Nov 26th. Since the d&c I've had two pretty normal periods; first day of lmp was 19th Nov. I tested quite a dark positive on the 10th Dec, a whole week before my period was due again! I tested again that night, the following day and then the morning of the 12th with another brand just to be sure- all positive and all getting darker! I don't know how I am getting such a dark positive so early? Tonight I used a clear blue digital, which read 2-3 weeks. To my knowledge and in my experience, these tests go from the date of conception and not the gestational age. I have never tested so early and gotten such a definite result, so I am starting to worry about a molar pregnancy as I know these give you increased hcg levels. My only other thoughts are we conceived while using condoms and perhaps my 'period' was an implantation bleed, I ovulated right after my period and conceived the first day we started trying again OR it's multiples! I'm praying it's one of the latter! Please help! Has anyone experienced this?

    It could be any of those things, or it could be absolutely nothing. There is a huge variance in what "normal" hcg levels are at different stages. Just because you are getting a strong bfp doesnt mean there is something wrong. I got a very strong bfp (7dpo) and it did turn out to be multiples (sadly I miscarried them), but I also know of women who have had the same thing and just had the one in the tum. I can understand why you are anxious because you've been through the wringer, but try to relax for now and go get a dating scan around 6 weeks to put your mind at ease. Best of luck!

    Oh GingerKat, I'm so sorry to hear that! I suppose I'm grasping at straws wanting to hear someone else who has had the same experience and come out with a positive result. It is hard to believe that everything will be ok this time, but fingers crossed

    I got my BFP 4dp5dt. My HCG was always through the roof - as in, well above the bounds of what books listed as normal for my dates.

    Scans confirmed I have 1 bub on board.

    I don't hold much stock in HCG numbers. Low or high, as long as they double at the required rate that's all that counts.

    Some come out of the starting blocks faster than others but that doesn't necessarily mean multiples.

    Thanks Blossom74! It just seems so different to the last two times. As long as there's a healthy bub in there, I'm happy!
