    Default HCG Levels

    Im a total mess atm. Im terrifies ive lost another one. I had an ectopic preg January last year, a missed miscarriage in November last year, a miscarriage in March this year and now im almost 6 weeks and terrified. Not only are my symptoms coming and going but I got my blood results on Friday 5.1 weeks HCG 4260 & progestrone 60 then 5.3 weeks HCG 6080 & progestrne 71. Im so worried about the HCG levels I don' think they have gone up anywhere near enough. My Dr wasnt in on Friday so I couldn't talk to him about it. I have a scan tomorrow but Im making myself sick with worry, I feel like this is my last chance to have another baby. Sorry to ven but we have kept this pregnancy totally to ourselves so I can talk to anyone and my DH is already upst too.

    Your levels sound good. HCG levels aren't meant to double as fast once they are above 1000 I think. Your progesterone levels are great. Good luck with the scan tomorrow. I know it's hard not to worry after losses but you are still in with a very good chance with those levels,

    They sound fine to me - as your pregnancy progresses, your "doubling" time increases... So you wouldn't expect to see exactly double the HCG in 2 days at that stage

    Check out this link, it explains it http://www.babymed.com/tools/hcg-calculator

    Good luck with your scan!!!

    Thank you for your comments.

    I had my scan today and there was a beautifult little heart beating away at 145bpm. I had a scan at the same gestation with my first miscarriage and the US lady remembers doing it and said that in her opinion this one looks alot healthier. So fingers crossed.
