    Default Should I be concerned

    My LMP was the 10th Jan, I tested positive to 3 HPTs on Monday the 1st Feb, making me 3w1d. I booked into my gp for bloods that day and received confirmation of pregnancy on Tuesday the 2nd Feb. HCG results were 35. My gp had no concerns, and have an ultrasound for dating and viability on the 29th Feb.

    From reading a few posts on here, seems my HCG levels are quite low. My period was due today and I've had no spotting or bleeding, which is a good sign. Should I be concerned with the low levels and should I go fet another lot of bloods done to check if it's rising?

    With the other 4 children, I never knew my HCG levels and didn't know i was pregnant till 4weeks. So, I have nothing to compare this experience too.

    TIA

    13 days after I ovulated my hcg was in the 30's. Sounds fine.

    @4babycinos it sounds like you had the blood test very early, if it was done 4 days before your period was due, so I'd say that sounds like a pretty healthy number to me.
