    Default hcg and progesterone levels

    Hi all, this is my first pregnancy. I'm 28. Based on LMP I'm about 5 1/2 weeks. I've been having my levels tested for about a week just to make sure they're going up. All my doctor says they're good. Won't elaborate. I'm concerned they're going up too much. what do you ladies think?
    week 4+1 day hcg 153, 48 hours later, hcg 464. 96 hours later they jumped to 3,160. Then my latest results are 48 hours later (yesterday) they're 8,220. Is this too high?? My progesterone is 69.4 nmol - Australian metric standards (21.8 ng american) Is my progesterone levels low do you think for the week I'm at?

    I'm also concerned as I don't feel I really have any symptoms. Sore boobs on/off, really hungry and a bit more tired than usual. That's it. No nausea or morning sickness

    I'm having my first ultrasound next friday to see if there is a heartbeat. Fingers crossed. Thanks in advance for any answers! Best of luck to you all with your pregnancies

    Hi @lovey88

    Just looking back through my pregnancy journal (I'm currently 15w5d) and my levels were as follows:-

    4weeks.....228
    4w3d........688
    4w5d........1,432
    5weeks.....4,135
    5w3d........10,879
    6w3d........62,385

    My progesterone was 14 at it's lowest (they put me on extra pessaries at that point) and 202 at it's highest. Most fertility specialists want your level over 30.

    I think your levels look fine!

    With regards to symptoms I had none at all really until after 9 weeks. Then a few little ones came on. My boobs were not sore until 12 weeks, and I only vomited once - at 14 weeks! I've seen bub on the ultrasound a few times now and our Harmony testing came back perfect. Don't stress about symptoms - we're all different
