    Default HCG levels, worried!

    Hi ladies... I'm feeling really anxious about my HCG levels and my stupid cycle.. So really grateful if anyone would have any insights for me to put my crazy mind at ease.

    My last period was March 2nd (my cycles can range from 35-55 days!).

    I ovulated April 9/10 (clearblue static smile on the 9th April, so possibly ovulated April 10?).

    So if I go by ovulating on the 10th;
    22-Apr/11dpo: BFN
    23-Apr/12dpo: BFP (FRER - faint line)
    24-Apr/13dpo: BFP (FRER - good progression) Clearblue digital said NOT PREG
    25-Apr/14dpo: BFP (FRER - good progression) & Blood test done at 8am.
    HCG levels only at 50...
    26-Apr/15dpo: BFP (FRER - good progression again)
    27-Apr/16dpo: Clearblue states "Pregnant 1-2 weeks"

    I have repeat bloods tomorrow morning...

    I'm a bit stressed with the results of the clear blue digital test? Would that be right I am only 1-2 weeks pregnant or am I reading it wrong.


    HELP please! x

    Hey,
    They look find to me. The FFER are a lot more sensitive than the clear blue so what you are seeing is not weird. The good thing is you are seeing progressively darker lines and I’m sure your blood test will show your HCG is going up.

    Good luck!

    Hi, I think that sounds pretty good. I didn’t get 2-3 on digi until 16 or 17 dpo, and am currently 32 weeks pregnant! I think the progression is more important than the level. The digi threshold for 2-3 is about 150, so you might not quite be there yet which wouldn’t be a worry based on your blood test HCG as it can still have doubled in 2 days but just not got to that threshold yet. Sending lots of positive thoughts and energy your way xx

    Thank you ladies! Ugh this whole thing is so stressful in the beginning! The worrying never ends! I realised I calculated wrong too I’m 17dpo today where it stated I’m 1-2 weeks.
    I guess I’ll find out in the coming days where my Hcg is sitting. I’m so scared!

    The 1-2 weeks is from conception.

    Approx hcg levels is 25-250 for 1-2 weeks, then approx 250-2500 for 2-3 weeks and 2500+ for 3+

    It's not an exact science though

    Hang in there.

    I never had repeat bloods with any pregnancy.... but I did have "low" levels. My 1st gp told me he didn't believe in follow ups unless you had bleeding or severe cramps. He oversaw my mc and first 2 children's pregnancies.

    #1 - 18,000 something. (I was 6 weeks. I'd felt off but didn't link it and just said I'd test in a few days if I still felt yuck... almost fell in the toilet at the fast dark positive ). Baby stopped growing at 5w3d. Mcd at 8w.

    #2 - 11dpo. Hcg 15. Got given the non viable talk...... He's now 9

    #3 - 14dpo. hcg 63. Again, got given the non viable talk. He's now 5

    #4 - 17dpo - hcg127. I didn't get the non viable talk, just that it was VERY early and to be aware we had a long way to go. He's 1 in a few weeks
