    Is this good?

    The Dr just rang with my test results and said my HCG levels at 7 weeks were 62,000.

    Is this good??



    I don't remember what they're supposed to be. I know when I was preg with DD they were pretty high but I can't remember what they were.

    I thought there was a sticky thread in here somewhere with what the levels were meant to be but can't find it...

    TIA guys. Looking for any good news. Nervous after a previous m/c and a couple of weeks til my dating scan.

    Hi Heaven,

    Mine were high with my last DD, 70000 at 7 weeks, this time high at 5 weeks 1 day 15,812, haven't had them done since but think they will have been similar to yours again. According to Ob, some people just have higher HCG. Could be twins though (are you getting a sneak preview, dating scan soon?). It's only one for me, phew!
    Apparently higher HCG more chance of a girl as well, though that is probably just one of those old wives tales.
    Hope all going well,
    take care

    Oh thanks so much guys!!

    I had a quick look on google but couldn't find what I wanted quickly and didn't have time last night so thought this would be quicker.

    That's great then!! I had no idea what they were supposed to be but I think I remember now that at 8 weeks with DD they were something like 180 000 which the Dr thought was really high.

    Ugh, is this why I feel so sick?

    Heaven, just picked my last 2 blood tests up from gp today to take to clinic, I did hav another bt at 6 weeks, which was 63440, so think you and I just tend to have high hcg. I remember our last pregnancies we both had similar numbers as well.

    take care Hun,

    So pleased you fell so easily this time, hope it's a H & H few months for you,
