I was wondering if someone could tell me what a normal HCG level is at about 4 weeks. Mine was done at 4 wks 2 days at was 917. From what I have been told from friends that is a high number. Is that true and if so what does a high number mean?

Normal HCG blood levels vary widely between different women and in different pregnancies for the same woman. Be very careful when trying to 'interpret the numbers'. During the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, the level itself is NOT as important in how much it is rising every few days. Some normal pregnancies will have quite low HCG levels and still progress, ending in the birth of a healthy baby. The best way to confirm if a pregnancy is progressing is to repeat the blood test in 2 to 3 days time, and perhaps again 2 to 3 days after that. This is aimed at seeing if the HCG level is rising adequately.
Hello, I am four weeks and six days pregnant. I had my blood work done today, Tuesday, and it came back with HCG levels of 810. On Thursday, my levels went up to 1637. Is this normal? Does it mean I might have multiples? Or am I just jumping the gun? I have been pregnant with twins before and lost them in my fourth month. My husband is a fraternal twin and twins run on both sides of our family. We have two living children ages twelve and ten. It would be very exciting if I were having twins! If anyone has any knowledge about this, please let me know. I am also taking Progesterone to help thicken the lining of my uterus.
Hi Erica, my levels are too very high. I cannot give a definite answer, but it seems very likely that it could be multiples. But at the very least it is reassurance for us that our babies are super healthy! Good luck!
