Higher HCG levels = good pregnancy?


Have you guys ever heard that if you have higher levels of HCG, the more viable your pregnancy is? How true do you think that is?

I think I've heard that, but I don't know about the validity of it.

When I got my I was wondering if how quickly it turned + had to do with how much hcg there was. I set the First Response test down on the counter and it turned in about two seconds... then, of course, my heart just about fell out of my chest... while I was still peeing.

Im not sure if it is true or not. It could mean a few things I suppose. Conception date not calculated properly, twins or a molar pregnancy. My last pregnancy didnt go well and my HCG numbers were low. I was going to get my numbers checked with this one but didnt want to stress myself out because numbers dont make or break. I have read where women have low hcg numbers and have a healthy baby or where women have high or normal numbers and the pregnancy doesnt go well.

I waited until December 26th to test, when my period was due on the 22nd (didn't want to get my hopes up). I guess it makes sense, since I did it after my period was due and that's an early result test.

Btw, I don't know when I ovulated.... I wasn't really trying (but not trying not to), so I didn't think about my cycle too much. Sorry.

I hope so! But I don't this so. My Hcg levels were higher than normal (quadrupled instead of doubled) and the doc said I either am very pregnant, or could be molar or an additional ectopic. My u/s showed it was one very healthy bean thank goodness!

I think it is a very healthy sign that your levels are high, but I don't think it necessarily reduces your risk of miscarriage.

I reckon we are all just different.

Is it true higher HCG causes morning sickness tho?
My tests went very dark, very quickly, but I don't feel too bad!

I do know high HCG levels can indicate higher chance of a downs baby, as well as twins or a molar.

I thought the higher the hCG the further along you were (as doesn't it double every 48 hours for the first few weeks?). I don't know but i wouldn't stress yourself out over it too much

Yes its right that the numbers should double every 48hrs, but I think they mean the total high level ie 50,000 HCG?

I don't know whether the higher numbers indicate stronger pregnancy, I think it would depend on the individual person as we all have different levels to start with? I do agree though that very high HCG could indicate twins/multiple pregnancy xxx
