    I just got my blood test results back from yesterday (exactly 4 weeks). My HCG level was 71. I had a MC in January, and I'm starting to really worry my HCG levels are too low. I'm supposed to go back in one week to re-test. What was everyone's levels for weeks 4 and 5. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    mine at 4w0d were 1300 but dont go by mine either cause I cant find anybody near mine. You couldve just implanted late so therefor your numbers arent as high. I had them drawn a week before and they were 13. So as the above poster said its not so much the number itself its how they rise. they should double every 48-72 hours

    yea, i was thinking that a week seemed too long. I'll call them tomorrow to see if i can go in earlier. i'm trying not to over-think things, but i still hate all this worrying. good luck to everyone!!

    My first draw at 4 weeks + was 321 and my next draw at 5 weeks 5 days was 7535. It's a wide range for normal though and it's more important how yours are rising!

    At 4+ my levels were 938, but its all about the rising. The range is sooooooo vast at tis stage that is why they always follow up with repeat bloods for comparison or an early scan if you are close to 1500 (the magic number where you can see the pregnancy on ultra sound). Good luck and try to stay calm.

    Is there any reason to worry about high numbers? Especially if you're ahead of the chart's range and know that your date isn't off?
    at 4+1 my hcg was 1700 and at 4+3 was 4,369.
    I'm 5 wks now but haven't had another blood draw. I'm just wondering why I could be so high in the 4wk range?
