    I'm a little confused. Exactly a week ago today, I had a blood test to confirm I was pregnant, and my level was only at 33. Today, I don't remember exactly what she said, but it was over 1,000...I think she said 1,100-something but I was too excited to retain the information. Hehe!
    Anyway, I'm a little confused. She said these levels put me at 4 weeks. However, today is exactly 5 weeks since LMP. But looking at 4 week levels I can find online, 1100 is really high...like serious problem or multiples high. But fine for 5 weeks.
    Has anyone run into something like this?

    Thanks......hrm, I hate being that way, but hard to believe over 40 views and nobody's got an experience to share. Oh well. ;p
    they should take away the views altogether. Annoying to see read-n-runs.

    That's good. I just went through something similar. My levels a week ago were 39. Now they are 2900. Doctor said it's totally normal.

    i know nothing about hcg levels but the other multiple mummies most say that its their levels were normal, that HCG isnt any higher than any other level, its only the progesterone thats higher.

    All i know about HCG is its meant to go up! so looking good! :D

    Maybe you're slightly further along and your blood results are perfect? xx

    I really wouldn't worry to much as everybody is different. My levels were 9000 at 4 weeks but scan yesterday showed 1 healthy baby now 10 weeks. As long as they are increasing I wouldn't worry :(

    hun when i was weeks along mine were 1100 also so i would worry although i ovulated on day 21 so part of me wonders if i wasnt only 4 weeks along but according to my LMP i would have been 5 weeks but if i was accurate on the day i o'd it would be 4 but here is the thing i have had 4 children 1 was born 5 weeks early-1 was born 1 week early- 1 was 3 weeks late-1 was 3 weeeks early in that order. you are pregnant and things look good or they would say and your little bean will come when when it darn well pleases lol. congrats darlin
