    Hi all,

    I had my blood test done on wednesday and found my HCG count as 11,347 and i went in for another blood test today and found my HCG count 15, 439.
    Is this normal?

    I am in my 7th week of pregnancy

    Hey.....I found this..........
    3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
    4 weeks LMP: 5 - 426 mIU/ml
    5 weeks LMP: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml
    6 weeks LMP: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml
    7 - 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
    9 - 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml
    13 - 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml
    17 - 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml
    25 - 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml

    As you can see the HCG peaks around 9 weeks, your levels fit in the right catagory hun, so try not to worry!
    Are you having your levels checked for a reason??

    The spotting may have been implantation bleeding. Either way your levels fall in line with the charts so I hope you will be just fine :)

    Anyone know why the levels kind of taper off after week 16?
