    hi guys,hoping for some advice
    i posted a while back about being diagnosed with polycystic ovaries.
    well we got a bit of a suprise i took a test monday just as a precaution really as my period hadnt come when expected which was nothing new. well we got a positive!:thumbup: was bit of a shock as we were going to wait till after the wedding but we are both happy as we weren't really preventing. i think i would have conceived on 14th march so its early days. when i went to docs i had some cramping so they sent me to early pregnancy unit but they wouldn't do a scan as my hcg levels were only 745,
    i am just wondering if this is normal for this early? im going for another blood test monday, just a worry!!!
    anyone had a similar experience?

    don't worry! your number is excellent. Just that at early stage before 6- 7 weeks the scan won't show enough. But your number is great.

    * 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
    * Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
    * Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml

    Yes, very normal. Mine was 43 at 3 wks 4 days. I'm 6 weeks now and it's almost 2000. What matters is if it doubles every 48 to 72 hours. I am pregnancy pro... This is my 10th pregnancy. If you want to save yourself some stress wait until 6.5 weeks at least for a scan. You may not see a heartbeat before then and it's soooo stressful. Congratulations!

    Mine was 311 at 14DPO and 759 at 16DPO!

    So you sound perfect!!!

    I was talking to a Dr at work, who told me they can't see anything on scan until your BHCG reaches at least 1400 !
