    Hi ladies... :wave:

    I was just wondering what your HCG levels are/were... :shrug:

    Ive just had mine done today at 15dpo and they are 529... I asked the nurse what range she would expect or what she would say was good and all I got was '529 is fine' What does that mean!?!? :hissy:

    hi i had mine done at 10 dpo at they were hcg : 22 & progestreone : 61.1
    then again on 17 dpo they were hcg : 834 & prggestreone : 50.1 i think which made mine triple every other day doubling time was every 30.2 hours . hich is all abve avrage for singlton pregnancies .

    most people say that its not the inital number that matters but the doubling time .
    i have a scan on thursday hoping to see a baby & heartbeat .

    there is a website online that shows you beta ranges . just google beta hcg caculater and you should find it .

    but to be honest your number for 15 dpo is perfectly fine .

    are they doing another hcg blood test for you ?

    Don't know if they are doing more bloodwork. THey didnt mention it on the phone (FS) but I might contact my GP and see if they will do one in a couple of days?

    According to that table 529 is high then? What a minefield. WHy cant ttc and pregnancy be a tick box scenario!?!?!? :hissy:

    Thanks for answering girls :)

    You're here!! 529 is a great number, very very pregnant number :) There was a study that showed women who tested 300hcg or higher 16dpo all went on to have healthy pregnancies. That was of course just one study, but I always took it as good news as I was also over 300 by 16dpo.

    hi

    Mine were 306 at 16 dpo and 2256 at 21 dpo - I think yours are pretty high so shouldnt indicate any issues at all!

    Congratulations

    529 are very strong numbers so YAY :happydance:

    Mine were 129 @ 15dpo and last lot were 497 @ 18dpo.

    As one of the girls said, the initial number doesn't matter (so long as it is over 100 roughly when AF is due) so long as the numbers double every 48 hours up until week 6, then they don't double as fast I don't think.

    Want to add that I don't mean to offend anyone if they think I'm implying that any number below 300 @16dpo isn't good. My friend who is having a very healthy pregnancy was 320 @18dpo. This means at 16dpo, she was around 160. The study I was quoting Angelmarie is here: https://www.squidoo.com/16dpo and shows that 3/4 of women over 100 by 16dpo go on to have healthy pregnancies. However, this is only one study as I said and I agree that it is more important that the number is doubling, rather than what the number actually is.
