    Hello ladies. Excuse the paranoia but I've MC twice before and had a chemical. Had my hcg levels checked 13dpo and it was 166, 3 days later it was 919 (450% increase), 4 days later it went up to 3,699 (300% increase plus there was an extra day before testing). It's still increasing at great levels I know, but I expected within the first week of testing it still would increase by 400% especially with that extra day in between. Do you think this means anything?

    No, I don't think it means anything. At some point hcg levels off and even starts to drop. Is your doctor concerned?

    I only talked with the nurse and she didn't really say much, just that it could fluctuate.

    Aslong as there double'n every 2-3 days then thats all that matters. Its not the actual numbers themselves that are important but the rate in which they increase, Good luck x

    Double or close every 2 -3 days is great. When they get above 2000 they start to slow
