    Ladies I am feeling paranoid. I had blood taken on tuesday (20 dpo) and the doctor did not call on thursday as I was told he would. So I just called in and spoke with the receptionist, she said it came back positive. So I asked what the hcg levels were and she said 240. That seems awfully low to me but as she was not a doctor she had no clue, she just said it's positive. I am going to go back after work and have blood taken again but since it's the weekend I won't find out until Tuesday!! Have any of you ladies had levels this low and went on to have healthy pregnancies?? Am I being overly worried? What are normal hcg levels for early pregnancy? Thanks ladies!

    I had mine done at the end of 3weeks and they were 222. 48hours later they were 620 and continued to go up. Early scan yesterday revealed a little bub doing just fine :)

    I don't think you should worry as they seem fine and you may be out with your dates, I thought I was around 5 weeks when my hcg was done but works out I was only 3 and a bit! It's the second number that really counts x

    Thanks for thinking positive ladies. Unfortunately I am dead on with my dates as I used ovulation predictor tests, chart my temps and watch my cervix position and opening. I knew down to the exact moment I o'd this cycle as I had extreme o cramping. Also we only got to bd once on O day and none leading up to as ds was sick in our bed all week. This is what makes me so nervous, I know exactly how far I should be right down to the day. Had blood taken this aft, trying to stay hopeful that hcg has doubled as it has been 3 days since first test. Thanks again ladies :)

    After being crazy about HCG levels with my last pregnancy i have learned it is not so much about the number but more about if it is doubling. I really wouldn't worry yet, that number is not that low. I had looked on so many other forums and seen much lower numbers and they ended up having normal pregnancies.
