    Please help according to dates I should be 10 weeks 3 day but dr. says by u/s and pelvic exam I am around 6 to 7 weeks. Hcg levels are almost 30000. I am going crazy I have another u/s in two weeks but I really need some type of peace of mind now. Any info would be great.

    Hi hun,
    Think all the girls have signed off for the night ~ will be back on in a few hours.
    As far as I know 30000-200000 mIU/ml HCG is normal for about 8-10 weeks into pregnancy. But having said that I'm pretty sure that it differs greatly between ppl. Come back in a few hours and the girls will have tons of advice and info for ya. :D

    hang in there...

    S.C.>

    Hi April :wave:

    The best place to work out how far you are along properly is an ultrasound (so I believed :? -)! If he/she was worried I'm sure they would have sent you if they have shown worry & have not sent you for an U/S at the EPU I would seriously consider asking them to do so!

    Your HCG level appears to be FAB

    Accordingly, the concentration of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) rises rapidly, frequently exceeding 100 mIU/ml by the first missed menstrual period and peaks in the range of 30,000-200,000 mIU/ml by 8-10 weeks into pregnancy.

    0-1 week: 0-50 IU/L
    1-2 weeks: 40 - 300
    3-4: 500 - 6,000
    1-2 months: 5,000 - 200,000
    2-3 months: 10,000 - 100,000
    2nd trimester: 3,000 - 50,000
    3rd trimester: 1,000 - 50,000
    Non-pregnant females: < 5.0
    Postmenopausal: < 9.5

    Although you have worked your dates out from your last period (I assume) you never actually know when you have ovulated unless of course you charted or used OPKs?). It's not always the middle of the month as most information will give you. Ovulation can take place twice in any one month also.

    Good luck!

    I did have an ultrasound done when I was supposed to be 9 weeks 3 days lmp, but u/s tech did not seem like she knew what she was doing. But needless to say she said I was measuring around 5 to 6 weeks. By lmp I should be almost 11 weeks, ob says I am about 7 weeks but did not seem too concerned. I have had irregular periods and he says that could be why. I belive I concieved on 9/14 had positive test on 9/23 does any of this sound normal to anyone?

    Sorry I must have been blind :lol:

    Irregular periods may swing in with what I said about ovulation - You can never be too sure when you did actually ovulate.

    Did everything seem fine for the weeks they think you may be?

    Whens your next U/S date?

    hi hun i was supposed to have been 7 weeks but when i went for my scan the sac only measured 5 weeks the sonographer said give and take 2 weeks also even they said there are 40 weeks in a pregnancy there is only really 38 as teh first 2 weeks you arent even pregnant so i would say that the doc is probably right and your scan wait until you go for your next one they will measure the baby and then tell you how many weeks you are good luck hope that helps spunky xxx

    My nest u/s is 11/15 my newest hcg levels have only gone up about 2000 in three days so now I don't know what to think. I am becoming more and more depressed. My breast are still sore and have morning sickness and headaches but I almost don't really feel preg anymore, I don't know if its just in my head or what. I do know I am going crazy.

    Hi hun,

    Try not to worry hun, you have no pains, no bleeding, you have sore breasts, yout Ob and sonographer are not concerned, so please try not to worry about things, you will drive yourself mad!

    I am sure if there was anything wrong you would be having a few scans to get to the bottom of things, I have had it done myself this time round for one concern or another! Try to take it in your stride hun and see what happens on Wednesday.....ask as many questions as you need to so you get your answers to set yor mind at rest!

    Take care hun and let us know how you get on! x

    They haven't really said anything just to wait and do the u/s. Okay girls today my breast not too sore, nipples a little, and morning sickness not too bad today. I beginning to just want to throw the towel in and just be greatful God Blessed me with three perfect little ones already. Its really sad to say but I just feel like I don't want to be preg anymore. Thank you all for your input and support trust me everything did help. I really looked foward to reading new post. Again THANK YOU ALL.

    Well, I went for my u/s and got to see the baby little stubs for arms and legs. Doctor said the baby died at 8 weeks. I couldn't stop crying. I went on Friday to have the d&c. They said to not have sex for two weeks I am wondering if we can start trying after the two weeks. I have heard it is easier to get preg after d&c but is it safe for new baby?

    I presume itll be fine to start trying again after those two weeks as long as you feel okay to do so.
