    Just got an email from the gyno at the hospital where I had my test done. She looked over my results and wants me to have another blood test as she thinks my levels are too low. Got to go in on Saturday morning for another test. Can I ask what everyone had at the 4-5 week mark? Mine were 233.69 at 4 and a half weeks (roughly) and my progesterone was around 19. I have no idea when I ovulated as I didn't test this month (had chemical pregnancy last month and cycle was all out of whack). Did anyone else have levels on the low side and carried on to have a successful pregnancy? I feel worried already and I only just found out yesterday... :sad1:

    That sounds fine to me! My HCG levels were a worry to start with.

    At 8dpo- 20
    At 10 dpo- 28

    Dr said its not a good sign, so went to see my own GP and he said it can take a while for HCG to start doubling, depends on when baby implants etc.

    One week later my levels were up to 408 and then 48 hours over 900!

    I really think you will be fine, the actually levels arent as important as how quickly they rise.
