Mine were really high. I feel really weird this time, don't know why. But it is all making me super antsy.
Anyone here have hcg levels taken this pregnancy?
I had mine taken way back when I first got my positive hpt. It was 51 one day and 353 4 days later. a fairly rapid doubling time, but nothing wild, I don't think (though I AM experiencing much worse ms than in my last pg- I don't remember my numbers then) Are yours high enough to somehow be concerned?
I did some research a few days ago as well and basically they believe that hcg is higher with multiples but it varies so much from pregnancy to pregnancy, woman to woman, etc and the ranges for singleton vs. multiples overlap almost completely so it is impossible to know until you have an ultrasound. Don't worry until you have a reason to.
2nd blood draw came back that was done about 2.5 days after the first and it was a bit over 4x more than the first one. I have been having some weird left side pain and am prepping to leave for 9 days for a hospital stay out of state with my 3 and 1 yr olds, so she asked if I would be okay with a sono this afternoon to make sure nothing was going on. I agreed, only since the level of pain on that side is so out of whack. Sono in 30 min. I am pretty convinced there is just one, as I feel stellar otherwise, but will be good to know for sure.
Just got home. My sono to rule out twins seems to confirm an ectopic pregnancy. I am 14 dpo now and they saw nothing in the uterus. They also saw nothing in the tube, but Dr says it does not matter. hgc levels will continue to rise. It is a little messy because we are supposed to drive 8 hours tomorrow with my kids, for a week at a Children's Hospital. I will need to terminate the ectopic pregnancy so it does not rupture, but am waiting on a call back to see if I can do that chemically while traveling, or will need surgery in the city we are traveling to. I am a little overwhelmed right now. A little sad. This pregnancy was unexpected by a long shot. And our 1 year old and 3 year old are both mid-treatment for a health condition and are sick a lot and will need a lot a care for a long time. So timing wise, I was trying to be okay with it. Oddly, I am sadder than I expected. But have an odd peace that everything happens for a reason.
Well, another update! My GP, who ordered the sono, called my OB. OB called me. Said my hcg levels at 11dpo were 107 and at 14dpo were 448. She said that often they do not see an egg sack until hcg hits 1500. And that my rise of 4x in 72 hours was great. They are doing another hcg tomorrow before we leave town for 8 days, and if that one has doubled, and I have no pain while gone, they will assume it is viable! And if I do have any pain, they will do a sono at the hospital we will be at and see if they can see anything then. SOOO, I am still to assume I am pregnant. :) And luckily we will be at the hospital this next week if something happens.
