Hi-
At 15 weeks, I did the quad test, which came back fine but I noticed that my free beta HCG levels were nearly 4 times the normal level. (3.97 multiples of the median or 98th percentile). After googling articles about it, it looks like that high of a free beta high HCG can be associated with some scary problems later on in pregnancy. This is my 4th pregnancy/babe-to-be. I've done all my births natural and had a great homebirth last time and I do not know what my free beta HCG levels were the last times.
Should I be worried about this high free beta HCG? Do I risk out of homebirth? Or am I just being overly paranoid?
Thanks!
edited to add: I have a singleton and no sign of a molar - thanks
