Does anyone know anything about hcg levels? I am 6 weeks pregnant and for the last 3 weeks I have had quantative hcg blood draws and at 3 and a half weeks my level was a 782, at 4 and a half weeks I was at 19,775 and this last week I was at 67,000. I know they are supposed to increase but do these numbers seen high?

HCG levels peak at about eight to 10 weeks of pregnancy and then decline, remaining at lower levels for the rest of the pregnancy. Here is a sample listing of expected HCG levels based on time after conception: * 0-1 week: 0-50 mIU/ml * 1-2 weeks: 40-300 mIU/ml * 3-4 weeks: 500-6,000 mIU/ml * 1-2 months: 5,000-200,000 mIU/ml * 2-3 months: 10,000-100,000 mIU/ml * 2nd trimester: 3,000-50,000 mIU/ml * 3rd trimester: 1,000-50,000 mIU/ml * Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml * Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml Greater-than-normal levels may indicate choriocarcinoma of the uterus, ectopic pregnancy, hydatidiform mole of the uterus, normal pregnancy, or ovarian cancer. Once you have had an ectopic prgnancy, you have an increased risk for another, so your HCG numbers may be monitored more carefully. Twins or Higher Pregnancies Twin pregnancies tend to show higher HCG levels on a given day of pregnancy. Twin HCG levels fall within the reported range of singletons, so, you can't a__sume anything based on the level alone. A higher level on a given day does increase your chances for twins, but there's no level above which you're guaranteed twins. Just some info that I thought you could use.
