Dr Thinks My HCG Levels Are Low So Confused

At 5 weeks my hcg was 886, on 5w3d they were at 2000. dr was happy that the level moved in the right direction but she says the levels are really low. according to everything ive read, my levels are normal. she wants me to keep testing every 2 day but im so confused. has any one else had a level around 2000 at 5w3d? ive had 6 miscarriages due to low progesterone and this is the first one taking progesterone and the first time my hcg levels have gone up at all. im so excited because i feel great but im really confused as to why the doctor is only "mildly optimistic". also, if im even a few days off about the conception date, the #'s could be out by thousands at this point. thanks for reading my post!

my doctor must be confused, maybe she thinks im 5 weeks post ovulation, that would make more sense. but im only 3 weeks and the #'s are avrage for 3 weeks. she said they should be near 50,000 this week, thats insane for only being 23days post ovulation. any one had a doctor mess up like this?

The hCG levels that I use are on obfocus dot com which shows a level of 19-7340 for 5 weeks from lmp. It's quite a large range which you are well within. I'm so sorry to hear of your losses, alot of women on this site have had alot of luck with the progesterone. I wonder if your doc is just being cautious due to your past losses? I would question her about it. I know she is now checking to be sure that the levels double every 48 hours which is also very important (I'm sure you're aware). I really can't recall what my levels were during pregnancy. I wish you tons and tons of luck and give that doctor a call to explain her concerns to you.
