Hi Freestone, your levels seem high and good - did you speak to your doctor about it? On a website I visited, it said For HCG levels >6, 000 mIU/ml, the expected doubling time is >96 hours. Which means it will takes AT LEAST 4 days for your levels to double - and your levels are way way over 6, 000 - so I don't think your numbers are indicative of a problem at all. Take care and try not to worry, I know that is almost impossibe :) xx xx

Freestone; I agree with jessie - don't panic about your numbers because they actually sound ok to me. The ultrasound is a much better indicator of viability at your stage of pregnancy anyway - the specailist I see doen't even worry about doing initial HCG tests, as the results can sometimes be indistinct and even misleading. Your ultrasound with check for a heartbeat and make sure that your size is approximately correct for your dates. I knwo how totally nerve-wracking it is waiting for that first ultrasound - I have had 2 miscarriages this year (I also have a 2yr old DD), and so when I fell pregnant again a couple of months ago I was sooooo nervous. My SIL also had 3 miscarriages in a row after her first DD. She has since had another little girl and is now pregnant again - so don't worry about being able to have another baby - the fact that you already have a healthy little boy is a great indicator that you'll be able to do it again. I hope everything goes well for you, {{HUGS}} and lots of luck, juju
