Does anyone know at approx. 4 weeks pregnant how high hcg levels are on average /healthy levels and why-if they are at healthy levels, are they sometimes not enuff to show a bfp on an hpt?

.. to add to this... is it possible the body is pregnant and actually showing some signs of pregnancy (thus, hormones high enuff for that) yet for the actual test there are not enuff? does this make sense?

i think it might be if the actual implantation hasnt quite taken place yet,even if it has they say sometimes it takes weks or months to show a positive but thats when you get a blood test. they say implantation can take a lot longer for some eggs. when do you think you o'd?

i think it has to have. if i conceived it was jan 20-27. i felt weird af cramps on jan 31. i thought that was it. but anything is possible actually. i think it was the water and grape juice and possibly that my period is technically due the 18th since i always run a 40 day cycle. or maybe im not pregnant. im just made my body is feeling this way and my b___bs look like this, if imnot. cause then i worry wat the hell is actually wrong with me.

I tested positive with this pregnancy at 3 weeks 4 days and my level was only 52. Now I will be 17 weeks on thursday, and I find out the s_x of the baby on the 21st... very excited!!

My HCG levels are 163, well they doubled by now.. but At 4 weeks it was. They said that was good and high.

i'm interested in knowing if u tested also.

hey ladies yes tested at 8pm after drinking practically two Poland spring water's and then grape juice w/dinner (three tests in a pack so figured spare one) and then an hour later tested and got bfn. my last af was 1/8 and i am always a 40 day cycle at times its seemingly 44 days. so technically my af is due approx. 2/18. so, what do you think? and plus .. the water. i dunno i mean i have my appt. the 26th which by then if i still get bfn at least ill get the blood work for solid confirmation of N or P. this is the first time in my life that i am getting such diff bodily changes. ive harped on the things that were prominent as opposed to things that were just more of the same. i am going to wait and keep testing until time of doctors but i think i should wait until after the 18th. if i am not - then im not, as dh said this morning, we will keep trying and it will happen when its right. plus, we just started and i do not chart etc., nor do i plan to. everyone i know just does it and gets pregnant (lucky them hehe) But if that be the case(that I am not) then that means my hormones were brutal to me this month and this is a ma__sive coincidence. that or i was fertilized but no sticky bean :(

Also: there were some women on here that have poked fun at myself and others for harping on every thing and claim we are in denial etc. i knew my time was coming. this is a happy time and its a shame grown women can be so infantile. i don't chart and think every sneeze affects my ovulation. i do the dance, and love it, and then hope for the best. when for the first time my body reacts certain ways that are not usual for me, etc.- i point it out.. and share. it is an exciting time and we learn a lot from this. but of course there is always a balance in the Universe and even a place for women to share and not judge.. has to hold such nonsense. We all have our repet_tion and should at times, just relax but so what.. this is supposed to be a joyful time so let us be!!! and I am not here to argue but I have every right to defend my name.

i think u should wait and test on Monday that way we will both have news to come and share with each other. On Monday i have to go get an ultrasound done because as u know i am 7 weeks late for af and all urine test are BFN. i was suppose to get the blood work but the weather is horrible so i will do that tomorrow and hopefully its back to the office by monday. but i figured i didnt need the blood work if i'm getting an ultrasound on monday anyway. but it wouldn't hurt to do both so that what i plan to do. so monday i can tellu if i'm am mommy or not and u can tell me if u got the BFP

GO SANDY81!!! I totally agree with you girl, I am not looking for an argument either but I agree with Sandy 100%.

 

missjazzyjay - February 13

i agree with u Sandy. Some ppl are just ignorant and inconsiderate. Don't worry about them...we are here to support u. I will love to know the outcome of ur test weather its BFN or BFP...some women are just unhappy no matter what so it causes them to judge others. Keep ya head up ma...and good luck on ur test Monday

 

cherryzz08 - February 13

Sandy If AF is expected the 18th, I would wait till Monday to test. Good Luck and since its early you should test with first mornings urine. Dont let anybody get you down. We just know our bodies better then they do!! Thats how we sense every little thing thats going on with our body! That means when we get pregnant we KNOW!!

Aww ladies you are great. Even getting a BFN now or later it's nice to have support and some kind words go a long way. In regards to testing Monday I am a little leary due to the fact since I am at 38-seemingly 44 day cycles I would say Im usually on a 40 day so thus, the 18th would be 40 days so therefore I would guess to wait until a few days after? But you know what I will perhaps begin testing then and let the N or P be confirmed on the 26th at the docs. If I am not I must say my hormones were savage to me and at least I can report that to the doc and see why I would get all these things collectively the same month I ttc. Miss J I have been doing lots of online reading and Ive read the docs urine test is not even as sensitive as the hpt's so the blood work will be good. Are you sure they will do an ultra sound? Cherry-how you feeling?
