now i found this info in another thread and another kidn member also gave me similar data....2 to 1 week = 5 - 50 1-2 weeks = 50 - 500 2-3 weeks = 100 - 5,000 3-4 weeks = 500 - 10,000 4-5 weeks = 1,000 - 50,000 5-6 weeks = 10,000 - 100,000 6-8 weeks = 15,000 - 200,000 2=3 months = 10,000 - 100,000 my question at4 w if my dates are correct my hcg levels were 112 but according to the table the range is 100-1000...now is that not quite abit less...my tech told me the unit for my readings were IU/L but everywhere i look units are shown as mIU/L or in 2 digits if they are in IU/L...that would mean mine are way to high...why am i not getting this????duh!!!! what does a 3 digit number reading so early in pregnancy mean as in my case 10 dpo=112, 12dpo = 284????

Hi, they do seem a little higher than average but there's such a wide variation in HCG levels in viable pregnancies that its impossible to tell what's going on based on HCG tests alone. I think you'll definitely know when you have your ultrasound. Is that next week?

Yas, can you call the nurse and find out exactly what she meant?

well i wont be able to now..and i feel like i will be nagging...as these nurses always seem a bit 'highly strung'...i could wait until my antenatal appointment but all be revealed i guess at my next us on tuesday... just interesting to ponder over it in the meantime as i never really understoo dit to begin with....thanks megan..but why do yuo say they seem high???based on what units?i mean 112 how is that high if the range for 3-4 w is 500-10,000? or 2-3 w is 100-500? please if you dont mind can you explain how you make out these readings????how do you judge they are high or low...?

Well I googled it and found this site: http://www.webwomb.com/hpt_levels_hcg_levels.htm There are other sites on the web that show it too but I thought this one seemed a little easier to see the levels.

I went online and found charts that list the levels as mIU/L or IU/L. The range is huge. I guess the only thing to know is that your levels have at least doubled which is great. Here is a chart that I have found. All this DPO, LMP stuff gets confusing! from conception from LMP (mIU/ML or IU/L) 7 days 3 weeks 0 to 5 14 days 28 days 3 to 426 21 days 35 days 18 to 7,340 28 days 42 days 1080 to 56,500 35 - 42 days 49 - 56 days 7,650 to 229,000 43 - 64 days 57 - 78 days 25,700 to 288,000 57 - 78 days 79 - 100 days 13,300 to 253,000 17 - 24 weeks 2nd trimester 4060 to 65,400 25 wks to term 3rd trimester 3640 to 117,000 After several days postpartum nonpregnant levels (<5)"

Hi there, I wish I could help but from what I've learned, levels can be all over the map! When I first found out I was expecting (at 4wks) I was told that my levels were in the normal range for a singleton birth. My uterus was also in the normal range for a sigle at 6wks. Boy was everyone surprised when an u/s at 7wks showed twins!! Healthy ones at that! Who knows what you're going to find. Good luck!

Yes, your numbers seem high. At 13 dpo my HCG was at 217. Although I abhor your selfish desire for multiples, I wish you luck in your pregnancy. For the baby's sake.
