Compare HCG Levels

Monica (a concerned mommie) - May 6

Hi, the 1st day of my last period was Mar 23 so my EDD is 28 Dec, anywway, i went to the ER cuz i was having some brown spotting, at 1st they suspected ectopic since they didn't see anything in the uterus. I was told to get my blood drawn in 48 hrs to check my HCG levels. The initial was 2874 then 4079 and the final (from yesterday) was 6161. Are these numbers normal? So i guess that would put me from 4-5 weeks. I go back monday for an ultrasound, so I hope then they can see the fetus and hear the heart beat. Was it too early to see anything during the ER visit? That really had me worried that nothing was seen. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!!!! :)

 

CHH - May 7

I'm not sure how the hcg levels should go. I had mine done at 6w1d, 25000 and 6w3d, 35000. My doctor is concerned. I'm terrified. I have an ultrasound on monday. I hope everything is ok. I've been reading that the hcg levels double every 48 hours early (when the levels are below 1000) and take a little longer, 48 - 72 hours, between 1000 and 6000, and then, above 6000 it takes > 96 hours to double. My doctor didn't tell me this. She just said it should be doubling. But I've found countless sites / articles that say it takes longer as it gets higher. Does that make any sense or am I just rambling?
