Spotting And HCG Levels

karenkoz - September 29

Hi - I'm about 5 weeks pregnant and had my first blood test last Wed at my doctor. She said my HCG level was at 182 on Wed and wants me to come back for a second test tomorrow. I'm a bit freaked about it since she thought the level was a bit low for 5 weeks. Plus I had spotting on Saturday (after s_x on Friday morning though) and it has stopped. I'm so worried about a miscarriage. Anyone have the same thing happen?

The hcg range for a 5 week pregnancy is 19-7,340. Typically they will have you do bloodwork two times in the beginning within 48 hours to make sure it's doubling. I wouldn't worry about it. Sometimes your cervix can be more sensitive during pregnancy which would account for the bleeding after s_x. Don't worry unless it continues, is bright red or is accompanied by cramping. Of course, you can always call the doctor to put your mind at ease. Congrats on your pregnancy.
