HCG levels back - reading 2800 at 5 weeks + 1

I got my HcG levels back today and over the 4 days they had increased from 416 to just over 2800! I spoke to a different GP this morning who was rubbish. I asked if these levels were good and she replied saying "to be honest I don't really know how to read them, but they have increased so that must be good" no exactly the response I expected ha. I did ask to speak to another GP but she said I'd have to call tomorrow. I still don't know if this is good or not? x x x

Hi Pammi912,

Yes I spoke to him this morning, he said on Friday he was worried, however, looking at the blood results from Monday he was a lot more positive! I've had more bloods taken again today and phone for the results tomorrow afternoon. He's looking for HCG levels >4000 and if they are he said it's highly unlikely it's another ectopic and will be looking more like a normal pregnancy. Keeping everything crossed and I'll update you tomorrow with results.... Could this be the best christmas present ever?! X x x

Hi, Had my scan today, it was amazing, she gave me about 10 pictures, and although Im only 6 weeks and 3 days, the baby measured 9mm which she said was equivalent to 7 weeks 1 day.. so relieved cant put it into words. Got another scan in 2 1/2 weeks and have got my first appointment with the midwife on 30/12. Xx

ps Looking forward to your news on Monday.

Hey, me too, I have had lots of cramping, but no bleeding but then I have been taking cyclogest, which is really horrible, but I spoke to my nurse and she told me it is normal to have some bleeding. Xx

Ps got everything crossed and looking for good news

Hi Pammi912,

I'm really good thank you, it's lovely to hear from you! How have you been? Have you had your next scan? We got out 12 week scan through the other day - 4th feb were so excited! It doesn't seem real as Ive not really had any symptoms other then really tender breasts and extremely tired all the time ha have you been feeling ok x

Reply

Well I have been feeling awful, not really able to keep anything down, but I'm hoping when I stop taking the cyclogest tablets I'll feel a lot better. I had a nine week scan a couple of weeks ago, and was amazing, heard the baby's heart beat, and could see it flapping its little arms and legs. Have got my 12 week scan next Wednesday, so looking forward to that but also feeling really scared as well. You are so lucky you don't have the sickness, I'm just lucky, I can go to sleep at work, otherwise I'd be dead. Keep in touch. Xx

Will do, it feels like a countdown, normally time flies for me as work is normally so busy, but the last few weeks have felt like a lifetime. :-) xx
