ER visit and HCG question

I ended up at the ER Thursday night after some spotting which ended up being a very vascular and friable cervix.

There's a very, very wide range of what's considered "normal." Basically, hCG begins in your system when the baby implants. Implantation for some may happen as early as 4-5 days after conception, or for others it may happen as late as 13-14 days after conception. So, if there are two women who conceived on the same day, but who's babies implanted on two opposite ends of the spectrum, the babies may be the same "age" but the hCG count could be completely different, and both are considered normal!

To add to what the other ladies have mentioned, there really isn't a definite correlation between high hcg levels and multiples either. It does happen sometimes, but not always.

The only concern I'm aware of with really, really high hcg levels (which yours aren't) is molar pregnancies. Your numbers are right in the "normal" range for 7 weeks, which is 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml. Sounds like your LO is doing great.

Here's a chart with the rest of the "normal" ranges:

3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
4 weeks LMP: 5 - 426 mIU/ml
5 weeks LMP: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml
6 weeks LMP: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml
7 - 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
9 - 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml
13 - 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml
17 - 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml
25 - 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml
