The nurse called today w/ my results of the first hcg level (I had it drawn yesterday).


My progesterone was 35 which is great and my hcg was 7403 at 22 dpo.


I go for another blood draw tomorrow.

Carol:

Wow, that is high! Perhaps you will soon be Carol, Mom to Seven!!!

Here is some info about hCG levels for you. Hope this is helpful!

The range of HCG levels in the blood during pregnancy is huge; a single value will not indicate a normal pregnancy! in fact a number of values are necessary before making a number of determinations, including how far along the pregnancy is. Consider the following figures (based on days past ovulation (DPO); all HCG levels and ranges are averages):

• DPO, 14. HCG level, 48 mIU/ml. Range: 17-119 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 15. HCG level, 59 mIU/ml. Range: 17-147 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 16. HCG level, 95 mIU/ml. Range: 33-223 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 17. HCG level, 132 mIU/ml. Range: 17-429 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 18. HCG level, 292 mIU/ml. Range: 70-758 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 19. HCG level, 303 mIU/ml. Range: 111-514 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 20. HCG level, 522 mIU/ml. Range: 135-1690 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 21. HCG level, 1061 mIU/ml. Range: 324-4130 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 22. HCG level, 1287 mIU/ml. Range: 185-3279 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 23. HCG level, 2034 mIU/ml. Range: 506-4660 mIU/ml.
• DPO, 24. HCG level, 2637 mIU/ml. Range: 540-10,000 mIU/ml.

Look most closely at progression: during the huge majority of early pregnancies (80-90%), the level will double every couple of days, or 72 hours. As your pregnancy progresses, levels rise and that doubling time increases. The expected doubling time for HCG levels:

• Under 1200 mIU/ml: 48-72 hours.
• Between 1200 to 6000 mIU/ml: 72-96 hours.
• Over 6000 mIU/ml: more than 96 hours

HCG levels rise during the first 8 to 10 weeks of pregnancy then decline slowly for the second and third trimesters. The following presents some average expected HCG levels based on time after conception:

• week: 0-50 mIU/ml
• 1-2 weeks: 40-300 mIU/ml
• 3-4 weeks: 500-6,000 mIU/ml
• 1-2 months: 5,000-200,000 mIU/ml
• 2-3 months: 10,000-100,000 mIU/ml
• 2nd trimester: 3,000-50,000 mIU/ml
• 3rd trimester: 1,000-50,000 mIU/ml
• Non-pregnant females: < 5.0 mIU/ml
• Postmenopausal females: < 9.5 mIU/ml
