1057 HCG as of the 28th woo-hoo! That's good, right?

Sounds like it is in the range of good! Congrats! Now that it is over 1000, there is a good chance they can see something on u/s- you should tell them you want a dating u/s!

They are making me go in for one more blood test before they schedule it

thats good though. <My levels were at 14000 and the sack was still too small to be measured. There is a HUGE range for HCG.

Re: No idea how far along I am (transported from TTC forum)

New HCG 4930... I thought I would be twice that by now... I'm wondering if I should be worried. The doctor's office is supposed to call me tomorrow morning to let me know if I need to go for another blood test or if I can have an ultrasound... I'm guessing they'll send me for another test.

I just want to see my baby... I just want everything to be ok

Re: No idea how far along I am (transported from TTC forum)

Hang in there. Like I said there is a HUGE range of HCG, while it "should double every two to three days" that varies for women. As it grows, it should reassure you. It won't stop the worrying, but it helps. Trust me, HCG plummets when there is a loss. Or grows very slow. My every 2 day draws showed a 2,000 increase.. I was at 15,000 on day and 2 days later at 16,000/ thats an issue. Your's sounds good to me. GL.

Re: No idea how far along I am (transported from TTC forum)

Sounds like a good number to me!
HCG should double every 2-3 days on average, but there is a very wide range of normal!
Theoretically, if you look at your pregression, on the 25th or 26th (2-3 days after your test on the 23rd) your number doubled would be 406. Your number on the 28th (2-3 days after that) is more than double at 1057. Another theoretical number 2-3 days later (30th or 31st) should have put you at 2114. 3 days after the 31st, you are more than doubled at 4930.
(Theoretical numbers in)
12/23 203 HCG
(12/25 or 26- 406)
12/28 1057 HCG
(12/30 or 31- 2114)
01/03 4930 HCG

Some more info to reassure you:
"As your pregnancy develops, the increase slows down significantly. Between 1,200 and 6,000 mIU/ml serum, the hCG usually takes about 72-96 hours to double, and above 6,000 mIU/ml, the hCG often takes over four or more days to double."
