5 1/2 weeks and spotting UPDATE

Hi everyone,

I had my first bloodwork done today and talked with my doctor a few minutes ago. My HCG levels are at 4,600. I am between 5-6 weeks. Does anyone know what their HCG levels were during a normal pregnancy during 4 to 8 weeks? I just want an idea I guess as to where mine are. I go back Wednesday for another. If the number went up I will go back in another 4 days for another one. If they went down she said I won't need to go back for more bloodwork because that will mean I have miscarried.

Thanks everyone!

Re: 5 1/2 weeks and spotting UPDATE

I don't know what mine were but from what I've heard that sounds about right. Anyway the actual number can vary a lot from one woman to another, the important thing is that the numbers increase rapidly( double every 2 days). Sounds like you are doing good, I had bright red bleeding at 6 weeks with my 3rd and everything was fine.

You can see where others have recorded their beta numbers over at the Beta Base ( http://betabase.info/showBasicChart.php?type=Single). Honestly, though, my doctors have all sworn that it really just depends on doubling time and the specific pregnancy.

Thank you! I had some bright red blood Monday....or actually looked a hot pink! But Since then I didn't spot on 2 days, but not straight, and the other were pinkish to brownish.

Now the wait until Wed. !

Good luck, Lauri! In all of my pregnancies, I've spent the days between betas freaking out and obsessing. I hope it all works out for you!

Also, I know it's not exactly the same situation time-wise, but I had bright red bleeding for a day when I was around 8 weeks along, and both of my babies seem to be just fine. I was terrified, though.

I am so happy for you, I read your signature! I am scared too, so I know what you felt. I will pray the remainder of your pregnancy goes smoothly for you !
