@Evie19:  why are you devastated?  Mine was 112 at 4w and tripled 48 hours later.  The average hcg is 150 at 4 weeks.  I don’t understand your devastation?

@Evie19:  600 is a great hCG for 4 weeks! Check this website out:

http://www.betabase.info/showDailyData.php?type=basic&multiples=Single&dpo=14

The average hCG for 14dpo (aka 4weeks) is 100-200.

Beyond that though, the important thing is whether or not the number doubles, despite what it starts out as. Even if your beta was only 60 today, as long as its at least 120 in 48 hours, you’d still be fine.

I think you’ll be absolutely fine!

@Evie19:  600 is actually pretty decent for 4 weeks, depending on when you actually ovulated and implanted. I’m sorry your doctor made you feel insecure. You only implanted within the past week and the level double every 48 hours. Is she having you do a repeat in 48 hours to check if the level is doubling? A single hCG level is pretty much useless at determining whether a pregnancy is viable.

ETA: Sorry just saw that she is doing a follow up in 48 hrs. I bet you’ll see a nice doubled number by then. Good luck!!

Just was reading your previous post. Looks like you ovulated around the 7th which would put you right at 15 or 16 or so DPO. If I had an hCG of 600 at that time I’d be thrilled!!!

@Evie19:  WTH??? That’s insane!! I can’t understand why she would say that! I hope you prove her wrong! And maybe find a new doc… is this an OB/GYN or a regular doctor?

No no no, you’re getting confused. Levels below 1200 double every 48 hours. That doesn’t mean the level is low, just that at lower than 1200, the number should be doubling every 48 hours. After 1200 it can slow down to doubling every 48-72 hours.

Look at this chart:

http://www.babymed.com/hcg-level-in-early-pregnancy

It shows that at 4w0d the level starts around 100, and by the end of week 4 (4w6d) the level can be upwards of almost 5,000. It’s a huge range. But 600 is a perfect number!! I promise, trust me, I’ve had a MC. I have scrutinized more hcg numbers than you can imagine. You are in good shape!!

@Evie19:  Yuck, I’m sorry you are dealing with this woman. She’s out there. And sorry but she’s just wrong. I don’t know what she’s thinking.
