  • my HGC level was very high even at 2.5 weeks!!! the pregnancy test was immediate, no waiting even a few seconds... from what my mother says, most of the pregnancy tests she reads at the doctor's office.. the line is very faint and they are usually further along than I was... HGC levels do vary.. supposedly they double every day that you're pregnant

  • your baby is just probably measuring small.

  • HCG levels vary from pregnancy to pregnancy. Also, US estimates are only as good as the tech who performs them. They aren't always accurate.

  • this early its no big deal for the US to not be100% accurate, and HGC can fluctuate alot.As long as numbrs go up and baby keeps growing, its all good.

  • HCG levels cant tell you how far along you are just becauses the gaps are to big and the numbers do over lap if your 4 weeks and some odd days then odds are that is more accurat(sp) because the baby is only the size of a jelly bean the farther along you get the harder it is to tell exactly the early ones are the ones they go by .. im sure things are fine i just wouldnt really put to much thoughrt in the HCG thing because some levels can be higher then other women i know mine were
