  • If they didn't say anything or weren't concerned don't worry about it. hcg levels double every day that you're pregnant so yeah by 6 weeks they can be high.. no worries :)

  • Same anon that posted HCG levels here, lol. Forgot to say that those are considered normal range for a singleton. So you're probably okay and just not as far along as you've assumed. We don't all ovulate exactly two weeks after the start of our last period.

  • Why did you have to go to the ER?

  • Whats most important is that when you go back in 2-3 days is that that number doubles (approximately). Without having a second number, it's hard to know much other than you are definitely pregnant. If you are bleeding or continue to bleed, its a sign of two things- a miscarriage or a bleeding subchorionic hematoma thats bleeding out. (i had that happen this pregnancy)

    Best of luck.
