  • You WANT your levels to go up, lol. They go up until 24 weeks and then they start to come back down until they finally even out and stop doing anything.

    3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
    4 weeks LMP: 5 - 426 mIU/ml
    5 weeks LMP: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml
    6 weeks LMP: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml
    7 - 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
    9 - 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml
    13 - 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml
    17 - 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml
    25 - 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml

  • However, after looking at your numbers, you seem a little low. You should be doubling your HCG levels every 2-3 days. Copy and paste the link I provided, and it will tell you all about HCG levels.

  • I was told that I possibly lost a twin. It is so hard to say. I am trying to stay positive as this is my 4th pregnancy and the others have failed. I am concerned about taking the methrotrexate and the pregnancy could be viable.

  • I'm confused...were you given methotrexate? Methotrexate is used to terminate early ectopic pregnancies.
