  • The levels can be pretty variable. You'll have to have a comparison from that base line and also another ultrasound.

  • That is very high for 3wks, but if you go off of you LMP you would be about 6 wks. Did they u/s your fallopian tubes? A tubal pregnancy often produces a "psudo-sac" in the uterus that never develops a baby and high Hcg numbers.

  • they ultra sounded everything just gestational sac. but to they days i had intercourse and believe i ovulated that would be right on time.

  • Mine were really high at 3 weeks and 4 weeks and my dr said there is a cance of multiples with those levels but I haven't had an ultrasound yet so I'm not sure. But there are other reasons hcg levels can be high like a tubal pregnancy or molar pregnancy.

  • I had high hCG like that at 4 weeks and thought it might be twins but it ended up being ectopic in an unknown location, probably somewhere on my bowel.

  • my gestational sac is in normal location, and measuring good, no tubal or anything like that....
