VERY CONFUSED

I am getting another test tomorrow so please don't tell me to wait. I have been trying to figure out hcg levels. I would estimate that I am about 4 weeks pregnant bc my lmp was on 10/10/10. When my hcg level was tested yesterday it was 39. I have been researching but still can't figure out if this is normal. I'm a first time mom and am freaked out about the possibility of a miscarriage. Am I within normal range????

  • Anything within the range of 10-425 is "normal". But really, the amount of ONE test doesn't tell you anything. All that matters is that the number goes up, preferably doubles every 48 hours....

  • I was told that you have to be at least a 5 to be considered pregnant, and that your number has to double every 48 hours. When I got my first test, I was only at 23, but when they tested me 2 days later I was a 63 so they said that was definately pregnant. I was only 4 weeks pregnant when they tested me. We did fertility treatments, and they monitored me closly. I would think that becuase your numbers are already higher than mine that you would be pregnant, but without the second test confirming the numbers are rising, then I can't say for sure. Sorry. I know how hard it is to wait. I wish you the best of luck! Sending baby dust your way!
