HCG Levels... Help.

I', 7 wks 4 days and went to the ER last night because i had a ton of very dark red blood discharge. LOTS! They did a pelvic and said everything was closed. Ultrasound shows a good strong heartbeats. They did an HCG beta and it came back 84,000. I'm still have slight brown/red discharge but way less. I've never had this before... Anyone know if 84,000 is good for 7.5 weeks? I'm freaked out. I've been so sick this pregnancy i'd hate to lose it now :(

  • Weeks after conception and hCG levels:
    0-1 week: 0-50 IU/L
    1-2 weeks: 40 - 300
    3-4: 500 - 6,000
    1-2 months: 5,000 - 200,000
    2-3 months: 10,000 - 100,000
    2nd trimester: 3,000 - 50,000
    3rd trimester: 1,000 - 50,000
    Non-pregnant females: <5.0
    Postmenopausal: <9.5

    As you can see, there is great variation in hCG levels. It isn't the absolute value that matters in these results, but the change in values. In a viable embryo, doubling generally takes place every 36 hours.

  • If everything is closed, then I would say that you are ok for now. I would take it easy for the next couple of days & relax. Your body could be warning you that you are pushing yourself too hard right now.

  • They should definitely be doing another blood test to see if your numbers are going up/doubling after 36-48 hours. That is really the only way to know for sure if things are progressing as they should be. Everythig esle sounds positive though. Did they say thet were going to do another blood test?
