Here is some information from the American Pregnancy Association regarding hcg in pregnancy:
Guideline to hCG levels during pregnancy:
hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :
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
Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml
* These numbers are just a GUIDELINE-- every woman’s level of hCG can rise differently. It is not necessarily the level that matters but rather the change in the level.
Remember, as I said, every woman and every pregnancy is different. Do you have other uterine issues? I have a severely tipped uterus, and that makes it really hard to see anything on early u/s until things are a bit bigger. This is one of the reasons why my hcg levels could be really high, and we still not see much via trans-vag u/s. Just another thought.
I do know other people who have experienced the blighted ovum too, but I'll hope things turn out better for you.
