No we have done the deed in september. But I called the hospital and asked them to explain it better and she said that my HCG beta level from my quantatitive tests peaked at 276! So of course I went on the internet for more info about this test and basically I learned that:
When you are pregnant the level of hCG increases and usually doubles every two to three days. It then reaches a maximum level by the second or third month of pregnancy, followed by a decrease occurring in the third trimester.
Here are typical hCG Beta values in pregnant women up to 22 days post-retrieval (DPR)
or days post-ovulation (DPO).
DPR or DPO Amount of hCG in mIU/ml
10 5 - 50
12 10 - 100
14 20 - 200
16 40 - 400
18 70 - 800
20 140 - 1600
22 180 - 3200
Here are the hCG Beta values given by the number of weeks after ovulation:
after the 1st week and 2 days 5.0 to 50.0 mUI/ml
Between 1st and 2nd week 5.0 to 500.0 mUI/ml
Between 2nd and 3rd week 100.0 to 5,000.0 mUI/ml
Between 3rd and 4th week 500.0 to 10,000.0 mUI/ml
Between 4th and 5th week 1,000.0 to 50,000.0 mUI/ml
Between 5th and 6th week 10,000.0 to 100,000.0 mUI/ml
Between 6th and 8th week 15,000.0 to 200,000.0 mUI/ml
Between 8th and 12th week 10,000.0 to 100,000.0 mUI/ml
So I guess I am really a about month along?
I don't even know why I went there. They don't even deliver babies.
