I too have been super worried this enitre pregnancy about my HCG levels. My first blood test was when I was about 25 DPO (I think) and they were in the high 600's- but everyone else on this board had them in the thousands at that point. The next bloodwork they were at 18000, so obviously rising, but still on the lower end of the scale. Everything I read on line scared me and I thought for sure I was doomed, but we heard a heartbeat after the last round of bloodwork, so as of that point the numbers had to have been fine if the baby looked good then.

I agree with doxielover, that is what I have always been told, that the number doubling is important and that first number is pretty much meaningless. People's numbers also vary soooo much in each stage, knowing other people's numbers wont help much.
Well I found out that my levels did double since the last time, so I am more relieved than ever !!!!!
It is hard to take things day by day, like everyone tells you too, especially if you have m/c before.
The worry just hangs over like a cloud.
But with all my prayers, I hope this pregnancy is successful
Well, that's fantastic news!!! I know what you mean, though--it's hard to relax. I want to punch anyone who tells me to do that. Hehe. Miscarriage has tainted us all, but we'll get through this. That's what this board is for, after all, right?
