My OB just called and said my hcg was 20 and they want to do another blood draw. Blood was taken @ 12DPO. Does this sound normal? Too low? I'm worried since I lost the last baby!!!

I found a chart online that says around wk 4 normal is anywhere from 3-426. That is quite a range, but I'd definitely say 20 falls within that. I don' think that the initial number matters too much, I think it's what it does. It should be doubling every 2-3 days. As long as your next draw is going up at a normal rate, it should be okay.

It sounds ok to me... with my last pregnancy my hcg at 11dpo (i think it was 11dpo???? ) was 21. I was told its not the number that is important its whether or not it doubles

OK the OB just called. My number is now 134. The nurse seemed a bit concerned and asked if I was spotting or cramping! (I'm not) My first blood draw was 12 DPO and it was 20. The 2nd draw I was 16 DPO and it was 134. To me it seems like the numbers are increasing at a good rate....but that darn nurse and the way she sounded. She is making me scared

Well, poo on her! Doubling every 2 days you would still be looking at only about 80! 134 sounds great to me! Seems to be doubling roughly every 36 hrs, which is fine!

My van broke down so I can't get out to get another blood test done. Hopefully we'll get a "new" van this weekend. I *may* have ovulated 2 days later which would make my blood tests done at 10 DPO & 14 DPO. And that would explain why my first number was 20. But either way my numbers are increasing!!!

Those numbers more than doubled in the average time period? Am I missing something? Why is she worried? According to the hcg doubling calculator, you're doubling every 1.5 days. That's really good. Why am I so confused? Call the doc and ask his/her opinion?
