Well Ladies I got my BFP alright....I had my beta HCG tested and it is only 120 at 5 weeks....The doctor is being an ##### he said oh well! I mean what do I do? He said that I have to go back tomorrow (Friday to test again) but he also said it should be like 30,000 with that look on his face as to say here we go again....I don't know how much more of this I can take...This will be my 3rd miscarriage...thats if my body wakes up and realizes....or my 3rd D&C because my body just don't want to let go.....I am a total mess...I think I may go to the doctor and ask for so time off work...and really concentrate on me..Any advise would be greatfully taken...I really hate my life...all I want is a baby whay is this so HARD!
the number isn't as important as the doubling time within 48 hours: here is what I found online:
The numbers in the chart below are only a guideline, and are so broad as to be almost useless. They are here to give you a small measure of reassurance, although the only true way to know if your hCG level is rising appropriately is to take two tests about three days apart. The reason for the large range in the chart is to assume you may be as much as 7 days off on your ovulation, and to allow for larger numbers for pregnancies with more than one baby. In my own experience and with those women who have shared their numbers on the bulletin board, if you are rock-sure of your ovulation date, your number tends to be about 2/3 of the highest number for your week.
Week since last menstrual period began Amount of hCG
3 weeks= 5 - 50 (less than 5 means you are not pregnant)
4 weeks= 5 - 426
5weeks= 19 - 7,340
6weeks= 1,080 - 56,500
7-8weeks= 7,650 - 229,000
9-12* weeks= 25,700 - 288,000
*You will likely see the hCG rates go DOWN after the first trimester, when it is no longer a factor in pregnancy or miscarriage because the placenta has taken over. At 9 weeks, however, your baby will be monitored by ultrasound rather than hCG levels.
so at 5 weeks you are still within range. .... besides it how they rise that is the REAL indicator... at six weeks I was on 1531..... I hate to say it but your dr sounds like the doesn't know what the heck he is talking about... pls hang on and hopefully fridays' numbers will do what they are supposed too!!!
