so, I am 4wk 1d today. There is no question on my dates because of my dh being on deployment. my beta today is only 78. On the lab results it says i should be 100-5000 right now. I take another in 48 hrs, and I know everyone says the doubling is most important. but I feel sick right now. I wish my husband was home right now. I don't know how I am going to stay calm until wednesday. has anyone had an hcg that low around that time and been fine?

Yep - with my last pregnancy, my beta at 4 week was 23. I lost the pregnancy but not until 12 weeks and it had nothing to do with the HCG levels.

HCG Calculator and hCG Level Tool | BabyMed.com

If you look at the graph on that site, average hCG for 15 DPO is 59.

Hi Heather - 78 does not sound like a low number with how far along you are. ((hugs)) We all know how stressful this is.

15 dpo. the reason I am freaking out is because the lab i got had normal values written on it. the normal values said i should be 100-5000 for this gestation, and mine was only 78. i know the other sites say much less. but i just keep thinking that i should be at least 100 and I am not, but i am going to go with the charts that everyone else has posted to help me stay positive! Thank you guys.

Those numbers sound great. I had a 48 with my fourth pregnancy and then 84 . The doubling is most important. 78 at 4 weeks is a great number.

My clinic will post lab results on a secure website. When the lab first posted my numbers, there was a range given for each week. When the doctor officially posted my results he made a comment of something like, "ignore the normal ranges given, your number is fine."

Labs are notorious for choosinf srbitrary numbers for the normal values. Take my thyroid tests, the lab I go to now says normal is up to 4.5. If my TSH was 4.5 I would barely be able to function. Most doctors that work in the field recongize normal high end of TSH to be more like 3.2.

Try not to let it get to you!
