Hello!!
I had my HCG levels checked for the 1st time yesterday morning and they were a 45. As of yesterday I was 3 weeks and like 1 day. I am really early! The nurse said that it was kind of low but that didn't surprise her because of me being so early. Do you all think this is low? I am really stressing out about this. I won't test again until Monday. I am going to have to wait all weekend.

Beta values main chart

If you're about 10DPO then I'd say that's higher than the average on this chart. I wouldn't worry at all. It is very early for you still! The stress and worry isn't good for you or your bean. Try to relax and have fun this weekend! Easier said than done I know.

I can't help but stress b/c I lost my last pregnancy at 27 weeks and I just don't want to lose another one. I knew I should have waited until I missed my period before calling the doc. for this reason right here. AAHH!

Here's a link to a chart of betas.

Beta values main chart

These levels were put in by women who were pregnant! This is not a list of suggested averages! As you can see, the median reported number is 16, at 10 DPO. So you're levels seem right on target!

I'm so sorry about your loss.

I know you're worried but from what I understand about betas, it's less important what the numbers are, and more important how they double. I think your numbers sound good.
