Question: HCG rising normally

 amy050300 - Tue May 17, 2005 3:20 pm


I am getting vague answers from my nurse, so I'm hoping you can help. ! I am currently pregnant! With the help of fertility drugs.. FSH and the IUI. I had a pregnancy test done on May 7th with an HCG level of 240, then another HCG test on the 9th, level of 613. My latest test was done on the 17th with a reading of 9,250.

The fact that it didn't exactly double (should have been 9,808).. is this a problem? Or is it normal?

My HCG shot was on April 21st in case you need the info.

Thanks! Amy

User avatar Hi amy050300,
Don't put to much emphasis on "numbers". Every woman's level may rise a little differently. Here is a link to a general guideline. Good Luck to you :) ... evels.html
