First day of last period was around 17th of Feb. I was working way at the time and didn't have sex until 17th of March when I returned home. (After that, DH and I have been at it almost every day but that's too much information!)
No period since to took a blood test on Tuesday : POSITIVE!
Thing is, my hcg levels is 2000. That would be 2000 at three weeks and two days! What is going on?
Unfortunately I don't remember exactly how my periods were at this time because it was a nuts time with work and I was all go. But I'm pretty sure it was a normal period because I don't remember noticing they were shorter or lighter than usual.
Pg is usually dated from the first day of your last period, conception having occurred on day 14 (presumed), but if you're irregular then 2 weeks prior to conception will give you a more accurate date. But yes, always add 2 weeks from conception.
HP is right, you add 2wks onto the pregnancy although not in every country some just count since conception, others from last period. Mine at 5wks was 2200 (3 weeks from conception) and 36600 at 6 weeks (4wks from conception) mines just the one baby and it was considered a normal level. So yours sounds normal. Congratulations xx
In France the weeks aren't added, which explains your confusion. It's also why we always hear that the French consider a pregnancy to last 42 weeks when we expect 40, because of the not adding the weeks. If that makes sense. Congratulations too!
Op in my first pg I had a blood test at 5.5 weeks (English system - so 3.5 weeks after conception) and the hcg came back at nearly 10000!! It was only one, heathly, baby (now toddler). There can be massive variation in what 's 'normal' so don't panic. And congratulations
