I think a single number doesn't really say much about it being normal as the range for each gestational point is HUGE. You can find the ranges easily online. What is important is that they are increasing nicely. If you have no history or symptoms of MC then there is nothing to worry about.

Cant remember what previous BHCG levels were, but dont think i have ever achieved greater than 3000.
had small bleed 2 weeks ago.

not going back for repeat bloods. They are like slow torture.
got scan next week

just want something slightly encouraging.

I cant remember what my bhcg results were. Sh77 is right that it is not so much the numbers but that they increase. I have a friend whose results were always very low and she gave birth to a healthy girl at full term.
I have had 3 mcs and now have two ds. With both my ds's I bled at several points in the prgnancy. I know its scarey when you bleed but it doesnt always mean bad.
Sending you positive vibes

I had bleeds with both 2nd and 3rd mc (1st was a missed mc) so when I bleed with ds1 I was convinced it was all over again. So understand what you mean. But if your bhcg keeps ging up thats a really good sign. I know they are slow torture but its good to know if i increasing or not

yes but in all previous mcs, my bhcg levels have doubled in the 48 hours....still mc though so it doesnt mean that much to me.

Thanks so much hoops, it is the first time in 2 years that i have allowed myself a little inside smile smilewhere ttc is concerned. (im normally a very happy chappy normally!!)
I was very down, and this was like a little ray of sunshine AT LONG LAST!!!

Any hooo, will wait and see what scan shows next week.
Feeling VERY VERY pregnant now.

I mc'ed in May then caught again 2 months now 19+1, I have bled almost every week with this pregnancy and it has been positive thinking that has got me through and the lovely MNers!!!

Will be thinking of you all of this week

Sunburn hope all works out. I know what you mean about slow torture. I am having a missed MC. Baby measuring 5-6 weeks when I knew I was 9. Torture waiting for next scan (this coming mon) and so had hcg tested. It fell from 44,500 (at which point i thought there was hope) to 38,600 (all over). So my HCG was very high at 5-6 weeks and must have fallen tp 38,600 by 9.5 weeks. Don't fret over your HCG 'tho good that it the highest you ahve seen it. All the best. x
