What did your OB say: Your OB should be answering all your preg related ?S just like I do with my pts, bhcg range can be variable, you need a rescan in 1 week to make sure the ht beat is normal and the fetus stays viable cause the ht rate should be faster than that in 1 week if the preg is normal ht rate shoudl be ideally well over 120 at 7 weeks.

Results are ok: Hcg values range during pregnancy varies quite a bit and your results are within the range for either 6 wks or 12-14 wks.
