Pregnancy or tumor: Hcg is the normal hormonal product of the placenta and so levels are high in pregnancy; a urine pregnancy test looks for hcg.

Fri Hcg level 18000. Mon 28000. Wed 38000. Just turned 6wks on Tue. My Dr is concerned its not high enough, what do you think ?
Concerned: In a normal early pregnancy the HCG level should have doubled between Friday and Monday.

I would want an ultrasound to be sure the baby is in your uterus and not in a tube and that everything looks ok. This could still be a normal pregnancy but I am concerned. Good luck. ...Read more

If the result is negative, repeat the test 4-5 days later. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Pregnant - lmp: oct 17/conception: nov 07. Bloodwork: dec 06 showed hCG level of 7, 801. This is on the lowest end of "normal." is this a cause for concern in any way?
