Have not been late in nearly two years but now I am. Could hCG levels just not be high enough to detect pregnancy yet?
My hCG level is at bit high on 12th week of pregnancy. What does tht mean. Do I need to worry abt it?
Need an ultrasound: If you beta HCG is elevated, it may be normal or a sign of problems. A dramatically elevated HCG can be a "molar" pregnancy, which is a very abnormal placenta, usually without a fetus. This would be seen with ultrasound, twins will cause an elevated hcg. Sometimes fetal or placental problems can cause an elevated hcg, and again a detailed ultrasound would evaluate this. ...Read more
