Hcg is produced by the placenta and is not effected by food or fluid intacke.

In brief: In urine
Hcg levels in urine depend on the concentration of urine and drinking too much water will make the urine dilute and the HCG levels will appear to be low.
Drinking too much water is not likely to affect the blood levels of hcg.
