    Found the table online


    PREGNANCY STATUS SERUM hCG LEVELS

    from conception from LMP (mIU/ML or IU/L)
    7 days----------- 3 weeks----------0 to 5
    14 days---------- 28 days---------- 3 to 426
    21 days---------- 35 days---------- 18 to 7,340
    28 days---------- 42 days---------- 1080 to 56,500
    35 - 42 days---- 49 - 56 days---- 7,650 to 229,000
    43 - 64 days---- 57 - 78 days---- 25,700 to 288,000
    57 - 78 days---- 79 - 100 days--- 13,300 to 253,000
    17 - 24 weeks-- 2nd trimester--- 4060 to 65,400
    25 wks to term- 3rd trimester---- 3640 to 117,000

    Sorry if it hasn't come out very well. This just proves that our levels vary considerably from lady to lady and if yours is particularly low, then would explain BFN when af late then a week later BFP. I think this gives us all hope and a bit more understanding too. Hope this helps some ladies x x

    That's a great table, good find!
    Definitely reassuring for the BFNs when AF isn't showing

    Mine was only 87 at 5 weeks - I miscarried the same day they gave me the blood test results :shock:

    (i'd never been blood tested with previous pregnancies!)

    Hcg levels differ so you cant really go by a table or what you read on line. Mine & emma's was over 1 thousand at 4wks 3 days for both of us & were still classed as within normal range for a singleton so hcg levels can be higher or lower as long as there doubling then that's all that matters. ;) xx

    Thats what i thought, first thing i thought of was twins or eptopic,molar. But then emma's is the same on the higher scale & she had a dr tell her it's within normal range. When i checked on the beta values main chart, there is ladies who have had higher hcg levels with a singleton so when you see a poll like this it goes to show that you cant go by hcg levels cause everyone is different/every pg is different, so lower or higher you cant go by it really, only a scan will confirm if pregnancy is doing well. Check this beta chart out :) xxx

    Wow they vary more than the table suggests, the main thing the table showed me was just with bfp's hun, shows why some people get bfp earlier than others and some don't get bfp til a week after af due. I wasn't suggesting that it had anything to do with whether a pregnancy is successful or not, I just hope I haven't upset anyone :eh: x x

    Aww no you havent upset anyone hun, dont be silly. Just wanted to share that chart with you because of how high a hcg level can be in 4wks pregnancy & still be with in normal range, not on the high scale & still be having 1 baby not multiples. A lot of the charts say higher levels are a indication for multiples, when that hcg beta survey show's thats not the case. Such as your chart says 5wks pregnancy with the levels i had at 4wks 3days & you saying my numbers was on the higher scale, ;) xxx

    Thanks to vixxi and star for the tables

    It is reassuring to us ladies who are late and negative that it is possible to not be above the testing threshold until very late on (19days /three weeks) and that this can still lead to a sucessful pregnancy.

    Thankyou.
    X Daisy

    I don't think I can wait 3 weeks I'm now 5 days late, another bfn, I can't concentrate on anything, should I go to gp? I'd do my own blood test in work but someone else would have to rake the sample and I don't want anyone to know
