Normal HCG levels at 5 wks pregnant
Hello.  I just found out I'm pregnant after 2 miscarriages in 2008. I had labs done yesterday and got my results this morning. I'm trying to understand the meaning of my HCG level. Doc confirmed I'm 5 wks as of yesterday but my HCG level is 5151.6.  Is this normal?? I thought it was high, but I know nothing about what's normal at this stage.  Please help!  Thanks!

Those numbers are completely normal.  When I was 5 weeks and 3 days my number was 7000.  Its not so much the number itself that counts though as long as it is doubling like it should.  i have included the chart for normal ranges of HCG, courtesy of the american pregnancy association website.  Good luck!

Guideline to hCG levels during pregnancy:
hCG levels in weeks from LMP (gestational age)* :

3 weeks LMP: 5 - 50 mIU/ml
4 weeks LMP: 5 - 426 mIU/ml
5 weeks LMP: 18 - 7,340 mIU/ml
6 weeks LMP: 1,080 - 56,500 mIU/ml
7 - 8 weeks LMP: 7, 650 - 229,000 mIU/ml
9 - 12 weeks LMP: 25,700 - 288,000 mIU/ml
13 - 16 weeks LMP: 13,300 - 254,000 mIU/ml
17 - 24 weeks LMP: 4,060 - 165,400 mIU/ml
25 - 40 weeks LMP: 3,640 - 117,000 mIU/ml
Non-pregnant females: <5.0 mIU/ml
Postmenopausal females: <9.5 mIU/ml
* These numbers are just a GUIDELINE-- every woman’s level of hCG can rise differently. It is not necessarily the level that matters but rather the change in the level.
