High HCG Levels after blood test

Is there anyone out there that has or had high levels of HCG (the pregnancy hormone). My levels have come back very high to the concern of my OB. She's asked me to go for an u/s on Monday morning. I asked them why they are concerned and they just said let's wait for the u/s on Monday and we can see what's happening.  With that response, I went online to search on hcg and the info says that I could be farther along than I think OR I could be having a Molar Pregnancy (never heard of it till now) OR could be carrying multiples (twins or triplets).  Needless to say, I am very anxious and I don't know how I am going to make it to Monday. Has anyone experienced this before, what were your outcomes. Thank you!

The HCG levels vary so much.
What EXACTLY are your levels and how far along do you think you are?
Could definately be further than you think.
CONGRATS!

Thank you for your response. My first level was 11979; second was 19120 and third was abt 32000 (these were all done 48 hours apart). I am 4 and half weeks and they are saying that these levels are too high for 4 or 5 weeks. I don't think I would be further along than this, that is why this is causing me so much worry.

Your numbers are perfectly fine...no worries at all! Such a range, see below. As long as they are doubling every 48 hours that is all that matters! Many women here have high HCG levels, very normal:

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  
After several days postpartum   nonpregnant levels (<5)"  


"Results in Twin Gestation"
"Quanitative serum hCG tests detect multiple pregnancy approximately 9 weeks earlier than ultrasound. One small study (Jovanovic, 1977) found hCG levels in 15 singleton and 9 twin pregnancies were as follows:

DAYS FROM LMP  hCG in SINGLTON AVERAGE  GESTATION RANGE  hCG in AVERAGE  TWIN GESTATION RANGE  
28  64.7  9.4 to 120  64.7  9.5 to 120  
33  450  300 - 600  1,500  200 to 1,800  
36  1,500  1,200 - 1,800  19,200  2,400 to 36,000  
40  3,600  2,400 - 4,800  58,344  8,700 to 108,000  
45  36,000  12,000 - 60,000  126,000  72,000 to 180,000  
70  120,000  96,000 - 144,000  414,000  348,000 to 480,000"
