Normal HCG levels 19 DPO?

Hello I am not new to the website but I am pretty new to posting. I have a question regarding my beta levels. I had them done 10/6/09 at 19 DPO and the level was 1437, is this good for the amount of days past ovulation? When I had my son 11 1/2 years ago I didn't even know what the levels were and that I should even pay attention to them. I am going to see my doctor on Tuesday and wanted my levels checked beforehand as I had a m/c in june and the level was 147 at about 6 weeks into the pregnancy. I know the recent level is high but is it high enough? I am checking BM and various websites and all of the ranges are very different. I am just obsessing and wanted to know if anyone can guide me on this.

Hi there and Congrats!!
Your nubmer seems great for 19 DPO but did you have a repeat? It is really the second number that gives you the best information about whether the pregnancy is viable or not.

Good luck.

Thank you and also to you :}. I requested a repeat beta level and my doctors nurse is so sweet she is going to fax over the order this afternoon, luckily I work in a medical office building and will be going straight to the lab when I recieve the order. I know they think I am crazy but I just need the assurance. It's my fault for not scheduling my ob appt. until the end of the month so I can see the heartbet. But looking at your info maybe I should move my appt. up. I have been doing so much reaserch online and am seeing high numbers for down syndrome and molar pregnancies. (I had a molar before my son was born ) My Dh said no worries Chauntel we are going to be fine this time around. (he thinks so because he had a dream about me being pregnant) I will keep you posted. Thank you again for your reply :}

Ok so I just got my results from doc's office and my level is now 15,087. So I can stop stressing about that. Now to stress about upcoming ultrasound on the 30th.

Thank You, and congratulations to you VTGirl! I understand about the wait for the ultrasound. I have 2 weeks to go so I am just enjoying the begining feelings of nausea and my sore bb's until then : H&H 9 months to you.

Angie,

I am just nauseous no vomiting yet thank goodness but I feel it coming soon. With my DS I was sick during week 5 the week I found out I was pregnant. Seems as soon as the doctor confirmed it I was sick (let my husband tell it) I threw up so much that I lost 4 pounds during those first 12 weeks and then the first day of month 4 I was ravenous. I had my first dry heaving this morning while I was brushing my teeth. I have had just a general yuky feeling in my stomach for 2 weeks now and my DH has been nauseous for the past 3 weeks I feel sorry for him. As long as I eat every 2 hours I haven't thrown up but I am living on ice water, canada dry ginger ale, cherrios and oatmeal in the morning. I can eat lunch and then on my way home I feel sick again. But I welcome it as I was pregnant in June & had a m/c at 6 weeks and never felt pregnant. So I can and will deal with this m/s with open arms, lol. I will deffinitely keep up with you and let you know how my ultrasound & appt. goes next Friday. H&H 9 months Angie :} Are you on any other boards?

Chauntel - I usually post in the TWW section but I wanted to say congrats!!! I wish a happy and healthy 9 months to you!
As far as morning sickness goes, with my daughter I was so sick I was actuallu losing weight. I use to keep some plain crackers on the night table beside the bed and before I would get out of bed I would munch on 5 or 6 of them then just relax for about 10 minutes. It would make me feel good long enough to get up and eat something good for me.

Tara - Thank you for the well wishes. I have crackers but they don't seem to help. I have a bloated feeling in my stomach when I first get up. I drink an instant breakfast so I can get in the shower right quick. Then my DH makes oatmeal for DS and myself while I am gettimg dressed and I eat that on my way to work or as soon as I get to work. I can eat lunch fine then on my way home same problem all over again. I eat small snacks throughout the day to prevent the nausea, some days are better then others. I eat a yogurt around 2 am when I wake up to use the bathroom and that seems to help but I still have the dry heaving no matter what. I don't want anything to eat but know I have to be strong and get something down. I have a long way to go until this is over and hoping it will be over at 12 weeks.

Angie,
I sure hope u r right girlfriend! That would be great for only 3 more weeks, at least the weekend is near so I can get into couch potato mode, lol. My DH is quite the chef so I can't wait to eat his cooking again, with DS I ate well and he was almost 9 pounds!
