Default hcg low levels

Do I haven't been here in a LONG TIME. My doc just called and said my hcg was 300. We were not really "trying" which is the frustrating part but just curious on low level hcg what it means? Any ideas?

It depends on how far along you are as to whether or not that's a low level. My first hcg number with Sophie was 32 and she's fine. I was just super early.

That seems like a pretty normal first number to me. My numbers were usually taken early and VERY low. I think some people just get off to a slow start. Are they doing a repeat? The number isn't as important as it going up.

I think you are 4 weeks. I got my first betas at 4 weeks and they were always in the 150-200 range so I think your in week 4 right now. The number isn't bad though, especially if it's early. Are they doing a repeat beta? Seeing the number go up is more important that the current level.

The important thing it to have it double every 2-3 days. The number looks good for where you are. I always had low numbers and it can be very scary. Ask for a repeat to see if its going up.

I'm just totally freaked out. Here is the whole story:

In July my insurance lapsed and I was off my birth control. It wasn't a big deal to me because me and dh were almost split up and just Yea a lot of issues. But I had af end of July. So then august, back on pill, but no af. And then September, we started to fix stuff, and things have been better. I had af September 22 but it was very light, mostly just brown discharge. And then last week weds I had my yearly and she was just like I'm going to check your hcg... Said she'd let me know Monday, but called me thus and said I was at 312 and according to af I am only like 2weeks and I feel pregnant. But I'm scared to be excited b because what if it's wrong? And pee tests are very negative still and I'm a little Crampy and my face broke out bad and we just started fixing this marriage in scared to go through with a miscarriage and I'm high risk for eptopic and if your on my fb obviously please Shhh and omg how can this be real?!

I would say your Sept 22 AF wasn't AF and it was probably implantation spotting. As for your numbers, I would call them and ask to do another blood draw so that you see your number is rising. Once you see that, I think you will feel better about it.
