what should the hcg levels be when you first get pregnant

It used to be when you

It used to be when you finally got a positive pregnancy test, you could breathe happily. Now, you have to wait for a few days to make sure the hcg is rising. Then you hold your breath until you can see a heartbeat. I don't think I relaxed until I had baby in my arms, and then I had a whole new set of fears.

14 days after your LH surge, the average number for hCG is 48. with normal lows being at 17 to normal highs being at 117. In general, it isn't the specific number that's the concern, it's whether the number is doubling roughly every 2.2 days or so. Good luck!
