Hormones and pregnancy
Hi there,

I have just been told that I am 5 weeks pregnant. My gynae did a blood test to determine my HCG levels. The first one came back with a 41 reading and the second one that she did came back with a 60 reading. It bothers me that it did not double as it is suppose to. My gynae says there is nothing to worry about. What do you think? I just want to be sure.

You should have a scan in a week or so to check that the pregnancy is in the right place and that a heartbeat is present.

Best wishes
