HCG Concern

Hello, im new here, congrats to all!! Having a baby is so exciting! I thought I was done with mine being 13, 14 and 15...whew here we go again! So I'm new to the whole HCG testing they are doing. I found out I was preggers by going to a walk in after missing my monthly, they sent me for a blood test and when they got it back the results were "greater than 3500" and the nurse was putting me at 4 to 5 weeks...making me 6 weeks now but what I dont understand is how my LMP was Jan 7th...how does that make me only 6 weeks? I'm so confused...with my LMP it makes my due date Oct 14...idk! Nothing is adding up!! Does anyone have any experience in this stuff? Please help me ease my mind!! Thanks yall!

    I could wrong but if you ovulated later the timing estimate could be right. They should know better once you’ve had an ultrasound

    Thank you very much for your response! I'm not really sure about when my ovulation occurs. I'm hoping they do an ultrasound when I go to the doctor on the 13th. When I was younger having kids they never did this hcg testing and if they did they didn't tell me. I only found out how far I was based on my LMP and a vaginal ultrasound. All of this is new to me again since it's been 14 years since I was last pregnant! We shall see though, the 13th isn't too far from now!

    I’ve had HCG tested but I don’t think they have used it to date the pregnancy so that seems strange. I think you can look at whether HCG is in the normal range depending on LMP or ovulation date, but usually dating would be based on LMP and ultrasound.
