How many weeks pregnant?How accurate is HCG results?

Í'm normally 32-33 day cycle. My period was due on the 25July and 7days before my period (19July), I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative.
Then on the 27th July I tested again and it came back POSITIVE, Im PREGNANT!Smile
On the 28July, I went to my GP to get a blood test done to confirm my pregnancy. She said I was pregnant and my HCG was around 283 (not sure of the exact numbers,but around this figure I think.)
Should I get worried about my HCG results? So, how far really am I and when is my due date based the information I gave you. Will be seeing my OB on the 16August. Maybe I will know then. I just want to get my piece of mind. Thank you for your assistance and helping people like me in answering questions.

Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. You should not worry about the serum HCG levels as they are within the normal limits. Normally, there’s a lot of variation in the HCG levels. However, around 4 weeks from the last menstrual period the levels range from 5 – 426 mIU/ml. Hence, yours are absolutely normal and thus shouldn’t be a cause of worry at all. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
