Hcg Levels - What Is Normal ?

I have just found out I am pregnant : ), I had a positive home pregnancy test. And then booked in to see my doctor, had a blood test and it came back that I am pregnant and my hcg is 443. Is this normal, the nurse at the clinic said oh I think it might be a bit too low and I will get the doctor to call you tomorrow, I am worried .... The doctor said I would just have turned 5 weeks some time this week. My last period was 26.1.2005
please help

Im not really sure, I work at a drs surgery and women come in all the time with low hcg. Did ur dr tell u anything about it ? Probably best to wait for a few of the pregnant ladies on here theyre alot more experienced than me. Didnt want to leave u hanging though.

One more thing. My friend's levels were dropping so she had to get a blood test every other day I think. Eventually, they started to rise again and everything has been fine since then. I was also thinking the same as jamie. It's close enough that they could just be off on how far along you are and everything is actually right on track. Take care.

Idk why that happened. I never asked, I was just happy everything was okay and forgot to ask.
