when i thought i was 5/6 weeks pregnant my bloods came back at 4 weeks pregnant (hCG 2231). two weeks later i went to the Dr and scan revealed a gestational sack 4 weeks prob a little earlier. was explained there is a small chance of blighted ovum, but Dr feels i probably ov'ed later in my cycle due to Clomid messing with OPK results. but that would mean i had an increadibly high hCG level at what would have been 2 possibly even one week preg. if i work out the hCG increase at the slowest level of double every 96 hours i get the result that i will be 5-6 weeks next week at Dr's appointment (wednesday 16th) this makes sense.. what i want to know is:
1) when do hCG levels normally slow down
2) is there a posibility this might be a twin pregnancy?
my symptoms are about as bad as they were with my son at between 10-14 weeks. and i should only be 4-5 now
3) would a blighted ovum show higher than normal hCG?
Thanks for you help xx
