    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    HCG numbers ranges is so wide that what matters is that your HCG numbers are doubling every 48 hours in early pregnancy. It seems to me that yours are which is good news.

    Have a happy and healthy pregnancy.

    I completely understand your nervousness. I had 2 early m/cs last year too. Is your doctor going to do another HCG test too? What is the next process for you?
