    If you have a long menstrual cycle, counting from your LMP isn’t always the best idea. It could also be that you just ovulated later in your cycle than most do – the ultrasound will set things right though.

    At 5 weeks, HCG levels of anywhere from 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml are normal, so you’re most likely somewhere in your 5th week.

    You can’t really determine how far along you are by hCG levels, but 250 is low for six weeks so most likely you are not that far along. My levels at 4 1/2 weeks were 12,135 but that is higher than normal.

    Basing a pregnancy off your LMP is only accurate if you have a 28 day cycle and know that you ovulated AND conceived on day 14 of your cycle. Most women do not follow that rule so the ultrasound you get next week will be able to give a much more accurate determination of how far along you are.
