what can a higher HCG level mean?

about a week and a half ago i went to the DR and got some blood tests. my HCG level was 10497^ the DR said that means i am 8-12 weeks pregnant. i went to a free ultrasound clinic, and the ultrasound tech. was trained for the first trimester of ultrasounds. she said i am only 4-5 weeks pregnant. what should i think? it makes more sence for me to be 8-12 weeks pregnant. my last period was june 28-30ish, HELP=]

It is my understanding that for the first few months of pregnancy, your hCG levels increase on a daily basis. But there is a point where it drops off. Only you know best when you had unprotected sex and when you might have gotten pregnant. You need to listen to your instincts. However, you can't be more than Conception: Saturday, July 12, 2008 7 weeks pregnant Due date: April 4, 2009 The main word in your question was "free ultrasound clinic." I think you need to pay more attention to what your doctor says than what the clinic said. At least for a while. Once you progress a little further, you can get another ultrasound--say around 20 weeks (according to your doctors dates)--and they'll get a much better idea then.

You might be around 8 weeks or so but definitely not 12. I am only 11 weeks and my last period was June 1st. A higher HCG can mean a multiple gestation, but the tech should have seen that when she did the ultrasound. You are probably between the two around 7 weeks maybe a little more, because you're almost a month behind me.
