Very high hcg count !!?

I had an er visit for some stomach cramping. 

They did an ultrasound, and baby was measuring 6 weeks 3 days. Heartbeat 122

However, my hcg count was 183,299 which falls in the range of 10ish weeks. 

6/7 weeks fits with my last menstrual cycle.

What could cause such high levels? Has anyone else experienced anything similar? I have not been to an actual ob yet because I’m still getting my insurance situated.

    In the middle of this crisis you went to the ER for something that stupid?

    It's high for 6 weeks, but within the normal range for 7-8 weeks. Since you saw a heartbeat I don't think you have anything to worry about for now. That's the biggest hurdle to overcome in early pregnancy.

    Your next follow-up should be with an OB, though. It's dangerous to go to the ER right now for non-emergencies, and unless you were in severe pain and/or had lots of bleeding then you weren't in an emergency situation. If you don't have an OB by the time of your first prenatal appointment (8-12 weeks depending on the clinic's preferences and availability) then keep in mind that women's clinics like Planned Parenthood do offer basic prenatal healthcare, and often at low or no cost.
