HCG Levels and early scan


Q: I have just found out I'm pregnant. My LMP was November 12 which would make me about 4-5 weeks. My doctor did a hCG test yesterday and it came back at 147 and did it again today and it was in the 300's. He said I was about 2-3 weeks pregnant and wants me to have another blood test on Monday and go for a 4-6 week scan when I get to that gestation. I am concerned as it seems like a lot of hCG tests and a very early scan. Why would I need to do this and should I be concerned?
