HCG levels not doubling at 5 weeks! What does this mean?


Hello. Iím new to posting and itís because I just got pregnant recently. Iíve been browsing the threads and hoping to maybe get some positive stories.

Iím currently at 6 weeks pregnant and took four blood tests in 8 days and Iím not sure if I should already be preparing for a miscarriage.

Hereís how my numbers for HCG played out:

Monday: 2579
Wednesday: 3646
Friday: 4440
Sunday: 4764

I went for a 5 week ultrasound on the Thursday and they could see the sac and the technician said she didnít see signs of a miscarriage but with numbers not doubling in almost a week, Iím wondering if I should just be preparing myself.

Iím worried sick and so scared.

My next ultrasound isnít for another two weeks...and Iím going CRAZY waiting.

Any personal stories or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Iím wondering if I should be worried because my doctor doesnít seem to want to give me an idea of what she thinks is going to happen.

I didn't want to read and run but try to keep calm Easier said then done I know! AT 5 weeks pregnant it is common to only see the sac and that is all. Where I am at they normally do not do the first ultrasound until 7 weeks or more because that is when you should be seeing the heartbeat etc. Your appointment in 2 weeks should give you a clear answer. I hope everything goes well for you! Have a happy and healthy 9 months!

I am not sure about the HCG levels but I know some ladies on here can probably answer that part better then I!

Thank You


Thank you so much for your note Hoping4numbr3.

The only reason they did the ultrasound test early was because they were worried about a miscarriage.

The HCG levels are driving me WILD! I'm so scared. Many forums I've gone through say that if the numbers don't double...or at least increase significantly it's likely that a miscarriage is going to happen.

I know worrying doesn't help but it definitely is having an impact on my day to day.

I was hoping someone can shed some light on HCG levels and give me some hope.

Yes I can totally understand. I am surprised your doctor wont give you an idea if the HCG is okay or not. They did the ultrasound because they were worried you were miscarrying due to HCG? Did the HCG draws get done before the ultrasound? HUGS!

She told me that there's reason to be concerned but still something we are waiting for.

Told me my numbers should be at 5,000 at least on Friday. I'm hoping she will contact me soon to give me more information!
