Good Ultrasound Slow Rising HcG

APPRECIATE ANYONE’S HELP!: After 2 miscarriages got pregnant again. Went in for my 6 week ultrasound feeling great based on everything up to that point but in it could only see the sac – nothing else. When the doc saw that my HcG had only gone up from 8,900 to 11,000 over 3 days he became concerned and asked me to come back in 10 days – he said if we didn’t get to HcG of 50,000+ by then we’d know the baby wasn’t healthy and miscarriage would be likely. Came back to an ultrasound with a great heartbeat (140+ bpm) and a baby that measured 6 wks 3 dys (although should have been about a week more). We then got the news that my HcG was only 25,000. Does the good ultrasound and heartbeat matter at all or is the slow HcG growth mean the baby won’t make it? Can someone pls educate us?

I wish I could educate you but I dont think anyone else can do that but your doctor but I will give you my opinion on what I know. Even though a heartbeat was detected there are some concerns, mine would be the slow rising HCG that is the biggest indication that things are going wrong. Im sorry to say this and my heart prays for the best for you, HCG should double every 2-3 days and for it to barely double in 10 days means yes there is something wrong. With the baby measuring a week behind its validating that the low HCG indicates a problem. Take care and as I said I hope for the best for you.

at 6 weeks normal levels are so random (from 1080 to 56500) so you levels are in the normal range. How is your progesterone? They are not rising at the rate that is average but I know there are women on here who've had the same and are well into their pregnancy now. Chin up and ask doc about that progesterone to see if thats in a good range.
