  • Well mine stopped doubling but I was 6 weeks and by then it went from 9000 to 15000 in 2 days, sometimes it's normal if it doubles over days, try not to stress and just wait! I know easier said than done.

  • Why did they do the test? What did they say?

    I would ask to have another test.

  • they did the test to see how far along i am. They did not say why the numbers did not double. He said he was concerned and they was going to watch me extra close. I have another test monday. But in the mean time i am really scared. Dont know why they did not double. but the test was done less the 48 hours from each other.

  • Remember, lab results aren't perfect. You don't always get the same result for the same sample. If you haven't had any fertility problems or miscarriages there is no reason to think anything is wrong. I agree with think fertile thoughts!

  • I had my levels checked at 5+ weeks. My levels didn't double either, they just went up. 700 then 1200. Since they were low for how far I was, plus they didn't double, my OB sent me for an ultrasound, but everything measured fine. I'm almost 13 weeks pregnant now and baby is still doing great, so try not to stress too much over those numbers. Do you know what your second hcg level was?

  • I had HCG issues in the beginning of this pregnancy and my doc said that the numbers are more likely to double every 72 hours, not 48. My numbers never doubled, but baby is still fine months later. The ranges vary so much in hcg, you're usually fine as long as the numbers are going up.
