  • For the first and second trimester your HCG will almost double each day. When you are at a high risk of miscarriage, the OB/GYN may check your level more often. They are looking for a plateau or plummet in level. as long as the level is increasing, the actual number doesn't mean much. Multiples don't always result in a higher level than a single

  • No its normal for it to go up like that, if the numbers are abnormally high they may check your other hormones and do an early ultrasound. It can mean multiple pregnancies but it is also normal.
