Hcg levels not as high as they should be
Hello,

I've had 2 1/2 years of infertility and two miscarriages. They happened for different reasons and I have no condition that causes repeat loss. I've been tested for them all. I am pregnant again at 9 weeks now. It's been a really hard journey for me. I am so afraid of something go wrong. All my early hcg levels were great. On high end of ranges for days past ovulation. I was inseminated with trigger so I know when I conceived.  I had my first ultrasound at 5 weeks transvaginally and we could see the heart beat. Size was just right too. Went back again at 7 weeks and could hear the heartbeat at 174 which is great. My hcg at 5 weeks was 8800 and at 6 weeks it was 39000. So at higher end of range for those levels.  I've had about two more ultrasounds and the baby still seems to be growing with a heartbeat. But I had my hcg drawn at 8.5 weeks and it was only 109000. I know that is a high number. I know levels don't double for 4 or more days after 6000. I know they start to plateau at 9 weeks. But still it doesn't seem as high as it should be. Now I'm in the middle of the range for my week period whereas I was always on the high end. 2 1/2 weeks it only only doubled once plus a little more. So much happens in early pregnancy. Within a week something could go wrong to make the growth slow or decline. Maybe during this past week the baby's stopped growing and the numbers are going down fast. I'm so scared. I just want this to work and to finally have a baby. Thank you.
