hcg levels 760 4 days later 1596 7 days later 3750 saw fetal heart 2 days later 180bpm should I worry because hcg is not rising like it should? I am afraid of miscarriage. Any good news out there. Doctor wants another sono in 2 weeks I have had no bleeding my pregnancy symptoms are mild
Actually, your levels are rising just fine. It's a huge misconception that the levels continue to double every 48 hours or so throughout pregnancy. As they get higher, doubling time slows significantly, eventually leveling out all together. At this stage, don't even worry about your levels. U/S is a far more reliable method of determining viability. Having seen the heartbeat is a really big deal and your risk of miscarriage has now dropped significantly. Congrats...sounds like all is well!!
Oh, and I should mention...once my levels hit around 1000, doubling time was something like 85 hours or something like that. My perfectly healthy son was born last Jan.
