My sister's hcg's did not double properly at first and was told to prepare to miscarriage and never did. She delivered a healthy baby.

I am one of them! My numbers did not double and I had low progesterone. I am now 23 weeks prego with a healthy baby girl! I think my numbers doubles every 4-5 days. I can't remember the exact #'s but it was a concern and I was told that it was probably not a viable pregnancy! Well here I am!

I am 23 weeks almost 24 weeks! I did the progesterone for 3 weeks and then stopped them myself cause they made me feel horrible! I felt whatever was going to happen was going to happen! I did the pills! Only god know sweetie! Just keep your head up and pray! I always prayed to God and just told him that he knew best and if it wasn't meant to be that I trusted in him and if it was than I would do my best to make this a healthy baby that he has blessed me with! Just keep your head up! It ain't over! Did you change doctor's yet? You are very early and I by no means would even consider giving up! Sticky baby dust and I pray you have a great 9 months!

I replied to you below (http://www.medhelp.org/perl6/Maternal/messages/44997.html).  My hcg levels got to a place where they didn't double (this was at a time when I was being told I was probably miscarrying), but then I was told that the number was high enough to still be considered normal, so they did another ultrasound and confirmed that I was definitely miscarrying when they did not see a yolk sac or fetal pole at 8 weeks.  My doctor suggested a D&C or Cytotec, but I told him I wanted to wait to let my body do what it needed to do on it's own.  My body never did anything and I went for another ultrasound at 9 weeks, 5 days and there was a baby.  I'm 23 weeks pregnant now.
