Are you saying the doctors told you the numbers are "low" or "slow?"  As far as rate of rise, they seem fine.  Whether or not they are low (or high for that matter) depends on when you think the pregnancy began.  (I.e., if you are thinking you got pregnant two months ago, those numbers would be low, if you think you got pregnant two days ago, those numbers would be high.)   So it all depends on what start date you are assuming for the pregnancy.

I think you're fine. Doctors misdiagnose things all the time. I wouldn't worry about it!

As long as the numbers are doubling you are fine.It is just that you are very early in your pregnancy.
