I`ve been on here before .I had a tv scan on fri which showed a 4.6mm sac but no yolk yet .

My hcg was 4500 which i was pleased with .
However my initial concern was that i didnt feel pregnant and thought i was 6 weeks gone . (had really bad sickness with others ).
Was happy with the theory that my pregnancy was earlier on than i thought.
My hcg 36 hours later was only 6000. Apparently it should go up by 66 % and mine has only gone up by 35 %.
They keep mentioning an ectopic and to go straight in if i get any pain and another lady said its likely a failing pregnancy but that my body hasn`t realised it yet.
My boobs are not so tender this morning and tbh i dont feel pregnant.
Would love to hear from anyone who had slow rising hcg and an ongoing pregnancy . The waiting about is horrible .

aww sorry to hear that. I have had hcg test but to be honest I cant remember the readings. Hope it all goes ok with you. I expect that there is no on on here at the moment with experience of this hence the lack of replies.

Good luck

I had the same thing, and all turned out well. virtually identical hcg levels as well, and given the same advice, on my notes they put ?ectopic. there are a minority of healthy pregnancies (something like 15%) where the HCG levels don't double. best wishes, it's a horrible limbo like position to be in.
