My Hgc level is not doubling, not even close and today a doctor said it had no hope only two days after another said it could be OK. Has anyone else been here? I'm 6 weeks 4 days and my Hcg is only 917 😔

Op I don't know much about this but Google spits out some numbers of about 1000 for where you are in your pregnancy so it doesn't sound like you're falling short much. Hopefully someone more experienced will be along with more knowledge than me soon flowers

MsGrey, I'm so sorry this doesn't appear to be going well. I believe that HCG doubling every 48-72 hours is more important than the absolute level. When you say yours isn't even close to doubling, may I ask what your last few levels were and how many days apart they were tested?

Saturday - 5 weeks 6 days - 375
Monday - 6 weeks 1 day - 575
Wednesday - 6 weeks 3 days - 713
Today - 6 weeks 5 days - 917

I'm sorry Msgrey not what you want to hear but my miscarriages had low rising levels. I spent hours like you looking for hope stories and stories of vanishing twins which caused low levels, low levels which suddenly took off etc. im afraid there's nothing you can do but wait and try not to drive yourself mad.

Ps I'm hoping hoping for you that you have a positive outcome flowers

Mine were low at first, didn't double. I had some bleeding and the hospital called me and said they were just within normal range. Didn't really help as was still worried sick. Im 25 weeks now. Really hope everything goes ok for you. Xx
