hi all.... i was just wondering if any of you have had any experience of slow rising HCG levels?

I have had bloods taken 2 days apart... tue - 427 and today 611. Getting more on saturday. okay they havent doubled but they are rising. just looking for some stories of similar experiences i guess!! smile

sorry forgot to add ive only recently found out im pg so can only be around 4 - 5 weeks. the reason for me having blood taken so early is because ive had an ectopic pg before so they want to make sure its not happening again.

I had this when PG with DS, and then everything turned out OK. Best wishes for the next tests, are you going to have a scan too?

I had this with 1st pregnancy. Don't remember the exact results, but levels were on the very low side of normal though not doubling in 48 hours. I was referred for a scan, which showed a heartbeat, but the sac was smaller than it should have been. I miscarried a few days after that at 7+1.

Fingers crossed for a better outcome for you, the not doubling thing isn't always a bad sign. I reckon there will be more stories of positive outcomes.

thanks ladies, i went for a scan on tuesday but it was too early to see anything at 4 weeks. they said i had a thick lining which is good, so they will probably do another scan next week.

sorry about your mc yankncock
