Doubtful: The hCG should have clearly risen more than what you relate. The inadequate increase in the hCG is consistent with a failed pregnancy and your doctor is correct in advising you to be prepared for a miscarriage. If more than 8 weeks pass and you have not miscarried and ultrasound does not show a viable pregnancy you should consider terminating the pregnancy.
