A 38-year-old female asked:
does slow rising hcg, if pregnancy turns out to be viable, indicate a chromosomal abnormality that could result in child with birth defects?

Possibly: Healthy and viable pregnancies usually double the value of the HCG hormone every 48 hours. There are many tests that are used now to predict and/or define fetuses with chromosomal abnormalities. Because of your age these tests should be offered and considered.
