My HCG levels are slowly rising but not doubling every 2 days. If I don't miscarry, will my baby have health issues due to chromosome problems?

My HCG levels are slowly rising but not doubling every 2 days. If I don't miscarry, will my baby have health issues due to chromosome problems?

No: Your HCG level should increase by at least 50% in 48 hours in a viable pregnancy. It doesn't always double in 48 hours. A rise greater than 50% but less than double doesn't mean that your baby has health issues or chromosome problems. Best wishes! Read more

What is going on with my baby? My hCG levels are rising but are not doubling I have spotted for almost a month and just recently stopped, I have had transvaginal scans done but there is no baby seen anywhere

What is going on with my baby? My hCG levels are rising but are not doubling I have spotted for almost a month and just recently stopped, I have had transvaginal scans done but there is no baby seen anywhere

Part: Part of this depends on how far along you are with the pregnancy, i.E, how many weeks. You are right, the levels often double at this stage of the pregnancy. A sac/fetus should definitely be seen by 5-6 weeks. I am glad that you are under the care of a gynecologist who can follow you to make a determination. Read more

Defer to your Doctor: This does not in any way represent a healthy pregnancy. But, you failed to share with us what the doctor caring for you has reported or predicted or recommended. Given the gravity of the nature I would defer to the expert on the ground. Read more

At 8 weeks by hCG level was 110000 then at 9 weeks it was only 130000. Is it normal for it to plateau at this point? It has been doubling nicely up until this week. I have my first scan on wednesday

Normal: I am not sure why you are following HCG levels at this point in the pregnancy. An us is a much better way to confirm a viable pregnancy at this geatation. Hcg levels do plateau. Read more

Not yet: On many occasions, pregnancies proceed to be just fine even without the typical doubling. Hopefully, your OB will request an ultrasound, get a baseline reading, and then do a follow up scan as appropriate. Best Wishes Read more

My hcg level has been doubling ever 38 hours. Is this a sign I could be having twins?

May be: HCG levels vary widely in normal pregnancies and are not a very reliable sign of twin pregnancy. An ultrasound examination would be better for determining twins. You may consult this site for HCG level info.

Hcg level not doubling saw a heartbeat rate 115 at 6 weeks. High chance of miscarriage?

Hcg level not doubling saw a heartbeat rate 115 at 6 weeks. High chance of miscarriage?

Advanced maternal ag: Unfortunately it is a watch and wait scenario. After the age of 35 the risk of miscarriage is much higher. The pregnancy hormone does not exactly have to double but it does need to rise and we hope for the heart rate to stay 120-180. Read more

From which HCG level, I can see a sac? HCG is now 3722 and no SAC seen on vaginal US. Does this mean ectopic pregnancy? My HCG is doubling normally

From which HCG level, I can see a sac? HCG is now 3722 and no SAC seen on vaginal US. Does this mean ectopic pregnancy? My HCG is doubling normally

BHCG: Typically a pregnancy can be seen around a BHCG of 2000. Some variation is expected depending on the skill of the sonographer and the quality of the machine. At 3722 and a doubling BHCG a pregnancy should be seen regardless of whether or not it is normal pregnancy or an ectopic. Follow up is warranted with your doctor. Read more

My hCG level are doubling every 28 hours. Level is 1708.5 now and a week ago was 48. Progesterone 19.6.this pregnancy look Normal? Twins?

Check US: When your beta hcg is over 2000, you can start to identify structures in the uterus to suggest that you have a intra-uterine pregnancy (vs ectopic).
An ultrasound later on in your pregnancy can help delineate if you have a singleton or twin pregnancy. Read more

My hCG level on feb 18th was 1055 and then on feb 20th (2days later) it went up to 2299... Is that good rising? And my progesterone is 17.Is thar good

WHAT DID YOUR OB: Say if someone ordered those tests that same doc should be telling u if everything is ok or not, u should not need to ask that? Here, so far those numbers look normal, the beat is supposed to double every 3 days and a Progesterone over 10 is normal. Read more

At 5w4d pregnant my hCG level was 8, 250. At 7w3d pregnant my hCG level was 36, 350. Saw heartbeat 7w3d at 158. Concern: levels rising quick enough?

At 5w4d pregnant my hCG level was 8, 250. At 7w3d pregnant my hCG level was 36, 350. Saw heartbeat 7w3d at 158. Concern: levels rising quick enough?

Yes: Once one see the heartbeat, the levels become less and less important. There is wide variation in the "normal" numbers of hcg. Thus, now that you've seen a heartbeat I wouldn't worry for one second that the pregnancy is progressing appropriately. Good luck. Read more
