Not really!: The 'doubling time' is not strict, it's a rough guide. Normal pregnancies may only go up by 2/3 in 2 days not 'twice.' furthermore each level is accurate to about +/- 15%, they are not 100%. Your numbers look normal, i wouldn't wear out your calculator doing this kind of thing. ...Read more

Hopefully good: There is a wide variation in the HCG levels in normal pregnancies and you should not pay too much attention to the levels, in isolation. I wish you good health and a healthy baby! ...Read more

Mar 17 hCG level was 17201. March 18 u/s showed hb & 6 weeks 5 days. March 20 hCG level only 23315. Is this low doubling rate a concern if prev m/c?

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

Are you HCG levels normal or could it possibly be multiples? At 8dpo =13, 10dpo =57, 16dpo =1195 & 18dpo=2628. Numbers are high and doubling fast.

Ultrasound: There is wide variation on HCG levels in normal pregnancies for the levels to be reliable indicators of multiple embryos. Examination by ultrasound would be more reliable. See this site for HCG levels. http://www.babymed.com/hcg-level-in-early-pregnancy ...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
