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

My US showed empty uterus at 6 weeks after bleeding a week at 5 wks. HCG rose slowly inititally 40%. but HCG rose from 1000 to 1700 at 6 wks. Preg?

Yes: With an HCG that high you are almost definitely pregnant. The only concern would be that you could possibly have an ectopic or tubal pregnancy. Be sure to follow up with your OB. If you develop severe increase in the pain or severe bleeding, go to the ER. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Probably: This type of pattern can be consistent with a non-viable pregnancy, but you should see your OB clinician in order to make a diagnosis and to make sure you do not have an ectopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening. ...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

My hCG level day 28 was 37 three days later 50 three days after that 90. I'm worried these levels are too low for a viable pregnancy and not doubling?

Unclear: You are really early, i would recommend repeating again and as long as you have no symptoms of miscarriage continue to be optimistic for now. ...Read more

Progesterone level of 14.8 at 6 weeks 1 day pregnant. Is this number ok? Baby had a heartbeat and measured perfectly.

Progesterone level of 14.8 at 6 weeks 1 day pregnant. Is this number ok? Baby had a heartbeat and measured perfectly.

Probably ok: Congratulations, you are pregnant! try not to treat the numbers, there really isn't much you can do about it. While your physician may place you on Progesterone supplementation, there is no evidence that this decreases miscarriage risk. That being said, it can't hurt. If the fetal size is appropriate and the heart beat is normal, try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy. Best of luck! ...Read more

Hcg levels at 9weeks 3 days was 76,000, levels checked again at 9 weeks 5 days hcg was 80,000. When does hcg levels plateau? Normal or abnormal?

Hcg levels at 9weeks 3 days was 76,000, levels checked again at 9 weeks 5 days hcg was 80,000. When does hcg levels plateau? Normal or abnormal?

Why checking HCG?: It would be helpful if you provided the units on those lab values. Not sure if they're different in Canada vs. US. If you are truly 9 weeks pregnant why are they even checking your HCG levels? Are you bleeding? Is the baby measuring small? At 9 weeks gestation the most important findings are the baby's heart rate and if the baby is continuing to grow normally. ...Read more

I got u/s at 5 weeks 5 days. Hb was 99 hbm, 3.8mm crl, and gest sac was 5 weeks 6 days. Hcg levels are doubling. Any indications of a non viability?

I got u/s at 5 weeks 5 days.  Hb was 99 hbm, 3.8mm crl, and gest sac was 5 weeks 6 days. Hcg levels are doubling. Any indications of a non viability?

So far so good: I usually like to see a heartbeat at six weeks or later. The fact that you saw it so early is a good sign, even though it's slightly slow. Over 100 BPM is best after six weeks. I'm sure you have another ultrasound scheduled? Hold tight! it looks good for how early you are. ...Read more

Bled whole pregnancy. At 7w(lmp) measured 6 weeks with small gestational sac. At 8w (lmp) measured 6w6d with sac at 4.5 weeks. HR 154. Miscarriage?

Bled whole pregnancy. At 7w(lmp) measured 6 weeks with small gestational sac. At 8w (lmp) measured 6w6d with sac at 4.5 weeks. HR 154.   Miscarriage?

Not necessarily: Hi, Without seeing the ultrasounds it is a little confusing. At the first U/S, what was measuring 6wk?> the sac or the fetus, if they saw one. The second U/S would actually be reassuring; they measured a fetus at 6w6d (the difference from LMP would just mean your dates are off), but a fetal heart rate of 154 is reassuring. The continued bleeding is worrisome, but keep the faith! Good luck ...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

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

My history-1 ectopic 8years ago. 5w pregnant now. Hcg low and slowly rising (43 and 68 two days later. Low progesterone (4.1) bleeding. Viable?

What did you doc say: Does not look good with that low of Progesterone and u are bleeding, the beta did go up 66% in 2 days but I am sure your doc is having u do another beta and prog. I check my pts every 3 days as it is supposed to double every 3 days but with your history and that prog u are at high risk for another ectopic or misc, u need close followup by your doc as prog less than 5 is suspicious for ectopic. ...Read more
