Was told miscarriage no heartbeat, went in for a followup 1 week later and baby grew 1 week. Hcg still rising. Am I growing a dead baby?

In brief: Check hcg trend

Hcg is the hormone that is checked in pregnancy.
With a normal pregnancy hcg will double every 2-3 days. Hcg changing less than that means the pregnancy is abnormal. You need to see an obstetrician to sort this out.
