Hcg update

got blood work yesterday to see if my levels were going up... Im now confused and at a stand still. She said they didnt double but they also didnt go down but a tad up Im not sure if i wrote the numbers right or not Tuesday it was 8550.3 (not sure if its 85,503)
thursday it was 8818.2 (not sure if its 88,182)

I have to go back on monday and recheck it and they might give me another ultrasound to see if anything has changed. The lady didnt sound 100% negative she did say some people take longer to double others just have low HCG

i have read bad and good things about the hcg not doubling. there was a girl that went in at 7w1d and also had an empty sac and her hcg wasnt doubling. she went for a 2nd scan at 8w and they found a baby with a heartbeat and now she is 16weeks pregnant with a healthy baby.

I will be 8w2d on monday so im holding onto this little bit of hope. Im belly still feel and looks pregant and it actually grew and inch. Please pray for me girls,

If its 88,000 then that is a normal level, your HCG level slows down after 6 wks, so it will no longer double just slightly increase. I have everything crossed for you!!!!

yes! i was just going to say this. once your hcg levels hit a certain point they just don't double like they did in the beginning. when i was pg with my son, after the numbers got to about 4,000 they stopped doubling every 2 days.

hope they can get you in for another u/s soon!

LURKER

I also want to point out that once you hit 6 weeks, HCG starts slowing down. It should no longer double in 24-48 hours but more like every 96 hours. once you hit 7 weeks, it slows down again but i can't remember the rate. stay positive. so long as the numbers are going up, i'd say that's a good thing.

Everyone is right about it taking longer to double at this point, but I just wanted to share my HCG numbers with my son

August 1, 2009 (7DPO) HCG=44. I found out I was pregnant while I was hospitalized for unrelated reasons
August 3 HCG=40 (9DPO), Progesterone only 9.5!. Most likely a vanishing twin if there was no lab error
August 11 HCG=840 (17DPO)
August 13 HCG=2100 (19DPO)
August 15 HCG=2400 (21DPO)

So, as you can see, mine dropped early on and then stopped rising as it should early, as well. I was told on both occasions that it was a m/c. After that last number, I was told to take the drug to speed up the m/c (since I never had any bleeding) but requested an u/s, where I saw the baby with a beating heart :). He's 2 years old next week!
