    Default Slow rising HCG - good and bad stories please

    Hi there,

    This is pregnancy number 7 (possibly 8) and I have 1 daughter.

    My HCG's are as follows
    10 DPO - 29
    14 DPO - 160
    17 DPO - 356

    DD's HCG double well within the time frame, as little as 27 hours in the beginning.

    My ovarian ectopic took a week to double - well outside the guidelines.

    So this one is a little odd. It's not with the 48 hours, but now there is so much info that says 48-72 is normal. It's about 66 hours I think.

    I'm getting bloods tomorrow so it will be exactly 48 hours apart so it will gives us a bit more of a cleaner picture.

    But in the meantime, give me your slow rising HCG stories. The good, the bad and the ugly.

    Please don't tell me to relax though lol, I've lost 6 babies, relaxing and pregnancy don't go hand in hand for me :-)

    Trust me, I WONT tell u to relax.. I hate it when ppl tell ME to relax this is my fifth pregnancy, and I have 1 daughter, I understand how everything is a worry when u've had previous losses.

    My last pregnancy (the successful one) was always on the lower range of "normal".. But it doubled well. This time round, my levels were a bit higher, but I didn't double exactly in 48 hrs.. It was around 60ish hrs. Which I've read was normal. I'm now 17 weeks

    All the best for this pregnancy!

    Here's a good resource for hcg levels, I lived by betabase in the early stages of my pregnancies... I like it coz it's real women reporting, u'know?

    http://betabase.info/showBasicChart.php?type=Single

    I just checked against your results, and ur levels are above the median levels reported as u can see, there is such a HUGE range when it comes to hcg levels!

    Yeah all my pregnancies are logged in betabase. I spent heaps of time on there last night and will have to cross fingers that they're doubling sufficiently. Thanks for sharing the link.

    Needed a 590 today to be right on the 66% in 48 hours. I got 658 which is 84%. So heading in the right direction. Will just cross my fingers and keep hoping.

    My HCG started at 22 at 4 weeks, very low, but was doubling every 42 hours I think. They kept doing blood tests for 3 weeks before they were happy enough. Its stressful and personally I think I would have preferred not to have known my levels. (3rd pregnancy but first time I've been told my levels)

    48 hours later we went from 658 to 674.
    Then 72 hours it went up to 788.
    Have all my money on an ectopic.
    Going for a scan tomorrow morning, but with such low levels And only being 5w4d I'm not hopeful that anything will be visible. I'm going to tell the technician that he's hunting for an ectopic and take as much time S he needs!
