    Default HCG levels not doubling

    Hi Girls,
    Not sure I'm posting in the right place but I'm about 6.5 weeks pregnant through IVF but my last two BT's show my levels aren't doubling. Can this be normal?

    At 6weeks 1 day the level was - 18400
    then at 6 weeks 3 days the level was - 23000

    so its still going up but not I'm worried its not going up enough.

    Anyone had these levels and still had success??

    Thanks.

    Mousse- I think the doubling rules only apply in the very early stages. Once you hit a certain level the levels rise slower and then plateau (and then start to drop). Can't remember what level, but it's like 8000 or something. And my levels never rose at the suggested rate anyway and I'm going fine

    Thanks Vesper. I didn't know the levels stopped doublinge later on I thought it was throughout the pregnancy.

    Thanks again and congrats on your pregnancy.

    Mousse, I was told that once your levels get to around 5000-6000 they will peter off to doubling every week or so and keep levelling off.

    Those levels look totally fine to me.
