what does your doctor say? i had my HCG levels rise very slow and i had a blighted ovum. basically an egg got fertilized, it attached to my uterus, but no baby formed. i had to have a D&C.
and i don't believe it would be twins, usually a HIGH HCG level would indicate twins.

Early in pregnancy HCG levels usually double every 2-3 days. A slow rising rate can go on to be a normal pregnancy or can be a sign of impending miscarriage or "blighted ovum." I would talk to your doctor about what the implications of your HCG levels are.

Thanks very much. We are still monitoring and have to wait till the levels become negative they figure once I have a period this should happen :)

sorry kristy!! i have heard of stories where people were told this and still had their baby. maybe wait a few more weeks to make sure since your levels are still going up? mine stopped going up completely. sorry i don't want to give you false hope, but i did think it pertinent to mention. :)

Hi guys so came back and did both Ultra sounds and No Baby :( I had already prepared myself for this and had already believed to have lost the pregnancy we just wanted to be sure with the levels still going up. They said once I have my first period it should bring it down as there is probably some cells still in the lining. Thank you everyone for your advice and I wish everyone well!!

I had some light bleeding so the first thought was a blighted ovum however the bleeding stopped was never super heavy and the levels are still rising very slowly though only doubling every week. I had one Ultrasound 2 weeks ago they couldnt see anything I have another one today and still going for blood tests once a week. I have already thought that it was the blighted ovum so no baby. With this now though I have that small hope that they are wrong and I am that small percentage that has a normal baby. Jane I would love twins!!!
