Is this pregnancy doomed?- low raising HCG levels

I am so scared. I have been trying to get pregnant for 10 years now.. I have had one miscarriage and now about 5 pregnant.

my hcg levels are raising slowly, and very slow on the last one. My doctor doesn't seem to be too worried, but I Am terrified. I have an u/s on Monday.

My Hcg levels:

Week 3: 6
5 days later:110
2 days later: 230
5 days later: 710
2 days later 980 ( this is the one I am really worried about!)

I don't have a lot of experience with this, but I've heard at least a few stories of very slow rising HcG levels and the pregnancies being totally fine. If your doctor isn't concerned, I would try to relax and see how things look on the u/s tomorrow, though I know how difficult that would be.

I agree with LilyTiger. Also, some doctors don't rely on the doubling rate of HCG levels. My first pregnancy they couldn't detect based off of hcg levels, and had to rely on ultrasound. I know this is easier said than done, but don't stress over what you can't control. I have been where you are, and honestly, stressing doesn't change anything. Just look for support whenever you're worried. <3

What is your doctor saying? I do know several women whose beta just was so slow and are having normal pregnancies. Did you by chance do IVF?
