Hoping for Answers on HCG

I just turned 35 and found out I am pregnant again. It has been 10 years since I have done this and we have lost 8 since 2001 and 2 failed IVF's. I implanted three days after my period ended and my HCG levels were normal for someone 1-2 weeks pregnant. I took another blood test 5 days later and my numbers quadrupled. I am not spotting or bleeding but am worried about what these levels may mean. I am experiencing tender breasts, slight nauseau and fatigue. Someone mentioned molar preganacy. I am not sure what this is or if my level rising is normal. Anyone ever experienced this before???? If so, can you shed some light????

Re: Hoping for Answers on HCG

HCG levels are supposed to double roughly every 48-72 hrs in early pregnancy, so it sounds like your numbers are doing what they are supposed to.

Re: Hoping for Answers on HCG

My OB told me that HCG levels should double every 2 days in the beginning weeks of pregnancy, so quadrupling after 5 days sounds just right. But it's not only about the number, so stay alert to your body and your Doctor and stay positive.
