My HCG levels are not increasing as they should be on 09/30 they were at 3,443 and Tuesday they were 5,232. Is this ok? I am also spotting but my doc said it is due to a yeast infection which is causing irritation to the cervix. Please give me some advice

hCG numbers are a tricky

hCG numbers are a tricky business. There are a wide variances in what doctors consider normal, although we all know the golden ideal is that "CG numbers should double every 48 hours." That being said, they don't always double in that time frame, even in perfectly normal, healthy pregnancies.

However - for a healthy pregnancy, hCG numbers should be increasing and increasing steadily. I wouldn't be concerned by your numbers. They are rising. This is one of those times, when all you can do and wait and take good care of yourself.
