On day 22 DPO my hcg level was 8000, on day 25 it was 14000. Since this did not double is this cause for concern? I'm 5 weeks and 4 days.

HCG levels are helpful to

HCG levels are helpful to know how a pregnancy is progressing before an ultrasound can get an accurate picture, but the downside is that it gives new moms something else to worry about.
Levels double on the average, every 30.9 hours until values reach 6500 mIU/ml (6,500 IU/L) at approximately the eighth week after the last menstrual period (LMP). After that the rate of rise becomes individualized, peaking between the 60th and 70th day (9 to 10 weeks) LMP.
At 39 days after your last menstrual period, normal can range from 7,000 to 229,000. As long as your numbers are continuing to climb, be patient. Falling HCG numbers are a reason to worry, slow rising numbers can mean an ectopic, but slow rising numbers happen in perfectly normal pregnancies.
