Hi there.  Are you having another HCG reading today?  What is that number?  HCG will usually double every two days.  But it's not too far below that. The next couple of readings are important.  Please let me know what they are.  Stay strong.  hugs

HCG going up at a slower rate than normal can be a concern but doesn't always tell the whole story.  Have they done an ultrasound yet?  I would want to rule out an ectopic pregnancy.  I doubt that is happening but it is important to know.  That is one situation in which HCG rises slower than normal.  But although they do say doubling every 2 to 3 days, for some people, they have a normal pregnancy developing while only doubling HCG every 24 to 72 hours.  I would not worry yet!  At 6 weeks, you should be above 6000 and you are tracking toward that.  So, I would not stress yet!!  
today did a us saw a sac and yoke redid hcg after 24 hours 4830
Still going up!  What did your doctor say about your numbers and your ultrasound?/
said we will stop lab and repeat sono in 1 week
hm, I'd not be thrilled with that.  Why is she not continuing the lab work?  I"m so sorry she is not being supportive or frankly, helpful.
