HCG doubling times are just predictors. They do not necessarily tell the ultimate outcome. A failure to double just means that the next test should be done sooner and that further vigilance is necessary. In multiple embryo transfers, the HCG of one embryo might decline while another might rise. Wait to see the next set of levels before reaching conclusions.

: I had my first quanatative beta HCG on Monday that revealed I was pregnant. I scored a 33. But 48 hrs later, I scored a 34.7, this should have doubled. I have been resting a lot, and slowly my light cramping is disappearing. I have another test on Sunday. As long as the numbers are going up, am I ok? I know that there is a risk with this pregnancy but I also know there is hope. And miracles do happen everyday. I am staying positive....but what is your opinion? Thank you so much for your help. And friends, thank you for your support. I am worried but whatever happens we can make it through this. Love, Tiffany
