I hate to be negative, but it was a blighted ovum for me. My levels were low and slow rising, they got up to the 7 thousands at 7w2d but I had an ultrasound that same day showing an empty sac, and I miscarried at 8w0d. I hope for a better outcome for you.

ZoeCarroll:  I also don’t want to be negative, but slow to double numbers was also the indicator to me that something wasn’t right. Mine happened earlier, and wouldn’t double at first. Mine ended up being ectopic, which I’m guessing you’d already have symptoms of with those numbers (I had internal bleeding and pain at 6,000). To be positive, it is normal for numbers to take more than 96 hours once you hit 6,000 so it very well could be totally fine, and I don’t believe your numbers are low at all for gestation. Either way you will definitely know by Thursday, as something will show up on the ultrasound with numbers that high. Betas are a cruel test to go through as they can have you worrying for nothing! My fingers are crossed you see a happy bean thursday!
