Not much info here. Why are you at the ER only a week after seeing the doc? If it is for major pain an ectopic pregnancy should be considered. Did the ER communicate with the doc to resolve the difference? How many weeks along did the doc say she was? When did her last normal period start?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.If your hCG level is not doubling in early pregnancy, it may or may not be suggestive of a miscarriage. Furthermore, besides a nonviable pregnancy, slow-rising hCG blood levels may also be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy, which is another reason why a doctor may follow serial hCG levels.

Take care
