Slow Rising HCG Q - Looking for Hope

Hi Ladies - I just found out that my HCG only made a slight increase in 96 hours. 

I'm devastated and hoping to hang on to a shred of hope, but preparing myself nonetheless. Beta #1 at 12 DPO was 28.5 and progesterone was 17.5.

I had beta #2 this morning at 16 DPO and my HCG is only 49 and progesterone is 19.  

Has anyone else struggled with not doubling numbers or should I just resign myself to nature running its course?

Beta #3 will be on Wed, but the waiting is going to kill me. Thanks.

    I don't have experience with this either, but just wanted to send my T&P. Good luck!

    I'm sorry, those numbers don't sound great. :-( There are some women over on PgAL who had very slow-rising betas at the beginning and everything is looking good now, though, so don't count yourself out yet. If I were you, I would prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

    If you have any pain or bleeding, though, get medical attention asap. Slow-rising betas *can* indicate an ectopic. I hope things turn around and start looking up for you!
