Worry less. : Hcg doubles about every 48 hours in early pregnancy since we don't know the prior number or the date of your ocnception it is somewhat difficult to say what an absolute number 182 means. 12 DPO should have been at about the time of your missed period so 182 seems about right. Will need to see how this progresses.
