If my hCG level was 56 on Wednesday and 180 on Friday did they double properly?

If my hCG level was 56 on Wednesday and 180 on Friday did they double properly?

Why measure so often: I think I'm most curious about why you might have a repeat test 48 hours later. Are you bleeding? Is there a problem with your pregnancy? Especially not having any idea how many days/weeks pregnant you may be, it's impossible to interpret these numbers in this setting with such limited information. In fact, there is no unit of measure provided. Therefore I can't give you a helpful answer. Call OB. ...Read more

In 5 days my HCG level has gone from 854 to 7,925. Is this normal? It more than doubled every 48hrs.

Probably: HCG doubles usually every 48hours in the first 4weeks of pregnancy but doubling time increases as pregnancy advances. You are doubling every 1.6days or 38hours. Not sure of how far along you are but puts you in the range of 5 to 6weeks which still has your HCG at the normal level. For optimum pregnancy start antenatal care early. So see your OB as soon as possible. All the best ...Read more
