  • It's an hCG test. There's qualitive(*if* it's in your system. Pregnancy tests are qualitive), and quantitive(how much of it is in your system). They check quants to make sure the numbers are rising at the appropriate rate. The numbers should roughly double every 72 hours.

  • It's a measure of you hCG levels. The levels roughly double every day or so, so they likely just want to make sure the numbers are growing at the normal rate. A qualitative (qual) test is a simple yes or no, but a quant is a measure of quantity.
