Is it okay if my HCG levels MORE than double in 48 hours?

My HCG levels were

Tuesday 79

Thursday 155 at 42 hours later

Saturday 321

Monday 1 thousand right at 48 hours

Is it okay that it did more than double?

I was just so excited that they doubled that I forgot to ask the nurse.

  • Yes, it's fine if they more than double- it's pretty normal, especially when it's really early. The doubling rate slows down as the numbers increase. HTH!

  • Yes . . . I think you onlu worry if the number are not growing, or actually decreasing.
