Mine were checked in the ER on Saturday and I was 6w6d, the level was 46384, on Tues (almost 72 hours later) they were 66899. So I guess they don't have to double at this point... 

What were yours if you had them done? With #5 mine were 14k then two days later 23k, I was 6 weeks along then. 

I've also read they increase slower with boys which is why it's more common to be sicker with girls. That's been the case for me lol I also spotted lightly with my other 3 boys but with this one it's been worse.

I have never gotten mine checked, even with my other pregnancies..

I think it can cause major stress and can drive a person insane so I'm happy with not knowing :)

At 5w6d mine were 28,608. I had them checked early and they more than doubled, they tripled. I guess I'll have to wait and see if it's a girl. I was more sick with my son than any of my girls. This pregnancy has been kind to me so far...

Only got mine tested with my second when severe pain had us worried it was ectopic. The pain ended up being a giant ovarian cyst. Never with any of my others. Not worth the needle poke to me.

How big was your cyst? I have one on my left ovary & for months I thought it was my bladder hurting... It's 3.5 cm so not terribly big...

It's not regularly done, only if they want to make sure things are still going in the right direction. I got it done because I've been spotting kind of heavy & cramping.

I had mine checked at around 9dpo-15, 11 dpo-45, 17dpo-521, 6 weeks along it was almost 22,000. I'm waiting for an ultrasound with my high risk dr now.
