Beta did rise but didn’t double

So I posted here last week:
1st set of blood:
Beta 1700
Progesterone 7.9

I had labs done 72 hours later
Beta: 2400
Progesterone: 16

The doctor was thrilled the progesterone went up and he was still ok with the beta levels but I’m concerned they didn’t double.

Any experience anyone?

In most normal pregnancies at an hCG level below 1,200 mIU/ml, the hCG usually doubles every 48-72 hours. At levels below 6,000 mIU/ml, the hCG levels normally increase by at least 60% every 2-3 days.

Yours went up by 700 in 3 days so I would be cautiously optimistic. My doctor always said that after a beta in the 2000s, a sonogram is much more indicative of if things are progressing well than a beta number. Hope you can go in for a sono soon! good luck Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon

Not good. I’m shattered.
Ironically my next betas were almost 14,000
But it’s an ectopic. I’m devastated

So sorry for the bad news. Thank goodness they caught it so early before there was any threat of your tube rupturing.
