today's hcg results

well, I can't say as I wasn't scared when they told me my results...but with more looking into it in my pregnancy book and online I think I am just fine Smile

On the 18th I was at 6990 (which was the close to 7000 I reported to you guys)....on the 21st, which was friday, my number was 12 480.

I thought all this time it was supposed to double every 2 or so days. But on the site I'm looking at it says the following:
"In most normal pregnancies at hCG levels below 1,200 mIU/ml the hCG usually doubles every 48-72 hours and it normally increaseses by at least 60% every two days. As your pregnancy develops the increase slows down significantly. Between 1,200 and 6,000 mIU/ml serum, the hCG usually takes 72-96 hours to double, and above 6,000 mIU/ml, the hCG often takes over four or more days to double. It makes little sense to follow the hCG values above 6,000 mIU/ml as at this point the increase is normally slower and not related to how well the pregnancy is doing."

So I think we're good! He's still letting me go for one more test on friday if i want to...and i will...even though it's not much to go off of, I just want to make sure it's still rising.
Thanks girls Biggrin

Oh Karen hwo wonderful, I have been gone for a bit so last I heard from you you thought the pregnancy was lost. What a wonderful surprise to hear that things are going well. I'll keep your little bean in my prayers, may the rest of this pregnancy be uneventful. I'm so excited for you!
