I just got a call from the the nurse. My hcg is just over 2000. I am shocked!!! I thought for sure it would be too low to still be pregnant. She said it is right where it should be to match what they saw in the ultrasound.I will go in tomorrow for another blood test.

P&PT that the numbers keep going up!

Remember though that after 1200 mIU/ml, it takes longer than 48 hours to double...

This info is from American Pregnancy dot com:

As your pregnancy progresses, levels rise and that doubling time increases. The expected doubling time for HCG levels:
• Under 1200 mIU/ml: 48-72 hours.
• Between 1200 to 6000 mIU/ml: 72-96 hours.
• Over 6000 mIU/ml: more than 96 hours

I hope you get an encouraging and reassuring result!
