So, I had my hcg yesterday at 19dpo, and it was 5,081!

My levels went from 46 (10 dpo on 10/5) to 2600 (17 dpo on 10/12). I had them redone today, but I haven't heard the results yet. I should know them tomorrow along with my ultrasound.

I have heard that while high numbers sometimes can indicate multiples, they really aren't an accurate measure because there is such a wide range for what is considered normal. It'll be interesting to see how much yours go up these next few days and then what the ultrasound shows. Have they scheduled an ultrasound for you?

Did you figure out what your doubling time is?

I just used a doubling time calculator and if you got your labs drawn at exactly the same time of day it would be 28.86, which is below the median doubling time, so it doesn't seem that your hcg levels are high or anything.

Yeah I calculated them at 28. They weren't done the same time of day, the first one was later in the day and the second one was first thing in the morning. The thing is, once your beta reaches 1200 it's suppose to slow down. That's why I'm really interested in the number from today. Yeah my ultrasound is tomorrow. I have an higher risk of tubal pregnancy because of having a tubal reversal 4 months ago, so they have to monitor the beginning of my pregnancy a bit more to be safe.
