Is it bad if your beta number doesnt double???

Postby Kamaile » Fri Jun 04, 2010 10:56 pm

I heard the beta numbers are suppose to double in 48 hours. Well what if it doesnt? Is that a bad thing? My first beta was 10dp5dt and was 223. Second beta was today which is 2 days later and it was only 426! Is that a bad sign that it didnt double???

Your numbers are terrific. Perfect. They dont say double anymore. They actually want to see a 66% increase or better 2 days later. Congratulations!

Kamaile - My beta with this pregnancy didn’t exactly double in 48 hours; in fact, it only increased by 50% in 48 hours but my progesterone was extremely high so my RE was very confident that this would turn out to be a good pregnancy. But, after 1 ½ weeks of beta’s every 72 hours, it finally started doubling in 48 hours but they would have been fine if it took 72 hours like Tammy stated. So don’t worry, you are doing just fine right now!

My beta only rose 70% in the firs 48 hours and then started doubling or more than doubling after that. And I'm 10 weeks pregnant with twins!
