BETA did not double!

Postby tortillachip » Fri Aug 14, 2009 7:00 pm

I had my first BETA at 11dp3dt which was 207

Then my second BETA 2 days later was only 376

Should I be worried? Has this happened to anyone who turned out to have a healthy pregnancy? I'm freaking out. My third test is tomorrow.

When I cycled with my son my RE said that it does not always double but as long as it went up by 70% it was OK. My first 2 doubled fine and then the next only went from 504 to 852, and I was heartbroken thinking something was wrong and the next beta went from 852 to 1859. So it sounds good as to the way I had it explained.

Hope this helps!! & Congrats!!

Thank you! I'll let you know what happens tomorrow. The literature is very confusing...some say double, then other say between 48-72 hours.

Hey those numbers don't look bad - I have read over and over that it is typical to double every 2-3 days, but that a 60% increase in 2 days is normal. I think the third beta will tell you everything. Good luck!
