I am confused. I talked to the nurse today and she said that my beta doubled. Well on Friday it was 29 and today is was 114. I did that math and it quadroupled, it didn't double. Am I doing something wrong? I thought it was to double every 48-72 hours, well its been 72 hours.

Anyone able to help me understand this?

Mine tripled in 48 hours. The RE wasn't concerned at all he said as long as it's going up that's a good sign.

Mine doubled approx every 35 hours.... It's normal.. don't worry.. just means that you have a healthy little bean in there!

Well sometimes nurses say doubled when what they mean is "it more than doubled." all they are looking for is that it doubled.... if it's more than that, then that's all the more good. So I betcha she wasn't being technically precise, just telling you that it more than passed the test.

YOUR NUMBERS ARE GREAT!!! some woman don't double they only go up 66% which is still considered normal.. you can triple and then all of a sudden just double.. Try not to stress it.. Your numbers are perfect!
