    Default HCG levels doubling rate??

    Hello!

    I'm about 5-6 weeks pregnant and have had my HCG levels monitored as I've had previous miscarriages.

    I had a test this morning and the results were 11,000 and something (I can't remember the exact number). My levels were 2600 last Friday. The midwife told me my levels were good today but I am a bit confused as I thought they should double every 2 days. And if that is the case my levels should be over 20,000?!

    Can anyone shed some Light on this for me please?

    My levels last week doubled. I was tested mon, wed and fri and each result was more than double the first.

    The higher your HCG gets, the slower the doubling time. Under 1200, doubling time should be 48 to 72 hours
    1200-6000 doubling time 72-96 hours
    6000+ 96 hours.

    That's just what I found on google
