I have OCD so I know what it's like to have obsessive thoughts and fears. I also know that there's real relief to be found, but sometimes you have to keep trying until you hit the right therapist or therapy. Are you currently in treatment?
And I second the Betabase website, if only for the fact that it proves that an enormous range of results are deemed "normal"

I completely understand what you mean about the fear, im 34 weeks now and still can't relax, ive not unpacked the baby stuff for fear that something will happen and I'll have to take it all back :'(
Are you still looking for a therapist? It sucks how long it can take to find one that you click with, maybe you have a gp that you can go and see and they can help alleviate some fears, they might also know of a different therapist you could go to.
It's so hard isn't it, I really imagined myself having some kind of "earth mother" life is beautiful kind of Buddhist pregnancy where I should feel so loved and free, for the first time ever, but it hasn't gone that way, I think it's great that you're seeking support here, even if it's just to confirm if something needs to be worried about! I do that all the time, will ask some one "I'm stressing about this, pointless or not pointless?!"

Unless you have the test at the same time every day it won't be accurate as these levels grow exponentially not linear.

I completely understand having all the bloods done, I was exactly the same!
Your doubling time is absolutely fantastic though, and that's the most important thing
Sending you massive hugs. If there is one thing that can make already bad anxiety worse, it's pregnancy xx

I know beta hell is not a good place, I've been there and had 3 losses but at the end of the day, googling and comparing levels only makes you more stressed.
You've got a great doubling time, there is no reason to think anything is wrong with the hcg. I had bad cramping with my ongoing pregnancy, it's very normal.
If you are really stressing, can you do an early scan to check for he sac? I did a scan at 5w5d and saw the heart beat.
I know this anxiety isn't fun but there is nothing you can do but wait till you have a scan. Chances are everything is totally fine.

I was completely as anxious as you were, the next 12 weeks will be no better. I used to break down on the phone, I don't feel pregnant anymore!! I was in a mining camp in the middle of no where so scans and bloods were hard to organise. I just had to Keep thinking that there are no symptoms telling me i am MC so I need to believe this is all positive, actually I didn't really relax till about 20 weeks.
