I believe it should double every 48 - 72 hours, in which case I think you're good! There is a calculator here on ctp too. Good luck!

The doubling rate for hCG slows considerably once u start hitting numbers that high. I believe normal rate is for a double in the 3-4 day range. At this point, an ultrasound would provide a better idea to viability than hCG does. I really wouldn't stress it.
Congrats! =))

Thank you girls.... I have read after exactly what you wrote Dakota.. I am now nervous because my levels seem to be to high.... they are definitely over the average... I was exactly 5 SA and 5 SA and 2 days when I did my blood tests. (It cant be more as we didn’t have any intercourse earlier...). I really just want to have a normal and healthy pregnancy.

I'm sure everything is fine. Numbers vary with each pregnancy/woman. I was over 9k at 5wks with my 3rd and barely hit 6,800 at 6w2d with my 2nd. Both were born healthy and screaming. Try to enjoy ur pregnancy. As of now, there's no reason to think anything is wrong. Don't waste time worrying, u can't get it back and it won't change anything.

May I ask, what does “SA” mean?
