I wouldn’t worry since you’re still well within the 48 hour doubling time. I’m no expert, but I doubt hcg rises at a perfectly steady rate. I would say as long as it’s doubling within 48 hours, you’re totally fine!

Another draw done today doubling has slowed again.
Today’s results are 3500 so doubling rate is 54.

I had thought it didn’t slow down this early.

Wishing I had some symptoms. Feeling hopeless

I don’t think you should feel hopeless. I know if I were in your shoes I’d be a nervous wreck, because we think the worst when it’s our own baby. But from an objective point of view, you’re still in “normal” range. Most experts say doubling rates are normal between 48 and 72 hours, you just always hear the 48 figure. I would only be concerned if they slowed down dramatically.

Good luck, the early days are the toughest

The numbers still doubled. I wouldn’t put too much thought into it. You’re going to get yourself worked up for something you can’t control. The numbers are higher than what I had with my twins. I had a draw at 5+2 in the 4000 range and 2 days later it was in the 7000 range.

Once the numbers get above 1000 it can take up to 72 hours to double. Your numbers are fine and there's no need to get anxious about it

I agree that your numbers look great! I'm glad you are starting progesterone. I am on my 4th progesterone baby!

Did you notice any side effects from the Progesterone? My fertility nurse said that im still above the numbers they want to see (anything above 30) but that it doesn't hurt to take them)

Not sure whether to wait for my next and last draw on Saturday to see if it goes down more or to just start them now
