    So my last hcg count was 15,200ish on december the 2nd, my next hcg count..5 days later was 30,954. My doctor seems worried...I'm nervous... on the 7th when they got the blood count of 30,954 I was 5 weeks 5 days it looks like it took them 5 days to double while before that they were doubling every day and a half... thoughts?

    The higher your HCG gets the longer it takes to double hun.
    When your numbers are that high it could very well take 5 days to double :)
    I dont think it is anything to be worried about

    Your doc shouldn't be worried honey...after HCG level pass 10,000 they take longer to double.....you should ask doc for ultrasound....after HCG passes 10,000 it is the most relaible way to monitor pregnancy, not HCG levels. Massive hugs, I am sure everything is fine.

    I found this table from the web with the hCG level during pregnancy
    https://babymed.com/FAQ/Content.aspx?14374

    If the table is correct, it looks like your level is a little bit higher than average... Hope that everything will turn out fine for you. When are you having a scan?

    Ah hun - I heard that HGC can take 48-72 hours to double when the figures get higher. Keep yourself warm and well and I am sure you will be back on here Monday with some lovely news x
