Q: 34.2 hour doubling time?

My hcg levels went from 491 on Monday to 2112 on Thursday. That seemed like a huge jump to me. My doctor was pleased. However, I noticed the doubling time was much faster than the average 48-72. Anyone else ever had this happen? Dr. Google tells me fast doubling could be nothing, could mean twins, or molar pregnancy (scary!!!).

Thanks for your answer :) I am glad I'm not the only one with faster than average doubling times. Twins would be great but I am well aware betas can't for sure predict multiples though. Also figured molar pregnancies are pretty rare...

I had three beta draws and each time, my beta doubled at a 30-hour rate. No twins and no molar pregnancy here :) Betas are only mildly predictive of twins, you can have a high/fast-rising beta with a singleton pregnancy. And molar pregnancies are extremely uncommon, so try not to worry about that too much. More than likely, this is just a good sign :) Congrats!
