Beta Numbers

There is always a question when you get your beta numbers. If the number is lower than expected or higher, what does that mean?

Well if you have anything that registers above 5 units on the scale that means you are pregnant. The number should double every 30.9 hours. That is why you go in for 3 beta numbers.

Here are some web sites that have charts. Some even have charts for twins and triplets.

HCG Levels
Early Pregnancy
WebMd - This web site doesn't have a chart, but it has some really good information
American Pregnancy Association

I hope this helps with your questions.
