Second HCG draw yesterday was 22,492, up from 17,586 two days earlier. That is a doubling time of about 5 days.
I don't know what that means. Some sources say HCG is supposed to double every 48-72 hours. Some sources say the 48-72 hours rule is only true when HCG is below 6,000. I say these betas are not all that useful!
Other things to consider: I only bled for a day and it has since stopped completely. My boobs are still sore. However, I don't feel as many uterine cramps as I did before the bleeding, so I feel like maybe things are not developing anymore.
My OB is conveniently away until Monday. Maybe I will call and harass her for an ultrasound. I will be 6 weeks tomorrow, so next week could show a heartbeat... or not.
