Thought I had a miscarriage, ultrasound showed that I didn’t, please advise?

Hello – I am currently 5 weeks 4 days pregnant. Over the weekend I had a scare, and thought I had a miscarriage. However, the ultrasound showed that I didn’t. I did a beta three days ago, and my result was 17,243 and today I did a beta and the result is 31,988 with a doubling time of 78 hours. At this stage of the pregnancy, I read that beta numbers slow down. My beta numbers were doubling very fast last week and until 5 weeks 1 day. Are my current numbers (doubling at a rate of 78 hours) ok for week five? Or does it have to be exactly every 48-72 hours? thank you.

Age: 34

It Is okay nothing to worry about, however this may indicate having twins ,
So recommend another ultrasound at 6 weeks
Good Luck

The values are not abnormal as some variations are normal individually..

So do not worry..

Keep repeating the ultrasound and blood tests for progress..

You are still pregnant no worries . Results are not that sharp it differs from woman to woman..
