A normal doubling time is supposed to be every 2-3 days, right? 40 hr is still less than 2 days. even though p4 went down a bit, it's still nice and high. When is your u/s?

Doubling time isn't always consistent... I even stalled between my 2nd and 3rd betas (talk about stress) and they weren't as high as yours.

My clinic didn't continue to check P4 after the 1st beta to my knowledge, or at least didn't give me the number. P4 fluctuates, too, so I honestly don't think you have anything to worry about!

Awesome numbers... when is your u/s? My RE did my first u/s once beta hit 1500, so I'm assuming they're doing yours soon??

They vary, but what you call "normal" or ideal is actually for the number to double every 72 hours, not 48. You're doing well!

well wouldnt it have been 960 on feb 4 therefore be 1920 on feb 6 if we are looking at straight 48 hour doubling times? so your feb. 6 number is higher than that. i dont get where you are getting your doubling times.

Cooper called and said everything looks good. She said the doubling time is 2 to 3 days and mine was even faster and I should stop freaking out. and she said P4 is normal. END OF FREAKED OUT (for today)

Ps: thank you all for your quick and fast respond, it meant a lot to me and made me feel so much better.XOXO

You're still nice and high, so I wouldn't worry. I have much lower progesterone levels even now (at 24w pg) and my baby has been measuring 2 weeks ahead.

well wouldnt it have been 960 on feb 4 therefore be 1920 on feb 6 if we are looking at straight 48 hour doubling times? so your feb. 6 number is higher than that. i dont get where you are getting your doubling times.
nevermind...i was just confused bc people dont usually complain about a 40 hour doubling time. mine were intially a 36 hour doubling time then a 49 hour doubling time at 12, 14 and 16 dpo.
