Your levels look really good to me!! Way more than doubling!  Do you know how far along you are ?  Did your dr. say they would do an ultrasound once your levels get high enough that they could see something?  Hope they continue to rise for you!!  Good luck, I know the wait is the hardest part!  I'm going crazy waiting for my ultrasound on Fri.  I had to wait 2 weeks from my last beta test til my ultrasound.

With my last pregnancy that ended in m/c in Oct. I went every 2 days for about a week and a half.  With this pregnancy I went for my pregnancy blood test and it came back with low levels so they had me come back 2 days later and they doubled (however they were still a little low, but within the range for 5 weeks).  After my 2nd test they had me wait a week because they were doubling where as with my last preg. they never doubled and were low.  After a weeks wait they came back as doubling every 3 days.  Now I'm waiting to get in for an ultrasound to see if we see something instead of doing betas.
