Typically levels will double every two days, so this is a bit lower than expected.  Is your doctor continuing to monitor and test your levels?  There are many times I have heard of that levels don't double as quickly as expected- but everything ends up being fine.  It can be a bit of a warning sign, but at this point it's something just to watch.  The hard part is the waiting it- so hang in there.  Your levels are going up, so up is a good direction.  I'd request another test of your HCG levels, just to get a bit more information and to continue to monitor things.
