HCG Level Quardrupled in in 72 hours

So let me start by saying that I am very early in my pregnancy, (about 5 weeks right now)
and I have been getting blood tests done every 72 hours. the first 2 seemed to double just fine, 140 to 388.

but when i got my 3rd blood result, it jumped from 388 to 1,718 in just 72 hours. Is this normal? Should I be concerned at all that it jumped that high in just a short amount of time? Thanks for your input.

HCG values vary greatly from one pregnancy to another. As long as the doubling rate is met you should be fine. What does the doctor say? Are twins possible?

I only got to speak to a nurse today, my doctor left early, so i did not have the chance to speak to her. I'm not sure if twins are possible or not. that's why i was wondering about the sudden big jump in levels.
