Hcg doubling faster than normal

Patient : I am almost 5 weeks pregnant. My LMP was Sept 1st. I had a tubal reversal that went perfectly. My Hcg on Sept 26th was 276. My Hcg on Sept 29th was 700 and my progesterone was 42. My Hcg on Oct 2nd was 3806. I have a sonogram scheduled on Oct 11th. The Hcg was doubling every 52 hrs. Now it is doubling at 29 hrs. Does this faster doubling rate mean healthy pregnancy, twins, or is there concern for ectopic or other issues?
