HCG levels, does that seem normal?

Patient

Q: My HCG count was 18000 on 2.19 and 28000 on 2.21. (5wks 3days and 5wks 5 days)
How does that sound?

Symptoms:  Pregnancy
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

There is a more than 66 % increase in the value of beta hCG in 48 hrs which is good and shows foetal viability and that the initial growth at present is adequate and the pregnancy is evolving correctly.

Hope this helps.
Regards
