Yup, a beta is a bloodtest that is typically every 2 days to make sure that you are doubling properly. Most successful pregnancies will see the hormone level double every 48 to 72 hours. It's a good way to check for miscarriage, ectopic, or for infertile women to monitor what is going on before anything can be seen on an ultrasound.
