HcG Beta tests 48 or 72 hours apart?

Postby acubaby » Sat Jan 02, 2010 1:26 pm

I e-mailed my doctor and asked her if I could get a couple Hcg tests just for my own peace of mind. She happily agreed to and ordered the tests. She suggested I come in Tuesday and then again on Thursday but I was thinking it might be more accurate if I gave it a full 72 hours and took them on Monday and Thursday....What do you ladies think?

I know I'm being neurotic and everything seems fine but I just need to KNOW that everything is fine and I still have to wait 10 or 11 days for my ultrasound. lol
