hCG levels in early pregnancy usually double every 2-3 days with an increase of at least 60% in every two days. But this depends on the individual woman.

3 weeks LMP 5 – 50 mIU/ml
4 weeks LMP 5 – 426 mIU/ml
5 weeks LMP 18 – 7,340 mIU/ml
6 weeks LMP 1,080 – 56,500 mIU/ml
7-8 weeks LMP 7, 650 – 229,000 mIU/ml
9-12 weeks LMP 25,700 – 288,000 mIU/ml
13-16 weeks LMP 13,300 – 254,000 mIU/ml
17-24 weeks LMP 4,060 – 165,400 mIU/ml
25-40 weeks LMP 3,640 – 117,000 mIU/ml


Generally in the first few weeks of pregnancy hCG levels will double approximately every 48 hours. If you are experiencing any complication your doctor may do two blood tests 48 hours apart to ensure that your levels are doubling. There is a huge range of normal for hCG levels during pregnancy, a low level is not neccesarily a cause for concern. If your levels are doubling in 48 hour that is a great sign.
