User avatar Hello,
Usually this reading is done in succession to determine if the pregnancy is proceeding as it should. Numbers double every couple of days and if they stay the same or drop off it could indicate an impending miscarriage. The number alone does not mean that much, but along with the second blood draw, it can suggest a healthy pregnancy. Stay tuned and good luck.

Best wishes.
