Hello thankyou for approaching DoctorSpring with your query.
I have referred through your previous questions.

Yes it is normal. Beta hCG doubles in about 48-72 hours initially during pregnancy. You have repeated beta hCG in 23 hours and it is close to double. Which is a good sign and is normal.
Please visit your doctor on 13th of March and repeat the beta hCG and go for transvaginal pelvic ultrasound.

I hope this has helped. Feel free to follow up thankyou

Patient replied :

thanks alot
in my country they didnt use transvaginal pelvic ultrasound in pregnancy as they worry of misscarraige
so , when sac and heart beats

In that case I would advise you to get a transabdominal ultrasound on 2nd april as by then sac and heart beat would be seen on transabdominal ultrasound.
I hope this helps.
Good luck.
Take care.

Patient replied :

thanks dr
when it is safe to travel by plane ( 6 hr flight ) first class


AIr travel is generally safe during pregnancy. If you have a history of miscarriage air travel can be postponed to the second trimester - that is between 14- 28 weeks. DO NOT travel beyond 34 weeks of pregnancy.

Early travel (before 14 weeks) is generally safe, but in that case you will need to get your Doctors opinion on whether yours is safe and uncomplicated pregnancy.

Hope this helps
Feel free to ask followups
Thank you
