I got my BFP on New years day at 9dpo and my tests have progressively darkened. WE don’t get betas in the UK but I was recently in a position to get betas down outside the UK when I went visiting and my beta numbers came back quite high, though in the range but high range.
Do you think this indicates twins …not triplets please
21DPO beta was 13314(High!!!) Progesterone was 117.7nmol/l
23DPO beta was 22819
What are your experiences. Dr google has told me a lot of stuff haha

I think it could be one or it could be twins. I used betabase.info to see beta numbers when I was going through that but I didn’t get any betas taken after 18dpo with my twins so I don’t know how mine compare to yours. I think you should try to get an ultrasound as that is the only way to know how many babies you are having. Even at my 16 week appointment my uterus was only measuring 17 weeks so without an ultrasound I still wouldn’t know conclusively that there were two.

I’d say it’s likely 1 because the doubling is just that, doubling not quadrupling or something like that. Beta numbers can vary hugely, it’s the doubling that is important. Personally I had beta numbers that were out of singleton range (high), and average for twin range, and doubled very fast (every 24 hours or so). I have one baby in me.

Thank you for yoru response. I did have a look also but it said when your betas are over 10000 teh doubling time is 96 hours. I used an online calculator and it said 61 hours but yes an ultrasound is for sure a better way to tell than tryign to guess because from Dr google, it is so widely varying.
I agree with you ,it couldbe one or both. ooo you have twins. so exciting. Good luck Mama and thanks for teh response

Those are crazy high betas! I have no idea what it could mean but best of luck to you whether it be 1 or 2!

at 24dpo, I was at 51,000. Only 1 baby. Numbers alone can’t really tell you anything.

BOY OH BOY, That is high but it’s good to see people with such high numbers. we are not a majority. i just wanted to know that it was normal. thanks
