you can check the numbers against this database.  i found it very helpful when i had my betas taken, especially when my FET was a slow riser but my fresh transfer was on the high side.  both singletons.

LilliV :  I just got my ultrasound and talking wih the doctor twins may not show up until week 7+ on the ultrasound. Which is so wild to me!!! So with your ultrasound, keep that in mind. Wow fast delivery is genetic? Its good that you know, espeically for number 2.

Ahhh that’s so exciting!! 🙂 

I also had very high levels but I’m only having one baby (thank goodness, haha – we are not prepared in any capacity for twins!) but I do have a friend that had similar levels to mine and is pregnant with twin boys!

Keep us updated!

LilliV :  Super exciting! I am terrified of having twins, so I’m convinced I will have them. I see identical twin girls all the time, and I know that we will have girls, so I’m afraid it’s a sign LOL

LilliV :  Hey girl. I just got my first beta back. At 10 days past transfer I’m at 358, so if mine doubles appropriately, I will be close to your number at 12 days. As you know, I did not do AH, so my guess is they are just high betas and nothing more. When do you get an ultrasound?!

I used to be a case manager at a surrogacy agency. What I learned from that experience was that sometimes twins had high HCG, and sometimes they didn’t. There were a bunch of times the surro’s HCG was super high and everyone was convinced it was twins, but it was just one.

An RE once told me that if you have two embryos that implanted, then the HCG could be higher because there are two placentas. If you have one embryo that splits, it’s also likely that there’s just one placenta so a lower HCG.

LilliV :  I had my ultrasound and my embryo split. I have two sacs now aka identical twins. I was hysterical at the office and all morning. My hcg was normal and at my last ultrasound there was only one sac.

LilliV :  also my symptoms are much stronger and I’m already not fitting in clothes. Also the doctor told me identical twins is a 2%!!!!
