Does anyone think these are possible twin hCH levels? We only transferred 1 embryo, but I'm just curious if maybe it split? We have our first ultrasound on 11/14 so I'll know then for sure, just wondering what you gals think. Thanks!

Positive blood :bfp:

Beta 10 dpt 149
Beta 12 dpt 337
Beta 19 dpt 4535

Say thanks for the support and click on a banner ad!

Was it a 5 day transfer?

If it was a 5 day transfer, those are pretty close to my singleton numbers:

6 days after transfer: 33
8 days after transfer: 95
11 days after transfer: 505
18 days after transfer: over 9000

My OB was convinced it was twins - but it wasn't.

You never know - anything is possible but congrats on some nice strong numbers!!

I would agree that it sounds like 1. You may always be a low hcg producer though. My 13dpt was 840 and I started out with twins. I did not have a repeat.

Either way - you're pregnant! Congrats!

Totally normal for a singleton

For comparison mine were 738 at 10dp5dt and 2500 12dp5dt with a pregnancy that started out as twins.

I agree that it sounds like a singleton, although numbers really don't offer too much insight.

Here are my numbers with the twins-
10dp5dt- 238
12dp5dt- 545
15dp5dt- 2499

While we've all seen those w/low #'s turn out to be twins (Charity!) and those w/really high #'s turn out to be singletons (Me!), my money is on a strong singleton.

W/my 1st IP's, we only transferred one. The RE only does a single beta at 12dp5dt (unless it falls on a weekend) and as long as it's 150 or higher, he doesn't order a 2nd. Well, mine was 763 at 12dp5dt! I was told that the RE was convinced that it split and I was carrying twins. He was willing to bet on it. Went in for my U/S and we were so sure there'd be 2 in there...but only the single 1 we transferred. The RE was floored by that. He told me that was the highest beta he'd had for a singleton at that point. You just never know.

Congrats, either way!! I've just learned throughout the years to not guess how many babies by the beta numbers. I've seen first betas come back really high and there only be 1 baby and really low and there are 2.

Good luck and I can't wait to hear the u/s results! :ohyeah:
