High beta numbers

(19 posts)(12 voices)
  1. I am pregnant at 5.5 weeks after tranferring 2 5-day blasts using DE. I am very sick, nauseated, lightheaded, weak. Then starving in the same hour, followed by sick again. I have been pregnant once before 10 yr ago and never had symtoms like this so early on.

    The RE nurse said my numbers seemed quite high, maybe twins. I wanted to see those that have twins were your numbers similiar and sickness similar so early? On my 2nd HCG the RE told me the doubling time was "less than what they would like to see". It increased 64% over 48-hr and they want at least 66%. She also mentioned to me that twins usually have a much faster doubling rate.

    Anyone have similair numbers and not super-fast doubling end up with multiples?

    My HCG numbers were 9dp5dt 486
    12dp5dt 1023

  2. My numbers were 213 at 8dp6dt and 1428 at 12dp6dt with a doubling rate of about 33 - 36 hours and I am 18+ weeks with twins. Your starting number was quicte high, and although 2nd wasn't as fast a doubling time, there will be no way to know until the US one way or the other. None of the Dr's would speculate with our numbers one way or the other. I started with the MS around 6 weeks and lasted through 16 weeks. The high HCG will do that to you, but won't necessarilly be twins.

    Are you doing another HCG? When do they have you scheduled for an US?

    Wishing you the very best whether one or two.

  3. I had very high betas as well. They were doubling every 24 hrs in the beginning....I am pg with twins.....:-)

  4. they wanted to do a 3rd HCG but I had to leave on a 19 day trip that was already finalized. They day after I get back they will do my US. In 1 week. The thing that scares me is, although the 1st number was very high, the nurse said since it did not double over 48 hours like they want, we were in a state of "caution". And then they gave se ectopic instructions and what to do.

    I can't imagine a problem, since I am so sick and have so much breast soreness, but I guess never know until they do US.

    Just seemes like 486 was even high for twins, I would be happy for 1, fine with twins, and scared to death with more - if that is even possible.

  5. I had alot of the same concerns from my beta results. My Dr told me that ectopic pg's are usually not "high" numbers.....hang in there. Mine were higher than anyone I could find, I was alo afraid of possible having 3 even though we only transferred 2.......

  6. If one split so you ended up with twins the number wouldn't be higher. It is also possible that there were two and then one stopped, thereby slowing the doubling rate. I had a friend who had lower numbes than mine, doubling times like yours, and she is having twins. I think it is so easy for us to start imaging so many scenarios, but with your doubling time and sickness, etc, I think you are fine and have either a really strong singleton or twins. I think your US will go just fine upon your return!

    Best -

  7. Hi Susan,

    I remember you from the PR thread last year. Congrats on your pgcy! Maybe I'm wrong, but I always thought they wanted the beta to double within 48-72 hours? I know it's hard not to worry, but I think that sounds fine to me. It also sounds like multiples, not ectopic.

    Good luck with your u/s-

  8. when i was preggers with twins my betas were

    14dpo--373
    16dpo --699

    BUT mt friend was preggeers with twins and her betas were

    14dpo 192
    16dpo=381

    my singelton preg--- 14dpo 232

    so its hard to say by betas how many...

  9. its so hard to tell with betas alone. I am almost 13 weeks pregnant with twins and my betas were 8dp6dt 186 and 10dp6dt 307 so you see doubling time not fast and numbers not SUPER high but there they are hangin out nice quick heartbeats. GOOD LUCK!

  10. Hi there

    Due to OHSS they did my betas early I was a 5 day transfer and we did my 1st beta 6 dt it was 132.6 then 2 days after it was 332, then 2 days later it was 499 then 3 days after it was 2100 around there.

    I had 2 healthy twins that are going to be 5 in April

    Good luck

  11. It's hard to guess how many...only the ultrasound can tell you. If 1 of the embryos has split it's possible you could have triplets. It's probably twins, but you never know.
    Good Luck !

  12. I've been reading your posts and I can finally join in on the fun.

    I got my first beta from the b/w yesterday, 13 dpo at 399!!!

    I found this web site that shows that I'm even high for trips. It is great to obsess with: betabase.info

    I have another beta tomorrow, so we'll see if I'm doubling okay. I started getting +HPTs at 9dpo and very pregnant feeling at 12dpo. Hoping I am not doing the octomom thing in there.

    That was funny. Thanks for the laugh during my stressful time. Good luck with second beta

  14. 2nd beta is 949 at 15 dpo. There is a major party going on in my pants!!!

    I have seen people with lower counts with twins, but high number similar to yours that just have one in there. You never know---believe me each pregnancy is different. I had more pregancy symptoms with my singleton then I did with my twins, but the fatigue part was the whole time with my twins.

    Best of luck! The good news is that you sound like you have a great pregnancy going for you.

  16. Morrison - what the hell are you doing stalking the beta board anyway? You have no reason to be here. Shoo - you pest.

    Hey cristin26, I joke because I'm just ecstatic to have a beta to post at all. I never have before. At a little over 4 weeks, you are right, though. Right now I'm trying to get beyond 5 weeks, which is the longest I've held a pregnancy. First things first!

    Thanks for the kind words and congrats on your kiddos!

  18. Hi, my first beta 14 days post ovulation was over 300.

    my beta numbers are very high and have doubled every 2 days but i am told that high beta numbers don't necessarily mean that much.

    i'm truly completely fine with whatever will be will be.

    i don't like waiting to find out but i will be entirely OK with whatever it is.

    i was looking forward to my next cycle and setting up the plans for the next cycle when i received the high and doubling beta results and i liked cycling better than the waiting period- although it's always nice to be PG, of course.

    Jen Jen is a fake. Read her post history on the General and NY board. Her posts speak for themselves. She is a fraud and a phony and probably a man. For some reason he posts here pretending to be an IVF patient when it's clear as day from his rants and lies he's not. He lies so much he forgets his story (one day he was cycling in NY then he wasn't then he was but was also cycling elsewhere) he even said he ordered meds last year and said he was cycling but wasn't. I don't think he knows you can search all over this forum to find history posts. He forgets his lies.

    He probably plays with himself while conversing with women here and IF issues. Disgusting vile lying person.
