    Default IVF - First HCG Beta really high - Twins?

    Hello, I was hoping to hear from ladies who have done IVF and their experiences with hcg levels.

    Im currently 4 weeks pregnant, my pregnancy was confirmed today via bloodtest. However ive known for 9 days already when I got a postitive on a hpt!

    My hcg today came in at 953, I had 2 embryos transferred 14 days ago today. When I had my son 3.5years ago, my first hcg level on the same day was around 125! Anyone else had a high hcg and had twins?

    Fyi: my embryo transfer was on 16/02 and I had two 3 day embryos transferred.

    Thanks

    That's a reasonably high beta so you're in with a good chance that both have taken. Have a look at betabase.info for some comparison rates for singleton and twin pregnancy betas.

    Congrats!

    My first level was 549 and I had triplets. it then went to 2360 in 3 days... 3 days after that 8000+++
    We lost the fraternal triplet at 11weeks ish.... and we have just had the identical twins 11.2.15.
    However.... our ds hcg first one was 500's too and he was the one and only.
    Id probably say just see what it is in a few days but chances are multiples..... our fs said on the first heartbeat scan we would probably only get one here safely. We have them both home

    My HCG levels werev high both pregnancies. I can't remember the level for the first but it was 800 odd for the second.

    Both times my 7 week scan showed that it had started as twins, but one had stopped developing. So I ended up with 2 x singletons.

    Goodluck

    Default IVF - First HCG Beta really high - Twins?

    My first pregnancy beta at 4 weeks was 1300 after a fresh single transfer. Singleton pregnancy.
    For this pregnancy my hcg was 831 at 4 weeks after a single FET. Singleton pregnancy this time too.
