@Charlie74 yep continue using same vial till you run out. I used to rub alcohol wipe over top of vial each day.
Tahli that's a great number for 12dpo. I stopped testing before I got to 1000 but I can tell you at 4.5 weeks all that could be seen was a shadow. I'll send you my dates and hcg tomorrow because I just can't be fagged firing up my laptop, sorry. I'm so sleep deprived and exhausted its ridiculous. If it's not my bladder, or he prednisone, it's my two cats antagonising each other or giving their scratching post hell in the middle of the night then harassing the hell out of me on my mid night toilet stops wanting food. I was going to have a sleep when I got home today but didn't get there either. I'm very happy for you still though! If you double every two days that will make your hcg higher than mine was at 16dpo. Eek!
Ta @Chiefsgirl. My progesterone was 125 on testing day last unsuccessful cycle thanks to the POI so maybe with some extra pregnancy progesterone it brings it up to the 175. No idea really!
Ive finally just got some time to check out the babymed and betabase sites. Thanks so much BiB, Chiefsgirl and Julie.
As you know my hcg today was 67 at 12dpo. Babymed says the average is 25 (but ranges from 0-50). Betabase says the singleton average is 47 and twins average is 86. Hmm, interesting. I'm very much looking forward to Wed's test.
I take back my earlier statement about the hcg not getting over 1000. We got to around 7800 from memory. I must be tired. Ok I'm curious now, firing up the laptop!
Ta Julie. Very helpful esp when you're so completely and utterly shattered. At what stage were your twins confirmed?
Ta hun. I'd have it done at Monash Ultrasound for Women, so a proper clinic. I'll just have to bide my time and see how this week pans out. And of course be incredibly incredibly grateful for being pregnant in the first place. Thanks as always for all of your advice.
My cat also kept me awake for hours lastnight. Here's to both of us getting a better nights sleep. Zzzzzz......
